Order "For Services to the Fatherland" IV degree (2006)

He is married and has two sons.




Yusufov the elder is a hereditary functionary: his father was the chairman of the Council of Ministers of Dagestan. Igor Khanukovich himself has gone from a simple engineer in the prospective Mosenergo system to the Russian Energy Minister. In his work biography were also the posts of deputy chairman of the Committee for the Protection of Economic Interests of the Russian Federation and Deputy Minister of Industry of the Russian Federation, leading posts in Rosvooruzheniye. But, perhaps, the most profitable place was for Igor Yusufov Rosrezerv.

At one time, the State Duma's anti-corruption commission released data on multibillion theft of state funds from the Rosrezerva during Yusufov's reign. For example, the management of the agency replenished the reserve base mainly on paper, giving out money to "their" companies. The supply was also supplied to enterprises, which, having borrowed tons of metals - nickel, bronze, pig iron - food - grain, flour - and other reserves, soon successfully went bankrupt.

As soon as the inspection of Rosrezerv gained momentum, Yusufov left the agency, and in 2001 he went on to raise in the Ministry of Energy. The history with the embezzlement of state property was hushed up, despite the fact that 35 criminal cases were instituted on the audit results., 09/07/2010


Business biography of the Dagestan authority and the participant of the top rating "Gays in the elite of Russia" Igor Yusufov began with a criminal barter. Yusufov specialized in the exchange of rare earth metals for baby food, and then included weapons in the scheme. In the future projects supervised by Yusufov, it was not all usual either: the state reserve sold the property at understated prices, the contractors of the Ministry of Defense issued equipment for the new equipment written off and thrown to the dump.

RUSPRES, December 14, 2016


According to media reports, back in the early 1990s Yusufov began to cooperate with the Renaissance Foundation of Social Development of Russia, whose leaders were at various times the chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR Boris Yeltsin and the country's vice-president Alexander Rutskoi.

In 1991-1992 Yusufov served as deputy chairman of the Committee for the Protection of Economic Interests of the Russian Federation established by Rutskoi and his assistant Alexander Sterligov under the President of the RSFSR, headed by Nikolai Ermakov, a "chekist, translator from the German".

Time of news, 06/18/2001


In 1998, Yusufov took the post of first deputy chairman of Sergei Novikov, later became acting chairman of the State Committee of the Russian Federation for State Reserves. In December 1998, he was appointed chairman of the committee, and in May 1999 his post was named general director of the Russian Agency for State Reserves. The department headed by Yusufov was called one of the "key mechanisms for the influence of the federal government on the regions and the most important source of resources beyond the control of the Duma." In particular, using barter deals, it was engaged in providing regions with fuel in the winter-northern and spring-sowing seasons, so Yusufov's name was well known to many officials, almost all governors and large companies. In the media, he was mentioned as a man of Mikhail Kasyanov, who in 1999-2000 held the post of Minister of Finance of Russia.

New Izvestia, 10.03.2004


In 2001, Yusufov was appointed Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation. As head of the department, he was elected chairman of the boards of directors of Rosneft and Transnefteprodukt (TNP). In 2003, he was elected to the board of directors of OAO Gazprom.

The position of the head of the Ministry of Energy Yusufov left in the spring of 2004 after the resignation of Kasyanov's cabinet and the liquidation of the ministry itself in connection with the government reform.

Vedomosti, February 25, 2004


In April 2009, Yusufov was supposed to be promoted to the post of General Secretary of the Forum of Gas Exporting Countries (GECF). However, he refused the post, explaining that "the purpose of the organization for him is not quite clear." In June of the same year, high-ranking Russian diplomats called Yusufov "the most optimal candidate" for the successor of the Russian ambassador to Ukraine Viktor Chernomyrdin. However, Mikhail Zurabov was appointed Russian ambassador to Ukraine.

