In the Istra district of the Moscow region, special forces liquidated an inadequate armed man who seized someone else’s estate and fought. Luxurious mansion is associated with the wife of the former prosecutor general and politician of Ukraine Gennady Vasiliev. What is known about the owners?
Who attacked the mansion in Sherwood
Last Saturday, a 35-year-old native of Krasnoyarsk climbed into one of the luxurious mansions located in the elite Sherwood village near Moscow, which is just over 20 km from Moscow along New Riga Vyacheslav Chernenko. With him, as they say, the man had a Saiga carbine and a couple of machine guns with cartridges, as well as several explosive devices and Molotov cocktails.
The raider explained his act very straightforwardly to the officers of the National Guard who arrived at the scene: “I also want to eat mango, live on Rublyovka“. Negotiations on the peaceful liberation of the occupied housing ended to no avail – the armed invader was destroyed during the assault. Taking into account persuasion to disarm and surrender, the operation to eliminate the criminal lasted 5.5 hours.
According to the SHOT telegram channel, Vyacheslav Chernenko was registered with a psychiatrist and was a religious fanatic. At the same time, according to acquaintances, he did not differ in righteous behavior: the man constantly told everyone about God, which did not prevent him from having drunken parties and quarrels with his mother. Neighbors regularly called not only the police, but also the orderlies of the mental hospital: they allegedly gave both sedative injections.
Realm of luxury
Judging by the photographs, the house in which the shooting took place was noticeably damaged: marble columns, walls and paintings hanging on them were riddled with bullets, and the carpet, which, according to the personnel serving the mansion, cost $ 50,000, was covered with the blood of the murdered.
As it turned out, the mansion attracted the attention of Chernenko on one of the real estate ad sites. Life found several sites at once with an offer to sell it. It turned out that the owners of the mansion have been trying to get rid of the elite living space since at least the beginning of the year. The cost started from the amount of 1 billion 215 million rubles, and by the time the building was seized, it had already dropped to 1.17 billion.
Now it looks like the price is going to drop even more.
In parallel, the estate was rented out – for 3 million rubles a month.
For some reason, the description of real estate varied from site to site: the area of the building varied from 2,147 square meters to 2,500 square meters, while the area of the plot “walked” from 190 to 200 acres. Around the house there is a well-groomed lawn with an intelligent irrigation system, it is divided by paths, a lake with carps, a guard house of 168 sq. m, a garage for 2 cars, a bath area of 105 squares.
You don’t even have to leave the palace itself: a fitness room, a home cinema, a billiard room, a swimming pool, a bar, a sauna – all this is on the basement floor. On the ground floor there is a huge hall, a dressing room, a fireplace room, a dining room, a kitchen, a lounge, a master bedroom with its own bathroom and dressing room, an office and a reception room.
The second floor is given over to three guest bedrooms with their own bathrooms and dressing rooms, a children’s room with a play area and their own bathroom and dressing room, and a staff room.
Each room in the mansion has its own interior, made in the style of different eras and cultures. They are filled with antique furniture, paintings by prominent Russian artists, including Aivazovsky, real Persian handmade carpets worth between $30,000 and $50,000 on the floors, and decorative elements trimmed with gold leaf. According to the most preliminary estimates, the cost of repairs after the assault is estimated at 300 thousand dollars.
Who owns the $1 billion mansion
Life found out that the site on which the estate is located is owned by the Moscow company Nika-Invest, which since 2015 has been owned by a certain Larisa Vasilyeva from the city of Osinniki, Kemerovo region. In the 1990s, a Russian woman also had Ukrainian citizenship on her passport and lived in Donetsk at addresses on Postyshev and Koval streets. Her husband Gennady Vasilyev also registered there. A person with a completely matching full name and the same date of birth in 2003-2004 worked as the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, and later was the leader of the Derzhava party.
In 2008, a number of Ukrainian business publications tried to estimate the fortune of the former prosecutor, and, according to experts, it could range from 575 million to 1.66 billion dollars. Money, as the media wrote Nezalezhnoy, the former official made on the extraction and sale of coking coal, including in Russia.
At the same time, Life could not find any data on the acquisition of Russian citizenship by Vasiliev. According to rumors, the former official lives in Germany, where he is undergoing treatment, and his wife Larisa spends most of her time in Greece.
How the wife of the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine lives in Moscow
In Moscow, Larisa Vasilyeva has a huge apartment of 153 sq. m right in the city center – at the corner of Tverskaya and Sadovaya-Triumfalnaya streets. Here, in 1997, Luzhkov’s urban planners added a monolith-brick remake to the historical building from the side of the courtyard, in which the capital’s moneybags now live – the cost of apartments of approximately the same area here reaches 150 million rubles, i.e. 1 million rubles each per square meter.
Another apartment in which Larisa Vasilyeva was seen is located in Moscow outside the Moscow Ring Road – on Penyaginskaya Street, which is near Krasnogorsk near Moscow. On the ground floor of one of the prestigious low-rise new buildings there is a three-room apartment with an area of 86 sq. m.
Recently, there were several cars in the Vasilyeva park at once – apparently, for different tasks. For example, the flagship Mercedes-Benz S400 sedan, as well as the red Bentley Continental coupe.
