Virtus Pro’s new management rests with Russian Govt. linked ESForce Holding

Change of guard.

Mass exodus of people from Virtus.Pro continues as the organization parts ways with it’s CEO Sergey Glamazda.

Sergey Glamazda’s exit marks the probable exit of the last standing liberal voice within the organization.

The change of guard now entirely rests in the hands of ESForce Holding, the parent company of Virtus.Pro, owned by VK.

The company stated that a “need of reorganizing and systematizing the workflow in Virtus.pro” was the best course to move foward, with the CEO position being made defunct.

VK is associated with having close ties to the Russian Government, and has been under the lens since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began.

We wish you best of luck and thank you for your work in VP! You will always be The Genius for The Bears ❤️

Ukrainian esports organizations and community across different gaming genres have voiced their outrage towards VK’s inability of condemning Russia’s action against Ukraine.

The same silence caused Virtus.Pro to be barred from competing at Gamers Galaxy: Dota 2 International Series Dubai 2022, BLAST Premier and the ESL Pro League.

They even got disqualified from the DPC EEU Tour 2 Playoffs due to Ivan “Pure” Moskalenko‘s drawing of the “Z” symbol on the minimap during an official game, signifying support towards Russia’s aggression.

VK was previously owned by Uzbek billionaire Alisher Usmanov, a close and long term ally of Vladimir Putin, before being bought by the state-run insurer Sogaz.

One of the shareholders of Sogaz includes banker Yuri Kovalchuk, publicly called as a close friend by Putin.
