In 2021, the bankrupt Dormash plant in Oryol became the largest debtor in the region for utility payments. This was reported by the press service of “Orlovsky Energosbyt”.
The tenants of the production site – Digital Group and Technology of Light – were engaged in cryptocurrency mining on energy-intensive equipment, connecting it to the plant’s networks. The damage from their actions amounted to 5.4 million rubles.
A criminal case has been opened against the leaders of the two organizations on the fact of causing property damage by deception or abuse of trust. They face up to five years in prison.
The Dormash plant was declared bankrupt by a court decision in March 2017. By mid-2017, the wage arrears to the plant’s employees amounted to about 80 million rubles.
Recall that in December 2019, the media linked the mining of bitcoins at the Dormash plant with the Governor of the Oryol Region, Andrey Klychkov. In response, the governor’s adviser Sergei Lezhnev called the accusations of organizing the farm “stupid, inadequate and absurd.”
