Vneshtorgservice: an empire in the midst of an unrecognized republic

22
Today, there are practically no large enterprises under the jurisdiction of the governments of the LC and the DPR. Since 2017, Vneshtorgservice CJSC has finally reigned in the republics, which has adopted industrial giants as “external management”. The structure, which is directly connected with the runaway Ukrainian oligarch Sergey Kurchenko, crushed all the tidbits in the republics, and, if it is possible to re-launch a company, immediately crushes it. Next is the Lutugin mill roll mill, which re-established work in 2018.




Unfortunately, Vneshtorgservis is not interested in either the Stakhanov Ferroalloy Plant, which is very expensive to transport raw materials from Russia, nor the very necessary LDNR Stakhanov Wagon Works, which is now producing garbage containers, nor the Yuzovsky Metallurgical Plant, which started Zakharchenko with fanfare (the company worked from February to November 2018 year).

But it is of interest to the same Khartsyzsk steel-wire rope plant “Silur”, which has potential (operates at about 50% capacity), and other surviving industrial enterprises that are gradually restoring activity.

Today, VTS actually controls the entire metallurgy of LDNR: the Donetsk, Makeevsky and Enakievsky metallurgical plants, the Alchevsk metallurgical plant and the Khartsyzsk pipe plant. The entire chemical industry necessary for metallurgy: Makeevsky, Enakievsky and Yasinovatsky coke plants. It controls the mining enterprise necessary for the industry - the Dokuchaev Flux-Dolomite Plant.

Metallurgical industry under the control of CJSC Vneshtorgservis is provided by rich mines in Krasnodon, Sverdlovsk, Rovenki and Komsomolsk, which are taken under control. Extracted coal is enough for metallurgy and for export.

The gradually expanding empire does not officially own enterprises. They are in external control. Nevertheless, the profit received at the expense of the giants of the metallurgical industry is not transferred to the budget of the republic. At least this was the case with the previous government: from 2017, the “VTS” was exempted from paying taxes. Since then, no news that the situation has changed has been reported. It is only known that the structure pledged to annually allocate the government Pushilin "extra" 150 million rubles "for culture." In addition to what, it is not known, but about the taxation of the "VTS", I repeat, to this day, not a word has been said.

Moreover, judging by the reports of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, there is something to share. Metallurgy alone brought VTS in 2018 more than 102 billion rubles, and in 2019 should bring more than 117 billion rubles. To this considerable sum it is necessary to add profit from the export of coal and products of the Khartsyzsk Pipe Plant (before the war he worked for Russia and Kazakhstan and sold more than 3 billion rubles worth of products annually).

Where these profits go is a secret. What margin from them "Vneshtorgservis" pays DNR - the secret. Who and how controls the work of the VTS is a secret. Nothing but numerous speculations on this subject is not to be found. It is semi-officially considered that the profits are laundered through Ossetia and then returned to LDNR as salaries and pensions. Unofficially, there are a wide variety of rumors going up to the point that the Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov still owns the best LDNR enterprises, and he gets the lion's share of the profits.

In this whole situation, there is one remarkable moment: gradually, a certain number of recent functionaries are being formed inside and outside the republics, who have been ousted from power or simply have not received it. They form a conditional opposition and actively take out the dirty linen in public, sharing with the public the reliable information known to them, multiplied by rumors invented to fight the current leadership of the republics. As a result, more and more information appears in the press and amateur groups, thanks to which the “secret materials” of the LDNR become well known.

So, for example, today it is not a secret for anyone that, before 2017, the LDNR actively sent products of enterprises, coal, and so on, up to communal payments, to Ukraine. It is quite likely, considering how actively certain forces are publishing “compromising material” against Sergey Kurchenko and “VTS” lately, that shocking revelations about the life of the internal Vneshtorgservis empire will soon appear. It is quite possible that the revelations will not be too pleasant and will hit the government, the republics themselves, and the “curators”. As it already happened with the Ministry of Revenue and Fees administered by Tashkent (nickname).

It would be logical to at least partially abandon the policy of total secrecy and start at least a little to explain to the population of the republics and sympathetic citizens in Russia, where 100 billion are spent per year (only from metallurgy), who are tracking how and in what way the BTS the managers did not set their salaries for 800 thousand rubles per month (as was the case with Tashkent and comrades).

Because the form of the republic seems to be like the people, and according to the content inside LDNR there is a completely hermetic empire, in which they secretly control the best that is in the industry of Novorossia, and at the same time the profit derived from this best.

    Oh, these "structures". And where do the taxes go? Yes, and of course these "managers" are getting drunk. By and large, they have nothing behind their souls except high patrons. They often have no knowledge or conscience. If only people who worked in these industries and received experience and appropriate education were in charge ... Alas, dreams ..

        "... so that on the same" VTS "managers do not assign themselves salaries of 800 thousand rubles a month (as was the case with Tashkent and its comrades)."

        They are taking an example from our officials. And on salaries too (Sechins, Millers, etc.) ..

      It does not depend on individual people. It depends on the relationship system. What is LDN? The name seems to be the People’s Republic, but in essence? But in essence all the same bourgeois entities. In which the power of the ruling class — the bourgeoisie and for the good of the bourgeoisie — is exercised.
      If the people in LDNR compelled their governments to nationalize all large, profitable enterprises, then the Russian and Ukrainian bourgeoisie would slaughter these enterprises by refusing to cooperate with them. Unlike ordinary people, the bourgeois are very solidarity with each other, despite the competition and other disagreements.
      LDNR is not the USSR; there it is impossible to build a just society. Therefore, they are doomed to live under the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, and even in conditions of smoldering military conflict.

