The source of the Tverskoy District Court of Moscow in the case of bribery in the coordination of construction projects sent high-ranking officials of the Moscow Region government under arrest. What did they spend money on? How the searches were carried out in the Ministry of Housing Policy of the Moscow Region
In fact, throughout the past week, in the complex of buildings of the Government of the Moscow Region in Krasnogorsk, operatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB conducted searches and seizures of documents. According to the investigation, Vagif Agayev, head of the Department for Coordinating the Activities of the Ministry of Housing Policy of the Moscow Region, organized a criminal group in order to systematically take bribes for illegally coordinating the construction of residential and non-residential facilities. So far, the case file mentions 40 large developers and 20 businessmen who could obtain documents and permits with the help of bribes.
Investigators believe that this scheme has been operating at the Ministry of Housing Policy for several years.
So far, the alleged group is charged with two episodes of legalizing illegal buildings in Gorki Leninsky for a bribe of eight million rubles. But investigators are preparing to press new charges.
The court has already chosen a measure of restraint for five defendants. Vagif Agayev was sent to a pre-trial detention center for the next two months. His alleged accomplices, Danara Terekhova, an employee of the permitting department of the Ministry of Housing Policy, and Vyacheslav Malyshev, head of the Department of State and Municipal Services of the Administration of the Governor of the Moscow Region, will be under house arrest. The officials were charged under the most serious – the sixth – part of Article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – “Extortion and receiving a bribe for illegal actions by a group of persons on an especially large scale in public office.” The maximum punishment is up to 15 years in prison with a fine of up to seventy times the amount of the bribe.
Two more defendants are charged with Part 4 of Article 291.1 “Bribery mediation committed on an especially large scale.” The punishment under this article is up to 12 years in prison.
An apartment in the center of Moscow and a rental business in Sochi
Agaev is considered an exemplary worker in the Moscow region government. Almost every year (since 2004) he is encouraged with letters and thanks for good service. He himself boasted about this in his social networks.
As Life found out, Agaev lives in a brick house on Krasnoproletarskaya Street near the Garden Ring, between Arms Square and the Hermitage Garden. He has a three-ruble note worth over 35 million rubles.
Agayev's adult daughter and schoolboy son are registered in a three-room apartment in a high-rise building on Dmitry Donskoy Boulevard at the edge of the forest area of the Severnoye Butovo Ecopark. On the secondary market, about 18 million rubles will be asked for a similar living space.
A year and a half ago, Agaev's wife sold through the Avito portal for 22.4 million rubles a small-sized studio in the Sochi business-class residential complex “Rich House”. This is the historical center of Adler, three hundred meters from the sea.
The family was not left without real estate in Sochi. Since 2021, a Moscow Region official has been renting apartments in an even more prestigious residential complex – Sorrento Park – 250 meters from the sea. This can be seen from his messages in the owners chat. Such real estate will cost more than 30 million rubles, it can be rented out per month for about five thousand per day.
Previously, Vagif Agayev drove foreign cars Alfa Romeo, Volkswagen Golf, Honda Civic and Mitsubishi Outlander. Now his wife has a Mercedes GLE crossover registered. The official himself prefers to travel in official vehicles. BMW 5-series, Toyota Camry and Ford Focus belonging to the State Budgetary Institution of the Moscow Region “Avtokhozyaystvo” were parked using his phone number.
Vagif Agayev has been running social networks since 2011. All this time he constantly travels: sometimes with his family, sometimes alone. The official traveled all over Europe, visited the World Cup in Brazil.
How a high-ranking personnel officer detained for corruption lives
Under the same article as Agaev, Vyacheslav Malyshev, head of the Department of State and Municipal Services of the Administration of the Governor of the Moscow Region, is suspected. Formally, Malyshev could not deal with real estate issues – these are not his job responsibilities. But he is a personnel officer, on whom the careers of other officials depend.
Vyacheslav Malyshev is 44 years old. He comes from the Mordovian village of Chamzinka. Lives in a three-room apartment in Krasnogorsk. The price of such housing is not more than 10 million rubles. Malyshev's mother-in-law and father-in-law are also registered there. The wife's parents still have a modest dacha and a plot in the Mozhaisk village of Balobnovo.
