Wife of ex-FSO head replaces Mikhalchenko as co-owner of large medical company
The wife of ex-head of the Federal Protective Service Lyudmila Murova replaces the arrested Dmitry Mikhalchenko as co-owner of a large medical company.
The wife of former Head of the Federal Protective Service Evgeny Murov, Lyudmila Murova is co-owner of the private medical company Ediny Meditsinsky Tsentr (EMT, United Medical Center), Forbes reports.
The publication notes that EMT is one of the largest private medical companies of Russia. By the end of 2016, its revenue amounted to 1.7 billion rubles ($29.2 million).
According to the Uniform State Register of Legal Entities, Ediny Meditsinsky Tsentr belongs to Tsentrfinans LLC, which, in turn, is owned by three co-owners – Invest-Kapital LLC (33%), Storent LLC (34%), and former Director General of Rosmorport FSUE, retired Major-General of the FSB Nikolay Negodov (33%).
Since July 2017, 100% of Invest-Kapital has been owned by Murova. As previously reported by the CrimeRussia, the grandson of former FSO director Nikita Andreevich Murov heads the company.
Half of Storent LLC also belongs to Lyudmila Murova, while the second half belongs to Negodov.
To recall, the retired FSB general is a long-time partner of Director General of Forum Holding Company Dmitry Mikhalchenko, who was arrested in March 2016 on charges of alcohol smuggling. In 2015, according to SPARK, Mikhalchenko and Negodov had equal shares in EMT. As reported by Delovoy Peterburg, in 2017, Dmitry Mikhalchenko was a co-owner of Storent LLC along with Negodov, whom he called 'stepfather'. Now, Lyudmila Murova is the co-owner of these assets instead of the arrested oligarch.
In 2015, RBC reported that Ediny Meditsinsky Tsentr provided medical examination services for United Migration Centers. Both centers are linked to Negodov and Mikhalchenko’s Forum. According to Forbes’s source, related to the medical business of St. Petersburg, EMT has actually received a monopoly on issuing certificates for obtaining weapons, driver's licenses, medical certificates for obtaining positions of judges and work in investigative bodies, as well as medical commissions for migrants.
It was previously reported that shortly before the start of hearings over the smuggling case, Mikhalchenko had sold part of his business, in particular, the Bronka port in St. Petersburg, to the family of former head of the Federal Protective Service. It is known that Mikhalchenko's structures had closely interacted with the FSO, which, among other things, led to the resignation of Murov.
