"Criminal" top managers?
It is no secret that the "daughter" of "Gazprom" have huge embezzlement place. This was repeatedly told the Russian opposition and fighters against corruption. In late December 2015, the media published extensive material about the machinations of the General Director of LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" Kirill Seleznev and his associates. Such publications are increasingly shed light on the process of asset stripping of the "daughter" of "Gazprom".
However, the theft of the structure of the gas monopoly, according to the media, involved a former head of OOO "Gazprom mezhregiongaz Stavropol" and JSC "Stavropolkraigas" Raul Arashukov, which currently holds the position of Adviser to Director General of OOO "Gazprom mezhregiongaz".
Experts believe that Raul Arashukov can control the process of transmission of "kickbacks" from "fiddling" with the assets of "Gazprom" in the interests of Kirill Seleznev. According to fighters against corruption, before Mr. Arashukov able to "pump" the financial flows from the gas supply of the population in the "coffers" of companies controlled by it.
Now Arashukov retained its influence in regional structures of "Gazprom" is largely due to its proximity to Mr Seleznev, which is subject to general director of OOO "Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Pyatigorsk" Arkady Derevianko. Perhaps this is why Derevyanko made head of the branch of LLC "Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Pyatigorsk" in Karachay-Cherkessia Ruslan Arashukova, which accounts nephew Raul Arashukovu.
Gas "mafia"
Experts do not exclude that the "clan Arashukovyh" can organize the collection of "kickbacks" for Kirill Seleznev, some of which are already in the very chapter of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" can be transmitted to the head of "Gazprom" Alexei Miller.
It is no secret that Miller and Seleznev known each other since the "dashing 90". At that time, Seleznev was the main expert group on investment activity coordination of JSC "Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg". But the director of the Investment and Development JSC "Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg" was himself a Aleksey Miller.

Later, going to the "Gazprom" Miller "pulled" back and Seleznev. Thus, the proposed "chain of rollbacks" to Miller with "the south" can go from Arashukova through Selezneva. Journalists claim that Seleznyov takes care of his "assistant to the Caucasus" Arashukova. Experts compare the situation in the LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" with the Italian-American mafia, where Seleznev plays the role of "godfather" (mafia boss) and Arashukov - his faithful "consigliere" (counselor and facilitator for illegal activities).
Connectivity and Selezneva Arashukova with the withdrawal of assets
Experts believe that only thanks to the head of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" his current adviser was able to establish asset stripping. In a number of information sources there is evidence that after only a few months after the appointment of Kirill Seleznev CEO "Mezhregiongas" Raul Arashukov "mastered" a fundamentally new payment scheme with gas consumers, redirecting financial flows to the accounts of specially created companies, which was headed by his relatives.
Thus, from 1999 to 2004, 000 "Stavropolregiongaz" through the efforts of all of the same Arashukova consisted in a contractual relationship with the capital firms, which all payables for gas has been transferred by the assignment of contracts.
As a result, consumers Stavropol "blue fuel" to transfer funds are not in the "Stavropolregiongaz" and the mysterious companies - at specially opened accounts in the commercial "Gazenergoprombank". Later it turned out that the total funding shortfall 000 "Stavropolregiongaz" as a result of "fraud" Raul Arashukova was more than 1 billion rubles.

The native Arashukova Karachay-Cherkessia former CEO "Stavropolregiongaz" at different times were created dozens of one-day firms, which listed a lot of money. It is clear that derived in this way means needed to somehow legitimize. This resulted in the legalization of buying real estate almost throughout the Stavropol.
It turns out that for many years Kirill Seleznev deliberately "turned a blind eye" to finance the withdrawal process of the subsidiaries of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" Raul Arashukovym. However, now everything points to the fact that Seleznev not just "a blind eye" to Arashukova fraud, and is with him "to share".
Reliable "roof"
The experts have every reason to believe that Kirill Seleznev personal "roof" Raul Arashukova, as has been repeatedly adviser LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" evaded prosecution.
So, for example, in 2008 the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation initiated a series of inspections of structures that led Arashukov. He had even been searched, but the detention has not been made. In 2010, the Central Investigation Department of the Moscow police opened a criminal case under Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (fraud) in relation to the general director of "Stavropolregiongaz" and "Stavropolkraigas" Raul Arashukova. Top manager suspected of financial abuse. However, and here to the arrest and trial is not reached.
It was only in December 2011, after a visit to the Stavropol region of the then Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin Raul Arashukov was dismissed. However, immediately after that Seleznev gave Arashukovu post his adviser. This once again confirms the version that Raoul Arashukov goes "under the roof" Kirill Seleznev.
The battle for power
Do not forget that Arashukova Selezneva and "native" not only the shared "cut" Finance "Gazprom" (which they blamed fighters against corruption), but also common political interests. The thing is that Seleznev uses Arashukova for dialogue with the local elites of the Caucasus, with whom the adviser of LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" has already established relationships.
Not a small role in this is the fact that Raul Arashukov is a deputy of the National Assembly of Karachayevo-Cherkessia (KCR) from the party "United Russia", and his son Rauf has served as the head of Khabezsky District Administration.
The country has already started rumors that soon Arashukov Jr. will lead the Karachay-Cherkessia, but for this he will have to shift from his position as head of Karachay-Cherkessia Rashid Temrezova.

