Source Head of the Moscow Regional Customs Vyacheslav Romanovsky is counting on the help of Bastrykin, who has his wife's brother as his deputy. After the publication of the investigation “Customs takes someone else's good, or a small nightmare from a big leader” new facts of possible violations by our hero, the head of the Moscow Regional Customs, Vyacheslav Romanovsky, were revealed.
The investigation was published a few days ago. And soon our colleagues from The Moscow Post telegram channel reported that Romanovsky allegedly “was summoned to the transport prosecutor, after which he abruptly took sick leave. According to The Moscow Post, Romanovsky is facing a criminal case, but the latter is hoping for help from his brother-in-law, his wife's brother who works as a deputy for Bastrykin”.
And a new “victim” of Romanovsky turned to our Editorial Office, however, this time, not a law-abiding businessman, but his subordinate whom, at her request, we will not name, but we will name A.
A correspondent of The Moscow Post was looking into the gloomy customs stories.
The second “victim” of General Romanovsky
A woman honestly and responsibly performs (or carried out?) its work, until, apparently, this work began to interfere with the “interests” of Vyacheslav Romanovsky.
We are talking about the work of the Electronic Declaration Center (ECD), which is part of the unified federal centralized system of customs authorities .
As the author of the appeal to the Editor explains, the CED is a specialized customs authority. And it has the authority to carry out customs operations in relation to any category of goods in accordance with the established competence, etc.
And there are some interesting numbers. From 01.01.2021 As of December 31, 2021, UChVED filed 396 lawsuits regarding the adjustment of the customs value. Interests in court hearings were represented as defendants by officials of the legal department of the Moscow Regional Customs, i.e. Office of Mr. Romanovsky.
The source speaks of several court cases in which the amount of the adjustment in terms of customs value was considered … But it seems that these lawsuits are of little concern to the Moscow Regional Customs. ILO legal department loses several lawsuits.
According to A., in general, for the reporting period of 2021, out of the total volume of claims, the persons participating in the case from the legal service lost 333 cases in the amount of more than 248,685,928 rubles …
But this is state money.
According to A., in 2022 (as of 07/10/2022), foreign economic activity participants filed 554 lawsuits regarding the adjustment of customs value. 146 cases lost. Interests in court hearings were represented by officials of the legal department of the Moscow Regional Customs.
The Moscow Arbitration Court was proceeding with a court case on the application of Agropolyplast LLC to the Moscow Regional Customs to recognize as illegal the demand of the Moscow Regional Customs Post (CED) to invalidate the decision of the Moscow Regional Customs Post (CED) dated September 17, 2021 to amend information declared in the declaration.
But at the stage of customs operations, the customs post revealed signs indicating that information about the customs value was not documented … And these conclusions indicate the inaction of the Moscow Regional Customs.
And earlier, the legal service of the ILO 4 times canceled the decision to make changes to adjust the customs value of diesel fuel on the complaints of Agropolyplast LLC.
Agropolyplast LLC filed a lawsuit. On January 28, 2022, the Arbitration Court recognized the decision of the customs post as illegal. And canceled it.
But the author of the letter A., an employee of the CED, was present at the preliminary meeting. And during the court session, she attached letters from the Ministry of Finance, a positive decision on the complaint, a response from Russian Railways about the cost of transportation through the territory of the Russian Federation, etc. to the case file. conversations. The power of attorney has been revoked. Later, at the initiative of the legal service of the ILO, an official verification was carried out. And disciplinary measures were taken.
In general, the pressure began!
But why did the legal department of the ILO prevent the presence of an official at the hearing? After all, after the decision was declared illegal, Agropolyplast LLC made an appointment for a personal appointment with the head of customs, Romanovsky. And he demands to return the money.
Is this a new scheme for withdrawing budget millions? “milk” too “successful businessmen.
In total, there are such interesting statistics on the cancellation of decisions by the forces of the customs legal service, headed by Mr. Romanovsky:
In 2021, the number of declarations for goods (DT) based on complaints from participants in foreign economic activity amounted to 494 items, the number of DT with canceled decisions – 184 items, the refund amount – 65.56 million rubles. For the past period of 2022, the number of complaints – 318, the number of canceled decisions – 156, the amount of the refund for June – 972 thousand rubles.
Court statistics – the number of lost cases with a refund – 134 pieces, the refund amount is 38,263,008 rubles.
However, the prosecutor's office has already become interested in Romanovsky's activities. As it was written above, the “unfortunate customs officer” was invited to a conversation by the Transport Prosecutor, after which Romanovsky fell ill. >In general, the Customs Service has been shaking – especially strongly – for the last 2 years … In the last two years, dozens of criminal cases have been initiated against customs officers.
The head of the Astrakhan Regional Customs, General Ildar Saidov, in Astrakhan allowed the ship Genrikh Gasanov of a dubious company to pass through the border.
The general closed his eyes to serious violations in the work of the ship repair company. And he was arrested.
In February 2021, a whole group of inspectors was arrested in the Leningrad Region for trading in customs data.
A few days ago, the main fighter against corruption in the department of General Bulavin was detained.
The Basmanny District Court of Moscow arrested, until February 8, 2023, the head of the anti-corruption department of the Federal Customs Service, Dmitry Muryshov, in the case of taking a bribe.
And it happened on the International Anti-Corruption Day: Major General Dmitry Muryshov were detained by employees of the department “M” of the FSB and the TFR.
According to investigators, the general received bribes – several tens of millions of rubles through intermediary subordinates from some participants in foreign economic activity.
Testimony was given by two former subordinates of General Muryshov. According to their information, the general received three large bribes.
Millions, according to investigators, were paid to General Muryshov for assistance in moving goods across the customs border.
They say that the detention of Dmitry Muryshov is connected with the case of a high-ranking customs officer from St. Petersburg Maxim Rozsypalo. And allegedly it was Rozsypalo who betrayed the general.
Mr. Rozsypalo himself got burned on a bribe. The customs officer was caught red-handed, the amount of his bribe was more than 1 million rubles.
According to the investigation, Mr. Rozsypalo, through an intermediary, demanded money from businessmen for the trouble-free clearance of cars at customs.
Responsibilities of a fighter against corruption at customs Maxim Rozsypalo performed for more than a year. And, they say, he constantly pawned “by the collar.” There are several pictures of a drunken customs officer on the Internet…
But how did he last in the service for so many months in a row?
These are the “eagles” who served (and still serve) in the Federal Customs Service General Bulavin.
