Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 218 – Brother Ki is here again
Kirilenko had called to inform that the technology which the Motor Factory wanted was ready and he will be bringing the information over personally.
Kirilenko coming over for this measly sum? Stop joking. It might be possible 2 years ago. The Kirilenko now was already a successful businessman. Would he care about this small amount?
Although the information was not cheap Kirilenko’s cost was high, and his profits were only a few hundred thousand Rubles. Feng Yu could guess the purpose of his visit. He should be coming over to discuss the Soviet Union political affairs.
Feng Yu had told him his predictions, and the predictions slowly became true. For example, President Mikhail Gorbachev and Yeltsin, Lithuania’s independence, and the relationship between both Germany. Talks had begun between both Germany and unification should happen before the end of the year.
Kirilenko’s father Senchenko had secretly pledged his loyalty to Yeltsin. He was a Logistics Officer in the Army and could provide Yeltsin lots of support. For instance, he could decide the number of supplies which troops receive. He could even stop the supplies to certain forces. This significantly affects the military power between both factions.
His father had made his decision, and the rest was up to Yeltsin. Kirilenko also wanted to speak to Feng Yu and seek his views.
Feng Yu was a businessman, and Kirilenko was his trading partner. If Kirilenko’s family rose in status and had more authority in the Soviet Union, Feng Yu’s trading business would become better. Because of this reason, Kirilenko and his father knew that they and Feng Yu shared the same interest.
Kirilenko now regrets that he had introduced the other Soviet Union 2nd generations to Feng Yu. If his family failed, Feng Yu could still work with the other 2nd generations. After all, Feng Yu could pay in full for every trade, and this was better than the 2nd generations other partners.
Feng Yu had the upper hand, and the consequences were small if he were to ditch Kirilenko.
Kirilenko coming over to find Feng Yu was not only to listen to Feng Yu’s analysis of the Soviet Union’s affairs and also to foster a closer friendship.
Feng Yu was standing outside the airport and saw Kirilenko waving to him. Kirilenko had brought along a follower, and he was carrying 4 large luggage behind him.
Almost all the luggage contains the technical information and their personal belongings only take up half luggage.
After a warm hug, Feng Yu hurriedly push Kirilenko away. This guy’s strength was no joke. He could strangle someone with his embrace.
“Brother Ki, let’s send the information to the customer, and we can have a chat later.”
“Of course. But tonight, you must drink with me. Ask Li along.” Kirilenko only knew two people in Bing City and the second person was Li Shiqiang.
“Brother Ki, my brother-in-law is not free. My sister will be giving birth anytime this week, so……”
“Ah…… Congratulations. It’s fine then. I had brought some gifts for him too. Tomorrow let’s visit your sister at the hospital.”
Soviets love to receive and give gifts. Kirilenko was here to foster friendships, and he did not come empty-handed. He knew that Li Shiqiang was Feng Yu’s brother-in-law and if he could form a close relationship with Li Shiqiang, Li Shiqiang could help him if needed.
The Motor Factory’s chief engineer and his staffs were going through the information. They were mainly checking if there were any missing information. They were not worried if the information was false. Feng Yu had promised them that he would compensate them double the amount if the data were fake.
Feng Yu believed that Kirilenko would not cheat him because of such measly sum. This would cause discord between them and would affect their future business deals. Li Shiyou also trusted Feng Yu would not cheat him. He was not someone to mess with.
The documents were checked, and some minor details could not be verified. It still requires some time.
“Manager Feng, the documents are all here. We will sign off and notify the bank to transfer you the payment. You said that there will be experts from the Soviet Union. Where are they? With only these information, it will be tough for us to digest it.”
“The experts will be arriving next week. They will be coming in as a group. Some of them are for your factory, Aviation Factory, Machinery Company, Beer factory, etc. I will send them over.”
Feng Yu was satisfied. He had successfully recruited more Soviet experts. The experts had over 20 years of experience, and they were worth a lot of money. If Feng Yu was evil, he could sign an employment contract with these experts and charged the factories consultation fees for their services.
But Feng Yu was not interested in earning this small amount of money. He rather let those factories owe him favors. In this era, favors were worth much more than money.
After refusing Li Shiyou’s invitation to dinner politely, Feng Yu sent Kirilenko to the International Hotel.
In the past, the International Hotel’s Manager Yu Chunyuan had chased Feng Yu away from the hotel because Feng Yu was exchanging foreign currencies there. But 2 years later, Feng Yu was a big boss, and Yu Chunyuan came out to the driveway and opened his car door personally.
He had witnessed the Feng’s family connections during Feng Yu’s sister wedding. Yu Chunyuan was only a small manager at a State-owned hotel and couldn’t even be compared to the guests invited by Feng Yu.
Feng Yu had asked his staff to call the hotel beforehand, and Yu Chunyuan had made arrangements for the room and restaurant’s reservations.
Although there were only 2 people for dinner, Yu Chunyuan prepared a private room. He knew that Feng Yu would not order lesser dishes than other private rooms.
After some wine, Kirilenko asked softly: “Feng, my father is now under Yeltsin. Are you sure this will be an opportunity?”
Feng Yu smiled: “Brother Ki, you have already decided to believe me and why are you still asking? But I still need to remind you that Yeltsin might be assassinated and if he dies, it will not be a good thing for your father.”
“Assassination?” Kirilenko was shocked. Feng Yu had never told him about this. Could it be that someone wants to start a military coup?
If someone were to start a military coup, the one being assassinated should be President Mikhail Gorbachev. Why was Yeltsin being targeted?
Thinking about this, Kirilenko broke out in cold sweat. If it was as what Feng Yu had said, his father had joined Yeltsin’s faction and temporarily no one knew about this. But sooner or later, people would find out. If Yeltsin were killed, then his father would be in deep trouble!
“Brother Ki, Calm down. Yeltsin should be aware of this. He should not be in any danger if he takes precautions. Your father is in charge of the logistics, and if he provides more supplies to Yeltsin’s faction, it will be the best support for him. Once Yeltsin came into power, your father will be rewarded.”
In history, the opposition parties do not agree to assassinate Yeltsin and only agree to put him under house arrest. This was also the reason why Yeltsin became successful in controlling Russia and also receive over 90% of the Soviet Union’s overseas assets. This resulted in Russia continues to be one of the strongest nations in the world!
Kirilenko thought for a while and asked: “Feng, you have lots of ideas. Which path should I take for my future development?”
