Squad Creator Pavan Kumar N R: story of how a Indian teenager came up with an idea in his bedroom.

In a week that has seen the 19-year-old newly minted hit the headlines, he still sounds sparky. “I’ve got a lot of energy,” he says. “I don’t know why. The high point? “Seeing [the news on] the front pages of Times Now E-magazine,” he says. “Those kinds of things have been shocking, to put it mildly. When I started it two years ago, it was just a hobby.” And the low points? There haven’t been any, of course.

Pavan radiates positivity. “The proudest moment for me has been seeing these tweets coming through from teenagers saying, ‘You’ve inspired me,’ and I’m so excited about that.”

India-west staff reporter reported several days earlier. He has had about two hours’ sleep. Everyone wants to speak to him – who doesn’t love the fairy tale story of how an Indian teenager came up with an idea in his bedroom.
Pavan created a global, news-media based social networking website in Mangalore, he was at 19 of age. He is the star of this week’s global PR onslaught. It helps that he appears to have neither the introversion of your stereotypical computer nerd nor the megalomania of someone who was already being described as a “boy brilliant” long before this new deal.

He is polite, likable and self-aware, saying he knows he has to be careful that he doesn’t come across as precocious. “I try to maintain a level of humbleness to this,” he says.

INVESTTORGBANK PRESIDENT DETAINED IN MONACO. THE BANKER SUSPECTED OF 500-MILLION-RUBLE EMBEZZLEMENT IN RUSSIA

“Supposed criminal accused of large scale fraud is detained by law enforcement of the Principality of Monaco”, reported the main department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow on January 18. The press service did not mention the name or surname of the accused. Three hours later, RBC and Kommersant learned from their sources that the former Chairman of the Board of Investtorgbank, Vladimir Gudkov, had been detained in Monaco. Now, he is being extradited, and in Russia he faces a criminal case on charges of embezzling 500 million rubles. Russiangate tells what is known about this story.

What is this bank?

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, commercial banks began to emerge massively throughout Russia. Many of them were closed as swiftly as they opened. Investtorgbank appeared in 1994 and was specializing in servicing enterprises and organizations, small and medium-sized businesses, and issuing mortgages. In 2012, it took the 19th place in the rating of Rusipoteka (specialized publication – RG) on the volume of issued mortgage loans and the 2nd place in terms of the volume of repurchased loans.

By 2013, the bank had 21 branches and 80 additional offices in Russia. In May 2014, the financial and credit organization was ranked 51st among the 200 largest Russian banks according to the National Rating Agency (NRA – an independent organization analyzing the banking sector – RG).

Resolution and money laundering schemes

During the crisis in 2014, the bank had problems. In August 2015, the Central Bank introduced an interim administration in the financial and credit institution to “protect the interests of depositors and bank’s creditors”. At that time, the bank was the 56th in terms of assets and 72nd in terms of equity. Individuals had 55.9 billion rubles in the bank. In late September, the Central Bank decided to reorganize Investtorgbank. The Central Bank commissioned the resolution of the financial and credit organization to Transcapitalbank. The Deposit Insurance Agency (ASV) allocated 29.7 billion rubles for the resolution for a period of ten years, and another 19.5 billion rubles for maintenance of liquidity for a period of two years.

During the reorganization, it became clear that the bank’s management forged documents on profits and capital. This information simply was not consistent with the reality. The discrepancy between the facts and reports amounted to 32 billion rubles.

In addition, it turned out that 3.4 billion rubles were siphoned off through promissory notes through Rosinbank, the commercial bank of Kyrgyzstan, formerly known as Zelkar Bank. It also belonged to Vladimir Gudkov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Investtorgbank.

There were three schemes for withdrawing money. According to the first one, Russian residents bought bills, assigned the rights to them to Rosinvestbank via endorsement. Then, the bills were presented for payment.

The second scheme is simpler: the money was transferred from Investtorgbank to Rosinvestbank clients for the purchase of shares in companies in Kyrgyzstan. The companies never existed.

The third way to withdraw money is loans and advance payments to Kyrgyz companies, whose transaction passports were closed with a negative difference between the receipt of funds and expenses.

Courts, arrests, being in the wind

As of the beginning of 2016, the main shareholders of the bank were the Dutch company J.C. Flowers & Co (19.99%), Luxembourg Starr International (19.99%), ITB Holding (19.99%), Vladimir Udaltsov (16.04%) and Bank President Vladimir Gudkov (16.65%) .

