For the first time Danil Khachaturov got to sphere of interests of large mass-media in 2003 when he was the only one of representatives of large insurance business in Russia who made the political statement addressed personally to the chairman of the government Mikhail Kasyanov with the request to change the antimonopoly law. It did not let "Rosgosstrakh" enter the market of obligatory kinds of the insurance financed at the state expense. Then “Rosgosstrakh” was not allowed to participate in tenders for insurers which were held by the ministries and departments for insurance of the needs at the state expense. The reason was the structure of "Rosgosstrakh" and law statements. "Rosgosstrakh" consisted of OAO "Rosgosstrakh" (an authorized capital stock of 162 million rubles.) and a number of affiliated Open Companies. The cumulative capital of "Rosgosstrakh" system made 985.7 million rubles. However, according to the statements of laws on competition protection, the insurer, submitting documents on tenders, couldn't show the cumulative capital of the system consisting of different legal entities.
It’s difficult to understand, what "Rosgosstrakh" expected for, addressing to the head of the government. Even in case of approval of its offers modification of laws is a long process, and not everything in it depends on the government. It is interesting that none of the governmental departments supported the initiative of Khachaturov.

In December, 2003 Khachaturov initiated large scandal in Eastern Siberia. At press conference in Omsk Khachaturov accused the local company «Russian insurance traditions» of refusal of payments. Top-managers of "Rosgosstrakh" arrived to Omsk with the check of the work of the local branch on motor third-party liability (MTPL) which ended up with public charges to another insurance company.
The given statement of Khachaturov was interpreted as competition display in the insurance market in Omsk – «Russian insurance traditions» was then the strong contender for "Rosgosstrakh" in that region. In business environment this statement caused bewilderment.

Together with the president of a group of companies OAO "Rosgosstrakh" (RGS) Danil Khachaturov he signed the agreement in which cooperation in the medical insurance market was defined as one of priority directions.

In November, 2007 Danil Khachaturov appeared in the center of loud family scandal. His former wife Anna submitted the claim about property division. They divorced in August even, and Anna Khachaturova applied for half of actives of the husband which magazine Forbes estimated in $1.3 billion. In the claim she asked to recognize 50 % of City savings and loan association (GIB) as belonging to her and, according to her lawyer, further intended to demand division of shares of "Rosgosstrakh". According to lawyers, absence of the marriage contract and the agreement of lawsuit of spouses gave her a fair shake.
Thus Anna Khachaturov declared that Danil refused to discuss issues of definition of property shares acquired during marriage. Moreover, according to Anna, he hid from her the information, concerning property. In the claim it was said that during marriage mister Khachaturov got the share in OOO "Rinocenter" which was the unique founder of OOO GIB.
"I know that my former spouse tried to sell GIB, - the claim said, — after our marriage is broken up, the respondent in every possible way tries to hide the property from me, and all documents confirming its presence, are hidden as well".
It was informed that at the moment of scandal GIB already was sold to the company «Morgan Stanley» for approximately $200 million, the transaction took place in the spring, 2007. As a matter of fact, after that the former wife of mister Khachaturov could apply only for the money received by her husband as a result of the transaction.

In February, 2008 following the results of session of the government the deputy minister of finance Sergey Shatalov made the statement that in 2008 the state could already lower the share in OAO «Rosgosstrakh» (then 25 % plus four shares) to zero. Mister Shatalov refused to discover, how it was going to happen.
At that point in time holding RGS included OAO "Rosgosstrakh", 10 affiliated insurance companies, 76 branches and about 3 thousand divisions all over the country. Staff was over 97 thousand persons. Clients accounted 20 million citizens, about 200 thousand enterprises, 1.5 million legal entities. The blocking share holding (25 % plus four shares) of OAO «Rosgosstrakh» was the state property. The others (75 % minus four shares), by data for January, 1st, 2006, belonged to OOO "RGS-CAPITAL". According to bases of Unified State Register of Legal Entities and SPARK, "RGS-CAPITAL" belonged on 0,5 % to the head of "Rosgosstrakh" Danil Khachaturov. 99 % of "RGS-CAPITAL" belonged to OOO "Olymp-finance" owned for 100 % by the younger brother of the head of "Rosgosstrakh" Sergey Khachaturov. Following the results of 2006 system RSG collected, according to Rosstrakhnadzor, 61.4 billion rubles.
The news announced by mister Shatalov was unexpected for the market. Presence of "Rosgosstrakh" in the list of the strategic enterprises interfered to its privatization; for any operations with a state block of shares it was necessary to exclude it from the list by the decree of the president.
One more possible way of privatization of the insurer was additional issue of the shares in which the state would not take part.
It was noticed that actually it was the beginning of process of getting control by Khachaturov over "Rosgosstrakh".

"It is amusing, I do not know anything about it, as well as Anna, — Irina Ponomareva declared. — I congratulate our justice that it was possible to create precedent when the squire managed to make decision without complainant present. I’m puzzled, for what purpose Khachaturov shows his readiness to show his financial and administrative resource all over the country …»
