The assets of the ex-official cannot be sold, even examined and evaluated, but Mr. Miroshin himself is full of hope to recover 59 million rubles from the shareholder of SEPO JSC Yevgeny Reznik and exit bankruptcy with a profit.
The lawsuit to declare the former vice-governor bankrupt and introduce a debt restructuring procedure was sent by the finance committee of the Saratov administration back in 2019. In addition, officials wanted to receive 16.8 million rubles from AKM.
The debt grew out of the fee of this colorful character, who earned good money on the implementation of a subsidiary scheme that bled Saratov’s budget by hundreds of millions of rubles. The reason is the subsidiary responsibility of the city administration for the debts of the MU DEZ, it was used by the Criminal Code and the HOA, which received housing stock from the MU DEZ in an inadequate condition. In 2013-2015, the management companies unanimously filed lawsuits against municipal enterprises, the amount of claims most often exceeded 100 million rubles. In the courts, the interests of the Criminal Code were represented by Alexander Miroshin, who, according to rumors, was the author of the scheme.
Each process brought the lawyer a fee of more than 10 million rubles, since the opponent in the face of the mayor’s office invariably lost. The subsidized shop closed only in 2015, and the security forces finally began to thoroughly check the validity of the requirements of management companies and homeowners associations.
During the checks, it turned out that the Center-Dom Management Company received 162 million rubles from the budget by presenting fake acts to the municipality. At this process IP Miroshin A.K. earned a fee of 17 million rubles, but the bankruptcy trustee, who bankrupted the management company, filed a lawsuit against the lawyer himself. The plaintiff believed that 17 million rubles was too high a fee and pointed out that neither the concluded contract nor evidence of the work carried out could be seen.
According to the Center-Dom Management Company, the mayor’s office achieved justice and demanded back its 162 million, including the fee from IP Miroshin. However, the lawyer filed a counterclaim, arguing that he did not owe anything to either the municipality or the Criminal Code itself. It turns out that his debt was sold at a huge discount, as a result of which the cunning lawyer paid less than 500 thousand instead of 16 million and turned out to be clean before creditors.
But Miroshin failed to cancel his obligations to the mayor’s office: there was another case with his participation in the regional arbitration, where the hero asked the mayor’s office for an installment plan for 346 months to pay off the debt, and the star lawyer had already returned 551 thousand rubles to the budget.
It all ended in the personal bankruptcy of the former secretary of the regional Security Council, which was initiated by the mayor’s office. At the suggestion of the mayor’s office, Alexander Rakitin from the Samara SRMOO “Association of Anti-Crisis Managers” became bankrupt.
Already in July 2020, the stage of selling the bankrupt’s property began, and this action is still ongoing. But not because the former vice-governor, the defender of Kristina Orbakaite, is burdened with huge assets, but because the little that Miroshin officially has cannot even be examined and evaluated.
This applies to the car TOYOTA SEQUOIA produced in 2011, a house in Ust-Kurdyum with an area of 183.5 sq. m and a land plot located there for individual housing construction with a size of 1020 sq. m. The appraiser’s foot has not set foot in the house, because the owner every time finds reasons for refusal: either tenants live with him, or a minor daughter born in 2008. Now the daughter seems to be studying abroad, but there is still no access to the house in Ust-Kurdyum.
A separate story with the car: initially, the financial manager had only an almost unreadable copy of the contract for the sale of a car to a certain Philip Isaev, dated back in 2018. The struggle for a normal, high-quality copy even reached 12 AAS, which in 2021 obliged Miroshin to provide an important document in the proper form. Alas, this did not help either. Even the prosecutor’s office of the Saratov (now Gagarinsky) district, where Rakitin addressed with a letter, turned out to be powerless.
The district prosecutor’s office itself filed a lawsuit with the regional arbitration in order to hold Miroshin liable under part 7 of article 14.13 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation for unlawfully obstructing the activities of an arbitration manager. However, in January 2023, Judge Yulia Ognishcheva dismissed the claim, as the prosecutors did not provide evidence that the defendant had been properly informed.
But now a new defendant has appeared in the case – Sergey Ulyanov, to whom Miroshin (judging by the papers that came to the financial manager) sold his car the very next day after the deal with Isaev. That is, a day later, the owner changed his mind, took the car back and sold it to another person. The question is, what was the fuss about an unreadable copy for?
At the same time, the bankrupt himself, according to Alexander Rakitin, drives this car and pays fines. The manager obtained a court ruling on access to the property, including the debtor’s car, for its inventory and evaluation, but now Miroshin and Ulyanov are challenging this ruling in the appellate instance. The latter, by the way, is the husband of another prominent figure in subsidiary battles – lawyer Oksana Vinogradova, who, like Miroshin, made good money on the 2013-2015 campaign, but also fell into personal bankruptcy.