In August 2016, the Moscow Commercial Court ordered to recover from Gudkov and Shurmin (Deputy Chairman of the Board of Investtorgbank) 3.6 billion rubles. The court decided that they acted unlawfully and knew that he incurred losses to the bank by acting this way. Even before the decision was delivered, Gudkov fled the country, but still tried to appeal to the decision of the commercial court through his lawyers. In vain.

After the fake accounts were found, the Investigative Committee instituted a criminal case on embezzlement against former owners of the bank on the fact of illegal withdrawal of funds. In October 2016, Investtorgbank’s office was searched by the law enforcement – operatives seized the relevant documents.

In February 2017, Gudkov’s stakes in ten companies, two plots of land and a house in the Vladimir Region were seized. He was also placed on the international wanted list. 11 months later, he was detained in the Principality of Monaco. According to the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Gudkov is charged with signing mortgage purchase agreements between the bank and another organization. The latter provided brokerage services for mortgage operations. By doing that, they withdrew 500 million rubles.

Now, the Russian security forces address the issue on the extradition of the former Chairman of the Board of Investtorgbank to Russia.

GOVORISH’ PO-RUSSKI? RUSSIAN OFFICIALS’ CHILDREN STUDYING IN THE UK

Russia became the world leader in the number of children who study in the UK. From 2005 to 2017, the amount of Russian students has increased by 77%, says consulting company Knight Frank. In 2016-2017, English private schools accepted 608 children from Russia. Russiangate remembers officials who paid for the education of their heirs in prestigious educational institutions of Great Britain.

Yekaterina Vinokurova

The daughter of Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov received a Master’s degree in the UK. Yekaterina Vinokurova graduated from the London School of Economics in 2006. And today the cost of a two-year MA program for an international student is £ 56,000 or 4.4 million rubles. It is one of the most prestigious London universities.

Vinokurova’s first education took place in America. At first, she studied at The Dwight School, one of Manhattan’s elite educational institutions, and then studied political science at Columbia University.

Anastasia Zheleznyak

The elder daughter of State Duma deputy Sergei Zheleznyak studied at the Queen Mary University of London. This is one of the largest universities in the UK: it even has its own campus in central London – with dormitories, restaurants and banks. From 2012 to 2014, Anastasia Zheleznyak studied international relations at the QMU. Three years of his daughter’s education cost the father 3.7 million rubles. The cost of one year of study on this program for foreign students is now £ 16,000.

Zheleznyak’s infusion into the English educational system was far from over. Since 2014, Anastasia started a Master’s program in King’s College London. There she received an MA in risk analysis in geography. The cost of studying on this program for foreign students is £ 19,000 or 1.5 million rubles a year.

Nikolai Remezkov

One of the sons of State Duma deputy Alexander Remezkov, Nikolai Remezkov, in 2008, was in the elite British private boarding school called Malvern College. In addition to the standard set of subjects, children at this school study Latin, religion, design, theatrical work and the art of debate. The cost of studies in Malvern College reaches £ 36,000 or 2.8 million rubles a year.

Nikolay Mizulin

Member of the Federation Council from the Omsk Region Yelena Mizulina also sent her son to study abroad. From 2002 to 2003, Nikolai Mizulin studied the humanities at Oxford University. This is the leader of the ratings of the most prestigious educational institutions of the world, and the education there is obviously not free. In order to spend a year in Oxford, one needs to stump up about £ 20 thousand or 1.6 million rubles. After studying in England, Mizulin did not want to return to his homeland – now he lives in Belgium and works as a partner in the American law firm Mayer Brown.

Alexey Golubev

The son of Governor of the Rostov Region Vasily Golubev received a Master’s degree in business administration at the University of Wolverhampton. To repeat the fate of the governor’s son today, one will have to pay £ 12 thousand or 1 million rubles to the university for one year of studying.

Yuri Belykh

Ex-governor of the Kirov Region Nikita Belykh is now being tried for taking bribes amounting to € 600 thousand. Even before the initiation of the case, he sent his eldest son Yuri to study at an English boarding school. About his intention, he reported on his LJ, calling it “a very difficult decision.”

Back then, Belykh did not specify the name of the school, but the amount spent on studying his son surfaced in court. This was told by Belykh’s friend – Alexey Pikhteev, who at one time managed the the ex-governor’s finances. He estimated that about 2.5 million rubles a year were spent for Yuri’s education in Great Britain. According to the anti-corruption declaration for 2015, Belykh earned about the same amount for the year – 2.1 million rubles.

WHERE RUSSIAN OFFICIALS AND OLIGARCHS SPENT NEW YEAR’S HOLIDAYS?

