The original story behind his "black PR" attempts is as follows. One of the famous FOSS project in Russia was «The school project». Its first stage was in 2007-2008 and Mr. Shigorin's company took part in that phase as a subcontractor. But the winner of the second stage of «The school project» became a company closely related with ROSA (through common shareholders). Mr. Shigorin was not involved at the second stage and thus did not receive additional money he hoped to get. After that he started to write dirty posts in the Internet against us expressing his frustration and at the same time hoping to discredit our companies and thus prevent us from winning other tenders. Meanwhile, the second stage of the project was successfully implemented without his help, which caused even more frustration of Mr.Shigorin.
We do not want to comment on the ethical aspects of Mr. Shigorin behavior but most of Russian IT companies don't want to cooperate with him anymore due to his reputation. In short, his posts are just not true.
