St. Petersburg acting governor owns 150-million-ruble apartment in Moscow
The cost of the apartment in the heart of the capital is five times the income that Beglov and his wife got over five years.
Alexey Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Fund (FBK) has found out that the acting governor of St. Petersburg, Alexander Beglov, owns an apartment in Moscow. According to FBK materials, the cost of the apartment in the heart of the capital is 150 million rubles. Meanwhile, Beglov and his wife have made only 30 million rubles over the past five years. Alexander Beglov put the 150-square-meter apartment in his 2018 declaration.
According to the investigation, the official bought the apartment in Kazarmenny Lane in 2013, when he was the president’s plenipotentiary in the Central Federal District.
“Tired of the hustle and bustle of a noisy metropolis? How about a quiet place where you could enjoy the silence and spend more time with your family? The house on Pokrovsky Boulevard was created specifically so that every resident would relax after a long day,” says the description of the residential complex.
In total, Beglov has had five apartments, according to FBK. Among them are three small apartments and two larger ones; one of them has an area of 106.7 square meters and is located on St. Petersburg’s Nakhimova Street on Vasilyevsky Island, the other, with an area of 160 square meters, is in Moscow, in a building on Rochdelskaya Street, where public servants tend to settle.
