2019: Arrest for corruption protection Technoserv

Detention

On July 10, 2019 Alexey Ivanov was delayed by law enforcement officers on suspicion of taking of a bribe (Article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), reported to TAdviser two sources. According to one of them, detention was preceded by seizure of documents in RPF and also at offices of his IT contractors - in the companies "Technoserv" and Redsis.

One of interlocutors of TAdviser says that detention happened before the declaration of the tender for development of a key information system of the Pension fund - [1] the single state information system of social security (SSISSS). Contract volume, according to him, could be about 1.5 billion rubles.

The Pension fund told TAdviser that necessary assistance is rendered investigating bodies. The fund operates normally.

Technoserv considers that carrying out investigative actions at offices of the company is connected with activity of a team of the former chairman of the board of the company Alexey Ananyev.

«
In our opinion, carrying out investigative actions at offices of Technoserv is caused by injurious management style of the former management. In the past it brought Technoserv to critical condition therefore it was necessary to discharge the owner from management, and law enforcement agencies make investigation. New management in every possible way cooperates with them for the purpose of establishing order and stabilization of a situation in the company, - told TAdviser in Technoserv

As the corruption scheme was arranged

According to the investigators, in 2017 the bank card of Promsvyazbank issued addressed to the employee of Technoserv Alexey Kopeykin was transferred to Alexey Ivanov. Monthly within nearly two years Technoserv transfered 200 thousand rubles to this card. In total, thus, 4.4 million rubles were paid.

Ivanov reported the investigation that from its party it were not bribes, and fraud as he did not render services to Technoserv for this money.

According to whose instruction money was transferred, officially it is not set, Kommersant specifies. The investigation, however, does not exclude that it was the ex-co-owner of "Promsvyazbank" Alexey Ananyev who was earlier heading Technoserv group and discharged of the management at the end of 2018.

Ananyev, according to a source of TAdviser, left Russia several months ago and lives in Austria.

Kopeykin's protection insists on his innocence as "he did not know what happens to his bank card".

The source of TAdviser believes what knew several people about the corruption scheme. Part of them, first of all, former employees of Technoserv, could be interested in its disclosure since they work in the competing companies now and competes to Technoserv in tenders of other state departments. But there are interested parties both in RPF, and in other departments, persons interested to strengthen influence on large financial flows around IT systems of fund, the source is sure.