Kommersant, June 22, 2009


On April 8, 2011, Dmitry Medvedev sent Yusufov to retire. The presidential press secretary, Natalia Timakova, said that Yusufov's resignation was due to the abolition of the respective post. However, the media pointed to the likely link between his dismissal and the acquisition by his son Vitali of almost 20% of the Bank of Moscow shares from the hiding banker Andrei Borodin in the UK.

RBC, 04/08/2011


In November 2011, ex-President of the Bank of Moscow Andrei Borodin said in an interview that Yusufov had told him directly that he was acting in the interests and on behalf of President Dmitry Medvedev, who made a decision to get the state control of the Bank of Moscow. According to Borodin, Yusupov said: "I buy your package of the Bank of Moscow cheap, but you do not have a choice, because otherwise you will lose everything, and in a couple of years we'll sell this VTB package, and divide the profit between me, Medvedev and Kostin." "He always expressed himself quite straightforward," Borodin said, "we are creating for the" young man ", as he called President Medvedev, a" pension fund "or" a future financial empire. " Exactly with such expressions he spoke.

Vedomosti, 11/21/2011


Hiding in London, the former head of the Bank of Moscow, Andrei Borodin, on Skype, talked about exactly how the deal was going to sell his stake in the bank and who gave it a political go-ahead.

"Have you already applied for political asylum in England?" How do you assess your chances of getting it?

[Yusufov - approx. - I'm not ready to comment on this right now. I would not like to talk about my plans for status. But if you analyze everything that happened to the Bank of Moscow from September last year, it is clear that behind this whole story there was a political decision - to take the bank under control. And this decision was implemented by VTB Andrei Kostin and Igor Yusufov, close to the top. Yusufov told me directly that he acts in the interests and on behalf of President Dmitry Medvedev, who took the decision to get the state control of the Bank of Moscow. This is a politically motivated decision to take away property, and the West is very negative about those who make these decisions.


- But Yusufov could have just a good relationship with high-ranking officials. Not necessarily personally with the president?

[Yusufov - approx. - The new Mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, also confirmed that Yusufov is authorized to negotiate the purchase of this stake. Sobyanin said that at the level of the country's top political leadership, it was decided that VTB Bank would buy a package of the city and that I was recommended to sell my stake, and Yusufov was authorized to buy these shares from me.

And I realized that once a higher political decision was taken on the city's package, then in my package Yusufov was taken at the highest level. What is the highest political level in Russia: it's Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev. According to my information, Putin in the history of the Bank of Moscow did not play an active role, which means that another person played it. So I had enough evidence that Yusufov also represents Medvedev. All my sources, which I trusted, confirmed to me that Yusufov was not an imposter.

At the beginning of our communication last September, Yusufov was very cautious when he wanted to tell me something important, we always left his office with him. The bank had a large room like an opera hall, and we walked and talked about this "opera hall". And then from the end of December Yusufov became less cautious and began to call different names. He always expressed himself quite straightforwardly: "We are creating a" pension fund "or" future financial empire "for the" young man ", as he called President Medvedev. Exactly with such expressions he spoke. "

After the accident on August 17, 2009, the accident at the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydropower plant, the Rostekhnadzor commission revealed a number of reasons for what happened and in October 2009 announced the list of persons whose actions contributed to the accident. Among them was Yusufov, who, when he was the head of the Ministry of Energy, "did not create ... mechanisms for real state control and supervision over the safe operation of energy facilities."

On April 8, 2011, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev sent Yusufov to retire. The presidential press secretary, Natalia Timakova, said that Yusufov's resignation was due to the abolition of the respective post. However, the press pointed to the likely link between his dismissal and the acquisition by his son Vitali of almost twenty percent of Bank of Moscow shares from the hiding banker Andrei Borodin in the UK.

