Family of Sobyanin’s deputy responsible for elections has property worth $101.4mn
The family of Natalya Sergunina owns five residences in the center of Moscow, several apartments, and eight elite cars.
The Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) has found property worth 6.5 billion rubles ($101.4mn) owned by First Deputy Mayor of Moscow, Natalya Sergunina. Sergunina is said to be responsible for the election campaigns in Moscow.
According to FBK, Sergunina’s family owns five mansions in the center of Moscow, one building, and 40% of the Oktyabr cinema. The authors of the investigation report that all this was bought from the Moscow authorities “for nothing.” The property is registered in the offshore company of her sister's husband, Lazar Safaniev. Safaniev’s British company owns property worth 10.5 million pounds, while his Austrian company owns a house in Vienna worth 2 million euros.
Sergunina’s sister owns premises worth 470 million rubles ($7.33mn) in the residential complex Legendy Tsvetnogo, as well as an apartment worth 68 million rubles ($1mn) in the residential complex Neskuchny Sad. The investigation authors also say that the official’s father owns an apartment in the Gorod Stolits tower worth 215 million rubles ($3.35mn), and his mother owns a penthouse worth 180 million rubles ($2.81mn).
In addition, Sergunina’s relatives own eight Mercedes cars: two belong to the deputy mayor’s mother, one to her father, two to her sister, and three to her sister’s husband.
In the declaration of Natalya Sergunina, it is indicated that she owns a share in the 74-meter apartment and a land area of 2100 square meters. The Anti-Corruption Foundation calls her ‘the poorest city hall official.’
