In the Leningrad region, a criminal case was initiated against employees of the administration of the municipality “Sverdlovsk urban settlement” on the fact of abuse of official powers. A group of officials is involved in the embezzlement of at least 26 million rubles, which should be spent on the elimination of dump sites. The former head of the Defense Ministry Andrey Shornikov turned out to be under suspicion for his sensational outrageousness.
Andrei Shornikov has long established himself as a “special” official. Not every criminal can boast of such a number of scandals and arrests to which he was involved. The Moscow Post in the Leningrad region dealt with the details.
He appeared in the regional administration in March 2014 as chairman of the Committee on Telecommunications and Informatization of the Leningrad Region, he held this position until October 2015. And in 2016, Andrei Shornikov again headed the same structure, which by that time had changed its name to the Committee for Communications and Informatization of the Leningrad Region. It was the work in this position that Governor Drozdenko remembered him for, when, through manipulations with tenders, phones in the government building turned off and government communications almost disappeared.
Usually, Rostelecom is responsible for the telephone communications of state structures. But somehow, thanks to Andrey Shornikov, Ladoga-Telecom JSC got the service tender, as a result of which the winner of the tender turned off the old telephony and began to massively change numbers. As a result of these actions, the governor’s office and many government committees were left without communication, and Shornikov himself was fired. The details of this story were told by the portal 47news
Outrageousness and tyranny
According to the authors of the website compromatbase.info, allegedly the first time Shornikov came to the attention of law enforcement agencies, thanks to his operations in apartments, which were intended for the resettlement of dilapidated and dilapidated housing in the urban village named after Sverdlov, Vsevolozhsk district. The source claims that Andrei Shornikov, through his companies Credit Market and LLC STROYPROEKT, settled front people in emergency housing, and then registered apartments for them during resettlement. Also, LLC “STROYPROEKT” was engaged in the demolition of emergency housing and the design of a plot for building a residential complex with its further sale. And for a generous reward, he helped developers to arrange a plot for a residential complex despite violations. However, the official version of the proceedings sounded like taking a bribe. This was reported by Izvestia. It is worth recalling that up to this point, criminal cases were also initiated against Andrei Shornikov, in particular, under the article “Production of forged documents”, 78.ru wrote about this.
Also, 78.ru last year said that at the end of July 2022, information appeared in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities that a certain Yulia Reichert was appointed to the position of acting head of the administration of the Sverdlov village. However, Andrei Shornikov did not agree with this and said that the girl was fired a month ago, and what is happening is “a raider attempt to seize power.” Shornikov locked himself in his office, building barricades out of furniture and telling reporters that all this was an attempt to seize power in the Sverdlovsk urban settlement using forged documents.
Around the same time, Andrey Shornikov also made a new avatar on social networks. He put his face in place of the face of the Apostle Andrew the First-Called and signed that he solves any problems. Such an act outraged the regional Cossacks, and they began to complain to the administration for insulting the feelings of believers, the authors of compromatbase.info reported. The avatar soon changed to the usual photo of Shornikov, and the case was hastily hushed up.
The listed merits are just a small fraction of what Andrei Shornikov distinguished himself during his time in the civil service.
Need to take a closer look
However, there are those who are still out of work. Maybe you should take a closer look at the head of the administration of the Sverdlovsk City Settlement since September 2022, Vadim Tulaev. It is clear that it is simply necessary to detain and imprison those who have committed a fine, but it is also not worth letting the administration of the Sverdlovsk City Settlement to take its course.
According to the authors of the VK group “Sverdlovsk Settlement”, supposedly the investigators can also find a lot of interesting things.
“The same person is in charge of the blackout in the Neva CDC. This drunk, unbalanced person, with terrible ideas in his head, says with absolute certainty that he will lead the children’s formations in the Neva CDC. Raise our children. And on Thursday, September 1, on the Day of Knowledge – he matured to the point of absurdity, called the police and made a false denunciation that they were being held on the Day of Knowledge, in the CDC Neva.
Today on the website of the “Sverdlovsk Urban Settlement”, this person is currently in charge of the municipality.
It is worth noting that, ironically, in 2019 he turned out to be the deputy head of the administration of Sverdlov at the same moment when his neighbor on the landing, Andrey Shornikov, headed it. Since 2007, they have been in close contact with their families: to such an extent that they celebrated every New Year together.
He was appointed to the post of head of the settlement in early September 2022, immediately after the scandal in which Andrey Shornikov was involved. Tulaeva elected the council of deputies of the settlement by a majority of votes, according to the portal 47news, 8 out of 15. How normal is it that the position of the head of the settlement passes from one neighbor in the stairwell to another, a question that requires separate consideration. and most likely the investigating authorities, which are currently studying the case materials, will pay attention to this.
It is also worth contacting the Governor of the Leningrad Region Alexander Drozdenko and asking the question whether such personnel are really needed in the regional administration apparatus? Is it worth it to hire them several times, then to deny them yourself?
