SkyWay by Yunitskiy – An MMM Bitcoin for Suckers.

SkyWay by Yunitskiy – An MMM Bitcoin for Suckers.

Do you think SkyWay is an innovative project, similar to Elon Musk’s endeavors but on Russian soil? Not at all – it’s a nationwide scam that existed long before the "Bitcoin epidemic" hit Russia. Back in the distant year 2000, Anatoly Yunitskiy emerged from the dust of Soviet space exploration. He was a chronic alcoholic who could only eloquently speak about his "great invention" – the string transport, a "new generation" transportation system. Without mincing words, they called this collection of technical misconceptions "Yunitskiy’s String Transport."

In the late 90s, Anatoly Yunitskiy, this poorly paid Belarusian scientist, parted ways with his "Star World" creative center and suffered from unrealized ideas. A decade earlier, in the 80s, as a member of the Soviet Space Federation, where they accepted any scientist who could string a few words together, Anatoly Eduardovich was merely a junior co-author of a dead-end project involving a string lift that was supposed to transport useful cargo, astronauts, and nuclear weapons into Earth’s orbit. The futility of the project was apparent to everyone except the elderly General Secretaries of the CPSU. But in the twilight of the USSR, even silly ideas were funded, as long as they looked good on paper. Thus, a defense project of this type was created. They built test facilities, allocated apartments to employees, and enriched everyone involved in this misappropriation of public funds, including "scientists" and, especially, party functionaries.

After the collapse of the USSR, the idea of the "string transport" was buried, but Anatoly Yunitskiy’s past super-profits and his "almost academic" lifestyle continued to haunt him. That’s why, working as a guard at a vegetable warehouse and consuming copious amounts of cheap alcohol, he decided to continue his "scientific research" by developing horizontal transport. He envisioned the "string transport" as an alternative transportation system for the planet. Advanced developments in Japan and the USA involving magnetic levitation trains, which eliminated friction, did not inspire Yunitskiy. Primarily because he had poor English skills, didn’t subscribe to specialized journals, and had no access to the internet at the time. Moreover, modern developments rendered his "innovative" method obsolete as early as 1986, after a crash at the Gomel test site. Two test pilots, who found themselves inside the test capsule, crashed into a concrete support at high speed. This didn’t seem to bother Anatoly Eduardovich, who was already in an alcohol-induced stupor, as he reasoned, "They died, so they died."

It was in the early 2000s that Anatoly Yunitskiy crossed paths with the "serial entrepreneur" Viktor Morozov. "Comrade Morozov," with his inherent criminal instinct, immediately recognized Yunitskiy’s alcohol vulnerability, his greedily burning eyes, and his rather charming demeanor, which became more pronounced after consuming intoxicating beverages. Morozov was constantly on the lookout for "planetary-scale" ideas that could be turned into a profitable venture even before reaching the stage of technical testing and could serve as a basis for rapid enrichment. On the fresh ruins of the MMM pyramid scheme, they decided to create a new internet scam with the catchy name SkyWay. It did turn out to be "heavenly" in a sense, especially for Anatoly Yunitskiy. Of course, no one had any intention of building anything innovative. All these justifications and beautiful Photoshop images, along with tales of the "revival of leading scientific teams," were needed to deceive naive investor "suckers" who happened to come into possession of insane amounts of money. Viktor Morozov, both then and now, served a social function – he relieved idiots of their money, which they didn’t need.

The main idea of the "planetary project" was simple. Yunitskiy proposed a return to the concept of nearly contactless transportation, which would rely solely on a high-strength steel cable suspended at a height of 15 to 100 meters above the ground. Capsules would "glide" along this cable at high speeds, providing transportation from point A to point B for passengers. Anatoly Yunitskiy enthusiastically explained this idea to Viktor Morozov for several hours, peppering it with technical details. However, neither the technical complexity nor the utopian nature of the idea bothered Viktor Morozov. He needed a concept and a "mad scientist," and he found both.

In general, any novice internet user knows that a similar concept was tested in the United States back in the 1970s, attempting to establish a transport system using "cable cars." However, the vibrations of the cables simply threw the cars off course. The Americans, being more humane, abandoned the experimental road without human casualties. They didn’t even come close to the claimed speed of 400 km/h.