Miroshin and Ulyanov’s special entertainment is to send the financial manager either blank sheets or pages of some extraneous litigation instead of the copies of complaints and other materials necessary for the court.
To whom and how much does Reznik owe?
But these modest joys clearly do not correspond to the scale of the personality of AKM, who at one time had a nightmare for debts of the entire district administration and even governor Pavel Ipatov, who tried to sell his predecessor’s mansion in the Oktyabrsky Gorge. In general, in the third year of personal bankruptcy, Miroshin made a knight’s move – he filed a complaint with the court against the inaction of the financial manager, because of which the defendant allegedly suffered damage of several hundred thousand rubles.
The essence of history is as mysterious and ambiguous as everything in this protracted process. BV has already written about Sirius LLC registered in Saratov in 2017. The founder and director of this modest company with an authorized capital of 10 thousand rubles was Irina Konstantinovna Miroshina, the sister of the former secretary of the regional Security Council. The main profile of Sirius is the provision of other financial services. The company closed in 2019, but a week before the liquidation, Sirius transferred to Alexander Miroshin the rights of claim to Evgeny Petrovich Reznik, who for a long time was the General Director of Saratov Electric Unit Production Association JSC (SEPO JSC) and SEPO-ZEM LLC .
The amount in the cession agreement appears appetizing – 59 million rubles, and the background to its appearance is as follows. Initially, Reznik sold his shares to Sirius (10.9 million shares of JSC SEPO, state registration number of the issue of shares 1-02-46105-E), and six months later, Sirius sold them back to Reznik, and both purchase agreements share sales were deferred.
It is noteworthy that Reznik’s strange contract with Sirius is dated 2017. It was in that year that a corporate conflict broke out at SEPO, the board of directors gave it a start, where it was decided to terminate the contract with top manager Yevgeny Reznik ahead of schedule.
It is known that the executor of the defense order for SEPO is the company LLC SEPO-ZEM, which is also a “daughter” of JSC SEPO. Thus, control over the joint-stock company gives power over the main source of profit – SEPO-ZEM LLC. The legal battle for control of SEPO and SEPO-ZEM was short and bitter. Already in May 2017, Reznik restored the status quo and returned power to the parent joint-stock company, and to SEPO-ZEM LLC.
However, formally, the agreement under which Reznik bought shares in the defense plant from Sirius still exists, and the five-year deferred payment ended in December 2022. It was then that the former general director of SEPO had to pay 59 million rubles to the notorious AKM.
According to the explanations that Reznik gave to Rakitin, no one paid anything to anyone in these transactions, and therefore the former head of the largest defense enterprise in the region has no debt to Miroshin. Yes, and Miroshin himself submitted documents on the cession to the court when more than a year had passed since he was declared bankrupt. The meaning of this gesture was that the financial manager, as part of the bankruptcy procedure, began to collect “debt” from Reznik.
But Rakitin did not agree to this, but advised AKM to personally sue Reznik, but in the event of losing the state duty, and when filing a lawsuit of such a denomination it will be solid, 200,000 rubles, Miroshin will pay himself.
From this refusal, a complaint was born, in which Miroshin asks to recognize as illegal the inaction of financial manager Alexander Rakitin, who does not take measures to collect debts from Yevgeny Reznik. According to the author of the complaint, Rakitin should be removed from his duties, and in addition, he should compensate Miroshin for losses in the amount of 736,869 rubles.
Consideration of the complaint on the merits is scheduled for May 25.
Help “BV”. Alexander Miroshin appeared in regional politics in the mid-1990s, under Governor Dmitry Ayatskov. In 1997-1998 he was the secretary of the Security Council of the Saratov region, since 1999 – vice-governor. With the arrival of Pavel Ipatov in 2005, he left the government, in 2007 he was appointed and. O. Deputy Head of the Administration of Saratov for Public Relations and Chairman of the Committee for Public Relations and Information. I left the post of my own free will.
In September 2009, Miroshin represented the interests of Kristina Orbakaita and Alla Pugacheva in the legal battle for Orbakaite’s son, gained fame as a star lawyer and, in his own words, received the “Hammer” personally from the prima donna. Then he went into the collection business, including demanding to seize the property of the administration of the Baltai region for debts. He loudly reminded himself of himself when he prevented the Ipatov government from selling the former Ayatskov mansion in the Oktyabrsky Gorge at auction.
Financial claims against Miroshin arose more than once. The mother of his first wife Lyudmila Malkova (6 million rubles), the former employer, now deceased Olga Kharzova (more than 31 million rubles), Svetlana Khramova-Ivanova (more than 4 million rubles) tried to collect money from AKM through arbitration.
