Mirsiyapov is hit by Belousov: what journalists and bloggers will find in a closed dossier on a billionaire official
The media publish compromising materials. It is not yet clear what this interest is related to. The figure is non-public, but the position he holds is quite valuable: Mirsiyapov oversees infrastructure industries, investments, tariff regulation.
Before that, he made a rapid managerial career – he worked at Transneft, was considered the second person in Inter RAO, was an adviser to the head of Promsvyazbank. He was appointed to the Office of the First Deputy Prime Minister a year ago.
It should be noted that Mirsiyapov has already found himself in an unpleasant situation. This happened when the so-called “Tsurkan case” unfolded. Karina Tsurkan is a former top manager of Inter RAO, sentenced to 15 years in prison for spying for Moldova. Mirsiyapov left the company in 2018 after her arrest. “According to a source close to the board of the holding, this was due to the audio recordings that Inter RAO employees received by mail,” Moskovsky Komsomolets wrote.
What’s happening now looks like a real scandal. The media provides data on allegedly dubious income, large real estate, expensive cars and Mirsiyapov’s discrediting connections. “And this is only what is known and what Mirsiyapov himself does not seek to hide,” assures the media portal “Moment of Truth” in the material entitled “Loud scandals did not prevent billionaire Ilnar Mirsiyapov from getting a promotion and increasing his wealth.”
“After the appointment of Ilnar Mirsiyapov to public office, independent journalists and bloggers ask questions about the sources of his income,” writes Pravda.Ru. – Almost every day loud corruption scandals with the current persons in power are played out. Therefore, it is very strange to see new persons in the ranks of high-ranking civil servants, about whom questions immediately arise. And the most important of them is whether they fight corruption in power, or are officials removed for fraud only when they become undesirable for other reasons?” Further developments will show how thorough these claims are.
Ilnar Mirsiyapov is one of the most interesting figures. He is called a billionaire, and Mirsiyapov earned his fortune at Transneft and Rosatom. Since 2010, he has headed the strategy and investment unit at PJSC Inter RAO. Ilnar Mirsiyapov was a member of the board of the state company, but left it after a high-profile scandal with Karina Tsurkan. She was detained in 2018 in the case of espionage, but Mirsiyapov’s story not only did not hurt, but also contributed to his promotion.
After leaving PJSC Inter RAO, Mirsiyapov worked at Promsvyazbank, but in early 2020 he was promoted. Thus, Ilnar Mirsiyapov became an assistant to First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov. He was entrusted with supervising infrastructure industries, investments and tariff regulation. After such a high-profile scandal, Mirsiyapov not only “departed” with dismissal, but also received a more prestigious position. For what merits, a mystery.
YOU CAN’T FORBID TO LIVE BEAUTIFULLY
The decision to dismiss Ilnar Mirsiyapov from PJSC Inter RAO was made almost immediately after the arrest of Karina Tsurkan. The state-owned company stated that personnel changes are not related to this criminal case. Most likely, Ilnar Mirsiyapov was upset by the dismissal, which was predictable. But he should be glad that he didn’t join Tsurkan.
However, Mirsiyapov does not need to work at all, because many officials may envy his financial situation. According to rumors, Mirsiyapov made his fortune on raiding, legalization of unclean money, as well as on trading insider data. In trade, he was assisted by his friend Ivan Pronin, who suddenly had a fortune of 3 billion rubles. Mirsiyapov’s official earnings can hardly impress anyone. He himself often forgets to declare income, but it’s no secret that Ilnar Mirsiyapov lives in a big way.
Thus, he has an apartment of about 500 square meters in the elite residential complex “Knightsbridge Private Park”. The cost of such apartments can reach 500 million rubles. In addition to the apartment, Mirsiyapov has two parking spaces with an area of 20 square meters. Without an additional source of funds, such property cannot be afforded. Mirsiyapov’s passion for expensive cars also deserves attention. Like all wealthy people, he travels with the cherished AAA numbers. Thus, in his fleet you can find Mercedes AMG GLE 63S, Land Rover, Range Rover and Mercedes s560 Maybach. And this is only what is known and what Mirsiyapov himself does not seek to hide. Apparently, the possibility of life so comfortable in the government did not confuse anyone. Moreover, working as Belousov’s assistant, Mirsiyapov has the opportunity not to worry that law enforcement officers can pay attention to him at any time,” Ruspress writes in the article “High-ranking government staff officer Ilnar Mirsiyapov got into a compromising scandal.”
