Crimean Head's income grows twofold
In 2016, Sergey Aksenov earned about 2.63 million rubles ($45.280), whereas his income a year earlier was 1.4 million rubles ($24.103).
The aggregate income of the head of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksenov in 2016 was just over 2.63 million rubles, which is about 87% higher than the result of 2015 (1.4 million rubles), as follows from the declaration of the head of the region published on the website of the Crimean government.
At the same time, the income of the Crimean head’s spouse increased almost ten-fold from the previous year, from 3,426 million rubles up to 32.836 million rubles.
Aksenov still does not own a car, and his wife, like a year earlier, owns the BMW 750 LI XDRIVE. In addition, the property of the spouse of the head of Crimea includes three apartments with an area of 81.9 sq. m., 66.3 sq. m. and 30.6 sq. m. and six non-residential premises. Within the year, the list of real estate owned by Aksenov’s wife replenished with one non-residential building with an area of 36.3 sq. m.
The largest revenue in 2016 among the Crimean ministers was earned by Vice-Premier of the regional Government Boris Zimin, who until February 2017 headed the company Nortgaz. Zimin’s total income in 2016 exceeded 14.3 million rubles.
In addition, Zimin was also the largest landowner in the government of the Crimea. Judging by the declaration, he owns, including on shares with other owners, 122 land plots with a total area of approximately 266 thousand sq. m.
The income of Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2016 was 8.9 million rubles, and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev earned 8.6 million rubles.
The highest personal income of members of the Russian government in 2016 belongs to the Minister for North Caucasus Affairs, Lev Kuznetsov, as evidenced by the declarations published on the website of the Cabinet. In 2016, he earned 582.1 million rubles which is 12 times more than a year earlier.
In Kabardino-Balkaria, an officer of Rospotrebnadzor (Federal Service on Customers' Rights Protection and Human Well-being Surveillance) had received a bribe for protection. The businessman, who had given the bribe, has turned to police.
In the last two years, the management of SK Balt-Stroy Limited Liability Company was involved into two criminal cases pertaining to embezzlements in the Ministry of Culture (Restorers’ case) and embezzlements during the construction of Vladimir Putin’s residence in Novo-Ogarevo. However, this hasn’t affected the company’s business affairs in any way. Governmental contracts with SK Balt-Stroy are extended on a regular basis. Structures affiliated with the company have been recently awarded a contract to restore the Kremlin towers. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why do the disreputable restorers still continue working in the Kremlin?