Senior son Vitaly, a graduate of the Moscow State Institute of International Economic Relations and International Business, was mentioned in the media as the director of the Moscow branch of Nord Stream AG, operator of the Nord Stream project. He left this post after in 2009 he purchased two bankrupt shipyards of the ship-building holding Wadan Yards from the German authorities of the federal state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The deal amounted to 40.5 million euros. It was reported that Vitali bought it with his father, but later Vitaly was mentioned as the owner of the company Nordic Yards, created specifically for this transaction; It was noted that he concluded it as the executive director of the firm Gevor IV AG. Analysts noted that, despite the fact that the buyer purchased the shipyard as a private person, the deal was supported "at the highest level." It was reported that this kind of support "was necessary because there had previously been a negative experience of cooperation with Russian investors" (the previous owner, a Russian, Andrei Burlakov, was arrested in December 2009 on charges of fraud in an especially large amount.) On the security of the shipyard Vitaly Yusufov in April 2011 Year and acquired a fifth of the shares of the Bank of Moscow.

The media also wrote about Yusufov's youngest son Maxim: in the years when he was a child, Yusufov the elder called the upbringing of his son his favorite hobby. According to data for 2010, Maxim Yusufov studied at the Moscow School of Economics., 2011

Shortly before the attack in the restaurant "Khutorok" Anna Etkin testified in the court of New York against the former representative of President Igor Yusufov

The shooting in the capital's restaurant "Khutorok" businessman Andrei Burlakov and former deputy head of Mira Bank Anna Etkina may be related to the investigation in the US of the case of a scam involving assets of the German shipbuilding company Wadan Yards. One of the defendants of this case is the former Minister of Energy of Russia Igor Yusufov, the representative of Etkin Vladislav Tkachenko told Izvestia. According to him, the killer shot Burlakov and seriously injured Etkin after she gave evidence in the US court against Yusufov.

... - Etkin is a key witness in this case - she gave evidence in court in the US against Igor Yusufov and returned to Moscow. After that, the killer shot at her, "a lawyer told Izvestiya.

Izvestia, May 25, 2012


The daughter of the murdered Anastasia Burlakova asserts that the people involved in the assassination have a large financial resource and can influence the investigation. As the customer of the murder in the statement, the former special envoy of the president on energy cooperation Igor Yusufov is called.

"From the story of my father and Etkina Anna (his civil wife), I presume that this murder was ordered by the former special envoy of the president on energy cooperation issues, citizen Yusufov Igor Khanukovich," the statement said. [...]

According to Anastasia Burlakova, a colleague Burlakova Malyutin, a former investigator of the Moscow City Police Department of Moscow Polikurova (convicted of bribery), investigator of the Criminal Code under the MVD for the Central Federal District Budilo, may also be involved in the crime. Employees of UBEP, through the institution of criminal proceedings and arrests, secured the seizure of Wadan Yards assets, the plaintiff believes.

- Burlakov and Etkin said that these law enforcement officers were given a bribe of € 3-4 million, "Burlakova said. According to her, the money was paid for the initiation of a criminal case against her father and his subsequent arrest. - Kru's inset]

