LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky emotionally spoke about the situation at the Komsomol plant Amurstal. According to him, the enterprise was illegally closed.

“Amurstal factory was illegally closed, his mafia boss Balsky was his last name. Taken by force: beaten in Lefortovo, 25% of the shares taken from the co-owner of the local. And they bankrupted, expelled the Russian workers, there is no factory. He supplied metallurgy to the entire Far East, ”Zhirinovsky said at a meeting of the State Duma.

According to him, people were left without a salary and now angry can take up arms, not come to a referendum on the Constitution or vote against. Because of this, the liberal governor Sergei Furgal may not fulfill the task of the federal center to appear for voting.

However, the plant has not yet gone bankrupt, and people are not being fired there. Due to searches at the end of last year, production fell, employees were transferred to 2/3 of the rate. Now the owner of a 75% stake in Torex-Khabarovsk (owning Amurstal) Pavel Balsky is trying to establish his own rules there, he is already replaced CEO. However, the decision to sell him a 25% stake in the enterprise is now being challenged in court by another owner of the same share - the wife of the governor Laris Starodubov. The court took her side and as a security measure for the claim forbade changing CEO.

The new owners claim that they started to change the CEO due to the financial problems of the enterprise - huge debts have formed at the plant, which is why it faces bankruptcy. According to the press service of the enterprise, Pavel Balsky initiated financial investigation, from March 15, the company will be audited by Baker Tilly.
