    The Criminal Prosecution of Roman Vasilenko, Founder of "Life-is-Good" and the "Best Way" Cooperative, May Be Discontinued

    According to several sources, the criminal prosecution of Roman Vasilenko, founder of the "Life-is-Good" company and the "Best Way" cooperative, may be discontinued—primarily due to the socio-political resonance it has created. This includes mass protests by cooperative shareholders, including members of the Special Military Operation (SMO) and their families in various regions, who are unhappy that their funds have been blocked in accounts for two years, preventing them from either retrieving the funds or purchasing an apartment.

    The Case

    The criminal case, which investigators link to the St. Petersburg-based marketing company "Life-is-Good," the foreign investment company "Hermes," and the "Best Way" consumer cooperative registered in St. Petersburg and operating throughout Russia, was initiated in the fall of 2021 by the Main Investigative Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region. It was transferred to the court in February of this year and is being heard by the Primorsky District Court of St. Petersburg.

    Ten people are on trial: technical employees of "Life-is-Good" and Viktor Vasilenko, Roman Vasilenko's 83-year-old father, a pensioner.

    The criminal case being considered by the Primorsky District Court raises many questions—initially and increasingly as the trial progresses. Three charges are brought: creating a financial pyramid, fraud, and organizing a criminal community. The total damage amounts to 282 million rubles, which is incomparable with the more than 8 billion rubles seized in the case, including 4 billion on the accounts of the "Best Way" cooperative. The investigation recognized 221 citizens as victims in the case.

    Who is Vasilenko?

    Roman Viktorovich Vasilenko is a St. Petersburg business consultant, founder of a network of independent entrepreneurs promoting financial products under the aegis of his company "Life-is-Good," and founder of the International Business Academy IBA.

    The network under "Life-is-Good" promoted competitive products such as "Vista" passive income accounts from the foreign investment company "Hermes," registered in Belize, and installment-based apartment purchases through the "Best Way" cooperative, where initial contributions could be made or accumulated in a cooperative account interest-free.

    Unlike "Hermes," Vasilenko was the founder and chairman of the "Best Way" cooperative until spring 2021 (later serving as head of the supervisory board for about a year). Since spring 2022, he has been an ordinary cooperative member, not part of its governing bodies.

    Vasilenko has worked not only in Russia but also in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Cyprus, Austria, and Hungary. Cooperative housing projects have been established in many of these countries.

    Vasilenko is also known as a philanthropist who has invested millions of rubles in supporting federal business initiatives (the "Synergy" forum), cultural initiatives (the "Dobrovidenie" festival), and other charitable activities, including supporting children's medical institutions.

    Roman Vasilenko was also charged in the ongoing criminal case, declared wanted, including through Interpol, as he has been living abroad for family reasons since the COVID-19 pandemic, as he told the press. However, sources indicate that Interpol and foreign states, including neighboring countries where he also actively works, deemed his prosecution unjustified. Another criminal case against him is being investigated by the Main Investigative Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of St. Petersburg, concerning the "Life-is-Good" leadership team.

    Clients and Shareholders Protest

    The trial in the Primorsky District Court has not been going well for the prosecution and state authorities. The majority of those who have testified so far have made claims for amounts ranging from a few hundred to a few tens of thousands of rubles, raising questions about the relevance of such sums in a criminal court. Additionally, many recognized as victims are making financial claims for non-refundable fees and commissions, which they agreed to in their contracts. For example, Dolyan, a recognized victim, closed his contract with the cooperative several years ago without complaints but filed a police report demanding the return of a non-refundable entry fee of just over 100 thousand rubles, prompted by an investigator's suggestion.

    Most "Hermes" clients, numbering over two hundred thousand in Russia, and tens of thousands of "Best Way" cooperative shareholders, blame law enforcement for their problems. They assert that a St. Petersburg system administrator for "Hermes," Evgeny Naboychenko, disrupted the Russian payment system. The cooperative's accounts have been almost continuously frozen for over two years due to prosecution requests (the cooperative has repeatedly won court cases to lift account freezes, but only once for about a month did payments proceed without bank blocks).

