A former employee of SkyWay Technologies Co., who was fired in 2016, has recently addressed a journalist of the informational portal Tut.by, and said that SkyWay shares had disappeared from his personal account (in Russian) at SkyWay’s website. The reason for his dismissal was the fact that, being a high-ranking engineer, he made serious design errors, which led to disruption of the work schedule at the test site and caused substantial material damage. Due to the mistakes made by this employee, the timing of tests with string transport on the semi-rigid route was broken, the backlog was about six months. Other Company’s engineers had to work overtime to eliminate the consequences of the error.

In addition, the initiator of the incentive program for SkyWay transport supporters, SkyWay General designer Anatoly Yunitskiy has ordered that the employee be deprived of those project shares that were received by him as gratitude for his previous work in the Company ― too much damage was caused by his actions.

Anatoly Yunitskiy personally takes decisions both on the reward with options and on their deprivation in the event of causing harm to the program by a participant. Deprivation is an extreme measure that affects only those people who have harmed the project, and extends only to options received free of charge; other former or current SkyWay supporters retain them in full.

During the existence of SkyWay Technologies Co., the Company broke up with more than 300 employees in total for various reasons, while during the same 4-year period the number of employees increased up to 700 people. The management of SkyWay project engineering Company treats the issue of staff recruiting responsibly and poses high requirements to existing employees. The performance of the work depends directly on the creative and professional abilities of the Company’s engineers, therefore the attention to the quality of personnel is very close.

A lawsuit will be filed against the former Company’s employee who, in violation of the confidentiality agreement, began to distribute information about the project that was uncoordinated with SkyWay Technologies. His behavior only confirmed the correctness of the decision taken by the management.

Here is the full text of the SkyWay information service response to the tut.by portal:


We clarified in the personnel Department the information about the person who wrote to you. Pavel Vladyko actually worked at SkyWay Technologies Co. until December 2016, however, he made serious design errors that led to disruption of the work schedule at the test facility and caused substantial material damage. This was the reason for his dismissal, although he was formally dismissed by agreement of the parties ― the Company did not want to aggravate the material damage with image losses.

We specified the issue regarding the shares that were displayed at Pavel’s personal account with Anatoly Yunitskiy. He told that Pavel was expelled from the incentive program for SkyWay supporters. This program assumes that the most active project’s participants are awarded with options ― reserved shares owned by the foreign company UniSky, which they can get at their disposal, provided their work benefits the development of SkyWay transport. The initiator of this program is the author of the SkyWay transport concept and the beneficiary of UniSky, SkyWay General designer Anatoly Yunitskiy. He personally takes decisions both on the reward with options and on their deprivation in the event of causing harm to the program by a participant. Deprivation is an extreme measure that affects only those people who have harmed the project, and extends only to options received free of charge; other former or current SkyWay supporters retain them in full.

SkyWay Technologies Co. has no relation neither to investment activity nor to the incentive program, from which Pavel was excluded ― it distributes the shares owned by UniSky, and not only employees of SkyWay Technologies Co. can be recipients. For example, authors of the names for innovative transport modules from the SkyWay supporters community or winners of various contests initiated by SkyWay Group of Companies and engineer Anatoly Yunitskiy received their incentive options.

Naturally, Pavel Vladyko cannot count on any compensation, and, moreover, the Company will soon prepare a lawsuit against him and start a court proceeding, since we know that it was he who provided false information about the Company to the Internet portal Onliner, which caused a reputational damage to the project, in addition to the material damage, in connection with which he was fired.

Anatoly Yunitskiy also pointed out, “It is possible that for his slander Pavel received a reward from Onliner, which has distinguished over the past two years with a whole series of negative and fake articles both in my address and in the address of SkyWay Technologies Co. But, apparently, this did not seem enough to him, then he addressed you, in Tut.by, knowing that you wrote negative articles about string technologies. Since this unscrupulous employee caused such a substantial damage to the project (its consequences have not been completely eliminated so far), the Company intends to initiate a criminal case against him in order to compensate for the material damage caused to SkyWay Technologies Co. and investors of the project. Pavel Vladyko is not one of them.

The Belarusian yellow press copes with its task successfully: to sow dislike and even hatred of everything Belarusian, including innovations and innovators, especially if they are ahead of the whole world. To verify this, it suffices to read the numerous comments to the publications in the same Onliner about Skyway. It is not by chance that Onliner published a next libel about us on September 18 of this year on the opening day of the International Exhibition InnoTrans-2018 in Berlin. SkyWay Technologies has exhibited there for the first time a unique car a high-speed unibus that can reach the speed of 500 km/h and ride, for example, the distance between Minsk and Moscow in less than 1.5 hours. Do you think it was the Belarusian television that gave a report about it? No – Japanese. [http://rsw-systems.com/news/japan-tv]. And it impressed the Japanese so much that it is today, on November 15, when a film crew from Tokyo television came to us in SkyWay Technologies Co. to shoot a report from the scene in the Company’s office, at its innovative production facility in Minsk and at EcoTechnoPark in Maryina Gorka ― at the operating innovative Center for demonstration and certification of the breakthrough transport technology SkyWay transport”.

The Company’s lawyers also commented on the situation and noted that Pavel had violated the confidentiality agreement he had signed. It reads that during its validity term and indefinite period after termination, the signatory undertakes not to make public statements about the Company, especially false and slanderous ones, without prior permission and approval of the text of speeches or statements. For that, by the way, punishment is also provided, up to the criminal one, within the framework of the Belarusian legislation.

It is important to underline that Pavel Vladyko is not an investor of the project and did not invest his personal funds in its development. The shares were reserved on the basis of an oral agreement, the terms of which were violated by him. Unlike the situation with Vladyko, the reserved shares of real investors cannot be alienated without good reasons ― this is recorded in the documents governing the process of acquiring investment shares in the SkyWay project.

As they told us in the technical support service, if the investment shares acquired are no longer displayed to investors in the personal account, they can be advised to contact technical support (it is located outside of Belarus and SkyWay Technologies Co. has no relation to it) ― most likely such problems are caused by temporary technical failures in the operation of the automated system or inaccuracies in filling out the documentation. Technical support staff will try to help to understand the situation and solve the problem quickly.
