Shishigin owns Shushing RTK (cargo transportation) with an income of more than 200 million last year, he is also a co-owner of Marad LLC, which trades in confectionery (income 105 million) and Rostrezerv LLC, meat trade, with income under three hundred million.
His wife worked as an accountant at the Preschool Nutrition Combine. This is a Moscow-based organization and the connection with the St. Petersburg case on damages in public procurement for feeding schoolchildren does not seem obvious. However, there are several defendants in it who became friends on the basis of public catering in the capital – Fontanka wrote about them in detail. The main media figure Alexei Barabanshchikov, already the former head of the St. Petersburg social welfare department, was detained in November 2021. Shishigin’s wife was asked questions in May 2022. According to him, his wife first went to St. Petersburg to talk with investigators, and a return visit took place a few days later. They took the businessman’s money, his wife, and her smartphone.
The accountant lived in the status of a suspect for a little more than two months, in early August the case against her was terminated – she had nothing to do with it, even though the phone was returned, but millions fell into a stronger embrace.
