On the eve of appointment as GUEBiPK Head Kurnosenko got rid of 100 million rubles property
The Colonel Zakharchenko was not the only underground millionaire in the Main Department of Economic Security and Anti-Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation.
The sensational detention of the Acting Head of the Department T of the GUEBiPK Dmitry Zakharchenko in early September caused a large-scale check at the police department, where the Colonel had served last 10 years.
According to Life, the size of the seized from Zakharchenko amount gave investigators a reason to believe that the Colonel did not act alone and he had accomplices in the Department. Questions arose to the General Andrey Kurnosenko during the check, conducted by FSB officers in GUEBiPK. He was the first person in the chech-list.
While checking, Kurnosenko was found assets worth hundreds of millions rubles. Until recently, he was the owner of luxury villas and plots of land in the Istra and Krasnogorsk district of the Moscow region with total area of 5 sq. m and cost about 160 million rubles.
According to the operative data, the biggest area of 1.5 thousand sq. m, which is worth at least 10 million rubles, Kurnosenko had in the Turov village in the Istra district. In the same village to Kurnosenko two more plots and house belonged. However, before his appointment as the Head of the GUEBiPK, Kurnosenko sold most, Life reported.
Kurnosenko’s house and land plots were sold to the family of the Krasnogorsk district Deputy Katerina Severinova for the month prior to the appointment him as the Head of the GUEBiPK (late 2015). Intelligence agencies believe that the deal amounted to no less than 100 million rubles.
It is noteworthy that the Deputy did not know the name of the seller, because the property was bought through an agency.
In addition to the site area of 1.5 thousand sq. m in the Turovo village the General Kurnosenko had a two-storey house in the suburban Krasnogorochka village, which, together with the land plot, is estimated at 50 million rubles.
The General will have to explain the investigation, on what money the police officer could buy such a luxury real estate.
In the income declaration Kurnosenko family did not indicate such wealth. According to the documents, in 2015 Kurnosenko owned two plots of land area of 1.5 thousand sq. m and 610 sq. m, a house with area of 192 square meters and a garage. In use at Kurnosenko there are two apartments on 117 and 64 square meters and outbuildings. The General has no cars, his annual income is about 2 million rubles. Data for previous years, noted the sources in law enforcement agencies, did not especially differ from 2015 one.
In addition, the FSB doubt that on the day of Zakharchenko detention the General Kurnosenko was in business trip abroad. About the upcoming arrest former colleagues from the Main BIA could him denounce, where the General previously worked.
Therefore, the BIA of the Ministry of Internal Affairs officers suspended from investigation due to loss of confidence - too often secret information on planned operations flowed.
On September 9th, Kurnosenko wrote the resignation to the Interior Minister Kolokoltsev, but it has not been signed. His fate will be decided on the basis of the check, but according to the source data of the CrimeRussia, he will retain his position.
Andrey Kurnosenko is not the only officer of the GUEBiPK Ministry of Internal Affairs, to whom questions arose. In particular, the check established that the Head of the Department F of the GUEBiPK of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Dmitry Katkov is not specified in his declaration of income the property outside Russia.
The retired security official and two of his subordinates are suspected of an attempt to receive 31.5 million rubles ($470,610) from a construction company for its participation in the corporation’s tender.
Early in August, criminal ‘authority’ Yuri Esin a.k.a. Samosval (Dump Truck) has been detained in Moscow. In the 1990s he had a reputation of the ‘godfather’ of ‘Russian mafia’ in Italy and faced 75 years behind bars. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how could the 67-year-old criminal ‘authority’ having close ties with many thieves-in-law escape the Italian justice 20 years ago and avoid any issues with the Russian law enforcement authorities up until his recent arrest.
