The bureaucratic bins of Alexander Gornshtein: millions of rubles of his wife and some compromising evidence on “himself”
The Novosibirsk municipality’s most disciplined officials have already begun publishing their 2022 tax returns.
Babr could not fail to take advantage of such a conscientious attitude of the representatives of the Lokt team to their duties and looked into the new “box” of Alexander Gornshtein, head of the Communications and Informatization Department of the mayor’s office.
If we talk about high-profile scandals related to the participation of an official, then the last time Alexander Gorshtein “lit up” in the story of a Novosibirsk teacher who posted a candid video on social networks, where she performed some kind of bizarre erotic dance in her underwear. The girl was fired and publicly reprimanded from all sides. It was in the pandemic year of 2021. Alexander Gornstein stood up for the failed Isadora Duncan.
“Every time I see inflated stories about teachers, I want to write my opinion. And each time I started to write and quit, but this time I will write anyway. Something needs to be done about the teaching profession. We have a “digital transformation” of the country, but the teachers seem to have turned out overboard. The modern world is a world without personal boundaries, and you need to get used to it. I’m not saying it’s good or bad, it’s just a fact. A whole generation has grown up, raised on Instagram, who have the norm to put everything on display. Anything. And young teachers are already in this generation. And it is unlikely that they will understand the message that this is immoral, and it is not immoral at all, this is the norm now. Like puffed up lips and so on, ”NGS.ru wrote at the time, citing an official.
Search a woman
As for the wage standards, the income of the “chief on postings” for 2022 amounted to just over two million rubles. And this is almost the same as in 2021. But Gorshtein’s wife has a real breakthrough. If the year before last she declared about two million rubles, then the income for 2022 amounted to five and a half million.
At the same time, Ms. Hornstein did not record any facts about the sale of any elite movable property or real estate that could explain such a sharp increase in income. She also owns six non-residential premises of different sizes, the spouses own a common apartment of 64 square meters, Alexander Gorshtein owns another housing, with an area of smaller than 46 square meters. Not a single car per family has been declared, which is at least surprising.
Do they rent several cars for the whole family or take a taxi? Other options are walking, cycling, rickshaw, camel, broomstick. In Novosibirsk, this is not possible. Elbow out on children’s horses sometimes rides, and he is the mayor. For a moment – there are two children in the family, parents are active in social activities. Where was the iron horse hidden from the tax authorities?
A little compromising evidence
Recall that Alexander Gorshtein received his official stool on March 2, 2015. His predecessor, Evgeny Popantonopulo, in turn, lost his seat in the city hall in April 2014, immediately after Anatoly Lokt took office. Until March 2, the duties of the head of the “connected” department were performed by Sergey Zaitsev. Gornstein is not a native Siberian, he was born in Kirovograd, and 13 years later he moved to Novosibirsk. In 2005, he graduated from NSTU with a degree in electronics and microelectronics, and a year later he received an engineer’s qualification in industrial electronics. As for the frank compromising evidence on the official, it appears on the Web from time to time.
“A whole journalistic pool of Jacob London, headed by his wife Maria London, allows Alexander Anatolyevich Gorshtein to feel calm and have good political prospects. Eternal impunity led in 2017 to excessive courage. Gorshtein Alexander, as the head of the department, arranged a number of multimillion-dollar tenders for software upgrades that were not required. Some of these upgrades have already been implemented earlier under service contracts. The scheme came to light when one of these contracts was awarded, by participating in an electronic tender, to a company completely unrelated to London-Hornstein. They failed to fulfill the contract, since representatives of the company were not allowed to access the source codes under any circumstances,” Kompromat wrote in 2017. Ru
