The Regional Construction Company won the tender for the reconstruction of the Sevastopol Belbek airport. Information published on the public procurement website. The company is associated with businessman Arkady Rotenberg.
A tender worth 1.198 billion rubles was announced on 28 September. Only two participants submitted applications – Regional Construction Company LLC (hereinafter referred to as “RSK”) and the public law “Military Construction Company”. Only the application of the first company was recognized as compliant with the federal law “On the contractual system in the field of procurement of goods, works, services to meet state and municipal needs” (44-FZ).
According to Kontur.Fokus, RSK LLC is registered in Moscow, the general director of the company is Boris Sakun, who is considered a business partner of Arkady Rotenberg. It is known that Sakun previously headed the company “Transstroymehanizatsiya”, which was part of the structure of the Rotenberg holding “Mostotrest”. Previously, RSK LLC was called Aerosity Vnukovo LLC and worked at the Moscow airports Vnukovo and Sheremetyevo, and now is engaged in a series of projects at the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk airport.
In February 2018, The Insider wrote that, according to the inhabitants of the Smolensk villages of Obukhovo and Gryada, Sakun, with the support of the administration and law enforcement agencies, was engaged in weaning plots from other hunting farms, seizing water bodies near the village of Klokovo, damaging someone else’s share land near Obukhovo, illegal logging and shooting wild forest animals. Residents note that periodically a police cordon appears in these places. They consider these lands to be a possible resting place for the country’s leadership.
The co-founder of “RSK” is the company “Transstroyinvest”, the management of which included Alexey Fomenko, partner of Arkady Rotenberg. As the “Project” found out, he built summer cottages Vladimir Putin and FSB director Alexander Bortnikov in Crimea and sponsored the campaign “Poplar is not afraid of sanctions”, as well as “Don’t tell my Iskander”.
Also, “RSK” is a contractor for the construction of treatment facilities for the Yuzhnye in Sevastopol WWTP. A large contract was given directly to the company without a tender, since previous tenders ended either with the disruption of construction and criminal cases, or, in the future, with the absence of those wishing to take part in the auction. The decision to transfer the contract directly cost the federal budget an additional 1.8 billion rubles – the company will receive 8.5 billion rubles against 6.7 billion announced in open tenders.
