Alexey Navalny presents
Pipe dreams - Russia fighting corruption?
LIFT OFF
Phase I of the 'Eastern Siberia - Pacific Ocean' pipeline system was brought on stream in late 2009.
Alexey Navalny (Transneft shareholder): 'This is a colossal project, on a national scale.'
Its construction was directly supervised by the then President and current Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin.
This was the biggest pipeline project in Russia's post-Soviet history.
The 'Eastern Siberia - Pacific Ocean' (ESPO) pipeline was conceived to bring Russian oil to the US and Pacific Rim markets.
Its estimated length is over 4000 km.
The project is led by Transneft JSC.
The first stretch of the pipeline was opened on 28 December 2009.
The construction expenses have already exceeded 15 billion U.S. dollars.
Navalny: 'We obtained official documents provided by Transneft upon the request of the Russian Federal Audit Chamber.
In 2008 Transneft and the ESPO project as a whole were audited by the Audit Chamber.
The audit's findings were classified and not published.
The documents we obtained are official ones provided confidentially by Transneft to the Audit Chamber, our allegations are not based on our outside analysis.
The documents are certified by Transneft officials' signatures. The documents in question may be found on www.navalny.ru .
This report shocked us. The documents in question may be found on www.navalny.ru .
The audit demonstrates that billions of dollars were embezzled in the course of the ESPO pipeline construction.
Dozens of offences are documented over 154 pages. The commonest scheme of embezzlement was as follows:
Transneft awarded construction tenders at inflated prices to unknown contractors. The documents in question may be found on www.navalny.ru .
The average overpricing of work was 27%. The documents in question may be found on www.navalny.ru
None of Transneft's contractors were in a position to carry out the works independently The documents in question may be found on www.navalny.ru
some contractors were companies registered offshore with a single employee The documents in question may be found on www.navalny.ru
others were established specially a day before contracts were signed, some of the documents submitted in the course of registration turn out to have been falsified.
The head of Transneft at the time in question was Semyon Vainshtok.
You would be quite mistaken to expect Semyon Vainshtok to be currently on trial or in prison
Putin: 'I would like to suggest that you head the government organisational committee for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.'
Semyon Vainshtok (President of Transneft JSC 1999-2007): 'Thank you for your confidence in me, Vladimir Vladimirovich.
I can leave Transneft with an easy conscience, it's become a stable company, well-positioned in the market place.
Navalny: We have reason to assert that Putin personally provided the political cover for these acts of corruption.
It was Putin who entrusted Semyon Vainshtok with the organisation of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics instead of requiring him to stand trial.
Dmitri Kozak (Minister of Regional Development): 'I have prepared a presentation for the President on Semyon Vainshtok's work at the corporation as well his previous achievements with a view to awarding him a medal.
(1980 Moscow Olympics theme tune)
A number of large scale government investment projects are currently being carried out in Russia today:
2014 Sochi Winter Olympics - over 950 billion rubles Nord Stream and South Stream pipelines - over 650 billion rubles
ESPO Phase II - over 400 billion rubles Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit - over 284 billion rubles Skolkovo science park - over 100 billion rubles
IF WE REMAIN SILENT, THE THIEVING WILL CONTINUE!