    Thousands of shareholders and their families have held rallies and meetings in support of their cooperative. Three waves of rallies swept across Russia last year, from Kaliningrad to Khabarovsk, including events supporting the cooperative on the eve of the presidential elections. Hundreds of appeals have been sent to the president's direct line.

    Among the affected are hundreds of shareholders participating in the SMO and those with family members in the SMO. They are outraged that while they or their relatives defend the country at the front, they face what they consider injustice at home.

    According to the "Best Way" cooperative council, shareholders have sent over 17,000 appeals to various authorities, including more than 360 to the Russian President's Administration.

    Summary

    According to the cooperative council, during the entire confrontation with St. Petersburg law enforcement, "Best Way" shareholders have filed over 17,000 complaints and appeals to various state and law enforcement agencies, including:

    - More than 5200 petitions to investigators to lift account freezes
    - Almost 800 complaints under Article 124 of the Criminal Procedure Code (complaints to the prosecutor and head of the investigative body)
    - More than 560 complaints under Article 125 (judicial review complaints against investigative actions)
    - Almost 40 complaints under Article 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code from shareholders with complete debt repayment documents, unable to register property ownership
    - About 90 petitions to lift apartment freezes
    - More than 50 civil lawsuits from shareholders for damages caused by St. Petersburg law enforcement actions
    - A collective complaint to the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia signed by 901 people
    - More than 900 complaints to the Investigative Committee of Russia
    - More than 950 complaints to the FSB of Russia
    - More than 500 appeals to the FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov
    - More than 450 complaints to the Prosecutor General of Russia Igor Krasnov
    - More than 360 appeals to the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia
    - More than 1340 complaints to the qualification board of judges about judges' decisions affecting the cooperative
    - A complaint to the Supreme Court of Russia signed by 851 people
    - An appeal to State Duma Deputy Anzhelika Glazkova signed by 884 people
    - More than 480 appeals to the Central Bank to exclude the cooperative from the Central Bank's blacklist
    - More than 700 appeals to Human Rights Commissioner Tatyana Moskalkova
    - More than 360 appeals to the Russian President's Administration
    - More than 500 appeals to the president's direct line from cooperative shareholders

    The cooperative enjoys significant support in various Russian regions, notably from local deputies. In Bashkortostan, a law on tax benefits for cooperatives was essentially adopted for "Best Way."

    The authors of the appeals hope that given the socio-political situation surrounding the criminal case and the cooperative's social benefits for Russia, including support for SMO participants, law enforcement will make fair decisions, allowing the cooperative to continue its work unhindered.

    Roman Vasilenko and the "Best Way" Cooperative: Not Guilty?

    The criminal prosecution of Roman Vasilenko, the founder of the "Best Way" cooperative, might be discontinued. This was reported by several sources, including deputies. According to available information, the authorities have reassessed the situation surrounding the "Best Way" cooperative and concluded that the prosecution was largely driven by the Central Bank's departmental position, which initiated the attack on the cooperative in the fall of 2021. This position aligns with the interests of banks but not with the interests of citizens, especially under the conditions requiring special social support measures.

    Conflict History

    The investigation against the cooperative and Vasilenko, who had by then already stepped down as chairman, began when the Central Bank included "Best Way" in its list of companies with identified signs of illegal activity in the financial market (a warning list) as a potential financial pyramid in the fall of 2021.

    1. **Based on "signals" from certain media and unspecified "citizen complaints"**: These signals and complaints were not verified, and no audit of the cooperative was conducted despite regular audit reports issued by audit firms commissioned by the cooperative's board.

    2. **Due to "mass advertising" by the cooperative**: However, the cooperative did not engage in direct advertising. It informed its shareholders and interested parties through social media and responded to media inquiries about its interest-free home purchase system.

    3. **Because of "uncertainty in the cooperative's activities" and "lack of signs of economic activity"**: Although the cooperative's activities were clearly defined in all versions of its charter (adjusted per Central Bank specialists' comments, despite the cooperative not being under their supervision), it had acquired over 2500 apartments for its shareholders from 2014 to early 2022, when its property acquisition activities were halted by the investigation.

