The other day, Russian communication operators have confirmed their desire in a pilot mode to test the systems necessary to implement the "law of Yarovoi", which should come into force on July 1 of this year. Participants of the communication market already now would like to get an idea of how difficult and costly will be its implementation. Fears of the executors of the "law of Yarovoi" are easy to understand - the total cost of its implementation is approximately 5 trillion rubles. It is clear that telecom companies will have to cover their costs primarily at the expense of consumers.
Communication operators, in order to study the market and evaluate the costs, are ready to provide their capacities provided that equipment for the pilot SORM suppliers (systems of technical means for ensuring the functions of operational-search activities) will be provided free of charge. They even turned to the White House with a request to finally decide on the feasibility of conducting a pilot project. The thing is that the FSB categorically opposed the "pilot period". On assurances of its representatives, for today already there are all technical possibilities for realization of the law. And there's nothing to "pilot" there. The voice of the FSB can be decisive in the issue of creating pilots, since this service is the main beneficiary of the law. According to representatives of the FSB, one of the manufacturers of SORM - OOO "Special Technologies" - promised by the end of the year to develop equipment for the implementation of the law: it is about equipment that can store and transmit large amounts of information. According to the "law of Yarovoy", Internet companies are obliged from July 1, 2018 to store information about the facts of receiving and transmitting data for at least one year, and telecom operators - for three years. The content of messages, including text, voice and video, will need to be stored for up to six months.
Many market experts are skeptical about the practical benefits of the law itself: firstly, terabytes of continuous computer information is simply impossible to process. Secondly, a large amount of traffic is encrypted with international protocols and the problem is not even to hack them (although many experts think this is impossible), but also that potentially such hacking can result in retaliation-isolation from the world's payment systems. By the way, even 15 years ago, when the Anglo-American surveillance system Echelon intercepted all the correspondence of the terrorists planning the September 11 attacks, it turned out that the terrorists were not particularly "coded". The correspondence was read and studied retroactively. It was not possible to use the interception to prevent terrorist attacks. It is effective only such surveillance, which is conducted against very specific suspects, point-like. The interception of the correspondence of 92 million without huge operational work will not help in any way. That is, the "law Yarovoi" - no panacea from terrorists. But it is quite obvious that it promises huge profits to system manufacturers, who ensure the implementation of the law. By the way, here, too, it is worth mentioning: "manufacturers" in the full sense of the manufacturer are not. It is only necessary to purchase equipment from a narrow circle of companies certified by the FSB. Certified means that invented, for example, in the US software and the "hardware" assembled in China can no longer be purchased, either from the manufacturer or from a wholesaler abroad. But you can have a narrow group of commercial companies, with licenses from the FSB, who purchase this equipment abroad, are imported to Russia and, after certification, sell it to telecoms. The "sticker" that is put on such equipment is more expensive than the equipment itself, and, quite likely, it makes sense to implement the "law of Yarovoi".
One of the brightest stars in this chain is Mikhail Serov, a billionaire from St. Petersburg, who is on the international wanted list on charges of 30 episodes of pedophilia. It was his (perhaps the former, and perhaps not) Special Technologies, as it was written above, that convinced the FSB that all equipment for the implementation of the "Yarovoi law" by the end of the year would be ready. And, accordingly, no free pilot periods are required for Russian business. It's time to start paying!
The rise and "flight" of the mister pedophile
Mikhail Serov never flashed in the pages of the business press. Although the turnover of "Special Technologies" is such that the company could be included in the TOP-50 of IT companies in Russia. But we do not find the "Special Technologies" in either the ratings or in the reviews. The business of selling equipment for SORM is done differently: quietly and imperceptibly. The circle of these people is narrow.
The name of Mikhail Serov really thundered, in October 2014, when it became clear that the director and the main owner of the "Special Technologies" was a person involved in the criminal case initiated by the Investigative Directorate of the Criminal Investigation Service of the Russian Federation in the Saratov Region on the grounds of crimes provided for in Part 4 of Article 134 and Part 3 Article 135 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Sexual intercourse and other acts of a sexual nature with a person under the age of sixteen" and "Committing sexual acts without violence by a person who has reached the age of eighteen asta, against a person who has not attained the age of sixteen, committed against two or more persons ", respectively). Serov was charged in absentia charged, later it was announced in the federal and then the international wanted list.
According to investigators, Mikhail Serov specially acquired for a front person apartment in the center of Saratov, was having sex with young girls. In the case of 8 victims and dozens of episodes, and, they all seemed part of a well-functioning system. At the same time, the Investigative Committee initiates another criminal case on the basis of the elements of the crime provided for in Article 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Organization of a Criminal Community"). It turns out that Mikhail Serov had his own group of pimps who purposefully looked for him Saratov girls. The case file did not contain information about violence - pimps persuaded schoolgirls (usually from well-off families) to "talk" with a businessman to earn money in this way.
Mysteriously, as a measure of restraint from Serov take only a pledge not to leave the place. Serov is hiding from Russia. Somehow, all the sources that illuminates in the press, wrote that he fled to Sweden. Accordingly, in October 2014 Serov stopped appearing at work.
But the firm should work! The company's turnover reaches several billion rubles. "The Law of Yarovoi" is not even in sight. But somebody must supply SORM systems. And equipment for SORM is required to purchase any provider starting its business. After receiving the license, he will within three months coordinate the SORM plan with the regional FSB department. And here he is pointed to a specific supplier company, in which it is necessary to purchase equipment. It is clear that the regional administration of the FSB of St. Petersburg nodded at the "Special Technologies" Mikhail Serov.
