Rossiyskaya Gazeta, 19.09.2000


Sergei Chemezov did not manage to be an "effective manager", but the first year of his presence in the arms business was marked by a grandiose scandal. Rosvooruzhenie, a competitor to "Promeksport", prepared a contract for the delivery to Colombia Mi-17 helicopters. But at the last moment, when everything was agreed with the buyer, messengers of Chemezov appeared in Bogota, offering the same helicopters cheaper. After that, all the Colombians refused the deal: information about this came to the Russian media.

Our task - is to have a minimum number, in order to receive our representation in the board of directors.

According to the words of Sergey Chemezov, management bias looked like a full-scale troop campaign using operational and even combat capabilities of the Russian special service (FSS and the Interior Ministry), and the General Prosecutor's Office.

Soon, the three chief accountants of AvtoVAZ were charged on embezzlement and tax evasion (a few weeks later the charges were dropped).

They appeared to be neighbors not by an accident, the land under the village and houses, which are home to the generals, belong to Eroschenko S.V. It becomes clear, why these leaders instead of responding on the chaos in the expenditure of budgetary funds are engaging in mopping up persons, unwanted to governor and those who dare to "blather something."

All have heard (and the governor actively replicates these rumors) that the all-powerful head of "Russian Technologies" - Sergey Victorovich Chemezov, is in his patrons, and his right hand Maschitsky Vitaly Lvovich., 24.09.2014


The eldest son of Sergei Chemezov, Stanislav, lives near the new Olympic Village, but he beats records not in sports, but in business - dozens of different companies a connected with him, most of which work in the same areas of the economy that Rostec of his father: "Light helicopters ", "Morspetstehnika", "Systems and technology" and so on.

Nothing personal - even a business is not always only personal. So, the Gelendzhik resort complex "Meridian" Stanislav also bought on shares with Dmitry Artyakov (the son of Vladimir Artyakov [Stanislav Chemezov also friends with his brother Yuri Vladimirovich Artyakov]) and Maya Bolotova (the daughter of the head of "Transneft" Nikolay Tokarev).

Some firms earn on state contracts, such as "Interbiznesgrupp". Through the "Real Standard" this company owns an independent insurance group, which is engaged, inter alia, in the insurance of military enterprises. And military enterprises - is the sphere of responsibility of his father exactly.

Some earn on a state participation. The same "Interbiznesgrupp" has a CJSC "StandartTsement", among the co-founders of which - is CJSC "Investbud" - the "daughter" of "Oboronprom" and "granddaughter" of Rosoboronexport, Council of which is headed by Chemezov-elder.

So Stanislav Chemezov is not a freeloader, he -is a partner. However, some companies, associated with him, receive state funds exactly for free. For example, his companions at OJSC "Rosatom" (Rosaviaspetskomplekt) took an advance of 7.7 million from a chemical plant in Bryansk (included in Rostec) for the supply of parts, but the contract was never fulfilled. Because Rostec, as a sin, just did not give an approval for the transaction, as it is required by law with large amounts. Two years passed, before the court ordered the business friends of Chemezov Jr. to return the money to the plant, which is in the responsibility of his father. What is this if not a long-term and an interest-free loan?

Ruspres, 08/01/2015


The question, if Sergei Chemezov manages to expand their empire at the present or not, is controversial. You may recall that the project of creation of another state-owned airline, lobbied by him not so long ago, was unable to "get off the ground and fly." And in the space industry the estimated flight conditions are times more difficult "- sums up the analyst.

No wonder that many call "Rostec" Russia's largest operator of "recycling of high-tech industries." "Under the hood of "Rostec" are cornered nearly 700 enterprises and organizations, located in 60 regions of the country. Developers and manufacturers of aircraft engines are included in the "Rostec" structure, as well as the manufacturers of aviation materials and aircraft equipment. The crown of Sergei Chemezov lacks only "nameplates" from the producers of aircraft,"- wrote the "Federal Investigation Agency ". Soon, apparently, there will be not only nameplates, but the fairings for launch vehicles.

Scandals, 01/04/2015


There is a popular expression that "money does not smell." It seems that a way to obtain funds really does not matter for the head of state corporation "Rostec" Sergei Chemezov. As they say, if only finances were. So Sergei Chemezov decided to learn a new giant cash flow in the form of budget billions, allocated for the garbage disposal.

Of course, the garbage area is not the profile of "Rostec", but, it seems that the greed of Chemezov knows no bounds. So only in 2012, the recycling also entered the area of responsibility of "Rostec", as under this business in February of the same year was created the subsidiary of the State Corporation "National Environmental statement" (OJSC NEO), which creates the technology and infrastructure for waste disposal .

In other words, though "Rostec" was "broken off" from the federal status of the operator, but it was allowed still allowed to the "trough" in the form of federal programs. In essence, it was the second goal tantamount of Chemezov for amendments - and not less important than the federal operator status.

By the way, due to the adoption of the amendments and the emergence of new lines in the corresponding receipts for utility bills, the prices on the utilities in Russia may rise to 15%. This was confirmed by a co-chairman of the Russian Consumers' Union Anatoly Golov. The cost of utility bills, by the way, has already jumped. For example, only in Moscow tariffs for housing and communal services has increased by 10%.

It turns out that after the adoption of "amendments of Chemezov" the ordinary Russians began to pay more for utilities, and the head of "Rostec" "sucked" to the next government program.

"Loans to ..."), will be able to return to a credit institution, is directly depends if the reorganization will be profitable for his family.

Formally, "Rostec" had 25.1% from "Russpetsstal". Another 24.9% received Eduard Shifrin, and the remaining 50% divided Cypriot Vriefway Lacoveta Management and Briefway Trading.

Managing Director of "Troika" Sergey Skvortsov (now works as deputy director of the "Rostec") told "Vedomosti" that the investment company owned shares of "Russpetsstal" in the interests of "Rostec".