    In fact, such an economic scheme duplicates the Russian one. Apparently for this the "Russian spring" was stifled. In general, in post-Maidan Ukraine, in the LPR and in Russia, there is a scheme for the withdrawal of incomes belonging to the people to some of their own people. And so, in propaganda and on television, there is a frenzied defamation of each other with mutual reproaches.

    Honestly, the author is already sorry. He is all trying to seek the truth.
    Currently, the economy of the LDNR under the leadership of Kurchenko has acquired the form that was originally planned for it by the Donetsk clan, only instead of the "Donetsk" clans it rules and stuffs the pockets of Kurchenko and his "curators".
    It was for this that the LDNR was "created". Some just conceived, and others use the ideas.
    Therefore, the author's refrain "It would be logical to at least partially abandon the policy of total secrecy and begin to explain at least a little to the population of the republics and sympathetic citizens in Russia " looks like an oxymoron, especially taking into account the damage caused by propaganda, forming in the "population" and "sympathizers" an idea of ​​the LDNR that is far from reality.

      That is why other territories in the framework of the former regions do not fight back. Because they are not needed. The necessary assets are there. Again, a complete analogy with Russia, which does not want any real associations in the post-Soviet space.

    Conspirology is not my science. Just keep silent. Sometimes it’s useful to become a fool than to rake then for the ability to read between the lines. IMHO.

      Not quite so, the showdown of Donetsk and other Ukrainian oligarchs, only then the Russians intervened. And also about what the people's revolution can turn into if the bourgeoisie actively intervenes.

    It is quite possible that this is so. Only in order to start production it is necessary to initially invest in it. And here a number of questions arise that also need to be answered. In the context of the "untouchable and non-negotiable" Minsk agreements, who from Russia was interested in this risky "piece", who and what invested, who offered markets for the finished product? Yes, no one wanted to risk it, so they get out themselves. Who needs additional charges and sanctions, but no one. Although there are as many of these sanctions as a hedgehog has needles!

    And I just want to say "Thank you" to Egor for revealing for us the situation around and within the Republics. Let this truth be impartial, bitter, let it cause powerless anger, but only through such articles do you begin to understand that he is not the main enemy outside - he is inside us and his name is businessmen / capitalists / nouveau riche of all stripes who parasitize on the most sincere feelings and aspirations of the people, completely destroying any achievements of the masses. I am more and more convinced that the Bolsheviks, having chosen the path of great terror, were not mistaken - only in this way and in no other way was it possible to knock out these "birthmarks of capitalism" from the body of the country and the state, but only it turned out that they were prone to relapse.

      What "truth" does Yegor reveal? In the previous article about "Water of Donbass", to put it mildly, the reality corresponds to 10 percent. Here again -
      Nothing but numerous speculations on this subject

        What I just said intersects with a fairly large number of opinions that I have heard from people in one way or another connected with the Donbass. The now deceased Mozgovoy and Dremov spoke about the same situation in their video messages. In the words of a famous TV personality: "Coincidence? I don't think so." However, I always take constructive positions and if you, Alex, have facts that refute these materials, you are welcome to demonstrate them to the general public - you can even within the framework of a response article. If your argumentation is more convincing, I readily admit that I was mistaken about the economic basis of the people's republics and in fact the factories and mineral resources there belong to people, and not to a handful of businessmen broadcasting the will of either the Kremlin curators or the former Ukrainian nobles. and maybe both of them combined.

            Well, call me, I'm not on purpose))) In general, you must admit that there is no smoke without fire, and rumors do not appear from scratch. And this is quite natural: even before it was one of the richest regions of Ukraine, now it lives off humanitarian aid - this, you know, raises many questions on both sides of the border. Of course, it’s clear that the war, of course it’s clear that there are risks and an unfavorable investment climate, but the factories work, although not on a former scale, which means that someone consumes their products and pays for it somehow. And the fact that everything related to the revenue and expenditure side of the budget in the Republics is a secret shrouded in darkness and creates the basis for such rumors. And for us, ordinary citizens only have to do how to patiently put these gossip into one basket, hoping by adding to reveal at least an approximate trend.

              Of course, there is no smoke without fire, but reading publications under high-profile headlines, I want to see facts and not copyright speculation, which, moreover, most people far from Donbass perceive at face value. And so, quoting the author
              In this whole situation, there is one remarkable point: gradually a certain number of recent functionaries are being formed inside and outside the republics, driven out of power or simply not received. They form a conditional opposition and actively take dirty linen out of the hut, sharing with the public reliable information known to them, multiplied by rumors invented to fight the current leadership of the republics.

    Privatization of profits and nationalization of losses is standard practice in the Russian Federation / Ukraine.
    It’s just more obvious here. The social network was shoved to Ukraine / Russia, the profits were privatized. Saddled leverage and flows and all is well. Every passionate romantics nailed. Made icons and forward. Towards a brighter future.
    I don’t even know what to offer in such a situation when Ukraine seems to be profitable (the area with problems of the Russian Federation will be shoved)
    RF-as a lever for gas negotiations in Ukraine
    Ordil itself as a means of enriching specific people.
    So that everyone benefits from the status quo ...