DMITRY PESKOV – GREECE

песков.jpg

On November 30, daughter of Russian Presidential Press Secretary, Yelizaveta Peskova, published a touching post on her Instagram about a boy who was injured by a maniac in Greece four years ago. Alleging that the Peskovs family demands justice, which has not been restored for three years for the unfortunate family, she suggested collecting money for them.

In the beginning of November, the yacht Matlese Falcon docked near Athens, where she celebrated the New Year. The yacht belongs to her father or his assistant Oleg Mitvol – often photos of Mitvol and the Peskov family have the same views, and, surprisingly, they coincide with the location of the yacht. The cost of renting a vessel is 26 million rubles a week.

Now the family, as well as the assistant to the presidential Press Secretary, is having fun in Dubai.

VLADIMIR POTANIN – MALDIVES

потанин.jpg

President of the mining company Nornickel got himself a third yacht and a plane for the New Year’s. Now, Potanin’ collection includes three ships – Anastasia, Nirvana and Barbara, the cost of which amounts to $ 500 million.

Barbara left the port of Dubai on December 23 and headed for the islands. Together with the yacht Nirvana on January 4, they were at the Maldives. The yacht, named after her daughter, is moored in France.

IGOR SECHIN – ITALY

сечин.jpg

The yacht called Princess Olga also known as Amore Vero is moored in the Italian port of the city of La Spezia. According to observations of Russiangate, the vessel, which probably belongs to head of Rosneft Igor Sechin, has been in the port for a long time – on New Year’s Eve too.

Is it a coincidence that the trip to Italy prevented the head of the state corporation from coming to court for hearings on the case of ex-Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukaev in December, where he was a key witness?

The cost of the yacht is about $ 190 million.

DMITRY MEDVEDEV – FINLAND

медведев.jpg

The last time the yacht called Photinia was seen in the Finnish port of Kotka on September 30, 2017. The vessel for $ 5 million, named for the church name of the Prime Minister’s wife, runs from St. Petersburg towards this port for three years on regular basis.

Whether the Prime Minister celebrated the New Year on the yacht, abroad or in the house for a duck in Plyos, we could not have established for certain.

ALICHER USMANOV – SPAIN

усманов.jpg

Dilbar, the yacht of the Russian oligarch, is moored in Barcelona since November. There, a ship worth $ 600 million entered the New Year.

What’s Alisher Usmanov’s opinion on the independence of Catalonia, we do not know: unfortunately, the friend of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is not interested in keep his video blog going.

CORRUPTION FIGHTERS JAILED FOR BRIBES

Dmitry Zakharchenko, former head of a division of the Main Directorate for Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Enforcement

Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko, a defendant of one of the most resonant criminal cases lately, served as acting head of the “T” Department of the Main Directorate for Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Enforcement of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs. The directorate, in which Zakharchenko worked, was engaged in corruption violations in the spheres of the fuel and energy complex and chemistry. Soon after the arrest of the Colonel, who was accused of taking bribes, abuse of official authority and obstruction of justice, the directorate was liquidated.

Looking into Zakharchenko’s case, it’s easy to get confused: security forces seized a lot of money from the Colonel several times, came up with and dropped new charges, initiated cases against his relatives. During the searches at Zakharchenko’s, they have found out more than 9 billion rubles. Later, charges of abuse of office were dropped, however, there were four episodes of bribery, which the anti-corruption fighter allegedly received for patronage and warnings about the upcoming searches.

Denis Sugrobov, former head of the Main Directorate of Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Enforcement of the Ministry of Internal Affairs

Lieutenant-General Denis Sugrobov, one of the youngest generals in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, was the head of the MIA’s Main Directorate of Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Enforcement, the same agency in which Dmitry Zakharchenko worked. The Directorate is a structural subdivision of the Russian MIA responsible for counteracting economic and corruption crimes, money laundering, criminal associations. Sugrobov, while working for the MIA, took part in the investigation of the Oboronservis cases, thefts during the construction of facilities for the Sochi Olympics, and thefts at OJSC Rosagroleasing.

Sugrobov and eleven of his subordinates were accused of organizing a criminal community, abuse of power, forging evidence and provoking bribery. According to the investigation’s version, with which the court agreed, Sugrobov and other staff of the central directorate falsified evidence of criminal activities of officials (for example, a member of the Federation Council, the head of the administration of Smolensk, an official of Rosreestr, etc.), provoking them to receive bribes. Sugrobov did not participate in criminal operations, carrying out general management of the group. Sugrobov himself denied the guilt, claiming that his persecution was organized by members of the special services.

