Deputy Dolzhenko presented with an invoice
Dubai voyage of United Russia member Denis from Vologda Dolzhenko may cost him a political career: his behavior outraged not only voters, but also party members. Another scandal occurred in the Russian deputy corps. Following the deputy of the Kursk Regional Duma Maxim Vasiliev, who had fun in Mexico during the shelling of the Ukrainian Armed Forces region, the deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the Vologda region Denis discredited himself Dolzhenko. The latter, not only considered it right to spend the New Year holidays away from home – in Dubai, but also vehemently boasted about it all over the country on social networks.
Of the real cases of the people’s choice, local residents only remember the scandalous proceedings with his ex-wife. Now, according to Andrey Turchak, Secretary of the United Russia General Council, he will be deprived of his party card. And soon he may lose his political career – who will vote for him after that?
Denis Dolzhenko has been working as a people’s choice on a professional basis since 2011. This means that he does not work anywhere else, and, allegedly, lives only on the deputy’s salary. At the same time, the income of Mr. Dolzhenko and his spouses surprisingly “jump”.
According to the Declarator website, for 2019 Dolzhenko earned a modest 230 thousand rubles. However, a year earlier, his income amounted to 7 million rubles. And already in 2020, he again “rolled” – 2.1 million rubles. What caused this difference is difficult to say.
Myself Dolzhenko can explain the increase in income, for example, the sale of some property. But evil tongues claim that in recent years a deputy can allegedly “cheat” when submitting a declaration in order to pay less taxes and not arouse the anger of his own voters.
As the information portal “To the point” writes, at the same time Denis Dolzhenko owns an expensive Lexus car, and the budget pays him the cost of an apartment. Apparently, all the money from the deputy’s salary goes to the maintenance of an expensive car. In addition, until 2013, the deputy (already being in the Legislative Assembly), “patriotically” owned real estate in Bulgaria.
That is Dolzhenko could take funds for renting housing from the state, and he himself had a rest in Dubai, the UAE. And all this while his country is fighting for the liberation of Donbass. Observers note that on this occasion the people’s choice practically did not speak at all, which could become a reason for Andrey Turchak’s additional dissatisfaction.
Turchak himself has repeatedly visited the zone of a special military operation, is involved in the coordinating bodies associated with its implementation. Accordingly, it is under Western sanctions. Apparently a similar fate Dolzhenko does not want to, therefore he is “embarrassed” to support his country.
According to Andrei Turchak, those who “have lost touch with reality” will be replaced by “those like our guys at the front” and “those like those who help them in the rear.” A clear allusion to the fact that one deprivation of the membership card for Dolzhenko the matter is not over.
MP or businessman?
On the official website of the Vologda EP in the biography Dolzhenko it is indicated that before being elected to the regional parliament, he worked in a number of organizations. Among other things, until 2009 he was the financial director and general director of Vologdametallostroy LLC (VMS LLC).
The fact is that in the “connections” section of the organization, the founder can be seen: the same Denis Dolzhenko acted as the founder of a number of other commercial organizations. Moreover, he was already in the period of his deputy activity, until 2020.
These are Comfort LLC, Energia Optimum North-West LLC, Capital LLC. These companies are similar to one-day firms, but this does not change the question – why did Denis Evgenievich not mention a word about this in his official biography?
In the same 2017 Dolzhenko entered the Investment Council under the governor of the region, and, it seems, for a reason. After all, now it turned out that a year later he founded a whole series of companies, about which he “forgot to tell” his voters.
Firms have all the signs of fictitiousness: either zero or one officially employed employee, authorized capital of 10, maximum 20 thousand rubles, minuses or zeros in the column on financial activity. Financial statements in them could be tritely “drawn”, driving funds through them. Isn’t that why Dolzhenko modestly kept silent about these business projects?
“Cherche la femme”
It is difficult to find out what exactly Denis Dolzhenko helped people as a people’s choice: actively went in for sports, ran, rested in foreign resorts, flaunted in front of cameras. Among other things, he was engaged in cheap PR at the budget expense.
In 2020, the Legislative Assembly of the Vologda Oblast purchased postcards depicting “servants of the people” for several hundred thousand rubles. According to the authors of the site “Cherepovets Truth”, allegedly Denis Dolzhenko asked volunteers to deliver postcards with his portrait to the boxes of local residents. Was he going to engage in such social activities in 2017?
However, most of the region Dolzhenko remembered scandals with his ex-wife. According to the authors of the site partizan35.ru, allegedly back in 2012, his ex-wife, who was then the director of the Globus Tour travel agency, Elena Kuznetsova, disappeared with the money of the company’s clients, which she took from the cash register. No one else saw her, and the amount of damage could be 2.5 million rubles.
At the same time, very strange rumors are circulating about their divorce. According to the authors of the Telegram channel “Elections, elections, elections …”, allegedly during the divorce proceedings, he poured prohibited substances into his wife’s food and drinks, after which he initiated an examination in court.
Sounds very doubtful. But no less doubtful than the desire to serve his people and country, which he himself shows Dolzhenko. Do we need such people in the deputy corps – judge for yourself.
