Doing business in Russia is like playing Russian Roulette — the risk may outshine any winning
My name is Aleksander Selyutin and I've been protecting businesses from police checks and abuses for the past 8 years. I want to share my independent vision of this problem from the agency Bloomberg, which singled out our company, as, in fact, the only solution to avoid such problems.

When Russian Officials «Nightmare» Your Business, You Can Lose Everything — Even Your Life
«...It's easy to see the whole of Russian law enforcement as some corrupt and monolithic corporation, but I think the truth is much more complex,» Mark Galeotti, an expert on post-Soviet organized crime, said.

There are honest cops and judges, and there are corrupt ones. There are particular knots of corrupt law enforcers that can be virtually considered organized-crime gangs in their own right. The real problem is systemic. The Kremlin wants them to fight crime but only when it is convenient, only when it doesn't rock the boat, only when it targets those not its friends or allies...»
Unfortunately, the system of pressure on business is much more effective than its protection system:
0,36%
of criminal court trials resulted in acquittals, according to The Russia's Supreme Court. Courts almost always sympathize with the state
46 000
business-related criminal cases had reached the court (of 200,000)
83%
of businessmen involved in business-related criminal cases had lost completely or partially their businesses
To deep regret, in most cases objectivity in the institution of criminal proceedings gives way to selfish interests of competitors, business partners, officials or even former spouses.
Bloomberg:
Olga Romanova, Founder of
Russia Behind Bars
«...Many cases are initiated by law enforcement agents without any citizen filing a complaint...and courts often issue guilty verdicts without establishing whether any party has suffered damage from the defendant's actions.»
«I'm convinced that to wait for checks, the institution of criminal proceedings, and even more, the trial — a failed strategy. My work experience in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the federal judge (total 17 years) shows that the only possible scenario for effective protection is quality training.»

the independent investigation
Law Enforcement as Organized Crime
«...There is even a cottage industry in girding company owners and their employees for a legal assault, the sort of hostile-environment training that executives and journalists working in dangerous places are given.

One firm, Selyutin and Partners, offers an audit to identify a company's vulnerabilities, followed by workshops for top managers and other staff on dealing with law-enforcement agents—how to talk to them, how to react to threats or raids. Aleksander Selyutin, the firm's owner and a former policemen and judge, numbers among his clients both Russian and foreign companies, including U.S. companies, that are doing business in Russia.»

Well, what can you do right now to avoid police checks or minimize its consequences?
1
Put out of sight disputable counterparts' documents
All confidential documents should be stored in a locked office or a safe! Best to take them out of the office. For example, give documents to reliable third parties.
2
Improve the access system
The visitor must enter the office passing through several stages of control. Then you will be informed about the arrival of the police from the guard post or from the Pass Office.
3
Conclusion of an agreement with a lawyer and get a personal lawyer card
In some cases much depends on this card. If you have no access to a lawyer, for the two days spent in the police station you will confess to everything there is to say, because you will not be given any food and water.