Izvestia.Ru, 05.10.2011


But Yusufov really was really scared only when Burlakov declared that he was ready to make public in the media and submit it to law enforcement agencies (namely, investigator Nikolai Budilo, known to the general public as a figurant of the Magnitsky List, who was investigating the criminal case against Burlakov at that time ) All the materials at his disposal regarding the fraudulent actions of Yusufov, namely: a statement about the initiation of a criminal case against Yusufov in Germany on the fact of forgery of documents, information concealment and Deliberate bankruptcy, the materials of the Luxembourg financial investigation proceedings on the origins of several hundred million euros from the civil servant, who was Yusufov, the materials of the criminal case in Norway and Holland on the fact of deliberate bankruptcy. Yusufov realized that not only could he lose the shipyards of Wadan Yards, but the whole transaction for the acquisition of shares in the Bank of Moscow, where shipyards served as collateral, could be declared invalid. Then Yusufov turned to Nail Malyutin, the general director of OAO "FLC", with a demand to resolve the issue with Burlakov through his physical elimination. Malyutin, this turn of events was extremely beneficial, since with the removal of Burlakov, he could write off to him all the thefts committed by Malyutin himself at OAO FLC in the amount of 12 billion rubles, revealed during the bankruptcy of the company. Through a police officer, Aleksandr Andreev, who carries out operational support of the criminal case against Burlakov, Malyutin collected information about all the movements of Burlakov, his connections, places of residence and overnight stays. This fact was confirmed by the lawyer Burlakov, Mikhail Khallilulin. He said that the day before the murder of Burlakov, Andreev told him about the video shooting of Burlakov by him and his people in the restaurant "Khutorok", where subsequently the murder of Andrei Burlakov occurred. The very murder of Burlakova was planned and carried out by the Ossetian criminal authority Valery Gagiev. Gagiev is a long-standing partner and Malyutina Yusufov business, doing criminal provision of services for them. In his possession were a few killerskih teams working in Moscow. Gagiev worked at JSC "FLK" on a false passport in the name Morozov Sergey. September 29, 2011 Mr. Andrey Burlakov was killed in Moscow, at the restaurant "The farm". An hour after the murder of Igor Yusuf and Andrei Kostin, media reported on the purchase of the bank "VTB" shares of "Bank of Moscow", owned by Vitaly Yusufov. The amount of the transaction is stored in the strictest confidence., 2012


"As far as I know, Denis Voronenkov engaged in that for the money offered to lobby this or other issues in the State Duma. In particular, he always boasted of his familiarity with the former State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov and businessmen offered for a fee to lobby their interests, "- begins his appeal on YouTube Anna Atkin, a former deputy president of the World Bank.

In 2011, she suffered an attack: in "The farm" Moscow restaurant the killer shot her and her former partner Andrey Burlakov, who died from his injuries, and Etkin miraculously survived. While the two were on the high-profile case of theft in the "Financial Leasing Company" (FLK). According to investigators, the money stolen from the Financial Leasing Company, has been spent on the acquisition of German shipyards Wadan Yards. Etkin pleaded not guilty and insisted that for the theft were other persons, and the shipyards Wadan Yards allegedly purchased including money of the former Special Representative of the President of Russia Igor Yusufov.

According to Atkin, Denis Voronenkova she met at one of the meetings, where in addition to Burlakov Anatoliy Tkachuk attended representing security adviser Igor Yusufov.

State University Higher School of Economics Ivan Rodionov, Professor, expert of the "Company", believes that the risk of starting the privatization is clearly higher than the potential profits. "The complexity of the privatization of large companies is the confrontation between the two centers of power - the president's and prime minister's. - he said. - Some representatives of the second center would like to include these companies in its sphere of influence. But this desire is not at the presidential center. Firstly, it is not clear how it will affect the national interest, for compliance with which is responsible guarantor of the constitution, and secondly, the uncertainty that the new center will be able to force these companies to operate more efficiently after privatization than it is now. "

"Prime Minister's Center" specifies Kagarlitskiy: report IGSO "unnecessary privatization: disarmament before the crisis," stating that the Deputy Prime Minister Dvorkovich "actively participated in the creation of a" personal "Medvedev businessmen pool." Among them are called Suleiman Kerimov, Ahmed Bilalov, Igor Yusuf and Michael Abizov. "As a result of the new privatization plan is a reflection of the growing influence Dvorkovich in certain business circles," notes "Co", referring to the report's authors. The weight of this pool should not be underestimated: the experts say about the concentration in the hands of the aforementioned "new liberals" total capital amounting to some $ 50 billion.

... Meanwhile, the brother Yusufov Gennady through the fund "Revival" became a stockbroker. The Fund paid the two seats on the Stock Exchange "Conversion", which acts as an intermediary between the Russian military-industrial complex, and Western firms. Through the stock exchange, for example, the military turns me on rare-earth metals in the baby food. prosecutor's check followed in 1993, accused several officials that the purchase of food for the Moscow region of the budget for the Swiss bank accounts took $ 14.5 million, and the products have been bought only $ 1.7 million. But this and other investigations no We ended.