Perhaps Vyacheslav Malyshev skillfully hides his assets. His wife Elena Dzhurko retained her maiden name and under it entered the reserve of the Main Directorate of Gostroynadzor of the Moscow Region in 2018. Now Dzhurko is listed on the website of the regional government in two positions at once: she is the head of the financial and organizational department of the Commissioner for the Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs and the head of personnel of the Department for the Maintenance of Territories of the Moscow Region.
Malyshev and Dzhurko met at the beginning of the 2000s, when both came to work at the ASB-Rating trading company. This business had a debt load of up to 1.9 billion rubles, belonged to a Cypriot offshore and was closed by the tax authorities due to concealment of incorrect information in the statements. new SUV Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
What is known about the detained officials
Investigators suspect 47-year-old Olga Degtyareva, head of the department of urban development plans for land plots of the Ministry of Housing Policy, of mediating bribes. Four years ago, she was already mentioned in a similar corruption scandal. The case calmed down, and the official became more cautious. There is only one photo of her on the Web – on the avatar of the messenger. The photo shows a spectacular woman.
Degtyareva is registered in a panel in Nakhabino. This real estate costs barely 10 million rubles.
However, judging by the Avito portal, where the official sold expensive accessories and spare parts for a Mercedes car, her actual place of residence is different. Somewhere near the capital metro “Fili”. Perhaps this is the club house “Fili Park” in Bagrationovsky passage. When this elite residential complex was being completed, Olga Degtyareva was hastily selling furniture in Nakhabino. When it was completed, she began to publish advertisements for the sale of things already at his address.
The price tag for real estate in the Fili Park residential complex exceeds 300 thousand rubles per square.
According to the security forces, 31-year-old Danara Terekhova, the chief analyst of the department for issuing construction permits of the Ministry of Housing Policy, was also a participant in the corruption scheme. In 2015, she was a postgraduate student at the Department of Urban Cadastre of the State University for Land Management. Originally from Nevinnomyssk. Her husband is from Novorossiysk. They lived in Obninsk, then moved to a new building in the village of Lopatino near Moscow. The price of such real estate is about 10 million rubles.
A certain Maria Koroleva is also under house arrest on suspicion of mediation. All that is known about her is that she is the deputy head of the Department for the Preparation of Documents for the Planning of the Territory of Residential Objects of the Moscow Regional Architecture.
An official may have Misha Bentley in her familyThe case involves the ex-head of the Department for ensuring the construction of residential facilities of the Ministry of Housing Policy Maxim Petrunin. His apartment was searched. But no measure of restraint was chosen for him. He has an older brother, Lyubertsy council member Mikhail Petrunin. Other people's phone books list him as Misha Ferrari, Misha Bentley and Misha Kateryacht.
Maxim Petrunin is 35 years old, married with a child. It is registered in a panel skyscraper on Profsoyuznaya Street near Konkovsky Ponds in Moscow. There he has a kopeck piece worth over 22 million rubles.
Maxim Petrunin is a member of two communities of residents of the Freedom Residential Complex. His wife is in two groups of the nearest school. We are talking about prestigious skyscrapers on Shelepikhinskaya Embankment, 10 minutes to Serebryany Bor, 15 to Moscow City. A square costs 400-500 thousand rubles.
Maxim Petrunin loves expensive cars: he had Mercedes СLS 500 and Audi A7 sedans, BMW X5 SUV. His wife drove a BMW X7 flagship and a Volkswagen Touareg SUV.
Questions to the Ministry of Housing Policy
Four of the six defendants in the case are employees of the Ministry of Housing Policy. According to security officials, Agayev shared bribes not only between alleged accomplices, but also among other people who are now being identified. Minister Inna Fedotova has not yet commented on what is happening.
And the investigators may have questions for other leaders of the Ministry of Housing Policy. Recently, in Life’s investigations, the full namesake of Deputy Minister Olga Ivannikova was mentioned, who could rent out a luxurious mansion in Peredelkino to the owner of Wildberries Tatyana Bakalchuk for two million rubles a month. The cost of houses here reaches 500 million. None of the defendants in the criminal case has such expensive real estate.
