Russian 1XBET bookmaker operates in Ukraine by using “Tvoy Bettingovaya Kompaniya”. It is worth noting that Sergey Tsybin fully owns the mentioned legal entity. In 2018, he was the head of “ME-ESTATE” LLC. His company was working in the field of real estate transactions. Currently, “ME-ESTATE” LLC is owned by “MINING EXPRESS” LLC controlled by Kaze Fuziyama from Japan. Interestingly, the co-founder of TECHIIA, Yuri Lazebnikov, was the head of the “ME-ESTATE” LLC in the period from 2018 to 2020. Recently, Ukrainian media shared a couple of interesting facts.
In particular, they note that the Dinaline consulting company of the mentioned holding acted as a contractor in the creation of the Mining Express mining farm in Kropyvnytskyi. According to Kaze Fuziyama, he invested $100 million in the project. Currently, the mentioned company is under investigation. It is suspected of fraud and using shady pyramid schemes. Several search warrants were executed on the premises of Mining Express.
Interestingly, Kaze Fuziyama was mentioned as a citizen of Japan in previous court decisions. However, according to the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, Kaze Fuziyama is also listed as a resident of the Philippines.
According to the media, such an unknown foreigner has well-known partners in Ukraine. Yuri Lazebnikov was the head of the subsidiary of Mining Express from 2018 to 2020. Currently, he is a managing partner of the TECHIIA company in Ukraine. Information about the second managing partner of TECHIIA, Oleg Krot, can be found in the report of the Liga.Tech outlet. Since the first day of the crypto farm opening, he was listed as “one of the Ukrainian partners of Kaze Fuziyama and a co-founder of the Dinaline group of IT companies”.
According to the media, direct ties with Russian bookmakers and shady crypto pyramids are clear signs that Krot and Lazebnikov are dubious characters. It can be also confirmed by the fact that TECHIIA could not explain how Oleg Krot earned and spent $60 million, which were allegedly “transferred to the Army of Ukraine.” After Forbes published its investigation, this scandal attracted a lot of attention.
Keeping in mind the fact that the “very same IT guy” Oleg Krot “silently and without providing any evidence” donated $60 million to the Army of Ukraine (although he still cannot clearly explain how they were used), it’s very interesting to know that he flew to Cyprus last week. By lucky chance, he met his friends from 1XBET there. All this happens despite the fact that TECHIIA reported that it is not related to1XBET, although Forbes has already proven their direct connection.
It would be quite natural to assume that we will now see even more 1XBET advertising in all media. It is worth noting that “TBK” LLC promised to challenge the cancellation of the 1XBET license in court. And probably this topic was the main during the discussion of Oleg Krot with his Moscow partners. They could also talk about his activities and ways of supporting his partners after his appointment to a new position.