Fur coats for tanks

In the early 1990s, IBEC supervised including arms trafficking. Annual trade turnover exceeded $ 1 billion - a huge money in those days. However, as says a former government adviser on Defense and Security Viktor Samoilov, general, many buyers of the country were calculated for the supply of arms for the most part of the barter. China has supplied to Russian coats and cheap cameras, Malaysia - palm oil. In 1993 Samoilov proposed to Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin to create a company-monopolist "Rosvooruzhenie". And he became its CEO. To implement the barter of goods and works with exotic currencies such as the Indian rupee "Rosvooruzhenie" established a subsidiary company "Rosvooruzhenie Trading" (PBT). It was then that Samoilov and remembered Yusufova, whom I had known on the Committee on protection of economic interests of Russia, and invited the former Deputy Director of the Foreign Economic Relations in.

Yussufov oversaw the conclusion of contracts for barter goods, logistics, customs clearance, foreign exchange calculations. For three years the cumulative turnover of PBT reached $ 4 billion. According Yusufov commission of 2-3%. However, one of the former managers of "Rosvoruzhenie" says that on the orders of the Deputy Minister of Finance Andrei Vavilov PBT commission payments could exceed 30%. Vavilov asked Forbes said that "does not remember it." Anyway, PBT profit for the three years amounted to hundreds of millions of dollars. Who got the money?

With the support of shareholders Yusufov PBT almost immediately began to foreign trade organizations "Prodintorg", "Raznoimport", "Novoeksport". There was a package and at the very Yusufov. The share of "Rosvoruzhenie" according Samoilova, dropped to 20%.

According to Yusufov, the "Rosvoruzhenie" remained a controlling stake of 51%, and he himself "was not even half of the remaining 49%." And that was enough to over three years Yussufov could put together in a huge PBT for the time invested in dozens or even hundreds of millions of dollars. "All shareholders are well earned", - he being modest.

... The older son, Vitali, who was then a student at MGIMO, Minister Yousuf often led to the meeting in the Ministry, and represented it in the gas and oil companies. And in 2004, 25-year-old began his career at Yussufov "Gazexport" assistant general director Aleksandra Medvedeva. It was he who recommended the young officer in Nord Stream, the company for the construction of the gas pipeline "Nord Stream". In 2006, Yusuf became the youngest head of the Moscow branch of the company.

Vitaly Yusufov often in Nord Stream's offices in Switzerland and Germany, where he met with the head of the company, the former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and the then Minister of Economy of Germany Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. In the area of ​​Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania, where the final point of the pipeline and the very yard, he made the acquaintance of local politicians. Therefore, when in August 2009 in Sochi Vitaly Yusufov Summit announced "effective and successful investor," it was for the Germans nechuzhim man. Medvedev's spokeswoman recalled that the name Yusufov named president of the German side.

Murder shipbuilder

In April 2008, an acquaintance Igor Yusufov, an employee of the Foreign Intelligence Aleksey Korotaev went into his office in the Old Square, where a former minister from 2004 worked as the president's special representative for international energy cooperation. Korotaev brought with him Andrey Burlakov, Deputy Director of the State Financial Leasing Company (FLC's). The firm did not too successfully engaged in aircraft leasing and has created more and shipbuilding group based on the purchased Petrozavodsk "Avangard" plant. Shortly before the visit to Yusufova Burlakov learned from one of the employees of the group, former manager of Swedish shipping company that the Norwegian company Aker Yards is selling part of its assets, including the German shipyard. He decided to find financing and to buy back the assets for themselves. PricewaterhouseCoopers has estimated there were € 50 million to € 250 million. At Burlakov.

