Shuvalov's ten apartments were repaired using budget funds
The lawyer of the Anti-Corruption Fund (the FBK) Lubov Sobol told about the violations in the repair of a skyscraper on Kotelnicheskaya embankment, in which the First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov purchased for himself almost the whole floor.
The reparation of the building, according to Sobol, is reimbursed using Moscow city's budget funds, though, because of the building, which is a dwelling house, the repair should be paid by the Moscow Capital Repair Fund.
“We can easily claim that the repair of Stalin's skyscraper in the amount of 3 121 584 349 rubles from the city budget is unprecedented and the largest spending on capital repair of apartment house in Russia", said in the publication.
Sobol said that, according to an act from 2014, the Moscow Capital Repair Fund has been confirmed as the operator of capital repairs of apartment buildings. In addition, residents of the skyscraper also voted for not to establish a separate repair account and remain with the regional operator. However, according to the statement from the federal public contracts website, the city budget became a source of funding for the repair.
How it all began
Earlier Shuvalov's family purchased in the same way three apartments, which through Kotlyarenko they assigned the ownership’s rights to Sova Estate company. According to the FBK, the First Deputy Prime Minister owns in total 13 apartments with a total area of 1.2 thousand square meters, which is not named in the declaration (in the declaration from 2015 it was named the apartment of 412.7 square meters and the land - 134.3 square meters). The politician also owns an apartment worth 12 million poundsin London, a castle in Austria, dachas in Zarechye and a collection of unique cars.
4th of July it was reported that Igor Shuvalov purchased ten apartments on the 14th floor on a skyscraper on Kotelnicheskaya embankment through his asset manager Sergey Kotlyarenko. It was reported that the total area of purchased apartments is 710 square meters, and they cost about 600 million rubles.
Representatives of Kotlyarenko and Shuvalov confirmed this information. Later lawyer Kotlyarenko claimed that the conflict of interest is excluded, because the First Deputy Prime Minister does not run by him with “impending state decisions”.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
