Son-in-law of Transbaikal ex-minister found to be associated with thief in law
The Vechorka newspaper published a picture showing the son-in-law of the ex-Minister of Territorial Development, Anatoly Seregin, posing in the company of Takhi, a thief in law, and two crime lords.
According to the publication, the utmost left in this picture is Yevgeny Goncharov, known as Zhenya Bolshoy, the son-in-law of the former Territorial Development Minister Anatoly Seregin. Seregin left his post in 2010 after several scandals. In September 2010, the head of the region, Ravil Geniatulin, removed the minister from office, and in December a criminal case was initiated against him under Part 1 of Art. 293 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (improper performance by an official of his duties due to the negligent attitude to the service, resulting in major damage). Due to the fault of the minister, Transbaikal budget had to pay 12.5 million rubles ($180,000) for three bulldozers, but never received them. In 2016, Seregin received the post of chief engineer in the Sluzhba Zakazchika (Customer Service), and in March 2018 Seregin was appointed deputy director of the construction company Attol.
Next to him in the picture is the thief in law Georgy Uglava, known as Takhi, until recently the underboss for the Transbaikal.
Second from right – Vyacheslav Ivanov (Slava Chitinsky) – Takhi’s close ally and enemy of the Osinovsky organized criminal group. Ivanov was killed in his yard by the leader of the organized criminal group Mecenatovskiye, Dmitry Vedernikov in 2005. Dzhonik, the right-hand man of Takhi, who shared the post of underboss for Chita with Fyodor Titov, closes the row of criminal authority.
At present, according to sources of Vechorka, Seregin intends to occupy one of the high posts in the Ministry of Territorial Development of the Transbaikal.
Recall that the thief in law Georgy Uglava is currently serving a term on charges of extortion of 400,000 rubles ($5,800) from one of the entrepreneurs of Chita. In 2017, the Zabaikalsky Regional Court sentenced him to 3.5 years in a general regime colony. In September 2018, in relation to the thief in law Georgy Uglava a criminal case under part 4 of Art. 210 of the Russian Criminal Code (Organization of the criminal community, committed by a person occupying a higher position in the criminal hierarchy) was transferred to court. In addition, he is accused of robbery, extortion, car theft and theft on a particularly large scale.
Seventeen Russian Governors are facing criminal prosecution for bribe-taking. The rest of them may be jailed any time for exceedance of official powers. At least, Nezygar (@russica2) Telegram channel claims so citing an unidentified source in the law enforcement structures. However, according to that source, it is currently prohibited to prosecute top-level officials. In 2018, the operatives had only searched offices of Vice Governors or Deputy Ministers – not their bosses. The CrimeRussia found out what supreme functionaries are on the hook of the law enforcement authorities and may be immediately indicted if the President orders so.
