In "Eurocement Group" companies is a massive reduction, and the owner of this company Filaret Galchev suspected of bribing Russian governors?
Galchev with the "Governor's cover"?Layoffs in Ulyanovsk
The crisis has hit Russian business. Donated and companies included in "Eurocement Group" Filaret Galchev. For example, "Ulyanovskcement" of the Ulyanovsk region from November 2015 to late January 2016 due to lower demand dismissed by agreement of the parties 236 employees.
In fact, over the past three months it has been laid off 31.5% of the staff. Besides, as it turned out, in 2015, "Ulyanovskcement" reduced production by 20.6% to 1.35 million tons of cement.
In cahoots with the governor?
Recall that in the Ulyanovsk region "Eurocement Group" Ltd. owns two cement plants. One is located in Novoulyanovsk, the second - in the village of cement plant Sengileyevsk area.
Interestingly, earlier the company "Eurocement Group" has received from the Government of the Ulyanovsk region a priority investor status and benefits to 350 million. Rubles.
Instead of working "Eurocement Group" in the same, for example, Sengiley cement plant began to significantly cut down wages. Workers complain they began to squeeze businesses by cutting salaries, penalizing and depriving premiums under various pretexts.

Sergey Morozov, the governor of the Ulyanovsk region
In Novoulyanovsk, which is the second cement plant, of about 900 jobs in the near future can only stay 450. The head of the Ulyanovsk region Sergey Morozov, according to the workers, ignoring the problems arising at the enterprises "Eurocement Group". Due to the fact that the company Morozov gave Filaret Galchev multimillion benefits, there is a version that the representatives of "Eurocement Group" bad "unfastened" head of the region.
Galchev "ferried" finance "clan Merkushin"?
Is it not better the situation in "Eurocement Group" in other regions. In December 2015 it was written that the holding plants "Eurocement Group" plan to cut 1000 people. For example, the chairman of the trade union committee "Mordovcement" Alexander Sergeyev said that the massive reduction of more than 600 people remain without work. "According to available information, rather than 1660 workers in the factory will be in 1026," - said Sergeyev.
Note that "Eurocement Group" bought the shares of the largest cement producer in the Volga region - "Mordovcement" (capacity of 6.8 million tons per year) December 12, 2014 (the date of completion of the transaction - Ed.), And before that a large block of shares " Mordovcement "belonged to Sergey and Alexander Merkushin - relatives of the governor of the Samara region Nikolai Merkoushkin (former head of Mordovia, handed over power to his successor in the region Vladimir Volkov).

Nikolai Merkushkin, the governor of the Samara region
Now the authorities of the Samara region and Mordovia do not pay attention to the complaints of the workers of enterprises, included in "Eurocement Group". Obviously, Galchev has long been "conspiring" with Merkushin, and the money for the sale of shares "Mordovcement" went straight to the governor's family.
Lobby in Tatarstan
In addition, journalists paid attention to communication Galchev in the supreme state power bodies of the Republic of Tatarstan. In this regard, wrote about how the government of the republic and "Eurocement Group" signed an agreement whereby the group was to get all large orders to ensure the construction of the Universiade venues, and social mortgage petrocomplex "TANECO" and increase the volume of supply to the Republic 20-25 %.
Other businessmen believed that the country is not necessary "to establish a monopoly on the supply of strategically important raw materials" and competitors "Eurocement" would apply to the FAS.
It seems that Galchev was able to find a common language with officials from Tatarstan, which confirms the version of "corruption component" in the structure "Eurocement Group" and Russian governors.
Energy scandals Galchev
It is worth noting that the owner "Eurocement Group" has always been "do not care" to the problems of the workers and the population. In those days, when Galchev was chairman of the Board of JSC "Rosuglesbyt", he threatened to "Krasnoyarskenergo" move to 100 percent advance payment for delivered coal that would jeopardize energy supply Krasnoyarsk.
In addition, the structure of Galchev earlier conflict with RAO "UES of Russia", which is why no energy left Krasnoyarsk GRES-2 and Berezovskaya GRES and "Altai Energo" and "Khakasenergo".