Yussufov listened with great interest to visitors. "The idea seemed sound and the state", - he says. After all, according to his version, they talked about buying the German shipyards of FLC, not Burlakov. Yussufov flew to Germany, got acquainted on the spot with the shipbuilding business, and agreed with the Swiss bank Credit Suisse for a loan of € 200 million. The main owner of the shipyards became Luxembourg company FLC West. It is 75% owned by offshore company from the British Virgin Islands Templestowe, 25% is considered Yussufov, had FLK. Who was behind Templestowe?

In June 2008, senior Yusuf went to Oslo to get acquainted with the management of the parent company. In July Templestowe transferred the first payment by € 80 million, and on the same day in Wikborg Rein law firm shining Burlakov signed purchase documents.

... In the autumn of 2008 came the global financial crisis. Shipyard at that time owed to suppliers, public utilities, workers. Banks do not lend to the company, the company introduced the external management, and then declared bankruptcy. In the end, Wadan Yards were under the control of the municipalities of the German authorities. Vitaly Yusufov became the official owner of the shipyards, paying about € 40 million. He claims to have won the competition in the shipyard, as agreed to save 1,200 jobs, as well as back € 374 million of loans from German banks.

In the autumn of 2009, when Yusuf Jr. already took over shipyards, Burlakov and his Vice-President of Finance in Wadan Yards Atkin concluded in Butyrka. They were charged with designing a circuit for the withdrawal of FLC in the controlled company money. As it turned out, only 1% belonged to FLC West state leasing company, while the remaining 25% - Burlakov. In spring 2010, both released on bail, but in September 2011 in a Moscow cafe they shot the hired killer. Burlakov died Etkin long treated for severe injuries. The criminal case of murder and attempted Burlakov Atkin was stalled, but its criminal investigators were preparing to transfer to the court. She disappeared in Israel. In the case of the murder of the father and son were Yusufova witnesses. Conduct investigations Investigation Committee concluded that the motive was not connected with the activities of Wadan Yards. Tom Eynertsen, a former top manager of Wadan Yards, told investigators on the case Burlakov, except that he was the owner of the company and Igor Yusufov, who "presided over [in a number of meetings] as the primary owner."

Bank of Moscow Defense

In mid-September 2010 Yusuf senior on the phone offered to meet Andrey Borodin, President and co-owner of Bank of Moscow. The call was not surprised by Borodin, after he met with Yusufov a few years before, when the official was interested in whether the bank to sell assets. According to Borodin Yusuf he insisted that Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov was about to withdraw, and the bank will sell. He was ready to become a "mediator and the buyer of private shareholders packages." The largest private shareholders were very Borodin and deputy chairman of the board of directors of the bank Leo Alaluev. Directly they owned about 20%, still about 6.4% had two companies, the beneficiaries of which were considered Borodin and Alaluev. Numerous physical persons owned approximately 3%. Borodin nothing was going to sell, and the conversation did not happen.

Borodin said that pressure was exerted on him and VTB, "Persuasion and affection gave way to threats." And from the very beginning of the negotiations they participated Igor Yusufov. According to the most Yusufov, when it became known that the VTB will first buy only urban package, he came to the bank chairman Andrei Kostin, whom he knew since the 1990s, and "advised his son to friendly shareholders for the purchase of the minority package." According to Borodin Yusuf tried to convince him that he was acting in the interest of President Medvedev, Kostin and his own. "I did not do anything in the interests of Medvedev - now says Yusuf older. - I just helped Vitaly. " Medvedev's press secretary did not consider it possible to comment on the reasoning of man, who is suspected of embezzlement of funds in the Bank of Moscow.

