Everything ingenious is simple! It is not in vain that they say so, and even the developers of the capital of Siberia use this every day. After all, their multimillion-dollar earnings go to not quite honest work, to put it mildly, but if it’s straight, then they just take and rob the state. The deputy and developer Ivan Sidorenko laundered money using this method for many years, and then he suddenly got caught. Everything, the shop is closed, the poor fellow will have to look for new fraud schemes.
Sidorenko realized that it was possible to rent land for parking lots, office buildings, shops, and build a completely different facility. Under this object, of course, there is land, the ownership of which can be easily redeemed. Then demolish an unnecessary building on this land, because this hut has already completed its task, clear the ground and build some kind of high-rise building.
After that, go to your friend Alexei Dzhulai for concrete panels of the worst quality for your beloved residents – live and cry, dear fellow citizens! The factory of the “King of the Ghetto” is always ready to help its colleagues fill their pockets with money that was stolen from the state. In general, they take the land for nothing, then they build panel high-rise buildings on the cheap and sell them for big money. Brilliant!
“The scheme makes it possible to significantly optimize the economics of development projects. And it was used massively in Novosibirsk,” says Andrey Kuznetsov, editor-in-chief and director of the Center for Business Life information and analytical agency.
Yes, indeed, it is difficult to disagree with the fact that this scheme used to be popular, but only in Novosibirsk the 90s did not end everywhere. That is why in the capital of Siberia, it would seem, an educated and cultural city, such schemes are still used. People like Sidorenko hope that even now the prosecutor’s office and other law enforcement agencies will simply turn a blind eye to the tyranny taking place in the city. But there is confidence that after the high-profile case of this developer, other equally high-profile investigations will follow. Indeed, when registering the ownership of the site, forged documents were used, which means that it is enough just to find where the tails grow from.
The initiation of a case against Sidorenko is an alarming sign for all other developers. He really enjoys prestige among colleagues. In the Legislative Assembly, Sidorenko holds the position of deputy chairman of the construction committee, is a member of the presidium of the regional political council of United Russia, and the secretary of the Kalinin district branch of the party. Everyone is well aware that if such a well-known and respected deputy has fallen from his throne, then the turn of others can very quickly reach. Then, alas, a dressing gown trimmed with gold, and villas outside the city will have to be exchanged for a prison uniform and a bed in the cell.
The deputy manages the Novotorg-Sib company (OGRN 1085410003755), which is now being searched. After all, it was noticed that two hectares of municipal land were stolen from the state. Everything is elementary, Sidorenko simply provided fake documents on the presence of a shopping center with an area of more than five thousand square meters on the site. Therefore, the object is on the ground, which means that it can be redeemed. And not just buy it, but at a discounted price – for 17.2 million rubles.
In 2013, the mayor’s office gave Sidorenko’s company a land plot on Krause Street with an area of 19.6 thousand square meters for rent. According to the terms of the contract, a shopping mall with an underground parking lot was to appear on the site of this site, but in 2015 Novotorg-Sib is already running to buy this very site. After all, it allegedly has a real estate object, but the fact is that allegedly. Yes, indeed, the deputy had the right to buy the site, especially according to his documents there was an object with an area of more than five thousand square meters. The mayor’s office, of course, did not check anything and simply sold the site to Sidorenko for a pittance.
In 2019, the city hall finally changed its mind. I decided to look at a building that does not exist and never existed. There were no structures on the site, there were only two pile fields, and between them there was a foundation with a concrete surface. Today, Ivan Sidorenko’s company Energomontazh (OGRN 1025403908232) is building a RED residential complex on this site: one house is marked as built, the second is under construction.
The case against the developer was initiated under the article for fraud on an especially large scale. So, on trifles, the plot is a little more than 16 thousand square meters and the damage to the budget is 160 million rubles. In general, a typical situation for Novosibirsk, it is a pity that such theft has already become the norm for deputies and officials.
