Roman Trotsenko, Advisor to the president of state-owned company Rosneft
Former president of United Shipbuilding Corporation (OSK) Roman Trotsenko was cornered by investigators
Former president of United Shipbuilding Corporation (OSK) Roman Trotsenko was cornered by investigators.
Roman Trotsenko has extensive criminal experience, including some time spent in a detention facility in the 90s. Usually, when police forces show up on his doorstep, Trotsenko goes on a binge, then plays hide and seek, and just before the inevitable long term imprisonment he pulls out his money stash and solves the problem. We shall see whether this method will work this time as well.
When in October 2009 Roman Trotsenko was appointed president of OSK, a number of media published articles praising the new management of the corporation.
ASZ received more than 5 billion rubles from the state, and when the money began to arrive, Trotsenko decided to start the bankruptcy procedure.
Trotsenko decided to deal with the ASZ debts, and he did it in a very peculiar manner. On 17 December 2009OSK president signed a contract with ASZ to change the borrower in the agreements between Sberbank and ASZfrom the shipyard to OSK. Simply put, the corporation has assumed all the debts of the shipyard before the federal bank and the shipyard now owed the money to OSK. This was done without holding a Board meeting, just by means of an arbitrary decision made by Trotsenko.
It should be noted that after this relations between Trotsenko and Sberbank grew closer. In particular, the bank became the lender for other commercial projects by Trotsenko, such as building Federation tower in the center of Moscow City.
Once the money came to the shipyard, Trotsenko signed an order to return them to the accounts of OSK, under the pretext that the funds could be misused. Investigators will now determine what use Trotsenko found for the money. As for the distressed shipyard, instead of bringing in some real money the turnaround manager proposed to increase share capital by 1.9 billion rubles, which is still in process.
In 2011, the government decided that the next year it would provide ASZ with 3.2 billion rubles. Trotsenko immediately began preparations for receiving this tasty morsel. As law enforcement authorities later discovered, he gave a written order to JSC St. Petersburg Naval Machinery Bureau "Malachite" (part of OSK) to file a case .... against ASZ and thus initiate bankruptcy procedures. Fact is, in 2004 the shipyard owed the bureau 16 million rubles and the parties settled the matter peacefully. Trotsenko instructed the daughter company make the other daughter company bankrupt. This literally is a case of the deliberate bankruptcy, which falls under the correspondent article 196 of the Criminal Code.
The shipyard, however, knew nothing of such plans of the parent company. The management began to ask permission to pay the bureau. However, ASZ Board of Directors, which consisted entirely of people appointed by Trotsenko, including Ilya Novoselskiy, simply forbidden to repay the debt to Malachite.
But Trotsenko followed the same routine he used in 2009 for the 1.9 billion rubles. The shipyard saw no money. By the decision of the Board of Directors (that is, that of Trotsenko) the same amount of money was to be attracted through additional ASZ share issue, to be completed by 31 January 2012. Then the issue was suspended, then once again resumed, with a new date - 23 November 2012, etc. All these decisions were made by the Board of Directors, fully staffed by Trotsenko's people, and the amount of budget funds that thus could be used for other purposes already exceeded 5 billion (a sum of 1.9 billion and 3.2 billion).
It is not surprising that after the work of Trotsenko's anti-crisis team (since 2009) unallocated loss of ASZexceeded 14 billion rubles.
As a result, Khabarovsk Krai prosecutors turned to invesrigate the situation and requested all documents concerning the period 2009-2012, primarily those signed by Trotsenko.
This is not the first criminal case for Trotsenko. Telling about all of them would take too long, there is way too many. Let's just see one example, when Roman Trotsenko even had to spend a month in a Moscow detention facility.
In 1994, at the age of 24, he established Platinum Bank in which he served as the Board chairman. A large-scale advertising campaign was launched immediately; the whole city was littered with posters with huge buffalo, the symbol of the bank. Now and then the media would publish positive articles about a young talented banker Roman Viktorovich Trotsenko.
No wonder that after Platinum defaulted on its first loan, Trotsenko first stopped coming to the office, and then avoided returning home.
In 1996 it was the time for Trotsenko to hide from the investigators. In February and March of 1996,Platinum Bank took short-term loans worth 2 billion rubles in Intellekt-bank and Alta-bank. Negotiations about the money were led by Trotsenko who, as it turned out later, presented a fictitious balance sheet of his bank, overvalued by 8 billion rubles. When soon (and it was soon since these were short-term loans) it was time to return the 2 billion rubles, the banks were offered illiquid assets instead of the money. For example, Platinum yacht, moored somewhere in Finland. Representatives of the two banks refused, after which they never found Trotsenko again.
