Not less than 200 million rubles – this is how much “Chronicles” evaluate the property of the family of the head of Karelia Artur Parfenchikov. How could an official who devoted his whole life to civil service earn such money? There is no answer to this question yet, but you can take a closer look at the apartments of the Parfenchikov family.
Novaya Gazeta wrote that Parfenchikov provided apartments for the entire leadership of the Federal Bailiff Service (FSSP), which he once headed: employees were given subsidies, for which housing was purchased. Parfenchikov himself could have received the same subsidy, however, Novaya journalists note that the official did not reflect it in the income statement.
“Novaya Gazeta”, 01/18/2017, “Submit to the warrant”: In 2011, the chief bailiff Parfenchikov also decided his own housing problem – he wrote out a subsidy for housing in Moscow. […] Four-room apartment with a size of 159.3 sq. m, which was acquired by Arthur Parfenchikov, is located in an elite new house on the street. Composer, d. 17, near the Arbat. But the chief bailiff already had a “cloister” of 218.8 square meters. m, and his wife, now the Deputy Chairman of the Supreme Court of Karelia, has another “nest” of 69.1 sq. m. But these shelters are in Petrozavodsk, and since 2007 Parfenchikov has been in Moscow. Where to live a government official?
“But I actually lived in a hostel for six years and still live there,” Parfenchikov complained in February 2013 to one of his associates about the misunderstanding of ordinary subordinates, “without a family, my son grew up virtually without a father. And I didn’t give myself the right to a subsidy for six years. Well, okay, I perceive everything in my life as a blessing, so I have to endure it. Moreover, it should be noted that Parfenchikov complained at a time when repair work was already in full swing in his new apartment in the center of Moscow. What the chief bailiff of Russia considers a “dormitory” is a separate building in the Ershovo rest house, located in the former count’s estate of the Olsufievs near Zvenigorod.
In addition to separate apartments, Artur Olegovich had the opportunity to swim in the pool in the rest house, do fitness, play billiards and even shoot at the Voynushka paintball club. Even in Ershovo, the director of the Federal Bailiff Service of Russia Artur Parfenchikov arranged seminars-meetings with the deputy heads of the territorial bodies of the Federal Bailiff Service of Russia and the heads of anti-corruption units. Chief bailiff Parfenchikov systematically awarded the director of the Ershovo rest house with diplomas and medals … And then suddenly Parfenchikov calls the health resort, which has already become, one might say, a home for the director of the FSSP, a “hostel” … – Insert K.ru
In 2013-2021, Parfenchikov officially earned almost 70 million rubles., including almost 21 million rubles. on the lease of this Moscow apartment worth 115 million rubles, which he got in a not the most transparent way.
In addition, in 2017, Parfenchikov bought a 103-meter apartment in Petrozavodsk on the Varkaus embankment, where he still lives. Estimating the cost of this housing is not easy, since this house is small and apartments in it are rarely sold.
Anastasia’s brother Yaroslav is also the owner of Moscow real estate, although more modest: at the age of 18, he received a 75-meter apartment in the South Tushino district, in the Donelaitis passage. There is a similar apartment in this house now about 22.5 million rubles.
Get re-elected in a protest region
“I send a significant part of the money to charity. For all the time I spent on myself when I bought an apartment in Petrozavodsk. His money was not enough, he added from the proceeds from the rent. I give the rest to people, to those who need it, ”Parfenchikov said in one of the interview in 2017. About “needy” it is written above.
The head of Karelia Artur Parfenchikov is going to the election of the head of the region this year. He headed the republic in 2017 and in the same year was elected from United Russia. Of course, it is unpleasant for Parfenchikov to go to the polls, because back in 2006 he spoke, for example, for the replacement of direct elections of the mayor of Petrozavodsk by appointment. And in 2015 it happened – now the head of the capital of Karelia is elected by the city council, controlled by the United Russia. But the head of the region has, whatever one may say, to participate in what is called elections in Russia.
Parfenchikov dearly loves voters. For example, when in 2018 a local resident contacted him via the Internet and asked him to restore the work of a kindergarten in the village, the head of the region in a boorish manner answered herto solve their own problems. No, well, this is understandable, Parfenchikov’s well-being of his family and apartments is more important.
Naturally, on your page on Vkontakte Parfenchikov strongly supports the war with Ukraine. In Petrozavodsk, they even opened the street of the Defenders of Donbass. But most of all on Parfenchikov’s page are obituaries of young people who could have benefited Karelia, but died for the sake of Putin’s insane ambitions. Parfenchikov is not worried that young people are leaving the region to die, the head of Karelia does not call for peace. And in general, he got an unpleasant subject of the federation: in the last Duma elections, United Russia scored here one of the lowest percentages in the country.
Meanwhile, war is raging across the region. For example, Karelia leads, even according to pro-government ratings, a list of regions by the share of people’s expenses on housing and communal services. The state debt of the region is almost 20 billion rubles., 30% of all income. That is, Karelia strongly depends on the federal center.
What do we have in the dry residue? An official who has worked all his life in the civil service provided the family with assets of at least 200 million rubles – this is only the real estate that is listed above. Parfenchikov is not obliged to explain the origin of this money, because the Russian Federation has not ratified the article “On illicit enrichment” of the UN Convention against Corruption. Our country does not consider it a criminal offense when a civil servant cannot explain why his expenses exceed his income.
The Parfenchikov family spends most of their time in Moscow, not linking their future with Karelia. And their breadwinner is preparing to serve a second term at the head of one of the the poorest regions of the Northwest with sad prospects.
