Although his “First Accumulator Company” (PAK) occupied a significant share in the Belarusian market, and the group of companies 1AK-GROUP built plants. The entrepreneur gained fame in connection with the construction of the IPower plant in Brest, which was accompanied by the weekly protests of the local activists.

On June 14, the Brest regional executive committee published on its website an order of Governor Lis to suspend the construction of the battery plant “until the elimination of the revealed violations”. On June 17, the Regional Committee for Natural Resources and Environmental Protection suspended the plant’s permission to release pollutants into the atmosphere. On June 25, 1AK-GROUP made a statement about the importance of the plant for the country.