Moreover, Platinum Bank even moved out of its office. In fact, the bank changed offices quite regularly. Then the bankers appealed to Moscow department for combating economic crime and economic crime fighters at the Interior Ministry. The agencies quickly found out that there was a scam and initiated a criminal case under Article 147 of the RSFSR Criminal Code, for fraud. Trotsenko resigned from the post of chairman ofPlatinum Bank (but remained a co-owner), set off on the run and was declared wanted. Operational-Search department was engaged in the search to catch the young banker. Its staff found that on 31 October Trotsenko would be at 34-a Zemlyanoi Val. An ambush there helped catch Roman Trotsenko. He was handcuffed and taken to a detention facility at the 29th police department.
122 Criminal Code, 31 October 1996 Roman Viktorovich Trotsenko
No debts to the creditor banks were ever repaid; moreover, as early as next year after the arrest, Trotsenko used the money to buy Passenger Port and South river port.
Here is a brief summary of the activities of the young banker in Platinum Bank: the bank defaulted on loans to 23 banks amounting to over 35 billion rubles, and also participated in the theft scam of 20 billion rubles fromTatenergo. Before staging bankruptcy Platinum Bank used the proceeds collected from the scams for the purchase of Voskhod bank.. Bank Voskhod was soon renamed into Project Financing Bank. By the way, the banks belonged to Trotsenko and were involved in a significant number of criminal cases. But that's a whole other story.
OSK ex-president loses the best men
Roman Trotsenko fails to save the law firm Sameta - tax and legal advice from investigation
Mordovich and Gromyko are long-term business partners of OSK ex-president, Roman Trotsenko, who recently became primary suspect in the Investigative Committee investigation and who habitually refers to himself as the right-hand of Igor Sechin.
For over ten years they have been working with Federal Tax Service and arbitration courts to ensure they make decisions in the best interests of Trotsenko.
Another business partner of Roman Trotsenko is Vladimir Antonov, a Lithuanian banker who is hiding from law enforcement in London and prefers to give interviews toUkrayinska Pravda, the internet voice of the self-styled Kiev authorities.
Among the new clients was Roman Trotsenko, adviser to Igor Sechin, a friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Roman Trotsenko met leaders of Sameta back in 2000.
By this time Roman Trotsenko already owned Moscow inland navigation division and actively developed his business. His usual manner was hostile takeovers, including bribery of top managers in the camp of competitors. In NPK Dmitry Gromyko was the bribed top manager who was supposed to help Trotsenko get certain assets of the entity. Gromyko arranged another helper for Trotsenko, his friend Yuri Tufanov who in 1998 to 2007 served as the company's Deputy General Director.
However, Trotsenko failed to gain control over Northern Shipyard.

Roman Trotsenko, Advisor to the president of state-owned company Rosneft
It is known that 90% in Potok will be brought into the ownership of Roman Trotsenko, another business partner of the notorious real estate developer. Following an old habit of his, Trotsenko refrains from making any comments.
A failed spy
During the perestroika, this resourceful young man while being a student of the Institute of Asian and African Studies at Moscow State University was actively selling computers and cigarettes. Later Trotsenko mentioned that he did this because "times change". At first he was preparing to serve at the well-known First Main Directorate of KGB as the Institute was a traditional source of new personnel for USSR special services. This is where all the rumours about his connections among power ministries employees stem from, regardless of how much Trotsenko denies he has any. In fact, without such connections his further achievements look highly improbable. For instance, the numerous shadow activities of the successful businessman did not lead to any consequences.
In late 1980s Trotsenko was sent to Kazakhstan for on-site training. Almost immediately he became financial director of the Asiya-TV network covering the whole republic. Yet, there are two versions as to the date of this appointment. According to one, Trotsenko got the position not later than in 1987, the other claims at least 1990. It is a fact that the network was established in 1989-90. Up until 1990 it had no broadcasting niche.
Looks like Trotsenko managed to get a position in a non-existing company. Moreover, it is a well-known fact that in 1987-89 Trotsenko went for training to the USA and Portugal. Does this make the second version right? Not at all. It is also a fact that in 1989 Trotsenko became chairman of the board of trustees at the international bank Al Baraka Kazakhstan, having left his previous position. It is not clear why he would want to keep a year and a half of his life out of sight, but the so-to-say missing years match the period of his serving at the bank, directly after which in 1991 Trotsenko became a co-founder and financial director of an international medical exchange. Is it just a coincidence that Trotsenko suddenly had the money to make such a bold move? His further business activities rather prompt that it was no coincidence.
Trotsenko's guide to loaning money
After a little while of being part of the newly born Russian exchange market of the early 1990s that emerged literally out of the blue, Trotsenko founded a company with an unpretentious name Financy i kredit that was engaged in activities within the popular business sphere of the time. Trotsenko prefers to keep this part of his biography away from the public eye as well. Part of the reason for this is that in 1993 while he was heading the company he was a witness in three criminal cases over theft with the help of forged payment advice notes.