It is no secret that the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kudyrov maintains very cordial relations with the head of Khabezsky District KCR and even calls Rauf Arashukova his brother. It is believed that Kadyrov with Arashukovym Sr. "push" chapter Khabezsky District a leader KCR. January 8, 2016 it was announced that Ramzan Kudyrov and Rauf Arashukov met in "informal setting".
It is possible that in the course of these negotiations, they once again confirmed its plans for the change of power in Karachaevo-Cherkessia. Political analysts say that at the federal level transition Rauf Arashukova to head KCR lobbied personally Kirill Seleznev using enormous influence Alexey Miller.
Thugs and murderers?
But what kind of people support Mr Seleznev in the south of Russia? Still, the "Clan Arashukovyh" in the first place, goes notoriety as the "near-criminal community."
For example, previously the leader of the youth village Abazian Psyzh Amerbi Hachukov told about the involvement in the killings Rauf Arashukova known public figure Aslan Zhukov and adviser to the head of the republic Fral Shebzuhova which supposedly was to take the post of prime minister of Karachay-Cherkessia.
Moreover, the "clan Arashukovyh" is rumored to be linked to organized crime. For example, Rauf Arashukova previously seen in the company of Shamil Magomedov (thief-in-law, in certain circles, known as the "Smolyan") Sagid Murtazaliev (he is accused of terrorism financing), Magomed Magomedov (a member of an organized criminal group "Machadinskaya" named "Mage-lronburg") and other "influential people".

And when in 2008, KCR were local elections, Rauf Arashukov to intimidate competitors generally rode at the head of several dozen trucks with gunmen and "support group" and literally "terrorized" all candidates to local authorities of Adygea-Hablskomu, Abaza and Habezskomu areas.
In addition, through the LLC "Adiyuh", which was established by the son of Raul directly Arashukova Rauf, could be displayed Finance LLC "Stavropolregiongaz", LLC "Kavkazregiongaz" and JSC "Stavropolkraigas". It is known to the conclusion of these finance companies, when control of them still belonged to Raul Arashukovu, were involved in the following structures "Stavropolkarton" OOO (Stavropol), Ltd. "Ideal-SK" (Stavropol) Ltd. "Artex-South" ( g, Stavropol), LLC "Moidodyr" (Stavropol), LLC "Adiyuh" (a. Khabez KCR), "APTPPOM" LLC (a. Khabez), "Nedra-2004" LLC (a. Khabez).

It is worth noting that he himself Arashukov Raul also has a wealth of criminal experience and two convictions.
The first time Raul Arashukov was convicted in 1985 for fraud, the result of which was the theft of 4 tons of grain, and sentenced to 2 years imprisonment. The second time he was convicted in 1987 for misappropriation of forged documents 5 tons of sunflower and sentenced to 2.5 years of imprisonment in a penal colony. Both times, the judgment is given adyge-khablsky district People's Court of Karachaevo-Cherkessia AO Stavropol Territory.
And after all these criminal scandals Kirill Seleznev entrusted to oversee the "gas business", LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" in the southern regions of Russia, it was the clan Arashukovyh. The question of how much Raul Arashukov can "unfasten" Kirill Seleznev is still open.
As Seleznev and Arashukov "fleecing" Karachay-Cherkessia?
So far, thanks to the general director of LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" Kirill Seleznev, family Arashukovyh controls gas flows coming in Karachay-Cherkessia, manipulation of tariffs continues, and local residents suffer from extortion "gasman".
Population KCR indignant as "daughter" of "Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Pyatigorsk" in Karachay-Cherkessia, led by Ruslan Arashukov, literally "strangled" the inhabitants of KCR unreasonable demands payment for the consumed gas, which is calculated not only on the counter, but also according to the standards of consumption . In other words, the residents are forced to pay twice for the same gas.

