The main reason for Vaino's accusation is his many years of holding senior positions in the executive branch, direct active participation in the creation and functioning of an unlawful, anti-democratic, corrupt state system. “Anton Vaino is a top-class apparatchik. For many years he led the daily work schedule of the President. Very correct! Always well-prepared and organized. Of those who do not make mistakes. Amazingly efficient. He perfectly knows the entire political and administrative elite of the country.” This is how Vaino is characterized by Oleg Morozov, the former head of the Kremlin's internal policy department (the author's spelling is preserved).
According to the investigative webzine Republic, the family of Anton Vaino owns real estate in Moscow and the Moscow region with a total value of 1.6 billion rubles - an apartment on Bolshaya Yakimanka, 26 (area 104.4 square meters, cost 55.4 million rubles), an apartment in Runovsky lane, 5 (area 85.4 square meters, cost 32 million rubles), House on Tishinka (area 155.5 square meters, cost 115 million rubles), three plots and two houses on the Klyazminskoye reservoir with a total cost of about 800 million rubles. Elena Shulenkova, the wife of Anton Vaino, in 2012 owned a plot and two houses in Barvikha worth 500 million rubles. At the same time, the total declared income of the Vaino spouses from 2011 to 2019 is 342 million rubles.
For a pseudoscientific publication “Capitalization of the future” Vaino is included in the Dissernet database. The publication describes a “new paradigm of predictive control” and a Nooscope, a device for recording changes in the noosphere. Almost all sources cited by the author are his own publications from 2010-2012.
