Breaking news: The publisher of the Russian news magazine "Echo News Week" keeps providing public, informational support  to the Arizona Russian Center, and facilitating unlawful collection, as a "charitable corporation", of donations-money from the Russian and other local businesses despite of the fact that I had notified him via-email and a link regarding the dissolving of the RCA had also been send to his business e-mail address.


In May of 2011 the Arizona Corporation Commission administratively dissolved  and put out of business the  Arizona Russian Center (ARC) - a NON-PROFIT, CHARITABLE CORPORATION.
Ms. Olga Chaikheeva and Artt Smasch FRAUDULENTLY reinstated (highjacked) one of the earlier admin. dissolved corporations, changed the name and purpose but kept the tax-exempt status of the former well established corporation. 

Being administratively dissolved means the corporation involuntarily gives up its right to do business in Arizona as a corporation.

Please note: some other their organizations have come to life in exactly same way. 

For almost more than a year they had kept a very low profile and then, suddenly, have come out of the darkness and accelerated their business by being very visible and noisy.  They know they cannot conduct business legally; they want to do it, it’s their decision to do so.
The problem is that many people and organizations don’t know or don’t believe that the Arizona Russian Center can’t do its business legally. As illegally operating non-profit charitable corporation, they are soliciting donations and money from local businesses.

Unfortunately, there are people and businesses who knowingly support and protect the leadership and the structure of the ARC – entity that is fraudulently and unlawfully conducting its operations not just in the USA, in the Russian Federation as well.
Knowing the truth, people could make up their minds whether to give money or not to ARC, protect or not protect them,  be or not be their sponsor, provide or not provide public and informational support to them.

On the other hand, there are “free” Russian newspapers like Echo News Week (published in San Diego,  California) that do business with the dissolved organization; I am wondering if money or other financial and other incentives have been involved.  Letting the ARC publish their own articles and adds in the newspaper, the “free” news magazine Echo News Week is a demonstration of public support and facilitating of collecting of unlawful donations by the Arizona Russian Center from local businesses and people.
There is also a website called the Arizona Russian News run by Andy (Andrew, Andrei) Conovaloff ( a volunteer!? for ARC and Shield Foundation) that provides a lot of public support to Ms. Olga Chaikheeva, her partners and organizations, especially scandalously known – Shield Foundation. The site looks like a professionally run news agency. It really looks very good but It is not a news organization; it is a personal site opened and run by Mr. Andy.  It is a well managed website but... it has been often used to slender, harass, abuse and Cyber-bullying people like whose only guilt is - telling the truth to the people and communities about people named above and their "best practices."  He publishes (perhaps writes for some pay or benefits) anonymously written FALSE and Slanderous articles.  Despite of the fact that character defaming postings contain a lot of personal info on other people, Mr.  "Arizona Russian News" doesn’t even provide his last name on the front page.  Please, try to think, why? 
I, for instance, don't hide my name because I am a clean person and proud of my name and my contributions to our communities. 

These people have worked very hard  to destroy me and my character by: 
  • Unsuccessfully suing me several  times, 
  • Intimidating me by posting abusive and slanderous articles
  • Threatening me by filing false police report connecting me to the "burglary" of their office (they still almost 4 years after, submitted no list of items stolen from the office!?), 
  • Attempting to create problems at work by sending police to school I work at, 
  • Spreading rumors and gossips among the Russian-speaking people that I fight all the Russians in AZ because I "have a grudge against the Shield Foundation" and more...
They want to zip up my mouth and stop me educating and enlightening people; IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
They can and probably will try to physically KILL me or put behind the bars by framing me up ( they have a good experience of doing this) but will not  to take away my right to the Freedom of Speech.

The main purpose of this and other articles is to educate, inform, and enlighten people by presenting accurate, creditable, and reliable information on con-artists in our community based on true facts and legal documents. 

I am giving no advice to any one. However, I am making a strong statement that I will continue bringing up to the public eye people, organizations, businesses directly and/or indirectly associated with the ARC, its leadership and many other organizations opened by same people using third party names or even fictitious names of people who may not even exist.

There is a wise, old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
That’s why I am adding to the article a few important documents that speak for themselves.  

Don’t be too naive and trustworthy, Be Knowledgeable and Smart.