It's hard to keep a business when you're on the run, and even on such an article. But Serov and his patrons manage to work in such conditions. Mikhail Serov owned 51% of the company's share capital. The rest of the share capital held Larisa Kuznetsova, Chief Accountant of the limited liability company. Larisa Kuznetsova is the widow of Oleg Krivobokov. That in turn was the "godfather" of Serov. The fact is that in the 90s Mikhail Serov got on the hook of the KGB as a manufacturer of "scanners" - devices that allowed to connect to home radiotelephones. Very many citizens in the 90th came huge bills for talking with Vietnam, or, for example, China. They became victims of illegal bargaining points, the equipment for which was manufactured by Serov. But the "kind" curator of this case from the KGB Oleg Krivobokov decided to "attach" the ward to the security business of former colleagues. Gradually, the relationship between Krivobokov and Serov turned into a joint project - "Special Technologies". Krivobokov provided orders and communications, and Serov implementation of orders. And then Krivobokov passed away. And at the end of 2014, his widow, Kuznetsova, needs something to do with business. Serov - on the run. She makes changes in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, appointing herself as general director. She reasoned as follows: "Special Technologies" belong not only to Serov, but to her, that's why, while Serov is on the international wanted list, it is better for documents to be in the company's office under the control of a co-owner who does not have conflicts with the law. But, a pedophile who is on the run can be a very serious force. Kuznetsov is under pressure: Serov himself threatens to destroy it. Kuznetsova's appeals to the FSB are ignored. Finally, a criminal case is brought against her for falsifying the entry in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities. From the office of "Special Technologies" kidnapped more than 60 hard drives. To her come "walkers" from Serov and try to convince that Serov "drove the Saratov cops" who are trying to capture the recreation center "Razliv", which owns "Special Technologies". True, this base on the banks of the Volga has long been called the "recreation house of the FSB" and Serov in Saratov was not that often a frequent visitor, but a frequent owner.
To fight for the bright name of Mikhail Serov is connected Andrei Karaulov and issues a touching pseudo-authorial work called "Harassment of Serov".
The argument of Karaulov is simple: in Saratov, injustice always takes place. The firm in St. Petersburg, and the case in Saratov. It's strange. Pedophilia is the most unfair hit on a person's reputation, it's worse than throwing drugs. Here with Serov and managed. They fabricated the case. In order to argue this brilliant version, neither Karaulov nor the film's customers had any facts. Since then, the author of the "Moment of Truth" about the crystal-clear Serov did not recall. And if he remembered, he would have had to somehow explain the scale of the "falsifications".
July 11, 2016 Saratov Regional Court sentenced four young women. The court found that during the period from August 2011 to September 2014, "local residents, acting as part of an organized group, searched the territory of the city of Saratov and delivered to one of the flats houses in the Volzhsky district under the age of sixteen girls to commit with them 49-year-old man of depraved actions and sexual intercourse for a large monetary reward, in order to satisfy his sexual desires. " The victims of such actions are recognized as eight minors. During the investigation, more than 200 witnesses were interrogated, at least 30 inspections of objects and places of incidents, and more than 60 forensic examinations. The result of the investigative activity was 50 volumes of the criminal case. The court sentenced two malefactors to a sentence of imprisonment for 2 and 3 years. They have mitigating circumstances - during the investigation they managed to get pregnant. And two young ladies received 13 years of imprisonment.
The rewards that the pimps got were up to 100 thousand rubles for the girl. The last was not more than a quarter. Nitochka reached out after a schoolteacher in one of the victims saw that new iPhone.
The scale of the "falsified case" is impressive. Is not that so, Mr. Karaulov?
Than the heart has calmed down?
It is clear that as a result, Serov's "Special Technologies" seemed to be taken away. The company was rewritten for three people who had not previously engaged in any business; For this, apparently, the signature of Serov on a number of documents was falsified. And the "business", carrying golden eggs, continued its work.
But there are nuances. In June 2015, the pedophile Serov had been on the run for four months. And now there is a Moscow LLC with the same name. Founder: Serov Ivan Ivanovich - the elderly father of Mikhail Ivanovich. The authorized capital is 10 thousand rubles. Daddy's old. There is no experience in this field. It all looks, at first glance, like a one-day company. But already on November 17, 2015, this company has already received a license to develop, supply and maintain "special technical means intended for secretly receiving information" in the center of the Federal Security Service of Russia for protection of state secret. Pope Mikhail Serov has some incredible credit for trust: the company started 25 days before the receipt of the FSB license to execute state orders for the supply and modernization of SORM solutions. And orders went: the first order, for 13.756 million, came from the parent Rostelecom, and after another month and a half the second, from the Volgograd branch. Then came the contracts in the Tver branch of Rostelecom and in the State Research Institute of Information Technologies and Telecommunications. For the first three months we earned almost 23 million rubles.
It is clear that Serov and Kuznetsova had their patrons in the FSB. Probably they agreed. Search is a search, and common sense is common sense. Therefore, the FSB of Russia understood perfectly who Serov Mikhail was and who his father was. And who gets a license for SORM. We must hasten to monetize the five-trillion "law of Yarovoi." From orders for the modernization of equipment from the "Special Technologies" now there will be no release. And St. Petersburg, and Moscow. If, of course, they have different real owners.
And what about Serov? As they say, everyone has their own shortcomings.