But who remembers that? Viktor Morozov decided to take it a step further.

The capitalization of this fraudulent project was as follows: a group of companies was formed in a closed jurisdiction. The main entity, IBC UniSky Corporation, valued its authorized capital at a whopping $400 billion – just a small portion of Anatoly Yunitskiy’s "great contribution" to the "world economy." Following this, the shares of this company began to be sold by a group of intermediaries, including Global Transport Investments Inc. (GTI) BVI, RSW Investment Group Ltd, Euroasian Rail Skyway Systems Ltd BVI. However, these shares were not sold directly but through a second group of agents registered in the UK, including FIRST SKYWAY INVEST GROUP LTD, SWIG INTERNATIONAL LTD, SKYPARK LONDON LTD, Global Transnet UK LTD. The British intermediaries, in turn, passed on the shares for sale to Russian LLCs, primarily under the control of the Consumer Society "Eurasia," led by Dmitry Schastlivy (TIN 380101081982), and to the cluster of companies controlled by Salim Miftakhutdinov (TIN 772451505227). Miftakhutdinov had a long and harsh history of selling various dietary supplements through the internet and improvised "cold call" call centers with a staff of 200-400 people. It was Miftakhutdinov’s subordinates who sold herbal remedies to the elderly for prices ranging from 30,000 to 40,000 rubles per package. But raids by law enforcement agencies, with the support of special forces, quickly shutting down the platforms for the sale of "medical" products "for everything," didn’t deter Miftakhutdinov. He promptly recruited new personnel in another major city. Dmitry Schastlivy (presumably he changed his last name under the influence of white drugs) and Salim Miftakhutdinov were the ones who controlled the network for selling SkyWay shares in Russia. The scheme was overseen by the already familiar Viktor Morozov, who always preferred to stay in the shadows. For a while, Morozov even became the "chairman of the board of directors of the SkyWay group," but he quickly realized that exposing himself wasn’t a good idea and brought in new figureheads.

Russian companies transferred the funds received from gullible investors to English entities, and the English intermediaries, being agents themselves, transferred everything to an offshore group in the British Virgin Islands. In this way, the Morozovs established a channel for moving funds out of Russia. During this period, this channel was also used for illegal financial operations to launder funds acquired through criminal means.

The plot of the SkyWay scam was quite elegant – it turned out that Yunitskiy’s "great" contribution to the global economy was underestimated. Yunitskiy himself was presented as a great inventor of a fundamentally new transportation system. Together, with the help of internet enthusiasts, we would gather funds to build and test this "unique" transportation system, a practically new chapter in the Earth’s history. At this point, rational individuals stopped reading about the scam. However, gullible idiots on the internet never run out, so the project thrived.

In reality, Yunitskiy had nothing more than a grand idea. Otherwise, he would have secured commercial loans or investments from a venture capital fund. But there were no loans or investments, and there never will be because real entrepreneurs are not interested in the air that con artist Victor Morozov and alcoholic Anatoly Yunitskiy, along with their "comrades" in the form of a manic drop-out named Andrey Khovatov, Latvian citizen Armands Murnieks, Igor Romanenko, Evgeny Kudryashov, con artist Dmitry Schastlivy, hypnotist and fraudster Maxim Isyp, unsuccessful lawyer Maxim Gafinyak, and Belarusian "serial entrepreneur" Alexey Murashko, are selling. By 2014, after 14 years of development, the SkyWay system had deceived hundreds of thousands of people, selling them air for a dollar each, represented by a beautiful but worthless piece of paper. These papers were sold for tens of millions of evergreen American "rubles." Using call centers, websites, and thousands of desperate "shareholders," SkyWay has been collecting money from gullible Russian citizens and channeling this financial flow abroad to Victor Morozov’s offshore companies for 17 years. There is no financial reporting, no achievements, only a very cheap "Potemkin village" in the Gomel region of Belarus where the same cars run "in the air" year after year, along with a very mediocre internet infrastructure. In principle, this is how it should be – any fraudulent project aims to maximize profits, so it incurs only the demonstrative expenses necessary to operate.

