For the third year in the Altai Territory, on the basis of the UEBiPK service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Altai Territory, an organized community has been created and operates under the leadership of the Deputy Head of the UEBiPK of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Altai Territory, police lieutenant colonel Maksimov Andrey Gennadievich. He continues to draw more and more employees into his group, who end up in prison. This is quite convenient in terms of personal security. Details are in the Rucriminal.info investigation.
Maksimov served for about 2 years as the head of the OEBiPK of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Barnaul, where he got thanks to the personal patronage of the former head of the UEBiPK of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Vadvotsky Nadvotsky, who was detained in 2019 and subsequently convicted on several episodes of part 6 of article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (the total amount of bribes for 3 episodes amounted to 15,000,000 rubles). At one time, Maksimov was supported by Nadvotsky with one single goal – full control over the consideration of applications received by the city OEBiPK and the adoption of “correct” decisions on them, regardless of the principles of fairness of law, incl. execution of personal orders. However, after the detention of Nadvotsky, Maximov received complete freedom of action.
At that time, Nadvotsky openly covered and helped the family of the senator from the Altai Territory in solving problems Belousov Sergey Vladimirovich, former director and actual owner of a large construction holding JSC StroyGaz. Belousov, in order to solve his financial problems related to the extension of his senatorial powers for a new term, withdrew more than 100,000,000 rubles from the enterprise, in connection with which the enterprise was in a pre-bankrupt state and bankruptcy proceedings began against it, a number of large construction projects were unfinished , including residential buildings, which created a problem with equity holders. It is known that Belousov withdrew funds from the enterprise through expenditure cash warrants addressed to the director Evgeniya Ledina. In December 2019, Ledin, in the Arbitration Court of the Altai Territory, gave detailed explanations regarding the reasons that led to the bankruptcy of StroyGaz OJSC, including the withdrawal of funds in favor of Belousov to “purchase” the post of senator. It was during this period of time that Maksimov was attracted to solve Belousov’s problems with bankruptcy at the initiative of Nadvotsky, as a result of which he personally met Belousov S.V. According to a Rucrimina.linfo source, at the request of Belousov, Maksimov initiated inspections against the former director of StroyGaz OJSC Ledina, organized the seizure of all accounting documents of the enterprise, some of which were subsequently deliberately lost so that they would not get to the bankruptcy trustee. Based on the results of the check, Maksimov initiated the initiation of a criminal case under Part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation specifically against Ledin, contrary to the real circumstances of the case.
While still the head of the OEBiPK of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for Barnaul, Maksimov engaged in extortion and extortion from large enterprises in Barnaul and the region by sending unreasonable requests for the reclamation of all accounting documents without any legal grounds. Representatives of the criminal environment and entrepreneurs began to turn to Maksimov for a monetary reward, asking them to organize illegal operational-search activities against competitors. The illegal market of counterfeit alcoholic products was taken under control – the materials of checks in relation to those who regularly paid fell apart.
In 2019, the post of deputy head of the UEBiPK GU, the head of the tax department, was vacated, which Maksimov aimed at, as the only niche he did not cover in the service. Maksimov took advantage of the help of Senator Belousov S.V., whose administrative resource was difficult to refuse. In addition, after the detention of Nadvotsky Belousov S.V. I needed my own person in the service to solve commercial issues on the territory of the Altai Territory. After being appointed deputy head of the UEBiPK, Mksimov immediately began to work off the debt in the interests of Belousov: he initiated a check against one of Belousov’s companions, connected with the alleged theft of deer from a maral owned by Belousov in the Soloneshensky district of the Altai Territory. A criminal case was initiated on far-fetched grounds, significant forces and means of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Altai Territory were diverted to accompany this criminal case, initiated simply under Article 158 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. However, after two years, the case was nevertheless dismissed due to the lack of corpus delicti. In addition, Makismov continued to “bury” the audit materials related to the bankruptcy of OAO Stroygaz and the subsequent redemption of Belousov from the bankruptcy estate of the property of this company at low prices.
