Maksakova whose ex-partner is suspected of murdering Voronenkov sues 1bln from his ex-wife
State Duma deputy Voronenkov was assassinated in Kyiv in 2017.
The widow of the deceased ex-State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov, Maria Maksakova, will get his real estate worth 1 billion rubles ($15,442). This decision was made by the court of Tver.
Maria Maksakova has sued real estate worth 1 billion rubles from Voronenkov's ex-wife.
The initiator of the case was Maksakova herself – she did not want to share money with the ex-wife of the parliamentarian, and the judge came through. Voronenkov’s marriage with Maksakova was his third one. He had two children from the previous marriage.
In April, Maksakova stated that her former common-law husband, Vladimir Tyurin, was not involved in the murder of the former deputy. Voronenkov was killed with a firearm on March 23, 2017, when he was leaving a hotel in Kyiv. According to Kyiv law enforcement bodies, it was Tyurin who had ordered the hit.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