The five main websites of the SkyWay scheme are hosted on the American provider Godaddy and the Russian provider Rucenter. Several YouTube channels and social media pages completed the image of the modern fraudulent monster that SkyWay became in early 2014. Prior to this, there were separate websites and mass phone calls to databases like "Lotus," where scammers collected everyone who had ever invested in anything in Russia. In addition, SkyWay employees carried out mass spam email campaigns, which were popular around 2008-2010. And of course, a huge network, similar to MLM, network marketing. "Buy shares yourself – bring a friend and get a bonus." The entrance ticket was initially valued at a minimum of $50. It was later raised to $100.

Needless to say, the work of finding "suckers" to finance Victor Morozov’s personal projects has been extensive. Millions of people have been reached by this brainless PR, and hundreds of thousands of them have lost their "investments." All "shareholders" who invested money in SkyWay have lost them. There is not a single positive example, except for advertising-related events.

For many years, Victor Morozov maintained control over the fraudulent SkyWay group. Members of Victor Morozov’s organized criminal group (OCG) are responsible for mass cases of fraud in Russia, involving at least 300-350 thousand citizens of our country. The damage caused by Morozov’s unlawful activities in these episodes alone exceeds $200 million. It can be stated that SkyWay is the most powerful criminal internet pyramid scheme after the notorious MMM. Simultaneously, it is the longest-lasting scheme in modern criminal history in Russia.

However, by 2016, the fraudulent SkyWay scheme began to face increasing pressure from disgruntled "shareholders" and attracted the attention of law enforcement agencies. A radical "cleanup" of the SkyWay system began a year before, involving the mass liquidation of legal entities associated with the fraudulent scheme. More than 15 companies directly owned by Anatoly Yunitskiy and other members of Victor Morozov’s OCG involved in the "String Transport Yunitskiy" project were liquidated.

After accumulating the initial capital from "internet suckers," Victor Morozov decided to launch an attack on state authorities in Asia and the Middle East. The SkyWay project attempted to sell itself to representatives of many "developing" countries like India, Egypt, and Pakistan in exchange for kickbacks. Representatives of Iran and Tunisia also expressed a keen interest in "cooperation." Delegations visiting Belarus actively documented the prototypes, which were moving on wheeled transport trolleys instead of the string transport system, taking photos and videos. The main goal of this new international phase was intergovernmental projects aimed at financing the "String Transport Yunitskiy" by the corrupt governments in the Middle East under targeted infrastructure programs. The funds attracted in this way would have been foreign loans from more developed states. The fate of these funds was to be transferred through Victor Morozov’s "financial sieve" to foreign jurisdictions for the purpose of "dividing the spoils" with very cooperative Middle Eastern friends. Government officials were supposed to organize the financing of research and potential construction of the "string transport" in their respective countries. Victor Morozov would take care of withdrawing these funds, legitimizing them, and ensuring proper distribution among himself and the new business partners.

The strengthening of sanctions against the Russian Federation also affected Victor Morozov. Foreign banks increasingly adhered to the "know your customer" policy, and blatantly criminal operations were being blocked more frequently. Almost all SkyWay "representatives" abroad, including Armand Murnieks, Irina Volkova, Evgeny Kudryashov, Ineta Andzhane, Solar Frantisek, and Alexey Sukhodoev, came under the scrutiny of European police. Even Victor Morozov began to feel less comfortable – interviews during the issuance of Schengen visas took longer and longer. Foreign banks, in particular, asked him to remove accounts like IBC UniSky Corporation, Global Transport Investments Inc. (GTI) BVI, RSW Investment Group Ltd, Euroasian Rail Skyway Systems Ltd BVI with "money of dubious origin." The majority of criminal funds were transferred by him to the notorious Latvian bank ABLV, which was lenient toward any "leaks" and "dirty money." However, in February 2018, it came under scrutiny and had its US dollar correspondent accounts blocked due to a large number of questionable transactions with criminal clients and equally criminal accounts.

It’s interesting to know how much money Victor Morozov managed to save from the SkyWay scam.