... As a result of Borodin doge. "The bank was already practically not mine" - he sighs. According to him, Yusuf Jr. joined the negotiations in February 2011. He bought out Alalueva Borodin and the loan of the Bank of Moscow. Formally, the credit was issued on bail Nordic Yards shares of this company, "Kuzbassrazrezuglja" and other securities. The day before the transfer of the city of Moscow to VTB Bank Package, February 21, 2010, was approved by the credit shipyards at $ 1.13 billion. Money Yussufov received March 10 and soon completed a deal with Borodin. He Alaluev received for their shares of $ 800 million twenty-fifth day of March 2010, the Borodin flew to London, where he is still, -. He was in Britain for political asylum.

By July 2011, VTB agreed to consolidate more than 75% stake in Bank of Moscow to get 295 billion rubles for its reorganization from the Deposit Insurance Agency. He sold his shares and Vitaly Yusuf. How much he has earned in the transaction? Kostin said that "no one [of the minority shareholders sold their packages VTB] to these actions not make any money." VTB and Yusuf transaction amount is not known. Borodin, referring to the knowledgeable person admits that mediation Yusufova earned $ 300 million.

In 2012, Putin returned to the presidency and Medvedev became prime minister. By the end of the year Serdyukov was dismissed from the scandal. In February, the 2013th new Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu wrote a letter to Putin that "Basis" does not require frequencies and the Ministry of Defense would not object if they will be exposed to competition. Roskomnadzor officials have slowed down the issuance of Yusufov Jr. laid approvals.

... "Base" has filed a lawsuit and won a court of arbitration in August 2013 after concluding a settlement agreement Roskomnadzor. During this time, the company held a tender for the purchase of several thousand base stations and networking equipment, and began to build a network in 40 cities and in Moscow. Under the terms of the license network to be launched across the country in 2014. By the end of September 2013th we were ready to launch the network in eight cities in October - twenty. "It will be possible to include the switch, and it will work," - says Yusuf. Connect subscribers should begin before the end of 2013. According Yusufov, "Aykominvest" has already invested in the creation of a network of 6 billion rubles (Ministry of Defense does not bear the cost), and the end of the year, the amount of investment will reach 11 billion rubles. Yussufov says that "Basis" completely covers the presence of the city, setting in the small 60 base stations in larger - more than 100 million people and - even more. It saves on the fact that almost does not build its own fiber-optic networks, and existing leases. What are the risks?

In the spring of 2011, the Moscow Kubinka cut circles minibus with passengers at the highest level. It drove President Medvedev, Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov and Minister of Communications Igor Shchegolev, apart from them in the cabin was Vitaly Yusuf. They all watched a video conference on the big screen, divided into four parts: the operators of "Voentelekom" from four different points of reports to the President and the ministers on progress in the mobile network of the fourth generation of tests (LTE) of "Basis Telecom". "Voentelekom" it owned about 25%, and the rest - the company Yusufov "Aykominvest".

... However, in addition to the lack of voice and highly competitive business Yusufov exposed to greater risk. "[Yusufova] know exactly who bewitched, - says one of the participants of the market - but the person may lose their positions."

Former Minister Igor Yusufov, whose son is suspected of stealing a multibillion-dollar offers to help sell 19.5% of "Rosneft" Igor Sechin and his associates.

Mr. Yusufov, owner of "Energy", offers through buyback (repurchase of own shares), followed up by management and the staff of the options on these shares as a long-term incentive and motivation system!

The rest, in the hope of himself Yusuf suggests taking on a stock exchange, as well as a supplement to attract major foreign investors. Again financier alludes to himself. It should be noted that Yussufov Sechin, a good friend and he worked in "Rosneft" from 2002 to 2004 as Chairman of the Board of Directors of OJSC "Rosneft".

We have a son-Yusuf Khanukovich Vitali, who was also very fond of state-owned companies, but "strange love". Recall that this year it became known that Rosmorrechflot (Federal Agency of Sea and River Transport) requires a USC 667 million rubles for the not-built icebreaker. The culprit is the failure of Nordic Yards Vitaly Yusufov, who got rid of this year from the company!!!