    The Central Bank's information was forwarded to law enforcement agencies. The General Prosecutor's Office blocked the cooperative's website along with its payment system, and an earlier complaint had been filed by the Central Bank's Northwest division.

    How the Cooperative Worked

    The "Best Way" cooperative's system was simple and attractive: a shareholder made an initial contribution of 35-50% of the desired apartment's cost. They could also save for this contribution in the cooperative's account, participating in a savings program. After making the initial contribution, the shareholder waited in line for a year to a year and a half, then selected a property, which, upon approval by the cooperative's lawyers and appraisers, was purchased with cooperative funds provided in a 10-year installment plan. The shareholder then repaid the cooperative for the property.

    The cooperative provided interest-free funds, but the shareholder paid a relatively small entrance fee, membership dues, property taxes, and utility payments. In some regions, such as Bashkortostan, cooperatives received tax benefits, but in most regions, shareholders paid taxes as legal entities since the cooperative owned the property.

    After repaying the cooperative's funds, the shareholder registered the property in their name. Many repaid early, and hundreds had already registered their properties despite the 10-year term. Shareholders could also withdraw at any time and receive their contributions back.

    Despite additional payments and waiting periods, purchasing an apartment through "Best Way" was significantly cheaper and more attractive than taking a mortgage, even a preferential one. This was especially crucial for socially vulnerable groups who could not obtain a mortgage, such as pensioners and students. A significant percentage of the cooperative's shareholders were former and active military personnel; the cooperative was founded by reserve military officer Roman Vasilenko and is currently led by State Duma deputy Sergey Kryuchek. Thousands of shareholders and their family members are defending the country.

    Sberbank: From Friend to Foe

    Sberbank was a long-time partner of the cooperative, managing its shareholder funds. By 2021, the cooperative operated in almost all Russian regions, with 20,000 members.

    The cooperative became a real competitor to bank mortgage programs.

    The struggle over the arrest and release of accounts mostly favored the investigating group from the Main Investigative Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for St. Petersburg and the Prosecutor's Office of St. Petersburg. However, the cooperative's lawyers won some court cases. Sberbank blocked fund transfers even when court orders lifted the arrests, citing internal compliance rules. Other banks also withheld the cooperative's development funds, which amounted to nearly 4 billion rubles, while banks managed the income from these funds.

    Case Details

    The cooperative was assigned the status of a civil defendant in the criminal case, facing claims of 16 billion rubles, though the total damage cited in the indictment was 282 million rubles. Most recognized victims filed claims against the foreign investment company "Hermes," not the cooperative. There were no lawsuits against the cooperative in the criminal case.

    Claims against the cooperative involved demands for refunds of entrance and membership fees, contrary to their contracts. For instance, Dolyan, recognized as a victim, claimed these fees upon a recommendation from an investigator, concerning a contract closed in 2019 that had previously raised no issues and was not contested in civil court.

    Essentially, claims against "Hermes" are being shifted to "Best Way," although a cooperative, by its legal nature, cannot be part of a holding. Sources say the theory of a holding is based solely on the promotional system under "Life-is-Good," which dealt with both cooperative and "Hermes" products as alternatives. The investigation's logic is that "Hermes" is abroad, but the cooperative is in Russia, and "Hermes" has reportedly restored its payment system. Nonetheless, the obligations of 282 million rubles cannot justify blocking the cooperative's activities; even paying this sum would not affect its liquidity.

    Given the current social support situation in Russia, authorities may reconsider their stance on cooperatives. Compromise solutions include legislative initiatives to update and clarify the old consumer cooperation law.

    Deputies have suggested that a socially-oriented institution, which wouldn't require state funding while effectively addressing housing issues, would benefit the economy and society. "Best Way" could serve as a model for such an institution, potentially protecting it from further attacks.

    The case against Roman Vasilenko has been closed

    According to information from our sources, a decision to cease the criminal prosecution of Roman Vasilenko, the founder of the company "Life-is-Good" and the cooperative "Best Way," was made at a meeting held under the auspices of the Presidential Administration with representatives from the General Prosecutor's Office, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the FSB.