Since the subscriber regularly pays on the counter, but it suddenly begin to come to additional accounts. After trying to figure out in Pyatigorsk "daughter" of "Gazprom" he explained, "a term verification counter expired, so the charge according to the standards of consumption." Moreover, that the subscriber has paid over the counter, it is still forced to pay the sum of the standards, 5-20 times higher than those calculated by the accounting unit.
The "gas company" never warn the subscriber about the expiration dates of verification counters. The subscriber also knows nothing about what the term verification to expire because the log counter removed network organizations JSC "Karachaevo-Cherkesskgaz" and stored there.
In other words, the heads of LLC "Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Pyatigorsk" created a "vicious circle", from which the local people can not escape and is now obliged to pay for gas.
As a result, "gasman" began to demand from local residents impossibly high amount. For example, a resident of the village of Kichi-Balyk Malokarachayevsky District Salis A. representatives subsidiary of "Gazprom" demanded in addition to the amount paid by the meter a little-a lot of 98 thousand rubles. There were cases when one of the family of the KCR demanded that representatives of the gas companies even 200 thousand.
Moreover, the "diligence Arashukova" was created, and the second scheme of illegal knock-money, which is due to the supposedly fixed "gasman" "fault" of the counter.
So from another resident Malokarachayevsky District Republican branch of LLC "Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Pyatigorsk" asked to pay 113 thousand rubles. The amount was calculated again according to the standards in connection with the alleged failure of the device. However, the subscriber receives a "chain letter", told local reporters that the "gas metering device is OK, the counter seal is not damaged, and the controller, who discovered his fault, was on the territory of homeownership in the absence of the owners."
It is obvious that the subordinates Ruslan Arashukova put fraud in a subsidiary of "Gazprom" to the stream. However, it still does not match his powerful uncle Raul Arashukovym, who is considered the founder of the introduction of "raspilnyh schemes" in the North Caucasus "daughter" of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz".
Obviously, "kickbacks" from all these "cuts" come headed OOO "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" Kirill Seleznev. It seems that the law enforcement bodies is high time to investigate the "dark dealings" Seleznev and Arashukovyh.
The corrupt leadership of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz"
But do not think that the LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" "the cuts" are engaged only adviser to the general director Raul Arashukov, but he Kirill Seleznev. As it turned out, this "daughter" of "Gazprom" built an entire system to direct cash flows from procurement in the "right direction".
The media have reported that tens of billions of rubles spent on the accounts of companies that belong to someone affiliated with Seleznev.
Rumor has it that at the conclusion of assets involved in the closest associate and deputy general director for corporate and property relations of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" Elena Mikhailova (she's a member of the Board of PJSC "Gazprom"; Head of the Department 105)

Elena Mikhailova, Deputy General Director of LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz"
It is believed that due Mikhailova part of "Gazprom" began to receive contracts LLC "Gazenergoservis", which is controlled by step-brother Kirill Seleznev Ivan Mironov.
By the way, the husband of Ms. Mikhailova is Mikhail Sirotkin. Previously, he was Head of the Department for Management of corporate expenses of OJSC "Gazprom", which is now called Department 121 PJSC "Gazprom" (until July 17, 2015 "Gazprom" OJSC was, and after that date became PJSC - Ed.)
The media reported that Mikhail Sirotkin is considered close to the deputy chairman of the monopoly Kirill Seleznev. Rumor has it that Sirotkin, too, did a lot to "cash flow" of LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" were concentrated in the hands of half-brother of the head of the company (ie Ivan Mironov).
On the Internet there is information that Sirotkin very active in a private plane flying from the highly paid top models on vacation in Nitsu, Tel Aviv, Milan, the Maldives and Courchevel. Formally beauty "accompany him during his business trips." In "Gazprom" there is talk that Kirill Seleznev also not averse to take advantage of the "elite beauties" services.
As Kirill Seleznev helps his brother to do business
It seems that the "bad example" Raul Arashukova, long turned LLC "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" into an instrument of his "crony business" was contagious. Anyway, seriously, Cyril, repeating "the way Arashukovyh" engaged to print structures in an offshore gas monopoly, which he controls through their friends and relatives.
This argument can be verified by analyzing the process of how the JSC "Gazprom gas distribution" (part of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz") in February 2014 sold a 12.27% stake in the bank "Russia" the two are not formally related to "Gazprom" structure - LLC " Overpast-Invest "and LLC" Oberon Estate ". However, if you know who is behind these offshore companies, the relationship of these structures with the head of "Gazprom mezhregiongaz" Kirill Seleznev becomes clear.
"A family"
We draw attention to the fact that 7,086% of JSC "Joint-Stock Bank" Russia "belongs to LLC" Overpast-Invest "(the owners - Tatiana Svitova and Ivan Mironov), and 5,396%" Russian "Bank owns OOO" Oberon Estate "(controlled by Ivan Mironov ) "Overpas-Invest" is a co-owner of the bank "Finservice" (19.75% of shares).
"Finservice" in 2006, bought "The Seventh Continent" and Sobinbank. Sobinbank "Gazenergoprombank" was acquired during the 2008 financial crisis, and in 2010 "Gazenergoprombank" was attached to the bank "Russia".

Again, pay attention to the fact that Ivan Mironov - a half-brother about Kirill Seleznev and Tatiana Svitova - is the daughter of Elena Svitova, former vice-president Gazenergoprombank, and co-owner of the company "Overpas-Invest", which bought shares of bank "Russia".
