Assisting Refugees

WALL STREET JOURNAL
FEB. 7, 2017

"Last year, President Barack Obama asked American companies to play a bigger role in helping resettle men and women after raising the number of refugees the U.S. would accept in fiscal 2017 to 110,000. More than 50 employers, most of which remain in the partnership, responded with commitments to boost such investment, members said. The companies are paying for their own initiatives, and agreed to proceed with or without government backing, said Alex Konanykhin, chief executive of KMGi Group, a software company and maker of a tool that allows companies to monitor the work of remote employees, who was present at the meeting. This week, a unit of KMGi plans to launch a staffing service for refugees that allows them to create professional online profiles and connect with employers."

Mr. Konanykhin was a whiz-kid physics student who became a pioneering Russian capitalist in early 1990s, building a banking and investment empire valued at an estimated $300 million all by his mid-20s. He was a member of President Boris Yeltsin's inner circle.

One of the first bankers in Russia, pioneer of business.
CBS "60 Minutes":
Alex Konanykhin didn't only have KGB after him… He had the FBI, the Justice Department, even the CIA all on his case, as a favor to the Russians, part of a deal to allow the FBI to keep a bureau in Moscow.
Los Angeles Daily Journal:
Representing himself through much of the process, Konanykhin managed to convince an immigration judge of an alleged INS and KGB conspiracy and cover-up. Following the court's admonishment, the INS agreed to drop all charges and also pay $100,000..The judge also ordered an investigation of the Justice Department. In separate actions, Konanykhine subsequently won multimillion dollar libel judgments against two Russian newspapers. A $100 million lawsuit against the Justice Department is pending, alleging perjury, fraud, torture and witness tampering by U.S government officers on behalf of the Russian Mafia.
Profit Magazine:
Imagine you are a teenage physics genius who quickly amasses a $300 million empire of real estate and banking ventures, has dozens of cars, six hundred employees, several mansions and two hundred bodyguards—but you are nonetheless kidnapped by those you trusted, threatened with torture and death, and have your entire empire stolen from you one dark night in Budapest. You escape with your life by racing through Eastern-block countries and flying to New York on stashed-away passports—only to have the KGB and Russian Mafia hell-bent on your hide and the U.S. government jailing you and conspiring to serve you up into their clutches. All this before your 29th birthday. Sound like a Tom Clancy thriller? No. . . just a slice in the life of Alexander Konanykhine.