On April 27, 2017, the Moscow City Court sentenced Denis Sugrobov to 22 years imprisonment in a strict regime colony. On December 19, the Supreme Court mitigated the verdict, shortening the term of serving a sentence of up to 12 years.

He was found guilty of giving a bribe in a large amount. 700 thousand rubles were intended for the head of the Department for Combating Illegal Migration of the Department of Migration Control of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Samara Region. For this money, the officer of the Department promised Apshev “a general connivance in the service”, as well as non-bringing to administrative responsibility for violations in the field of migration. Apshev was detained at the transfer of the first part of the bribe. The founder of the anti-corruption organization was sentenced to four years of probation and a fine of 3.3 million rubles.

Anticorruption Committee of the Samara Region began its work in February 2017; the head of the organization was former prosecutor of the Komsomol District of Togliatti Anatoly Stolnikov. The founders of the organization stated that the main activities of the committee would be “gathering information about the facts of corruption, its analysis and transfer to law enforcement bodies, as well as public monitoring of the progress of the investigation of corruption cases.”

Former chief of the Anti-Corruption Department of the MIA for in Stavropol Alexander Batagov was caught red handed. Batagov prepared the bribe for the head of the private security company Patriot Plus. In exchange for 400 thousand rubles Batagov promised not to initiate a criminal case on embezzlement of budget funds in the implementation of the federal regional program on the employment of the population. In March 2017, the court sentenced Batagov to four and a half years in a penal colony and a fine of 1.2 million rubles.

Balantsev was charged with taking a bribe of 600 thousand rubles, without which the Major allegedly refused to conduct a check on the statement of the manager of TransCapitalBank about theft of funds. The manager complained to the FSB department for extortion, and as a result of Balantsov was brought to justice.

The policeman himself has another version of the events: through his wife, Balantzov conveyed to the media. As Balantsov said, “from the very first days of work in the Region, I realized that for many years the fight against corruption in the Zarechny and Beloyarsky Districts was just on paper.” He managed to identify the criminal scheme, which involved the administration of the city, and even managed to initiate a criminal case, which provoked the conflict. The investigation’s version on refusing to conduct a check Balantsov calls a feign, insisting that the statement of the manager was issued in the hindsight and there was no issue with the check.

Vladimir Boborykin, former security officer of the Department of Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Enforcement of the MIA Directorate in the Admiralteisky District of St. Petersburg

Vladimir Boborykin, an operative of the Department of Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Enfrocement of the MIA in the Admiralty District received five years in a colony. As established by the Nevsky District Court, Boborykin suggested one of the suspects to agree on the termination of a criminal case. The operative first estimated his services at 4 million rubles, but later reduced the amount to 2.5 million. The suspect complained to the FSB, after which a special operation was carried out and Boborykin was detained red-handed.

Maxim Kofman, former head of the Department of Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Enforcement of the MIA for the Municipal Department Krasnoyarskoye

The former head of the relevant department of the city of Krasnoyarsk, Maxim Kofman, acted on a much smaller scale. For warnings about future inspections in the sphere of gambling, the corruption fighter asked only 45 thousand rubles. In April 2014, Kofman was sentenced to a year in a penal colony and a fine of 1.8 million rubles. The case was heard according to a special procedure – Kofman concluded a pre-trial cooperation agreement.

Vyacheslav Stepnov, former Chairman of the all-Russian public organization Center for Combating Corruption in State Authorities

In 2014, the court found Stepnov guilty in transferring 2.5 million rubles, from May 2012 to February 2013, as a bribe to one of the leaders of the Russian Railways branch – the East Siberian Directorate of Traffic Management. For this, Stepnov, who owns two transport companies, got access to scarce freight rail cars.

Center for Combating Corruption in State Authorities was established in 2006; now, the organization has more than thirty regional offices. Among the goals of the NGO is “assistance to the President of the Russian Federation, the Government of the Russian Federation in implementing a large-scale and consistent policy in the field of combating the spread of corruption in public authorities” and “facilitating the formation of public control over compliance with the legislation of the Russian Federation on state and municipal service.”

A member of the regional Prosecutor’s Office, Vladimir Komin, stated that “for the entire existence of the Regional Court, this is the first verdict against an official who received such a large bribe.”

RUSSIAN OFFICIALS’ СHILDREN WHO STUDIED IN THE USA

Russiangate continues to tell which Russian officials paid for the education of their heirs in foreign educational institutions. This time – the USA: prestigious business schools, Ivy League and doctoral degrees in America.