Finally, in 1994 he was appointed charman of the board of trustees in the newly established Platinum-bank. Methods he employed become clear if you look at a story that unfolded in 1996.
That year Platinum-bank took out loans from Intellekt-bank and Alta-bank amounting to 2 billion dollars. It is easy to guess that it was Trotsenko who mediated for the loan. He presented his fellow bankers a balance sheet report of Platinum-bank for February and March 1996 where he overstate the final figures by 8 billion rubles. The loan issued by the two banks never made it to the Platinum-bank. Both Trotsenko and the money stayed in Moscow.
However, the victimized bank was in no rush to uncover Trotsenko's activities. On the contrary, all his colleagues took his side. According to the new board of trustees chairman, Roman Trotsenko was a decent man and all that happened was just dirty tricks of the loan givers to whom Platimun-bank defaulted on the loan obligations. Later when Trotsenko was reminded of this story once in a while, he only showed a bit of annoyance and kept silent. According to him, the hired managers set him up, and mass media "distorted the whole thing as usual". This is how the banker paid back to his former colleagues for the good they did for him.
Nevertheless, in October 1996 Trotsenko was arrested and put behind bars up until the end of investigative proceedings. It is peculiar that his naive colleagues would bring him warm clothes and food. Leftenant Yuri Stenin was even awarded a badge and was promoted for having arrested Trotsenko. Meanwhile, the hunter and his prey were getting along and became friends.
Elegant scam with a disturbing finale
The bank that Trotsenko had been managing soon went bankrupt and its money vanished. Trotsenko was released since the loaners dropped their claims to the no longer existing Platinum-bank. Yet, it was not over for the businessman. Intellekt and Alta turned a blind eye to this story quite easily, but the main loan provider of Platinum-bank, Novy Moskovsky bank, lost 20 billion rubles because of the bankruptcy and was ready to wage war. NMB did understand who was behind the loan scams and targetted Trotsenko.
Meanwhile Roman Trotsenko found new grounds for shady business when he headed bank Voskhod, which just like Financy i kredit has never been officially recorded as part of Trotsenko's working places. Probably it is due to the fact that in late 1990s he was under investigation for alleged illegal transit of 200 million dollars abroad.
NMB decided to harm Trotsenko's plans and tried to interfere into acquisition of shares in Southern cargo port in Moscow he was aiming to carry out. The bank was anxious because Trotsenko claimed he could not return the money due to lack of financial capacity. But he did have the money to buy the shares, thought the bankers, thus he should have the capacity all right.
Novy Moskovsky bank failed to take into account that Trotsenko had long had relevant protection His buddy Yuri Stenin made an agreement with Sergey Ivanov, a friend of his who worked at the anti-corruption 6th department of Regional Administration for combating organized crime, and on 9 January 1998 the department employees along with SOBR special police conducted a raid search at the NMB office allegedly connected to the bank employees being involved in theft of loan money, initially formed by NMB funds, Tatenergo.
Immidiately after that NMB preferred to drop any demands it had for Trotsenko to respond to.
In acknowledgement of this favour, Trotsenko hired Strelets private security agency owned by Stenin to help him rid of smaller rivals at the cargo port.
A little later special police conducted searches at Strelets and Trotsenko broke off his ties with Stenin.
Roman Trotsenko had a surprisingly well-regulated skill to leave people behind.
Soon restructuring of the port, which Trotsenko bought on the money he "loaned" from the banks, drew attention of the Federal Transport Service and Trotsenko became head of Moscow inland navigation division. In 2001, with full consent of the authorities, he bought out all shares of the division and his position grew to be more than well-established. Starting at that moment Trotsenko's business empire started to expand at high speed.
He emerged at the real estate development market, as well as at real estate retail one and that of construction materials manufacturing. A number of companies was working for him in this sphere. Some of them were established by Trotsenko, others bought out like concrete goods plant ZHBI no. 6. His manner of doing business was considered aggressive. At that time it meant that the businessman resorted to dirty tricks as well. He even had a raider team of his own, for tasks that needed careful implementation.
Still, when he needed to do something really big, Trotsenko preferred to join forces with other front line businessmen. The most notorious major raider take over was that of Research Institute for elastomers in 2004.
Trotsenko chose an experienced accomplice, Vladimir Palikhata.
It was getting really dangerous and Trotsenko, following an old habit of his, ridded of the raider team to brake off any connections.
Ad astra
In 2007 Trotsenko united all of his companies into AEON group with a joint turnover of 1.2 billion dollars. AEON includes Russia-Holland company Timmerman Yachts manufacturing yachts of premium class. Trotsenko loved yachting since he was a child and when he fulfilled his most ambitios plans in this area, in 2009 he was invited by Igor Sechin to head state building holding company OSK (United Shi