Filaret Galchev, the owner "Eurocement Group"
Still remember the scandal when killers in Moscow killed Deputy General Director of JSC "Rosuglesbyt" Ivan Kartasheva. Previously, it was written that Galchev was dissatisfied with the old management "Rosuglesbyt".
Another scandal involving Filaret Galchev happened in spring 2006. Fund Russia Partners and its partner, the investment company "A 1" (the structure of "Alfa Group"), reported on the lawsuit in the Moscow Arbitration Court against the "Eurocement Group".
The claim to the arbitration court of the first instance has been filed on behalf of the companies controlled by Russia Partners Kolden Holdings Ltd. and Serpell Holdings Ltd., which owns 44% shares of "Eurocement". The essence of the claim was that in 2004 "Eurocement Group" led from the three cement plants, the share of which belongs to the fund, according to the raw material quarries.
According to Russia Partners, the group began to sell plants at a higher cost raw materials and finished products already nearly market price guide "Eurocement" for sale to final consumers. As a result, in 2004 the income of "Eurocement" decreased by 68% compared with 2003. The claim amount (about 3.35 billion rubles.) accounted for over 75% of all profits earned by "Eurocement Group" in 2004. It seems that Galchev led cheated with their business partners, and now "clears" at their jobs.
Pikalevskaya saga
Also Filaret Galchev was involved in the incident that triggered mass protests in Pikalevo. Things reached the point that the problem of the workers had to deal with personally Vladimir Putin.
Before you venture in Pikalevo, stopped, and workers staged a massive protest, the plant "Pikalevo cement" (included in "Eurocement Group"), two-thirds of providing the needs of the developers of St. Petersburg and Leningrad region, reduced the release of cement three times (up to 800 thous. tonnes). After that, "Pikalevo cement" was faced with the prospect of complete closure, and the workers of this factory have publicly expressed their dissatisfaction.

Oleg Deripaska, the owner of "Basic Element"
It is also known that Filaret Galchev through structures "Eurocement Group" tried to stop "BaselCement", controlled by Oleg Deripaska, to close at modernizing Pikalevo Alumina Plant (EGS).
Forced to resign
War Deripaska Galchev and ended with the company "Eurocement Group" has officially announced the dismissal of 60% of employees at the factory "Pikalevo cement" Boksitogorsky Leningrad region. It is about 700 people.
This often operating companies Galchev forcibly 'thrown out into the street. " Earlier Belgorod regional prosecutor's office received a complaint of employees of JSC "Oskolcement" included in "Eurocement Group", forcing them on to the dismissal of their own volition. It seems that business "Eurocement Group" is destroyed, and suffer from the ordinary workers.
The quarrels with business partners
In recent years, business "Eurocement Group" is experiencing enormous problems. It is obvious that without the loans Sberbank Filaret Galchev Holding would have long waited financial collapse. At the same time with business partners in Galchev relations have long been spoiled.
It reminded corporate war holding "Eurocement Group" with the minority shareholders of the subsidiary JSC "Eurocement", which ended only after Filaret Galchev bought 44% shares from Millhouse Capital.
This share of the company of Roman Abramovich has received from the Fund Russian Partners, who could not agree with Galchev even using the "Alfa Group".
"Connecting" Kadyrov
Still remember the conflict between Galchev and his former partner George Krasnyansky because of the money that he owed Galchev. In this regard, we wrote that the company GLK Investment Ltd George Krasnyanskaya filed a lawsuit against "Eurocement AG" (parent structure "Eurocement Group" holding company) in the amount of $ 200 million. Krasnyansky sold to partner its 23.8% holding for $ 1 billion in November 2009 ., but the money for their shares was not immediately.

Ramzan Kadyrov, head of Chechnya
As a result, the company GLK Investments Limited Mr. Krasnyansky Mr. Galchev sold the debt (the total amount of US $ 600 million), a businessman Pavel Krotov structures, which is the financial advisor to the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. It is believed that after the Chechen leader of the "pressed" on Galchev, he finally paid off with their debts. All this shows that Galchev just do not know how to deal with their partners, forcing them to go to "extreme measures."
Now these "extreme measures" will have to work the enterprises included in "Eurocement Group". After the mass protests of workers of factories, business Filaret Galchev may finally collapse.
