[…] Our story today about a corrupt official and warmonger Andrey Golushko.
Golushko had very rich, inextricably intertwined political and business careers that made him one of the richest and most influential people in the region. […]
Shortly before the start of the war, he resigned his deputy mandate and left Russia for the Cote d’Azur of the Mediterranean Sea.
bk55.ru, 06/10/2022, “Omsk oligarch Golushko fled Russia even before the start of the special operation in Ukraine”: According to BK55, former State Duma deputy Andrei Golushko, who owned the media holding SMI 55 LLC, Omskgorgaz JSC, Omskgazset LLC and Aktsiya Holding Company, left Russia before February 10 this year. Where? Not known. Golushko and his now ex-wife have villas in French Nice. […] Before September 19, Golushko would not have been able to leave in any case. At that time, he was still an active member of the State Duma of the Russian Federation. […]
Further, ex-deputy Golushko decides to sell the assets of the SMI 55 media holding, namely, on September 30, 2021, it became known that the newspaper Vash Oreol was sold to the current deputy of the Omsk City Council, Kontsedalov, and on November 29, 2021, he also sells the online publication Novy Omsk” of the company “Osnova Data Net”, the founders of which are the firm of Antropenko Sr., the father of the current deputy of the State Duma Igor Antropenko, Osnova Holding LLC, and Vsevolod Antropenko. […] According to insiders, his ex-wife Elena Golushko left her homeland much earlier than Andrei Ivanovich, despite the fact that the divorce proceedings for the division of “jointly acquired” property have not yet been completed. — Inset K.ru
We need to start with the fact that this is already the second series of our detailed investigation about Andrei Golushko and his corruption cases.
First part came out in September 2021, when Golushko was still an active deputy from the State Duma. In the last investigation, we talked mainly about the Russian corruption cases of Andrei Ivanovich, and only partially showed his luxurious villa in France.
Let’s briefly recall the essence of this investigation: in 2011, the then Senator of the Federation Council Golushko, together with his friend Sergei Kalinin sold tens of kilometers of the main gas pipeline to themselves, and with the help of their man in the government of the Omsk region, they raised gas tariffs to cover non-existent sales losses. For five years, the damage amounted to more than 2 billion rubles, and all this money was paid by ordinary Omsk residents who pay for gas according to utility bills.
We were also able to film and show Golushko’s villa in France, about which there were only rumors before. We have documented that the villa belongs to the former senator and deputy.
@kaktovottak, 23.04.2021 18:05: Duma deputy Andrey Golushko has a house of 498 m² and a land plot of 78 acres in France, which have long been recorded in his wife’s name – worth more than ₽350 million, according to the most conservative estimates. By declarations for 2020, the deputy’s wife, by the way, earned only 21 kopecks (!). — Inset K.ru
And today we will return again to the Cote d’Azur of the Mediterranean Sea to see how Golushko is doing there. We are again flying over French Mougins, a small town in the vicinity of Cannes, the very famous resort town where the international Cannes Festival takes place.
To our right, the Valmas nature reserve is green, and straight ahead we have one of the most expensive areas of the commune of Mougins. Each of these beautiful houses with tiled roofs and blue pools are worth several million euros.
This entire huge plot of almost half a hectare belongs to the family of former State Duma deputy Andrei Golushko. There is no tennis court on the site, as on the neighboring ones, but its own small forest and chic landscape design.
Let’s look at the documents. According to an extract from the French register, the building itself and the land under it belong to a legal entity – the French company Le Chapelle.
This is a popular way to hide property ownership. The company is owned by Andrei Golushko himself, his wife Elena (her maiden name Baranova is also indicated in the extract) and their daughter Maria Kapt-Golushko, who, by the way, is also an official – until 2021 he worked at the Ministry of CultureDeputy Director of the All-Russian Library named after M. I. Rudomino.
Last year, the villa seemed uninhabited in the middle of the season, and they even wrote to us in the comments – why did you get that Golushko continues to own it at all.
Everything is simple here – firstly, nothing has changed in the new, current statement for October 23 – all our defendants are in place.
But where everything has changed a lot is in the house and on its plot. It is immediately obvious that the Golushko family is not only hiding from the war in a NATO country, but also continues to equip their nest.
Let’s compare last year’s footage and what we managed to shoot at the end of this summer. Some kind of white canopy or veranda with transparent walls and a ceiling between the house and the pool immediately catches your eye – it definitely did not exist last year.