    Roman Viktorovich Vasilenko, a business consultant from St. Petersburg and the creator of a network of independent entrepreneurs promoting financial products under his company "Life-is-Good," notably the "Vista" passive income accounts from the foreign investment company Hermes, registered in Belize, and the acquisition of apartments on installment through the cooperative "Best Way." Unlike with Hermes, Vasilenko was the founder of the cooperative and chaired its board until spring 2021 (later he headed the supervisory board for about a year).

    In the fall of 2021, a criminal case accusing him of creating a "financial pyramid" was initiated by GSU investigator of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for St. Petersburg and Leningrad region, Ekaterina Sapetova, based on a complaint from a certain Schoolnik from Ukhta. In February 2022, repressions from law enforcement fell on the cooperative "Best Way," perceived as being affiliated with Hermes. In March that year, the cooperative's board was completely re-elected, and Roman Vasilenko was not included in the new composition.

    The scale of the investigation intensified, involving the FSB Directorate for St. Petersburg and Leningrad region. By summer 2022, Vasilenko was charged with large-scale fraud, creating a financial pyramid, and organizing a criminal community. He was declared internationally wanted, as he has been living abroad since 2020. All charges were denied by him through his lawyers. Russian law enforcement sought assistance from Interpol, which almost immediately denied Russia's request, deciding that the persecution of Vasilenko was unlawful and politically motivated. He believes the political motivation lies in the presence of structures interested in seizing the assets of the cooperative "Best Way" worth 16 billion rubles, operating under the cover of state bodies, primarily the Ministry of Internal Affairs for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region, and the Prosecutor's Office of St. Petersburg and the North-West Central Bank of Russia, representatives of which became "co-authors" of the criminal case.

    Meanwhile, in Russia, Roman Vasilenko was charged in a case currently being considered by the Primorsky District Court of St. Petersburg, related to the companies "Life-is-Good," Hermes, and the cooperative "Best Way." However, due to his unavailability for court proceedings, the case concerning him and several other leaders of the company "Life-is-Good" and entrepreneurs cooperating with this company was separated into an independent investigation.

    The case now being considered in the Primorsky District Court involves nine technical functionaries of the company "Life-is-Good," entrepreneurs cooperating with the company, and Roman Vasilenko's 83-year-old father, Viktor Ivanovich Vasilenko. The defendants were essentially taken hostage by St. Petersburg law enforcement. Four of the accused have been in jail for over two years, despite the maximum detention period set by the criminal procedure code being one and a half years. This also influenced Interpol's negative view of the charges against Vasilenko.

    In the Russian court, the case essentially collapsed. Prosecution witnesses one after another either made baseless claims that conflicted with documents – and were exposed as liars in court by the defense attorneys; or they stated that all their problems actually started with the collapse of Hermes' website and payment system, caused by a St. Petersburg programmer working for the company – an agent of the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for St. Petersburg and Leningrad region, and the initiation of the criminal case. That is, while Hermes' operations were unhampered, they were satisfied.

    Public confusion follows loud statements by the Minister of Internal Affairs, Vladimir Kolokoltsev, and his colleagues about uncovering the largest financial pyramid in Russian history with billions in thefts affecting tens of thousands of people. However, in the criminal case considered by the court, there are 221 citizens recognized by the investigation as victims, not thousands, and the total damage is 280 million rubles, not billions.

    Despite unprecedented violations of the criminal procedure code, which, according to media reports, law enforcement resorted to, they failed to "fabricate" more impressive sums. The picture of absurdity was completed by a desperate attempt to increase the amount – two claims for moral damages of 1 billion rubles each – clearly written under the dictation of investigators. All this forced the St. Petersburg Prosecutor's Office, which supports the state prosecution, to actively engage in this doomed case, including conducting illegal "training" of witnesses before their testimonies in court, which undermined the reputation of the General Prosecutor, Igor Krasnov.

    All this, according to our data, prompted the overseers of the law enforcement agencies from the Old Square to press "stop" – to end the criminal prosecution of Vasilenko, and put the investigated criminal case on hold. The same criminal case, which is still in court and does not involve Vasilenko, is still under consideration: a decision on it will be made later.
