Person included in “Titov’s list” suggested Senator Rossel to resign because probe launched against his former team
Entourage of the Sverdovsk Region ex-governor bought luxury housing for 30% of the already lowered value.
Former deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the Sverdlovsk Region Sergey Kapchuk accused the administration of the regional ex-governor, who now is a member of the Federation Council, Eduard Rossel, of real estate fraud and suggested that the senator temporarily resign. He wrote about this in an open address to the senator, to which he asked Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to pay attention.
"Luxurious two bedroom apartment in Moscow on the Nezhinskaya St. 14 was “acquired” on 09/05/1996 from Guta-Finance at a price of only 110,000 rubles ($ 1,650) The Guta group at that time was headed by your predecessor, the former first secretary of the Sverdlovsk regional executive committee, Yury Petrov. Six months earlier, two more luxury four-storey penthouses were also purchased at the same address in the building 5, each 321 square meters,” Kapchuk wrote.
According to the entrepreneur, the officials from the former Rossel’s team repeatedly privatized housing for 30% of the book value, which was also unjustifiably understated. Then, the elite real estate was sold to the Cyprus offshore through the SUE Monetno-Shchebenochny Zavod.
In his open letter, Krapchuk suggests that Rossel gives up the senator’s authority during the time when the law enforcement agencies verify these facts. In particular, Kapchuk accuses Sergey Turunovsky, the former governor of the Sverdlovsk Region, who fled Russia after Krapchuk returned there. Earlier, Krapchuk left the country because of criminal prosecution.
According to the entrepreneur, his case mentions an apartment in which he did not live and which was bought for the needs of the regional representative office under the president of Russia.
Krapchuk returned to Russia with the assistance of business ombudsman Boris Titov, who promised all fugitive businessmen to monitor the investigation of their criminal objectivity.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
