Who owns the building and what is in it?

Initially, all media reported that the building of the Platan Research Institute, which is associated with the domestic defense industry and is engaged in the development of electron beam devices, semiconductor lasers and liquid crystal screens, was on fire.

However, the Ruselectronics holding, which includes Platan, has already denied this information. They claim that the object became private property back in the late nineties and since then has not been related to the research institute.

As for the alleged owner, you can find advertisements on the Internet for renting out space in the burnt building.

The company has many problems: closed court debts of nine million and current debts of more than six million. These are utility bills. Information about him in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities is recognized as unreliable. During an audit, the Federal Tax Service established that it was not at the specified address. Tax officials blocked accounts. The general director of the company is 65-year-old Valery Obraztsov. He comes from Murmansk and has a residence permit in the Leningrad region, in a good-quality cottage in the Tosnensky district. Bella’s beneficiary Tatyana Belousova is currently undergoing bankruptcy proceedings. She was born in the city of Petropavlovka, Dnepropetrovsk region.

As Life.ru found out, the building that caught fire has an area of ​​22,500 square meters. According to directories, there are 16 enterprises located inside.

Among them are several industries that could potentially be a fire hazard: the Virom Tech confectionery company, the Technoservice and Teksma metal plants, the Lloveras Rus company that assembles food equipment, and the Potok Project, a dairy-related enterprise. Obviously, this is just the tip of the iceberg. According to the SPARK database, about 100 operating companies of various profiles are registered in the fire building in Zavodsky Proezd.

By the way, despite the fact that the building was sold, the land under it is still classified as “For housing industrial and production activities (under the Science building – the high-rise part).” This is how this area is designated in the Unified State Register of Real Estate.

Life.ru found on the Fryazin administration website the results of a recent checks civil defense protective structure at this address: the tightness is not ensured, the waterproofing is broken, combustible materials were used during finishing. From the results of the audit it also follows that the building, which previously belonged to the Platon Research Institute, was indeed privatized. But the protective structure was not subject to privatization and remained the property of the Russian Federation (*country sponsor of terrorism).