It can be seen that both the house itself and the swimming pool in the yard are actively used – sun loungers are laid out, some things are lying on them. Well, and most importantly, two cars are parked next to the house, and apparently the owners are at home right now, hiding from the bright Mediterranean sun, the war in Ukraine and our close attention.
Somehow it looks very ugly. Yesterday you were a deputy, senator, statesman, you call yourself a patriot. But in fact, it turns out that all this was necessary in order to grab more money in Russia and take refuge in France? What will friends say?
Throughout his life, Golushko was friends and closely communicated not only with patriots, but directly with jingoists to the tenth degree. His two best friends are Medinsky and Mikhalkov. Vladimir Medinsky, we recall, is the former Minister of Culture of Russia, adviser to Putin, head of the negotiating group from Russia on the war with Ukraine.
Well, perhaps it is necessary to say rather the former head, because we do not think that in the near future there will be negotiations between Russia and Ukraine, especially led by Medinsky, with such and such friends!
Golushko and Medinsky shone together dozens, if not hundreds of times – both at official and official events – in the Omsk region, in Moscow and even in those same Cannes.
And these are not just some kind of working acquaintances through the state line – they are literally raised their children togetherat least according to Golushko himself.
Medinsky’s position on the war in Ukraine is even embarrassing to somehow voice […].
Around the same place is the second best friend of Golushko – director Nikita Mikhalkov, who has recently been known for his mind-blowing fantasies about reptilians in his Besogon program.
Their relationship is more than warm – in addition to participating in the festival in Cannes, the Golushko family constantly visited the Mikhalkov mansion, and went on vacation together many times.
But you know, it would be wrong to build an opinion about a person and his position on the basis of his friends. Let’s look at the opinion of Golushko himself and his public statements.
Of course, as a senator of the Federation Council Golushko voted for the annexation of Crimea and personally welcomed Sergei Aksenov as head: and the adoption of a new senator from the Crimea. Current President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko he publicly called the drunk and even more offensive words, apparently believing in his impunity.
Why Ukraine – even about the President of the United States Obama he also managed to express himself in an extremely incorrect form. […]
Let’s go back to the Cote d’Azur to Villa Golushko. Maybe we are lucky and we will see Andrei Ivanovich himself there?
Unfortunately no. But we noticed some movement near the pool. But this is clearly not the owner of the house himself, a female figure.
The girl clearly does not look like a maid or other servant. Apparently, we were lucky to meet another co-owner of the house – the daughter of Andrey Golushko, Maria Kapt-Golushko.
As we said before, Maria is also a former official who fired from the Ministry of Culture just for the fact that she did not declare foreign property.
To be fair, we couldn’t find any information on Maria’s position on the war. Perhaps she is neutral, like her husband, Swiss citizen Anthony Kapt. She may not even support the war after all – by studying her open social networks in the same way as her father, we found out that she used to support and retweet Alexei Navalny.
But let’s be frank – Maria has only a formal relation to this house, and it was clearly bought with the money of her father, Andrei Golushko, because she was only 17 years old when she bought the house in 2005.
Of course, we remember that children should not be responsible for the sins of their fathers. Andrei Golushko himself must bear responsibility for his words, deeds and position.
Let’s hope Maria (if it’s her) said hello to him – because she obviously noticed our shooting. Let’s recap. Andrey Golushko spent years pretending to be a patriot who opposes the evil NATO, but at the same time raking in billions from the pockets of Omsk residents.
When the situation smelled of fried Golushko, as they say, he left the radar and left Russia, apparently with all the stolen money. Where he is now is unknown, but his family is actively settling in a house that only he himself could pay for. […]
@kaktovottak, 03/25/2022 02:54 PM: Children of United Russia ex-State Duma deputy Andrei Glushko continue to use the arrested apartment. Yandex revealed the fact…
The former deputy Andrey Golushko is in the focus of negative attention. This typical United Russia party bought himself an elite apartment within walking distance of the Moscow Kremlin for only 200 million rubles. Last year, due to tax fraud, the Prosecutor General’s Office seized the property and forbade living in it. However, for some reason, United Russia does not care about such restrictions.
Glushko gave the Moscow apartment at the disposal of his youngest daughter Alena, who loves expensive restaurant food. Still would. She works in the presidential administration, why not afford to spend 300,000 rubles each. a year for food delivery only. The husband of Golushko’s eldest daughter, Anatoly Kapt, often visits the arrested apartment. Apparently, in the parliamentary family there are difficulties with understanding the prohibitions. And what kind of prohibitions can there be when your daughter works in the AP … – Sidebar K.ru
