Company of Prosecutor General Chaika’s son is the only garbage disposal operator in Yaroslavl region
Igor Chaika’s company owns a sorting complex on Altufevskoe highway in Moscow and a park of garbage trucks. In 2015, Khartiya won two 42.6-billion-ruble ($693 million) contracts for garbage disposal in Moscow for a period of 15 years.
Khartiya, 60% of shares of which is owned by the son of Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika, Igor Chaika, has become a single operator for the collection, removal, and disposal of garbage in the Yaroslavl region. The protocol on the conclusion of the contract is published on the official website for information about auctions.
The contract with Chaika’s company is worth about 16 billion rubles ($260 million). The contract with Khartiya LLC is concluded for almost 9 years.
The media report that the Yaroslavl region government is to enter into an agreement with Khartiya until May 1, 2018. According to the contract terms, the company will begin its activities under the terms of the contract starting on September 1, 2018.
As noted by Novaya Gazeta, the regional operator for garbage disposal and recycle was determined the day before, at a meeting of the tender commission in the regional department of environment and nature management. The tender commission found the bid of Khartiya’s competitor not conforming to the bidding requirements.
In turn, Khartiya has been successfully implementing pilot projects to optimize the collection and removal of solid municipal waste in the Uglich and Breitovsk municipal districts, as well as the Dzerzhinsky district of Yaroslavl, since 2017, the Yaroslavl region government noted.
According to RBC, Igor Chaika completed the transaction on purchasing a 60-percent stake in Khartiya LLC in December 2017. Company founder, Aleksandr Tsurkan, has the remaining 40%. In 2018, according to Igor Chaika, Tsurkan intended to completely withdraw from the owners of the company's assets.
