Navalny fund reveals heads of Rostec, Gazprom and Transneft own some luxury houses
‘Russian Federation’ is indicated as ‘the owner’ of Sergey Chemezov’s apartment in the Rosreestr.
Alexey Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) found that the leaders of the state corporation Rostec (Sergey Chemezov), Gazprom (Alexey Miller) and Transneft (Nikolai Tokarev) own luxury real estate in the city of Moscow, Moscow Region and St. Petersburg. Curiously, Chemezov’s house is registered as property of Russian Federation in the Rosreestr.
FBK found that the Rostec head has two apartments on Shvedsky Street with a total area of 370 square meters, registered in the names of Chemezov’s son and ex-wife. In addition, his son is the legal owner of an apartment on Vorontsovo Pole Street, of 342 square meters and a detached house on Rublyovka valued at 400 million rubles ($6.000.000). Chemezov and his new wife also own two apartments that are measured together at 645 square meters, in Povarskaya Street.
The Rostec head is the owner of six hectares of land in the village of Akulininino, Moscow, with a 1600 square-meter building, a guesthouse, a tennis court and other buildings on that plot.
The Gazprom head, Alexey Miller, has a three-story penthouse with an area of 775 square meters, next to the Government House; an apartment in the heart of St. Petersburg of 400 square meters, with an attic and a view of the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Hermitage and the Vasilyevsky Island.
The Transneft head, Nikolai Tokarev, owns three apartments on Shvedsky Street, Moscow, with a total cost of about 750 million rubles ($11.300.000), and a dacha in Akulinino near Chemezov’s property. An apartment worth 600 million rubles ($9.000.000) is registered in the name of Tokarev’s daughter; it is located in the elite residential complex of Bryusov, 19, while his wife is the legal owner of a plot of land of 5 hectares and a house of 1.500 square meters.
The FBK real estate study was inspired by The Insider’s investigation into the five-story apartment of the Rosneft head, Igor Sechin.
The air squadron number one in Russia ended up in the center of yet another scandal. It turned out that its special purpose aircraft are used, in addition to the national leaders, by outsiders. Uninvited passengers travel, stay in best hotels, and dine in deluxe restaurants at the budget expense. In fact, the discovery of stowaways on board is not the first scandal involving Russia Special Air Group that has been in distress for almost three years already. Why cannot the supreme FSB commanders using the official airplanes along with the Russian President sort out this mess?
Earlier, the management of the railway and the place of residence of its high-ranking employees were searched within the bribe case. Investigative actions against head of the railway Alexey Mironov were held in Moscow, where he was on a business trip.