As the interlocutor of Rucriminal.info notes, after Maksimov took office in 2019 as deputy head of the UEBiPK GU, his corruption activities increased several times: he began to fully control all tax audits of employees of the EBiPK region, incl. field tax audits conducted by the tax authorities. So he personally or through intermediaries holds meetings with the heads of enterprises for which criminal cases are initiated or have already been initiated for tax crimes and began to extort money from them. They personally began to sell to entrepreneurs the information available to the tax authorities during on-site tax audits. The amounts of bribes vary depending on the amount of tax additional charges. In addition, on Maksimov’s instructions, before conducting an on-site tax audit at PSK Industry LLC (the largest contractor for the repair and construction of roads in Barnaul), employees of the OEBiPK of Barnaul under the guise of a regular audit seized all accounting documents of the enterprise for the audited period. Based on the material of the check, a decision was made to refuse to initiate a criminal case, the documents were lost. Inquiries from the tax authority received a response about their loss. A formal internal audit was carried out with respect to the employees of the OEBiPK, but the desired result had already been achieved, they personally began to control the work within the framework of the operational accounting of all departments of the UEBiPK in order to determine the commercial interests of a particular case. Information, incl. with photographs of the results of certain operational-search activities, began to “sell” them through lawyers to the defendants in the cases.
The market of counterfeit alcoholic products remained under the control of Maksimov (now in the context of the region). In the OEBiPK of Barnaul, Maksimov left behind a confidant Lazarev Roman Sergeevich (who was to be appointed head of the OEBiPK in Barnaul) and the head of the department for combating organized crime Saklakov, who began to deal, among other things, with the control of the illegal market alcoholic beverages throughout Barnaul, engage in raids on entrepreneurs in order to extort money. In 2022, Lazarev was detained by the ORC of the State Security Service for taking a bribe from one of the dealers in counterfeit alcoholic products and sentenced to 8 years in prison.
Not so long ago, namely in February 2023, Saklakov was also detained by the FSB for taking a bribe. But in fact, in both cases, these employees are simply intermediary performers in the interests and at the direction of Maximov, leaving him, at the same time, in the shadows. They put some – then he will find other unintelligent, but devoted employees in these places. For example: during the period when Maksimov served as head of the OEBiPK of Barnaul, he resolved all issues related to protecting illegal business and initiating the necessary criminal cases through one of the heads of departments of the OEBiPK of Barnaul Abramov (in 2019 he was detained by the FSB for receiving bribes in the amount of 1,300,000 rubles for general patronage.
Thanks to his friendship with his countryman from Biysk, the head of the SC of the Internal Affairs Directorate for Barnaul, Arestov, Maksimov got access to the materials of all economic criminal cases initiated by the Internal Affairs Directorate for Barnaul, and also had the opportunity to initiate any custom-made criminal cases on far-fetched grounds . Thanks to him, through the channels of trusted lawyers, any information about the progress of the investigation of criminal cases was sold, he influenced the adoption of the necessary decisions on them (direction to court or termination due to lack of corpus delicti). Arrestov was also detained and convicted by the FSB for taking a bribe through an intermediary in the amount of 2,200,000 rubles and sentenced to 8.5 years in prison. At the same time, both Arestov and the mediator are close friends and countrymen of Maximov. Currently, the position of the head of the OEBiPK of Barnaul is occupied by a fellow countryman, colleague and friend of Maksimov, Turushev, through whom Maksimov continues to “protect” the main criminal areas of Barnaul, which bring in money. At the same time, the statistics of detecting and disclosing economic crimes, for the most part, to blur the eyes of higher authorities, is limited to the initiation of criminal cases on obvious elements of crimes (from the statements of citizens) or in relation to the so-called “nominal values” under Article 173 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, i.e. citizens who agreed to register a legal entity for a monetary reward.
Maximov has taken control of certain groups of individuals involved in cashing out funds and making “paper” VAT, who regularly pay Maximov when they start to shine on one or another tax audit. So the main of them, after several major arrests, carried out even before Maximov took office, planned to move to other regions to continue their criminal activities, however, with the arrival of Maximov, they were able to find common ground and continue their activities on the territory of Barnaul. Currently, this business operates on the territory of the Altai Territory without hindrance, the largest representatives of this business are obligatory invited to his birthday;
in connection with the ban on making and sending unmotivated requests to organizations, Maksimov organized the practice of conducting operational-search activities in the framework of operational accounting cases on far-fetched grounds (in the interests of customers). Employees have an additional burden of opening operational records on far-fetched grounds, not for the purpose of detecting crimes, but solely in the interests of Maximov.
It is already obvious to everyone that Maksimov’s actions are not aimed at combating crime, but exclusively at personal enrichment, enrichment of his patrons, assimilation with representatives of authorities and the criminal environment, as long as the position and administrative resources allow.