The fact that Rosmorrechflot insists on the penalty for the failure of the timing of delivery of the icebreaker LK-25 "Viktor Chernomyrdin," according to the law 44-FZ on the federal contract system. After the ship was supposed to be ready in 2015. Rosmorrechflot paid 7.94 billion rubles.

But third parties are the incoming USC OOO "Baltic Plant - Shipbuilding" (BZS) and FSUE "Rosmorport". But, it turned out, problems arose from the refusal of the German Nordic Yards shipyard from building superstructures for LK-25.

And it turns out, "Sechin" details. Nordic Yards belonged until 2016 Vitaly Yusufov, who got rid of her, so as not to pay the penalty!

In August 2015, the USC due to the difference in exchange rates gave CPB construction of what was to save 1 billion rubles. June 16 USC president Alexey Rakhmanov said that the LK-25 will be delivered in late 2017 - early 2018, the project went up to 1.5 billion rubles. It is unclear what the money and who will pay the penalty.

In late 2015, CPB demanded by the International Commercial Arbitration Court (ICAC) to recover from the Nordic Yards 1 million rubles. CPB also requested to oblige the shipyard submit reporting documentation on the work performed by the add-LK-25, which was not done!

In the absence of confirmation of work performed may be a requirement for the return of funds received by Nordic Yards as an advance. Shortly thereafter Yussufov quickly got rid of the German company.

Note that Yussufov in 2011 hit the scandal connected with the assassination attempt on the former owner of the German shipyards Wadan Yards Andrey Burlakov and his civil wife - the ex-deputy chairman of the "World Bank" and Anna Atkin. Burlakov was killed and Etkin received a broken jaw, bruised sternum and severe psychological trauma.

It is important to emphasize, a month before the murder of businessman Andrei Burlakov tried to open a criminal case against the son of board member Igor Yusufov.

It turns out that former and current officials and managers of state companies, taking advantage of the situation and the influence of cashing in on public assets. Now, "Sechin" and "Yusufova" do not just want to "remove scum" from the proceeds of state companies, and themselves become the masters., 03.11.2016

Fund "Energy" Igor Yusufov looks refining assets 3-5 million tons per year capacity. The fund participated in three tenders for refinery purchase in Europe - Kareton (United Kingdom), CRES (Switzerland) and Ingolstadt (Germany), but to no avail, said a businessman "Interfax": in all three tenders fund passed all the qualification stages, fulfilled all the requirements and came the final - but always lost. Yussufov ready to buy or build a refinery in Russia. "Here you are the director of the refinery, you put the oil, and you are required to pay only 30 days. And then, when you sell oil products, spent 10% of their money on recycling, you get an advance payment. In fact, you have a financial point of view, it turns the bank refining. Good, quality plant, with the depth of processing, in good condition, so as not plundered, so that there was no tie-ins, and so on ", -. Yussufov explains. Businessman interested in any processing - in gas chemistry, petrochemistry, because these industries future. "We can not have a country that is part of the global production of three (along with Saudi Arabia and the United States), bought polyethylene and polypropylene, petrochemical products," - he said. Profitable or not profitable right now to own refineries - a controversial issue, says managing GL Asset Management Sergey Vakhrameev. It all depends on the region where the refinery is located, and the depth of treatment. For example, the marginality of refinery business in Central Europe and Russia is low, but it also fell in 2 times in Russia after tax maneuver and lower oil prices. Asset prices also decreased in 2 times. Promising region - Southeast Asia, there are margins of this business is high, but the depth of processing may be low, and the value of the assets is higher than in Europe, says the expert. Fund "Energy" has a 49% joint venture with "Novatek" - "YARGEO" which develops Yarudeyskiy field. Mining here is 3.5 million tons of oil per year. Also, the fund has about 20 licenses for oil and gas fields in the Yamalo-Nenets and Khanty-Mansiysk District, Yakutia and the Krasnoyarsk region, but industrial production they are not carried out. Foundation showed interest in the purchase of "Bashneft"., 03.09.2017
