   Konstantin Babkin, Dmitriy Udras and Yury Ryazanov, who in 2000 were fellow students of Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, had already had a few seized enterprises under their belts. A few years earlier they founded Sodruzhestvo cooperative  which later was renamed as Novoye Sodruzhestvo and then they had an eye on Moscow soap factory.  Being suppliers of the factory at first, soon they turned into its owners. Few years later they laid their hands on Empils paint factory  in Rostov-on-Don city. Then they tried to seize  Aviastar-SP aviation plant in Ulyanovsk city, but finally failed.

   In 2000  the trio seized Rostselmash plant. They made a complicated scheme and managed to withdraw all the asset so that the plant would virtually own only a signboard, while all the property would belong to  Rostselmash  LLC owned by  Babkin and his fellow businessmen.

  Owners of Novoye Sodruzhestvo   had managed  Rostselmash  for three years.  At that period the only improvement made  was installing  air-conditioners of foreign manifacture in  Niva  and  Don cars  and  widening   Niva's rear track  to the width of the front one. After that owners of the plant ran out of ideas. No  combine  model was put  into mass production.

  In 2004 Novoye Sodruzhestvo  seized  Soyuzagromash, the Russian Union of Manufacturers of Agricultural Machinery and Equipment. Konstantin Babkin became president of the union.

Babkin was rumoured to be in touch with Kremlin  officials close to Igor Sechin and to seek to become a federal official himself at that time. Immediately after Sechin had been appointed deputy prime-minister and industry supervisor he conducted a conference on agricultural machinery at the request of  Konstantin  Babkin. At the end of 2008 and in July 2009 prime-minister Vladimir Putin visited Rostselmash plant. Both times owners of the plant carefully prepared for his visit  beforehand.

Obviously, one needed a  powerful lobby to get  the prime-minister to a plant twice. So Babkin had insiders among the higher authority  people and got an easy access to Putin.

  In 2011  Konstantin Babkin  also joined the debate on  2013-2020 draft programme of agricultural development and regulation of the markets of agricultural products, raw materials and food   prepared by the RF Ministry of Agriculture. He said, ''The program is not  high-flying enough. What we are going to do and what are going to achieve is  not impressive at all." Babkin also  called Russia's intention to join  the WTO  a  disastrous one.
