IR: FSB of the Russian Federation supervised illegal business activities of Sergey Kurchenko in the LDNR

According to the IR group, Sergey Vitalievich Kurchenko (born September 21, 1985, now resides on the territory of the Russian Federation) and the structures under his control act as a key intermediary between the Russian government and the majority of economic entities in the territory of the LDNR.

The property of Kurchenko is LLC "Company" Gas Alliance "(Nizhny Novgorod, Russia), which is the only entity to which the government of the Russian Federation is charged with supplying raw materials, equipment and equipment to the branches of CJSC Vneshtorgservis (Tskhinvali, the Republic of South Ossetia). Since 01.03.2017, this company carries out "external management" of the captured Ukrainian enterprises and sells their products outside the LDNR.


The following enterprises are in LDNR under the management of CJSC Vneshtorgservis at the moment:

CJSC Donetskstal - Metallurgical Plant;

CJSC Enakievo Metallurgical Plant;

Makeevka branch of CJSC Enakievo Metallurgical Plant;

PJSC "Komsomolsk ore management";

CJSC Krasnodonugol LCC DTEK Rovenkyantratsit;

LCC DTEK Sverdlovskantratsit;

In order to effectively carry out his business activities on the territory of the LDNR, Kurchenko actively maintains contacts with representatives of the Russian government (Dmitriy Kozak) and members of the interdepartmental commission for humanitarian assistance to the affected areas of the southeastern districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine (Sergey Nazarov , Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation). The volumes of financial needs of subjects of economic activity in the occupied territory of Donbas by the Russian Federation, the order of their interaction, the organization of supplies and logistics, the formation of price indicators for raw materials and finished products of enterprises, etc. are determined through them.

According to the "scheme" of Kurchenko, LLC "Company" Gas Alliance" "turns" Ukrainian coal into Russian and delivers it to Russian and foreign consumers. For example, only one such contract with the Polish company "Dolomit-oil Sp.z.o." from September to the end of this year will be delivered 10 thousand tons of Ukrainian anthracite brand ACO. According to other contracts, supplies of Ukrainian anthracite of AM brand by sea (through the ports of the Sea of ​​Azov) to Romania through the logistics of the Azov Sea ports - delivery of anthracite of AC and ACO brands to Turkey (logistic services on the territory of the Russian Federation are provided by the joint stock company RZhD Logistics).

Kurchenko could not carry out his active business activities in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine without influential patrons in Moscow. According to the IR group, his supervisors are representatives of the leadership of the FSB RF. He addressed to them when he understood that the former "head of the LNR" Plotnitskiy "taxed" the goods produced by the enterprises of CJSC Vneshtorgservis, which were exported without customs clearance from the territory of the LNR. The share of Plotnitskiy’s profit from the sale of goods Kurchenko was up to 50% of the cost. The complexity of the situation was that Plotnitskiy himself had a "roof" - the General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate RF Armed Forces, which allowed him to successfully manage of the local business.

The clash between the interests of Kurchenko and Plotnitskiy (in fact between FSB and the General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate RF Armed Forces) led to the famous conflict between the "head of the LNR" Plotnitskiy and the head of the "Ministry of Internal Affairs of LNR" Kornet. In order to change the situation and limit the financial ambitions of Plotnitskiy, Kurchenko appealed to his curators from the FSB of the Russian Federation, who instructed the supervised head of the MIA LNR I Kornet to find out the real situation and the role of Plotnitskiy in the smuggled flow of goods from the LNR territory. Team of Cornet was started collecting data, including the use of available contacts in the "Prosecutor's Office of the LNR", through which Plotnitskiy exerted pressure on businessmen.

Such actions did not go unnoticed by Plotnitskiy and prompted him to take measures to discredit and dismiss Kornet from his post. This issue was agreed with Moscow, in particular with the General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate RF Armed Forces, and there was no surprise in that.

The situational victory was won by the FSB RF together with Kurchenko in the confrontation between the two security structures, and he successfully continues his business in the occupied Donbas at the moment.