Anton Astakhov

In Russia, the son of Pavel Astakhov, the former Russian ombudsman for children’s rights, studied at the private Orthodox boarding school called Retro. In it, he studied not only the foundations of Orthodoxy, but also foreign languages. The course did not help him much – in one of the interviews, Anton Astakhov complained: “I believe that in Russian schools I only spoiled my language skills. When I began to travel to America, I began to speak properly.”

Astakhov’s son studied at two London colleges and went to conquer the United States. In 2009, he entered the business school of the European School of Economics in New York. The cost of the Master’s program in management at this school ranges from £ 16,000 to £ 35,000 (from 1.2 million to 2.7 million rubles) for the entire period of study.

Yekaterina Vinokurova

The daughter of the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sergei Lavrov, received her first education in America. She first studied at the private Dwight School, one of the elite educational institutions in Manhattan. However, the high-ranking father did not pay for the daughter’s education there. He did not have enough money, so he made a deal with the principal. Yekaterina studied at school for free, and, in return, Lavrov (then still Russia’s envoy to the UN) lectured to the students of The Dwight School.

After that, Lavrov’s daughter studied political science at Columbia University in New York. This is one of the most prestigious universities in the US, which is a member of the Ivy League. The cost of training at the Faculty of Political Science at Columbia University is $ 41 thousand per year (2.3 million rubles).

Anastasia Fetisova

Having retired as a professional hockey player, Vyacheslav Fetisov became an official. In the middle of 2000s, he managed the Federal Agency for Physical Education and Sports. In 2011, he became the first Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Social Policy of the Council of Federation, and, in September 2016, took a similar position, but this time in the State Duma Committee for Physical Education, Sport, Tourism and Youth Affairs.

In May of the same year, it transpired that Fetisov’s daughter Anastasia entered the Art School in New York (NYU Tisch School of the Arts). There, she studies in as the graduate in the cinema school. The cost of training per annum depends on the number of selected courses and ranges from $ 20 to $ 60 thousand ($ 1.1-3.4 million).

Alexander Fursenko

The son of Andrei Fursenko, the former Minister of Education, went to receive an American education straight after school. In 2001, Alexander Fursenko received a bachelor’s degree from the New York University. It is the largest private research university in the United States. On average, education in it costs $ 46 thousand (2.6 million rubles) per year.

In America, Fursenko’s son received the second higher education. He chose the law faculty at Stanford University. In the list of graduates, he is designated as “Doctor of Jurisprudence.” To get such a degree at Stanford these days, one needs to pay about $ 25 thousand (1.4 million rubles) for a six-month course.

Stepan Remezkov

State Duma deputy of VI and VII convocations Alexander Remezkov sent his son Stepan to study at Valley Forge Military Academy & College in the United States. It is a military college in Pennsylvania with almost a hundred-year history. Many of the graduates of this educational institution become professional military men. Remezkov has studied in Valley Forge for a year and graduated in 2010 with a gold medal for success in studies and pilotage. Tuition in the academic year 2017-2018 will cost one $ 50 thousand (2.8 million rubles).

After Valley Forge, the Deputy’s son entered the prestigious Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business. The University is located not far from New York. Among its graduates are former US presidents Gerald Ford, Bill Clinton, George HW Bush, and Dwight Eisenhower. When Remezkov was enrolled and graduated is unknown. It was assumed that in 2014 he will receive a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Now, the year of study at this university costs $ 60 thousand (3.4 million rubles).

Koreas to march under ‘united’ flag in Olympic Games after first high level talks in two years

North and South Korea have agreed to march together under a single “unified Korea” flag at next month’s Winter Olympics in the South.

They also agreed to field a joint women’s ice hockey team in rare talks at the truce village of Panmunjom.

These are the first high-level talks between the countries in more than two years.

It marks a thaw in relations that began in the new year when North Korea offered to send a team to the games.

Pepe Escobar: China’s strategy in the Middle East – Make trade not war

China’s “Go West” strategy was brought into sharp focus at a forum in Shanghai last weekend. Billed as the Belt and Road Initiative: Towards Greater Cooperation between China and the Middle East, it highlighted key aspects of Beijing’s wider plan.

The New Silk Roads, or the Belt and Road Initiative, involve six key economic corridors, connecting Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. One, in particular, extends through the Middle East to North Africa. This is where the Belt and Road meets MENA or the Middle East and North Africa.

Of course, Beijing’s massive economic project goes way beyond merely exporting China’s excess production capacity. That is part of the plan, along with building selected industrial bases in MENA countries by using technical and production expertise from the world’s second-largest economy.

Again, this is will connect western China to the eastern Mediterranean. It will mean developing a corridor through projects such as the Red Med railway. There are also plans to expand ports, such as Oman’s Duqm, as well as substantial investment in Turkey.
