Another wave of searches covered the administration of the Vsevolozhsk district. Investigators came to the soul of the deputy head of the district – Nikolai Karetkin. But as they say, the goal is not him, but the head Andrey Nizovsky, a man from the team of the governor of the Leningrad region Drozdenko.
“Cascade” of criminal cases
Starting in 2021, the power circles of the Leningrad region suffered a series of major arrests. They seized all the officials, one way or another involved in the construction and the Fund for the Protection of Shareholders of the Leningrad Region. As many as six major functionaries were in cells and under arrest. Like us already wrotethis is how the trend announced at the beginning of the prosecutor’s office is realized Sergei Zhukovskywho promised Prosecutor General Krasnov to quickly deal with all the unfinished projects in the region.
Scandals, searches and arrests will soon become commonplace in the Vsevolozhsk region. Here everything revolves around the land and construction. So this time, the investigative-operational group sent their stops straight to the district administration. UBEP employees came to the soul of officials to deal with the long-term construction of the Yaninsky Cascade (completion date December 2022). Let us mention that this unfinished construction, just the same, is included in the list of phantom pains of Governor Drozdenko.
The investigators were interested in the acts of inspections of the developer A-Lex LLC. Documents relating to the acquisition and leasing of a land plot for the construction of the specified residential complex were seized (for example, a lease agreement of 2015). Following the papers, the personal file of the former deputy head of administration left for the UBEP Nikolai Karetkin.
The focus is pretty primitive. The investigation needs information on exactly when the district administration, according to the developer, should have renewed the lease agreement for the very land plot on which the unfinished residential complex is quietly crumbling. In addition, the investigation and operatives will have to figure out all the judicial somersaults that ended in the procedural defeat of the administration of the Vsevolozhsk district. Simplifying – to understand who is right, who is wrong and why the construction is worth it.
Pepper gives this search a personality trait Nikolai Karetkin. The fact is that he is practically a confidant of the head of the district Andrey Nizovskya person from the inner circle of the governor Alexandra Drozdenko.
Information from Kompromat Group:
The construction of the residential complex “Yaninsky cascade” in 2015 was started by CJSC “IK” Construction Management “. The developer did not master the project, and in 2019 the company was declared bankrupt, at the time of the financial collapse, the assets of the CJSC went negative by 300 million rubles. A year after the bankruptcy, the Fund for the Protection of Shareholders of the Leningrad Region undertook to complete the construction of the facility. Almost 230 million rubles were allocated for completion.
Search of times
Now the lasso of consequence has turned to the side Andrey Nizovsky. In the beau monde of the region, he is considered almost the future successor to Drozdenko. That is why a card with a corruption tinge has now been played. The investigators came to Karetkin with very clear questions about construction and property. The security forces know what to ask, because Nikolai Yuryevich, once served as deputy head of the land supervision department of the Rosreestr Office for the Leningrad Region.
By the way, the latter showed remarkable intelligence and speed, quitting a week before the visit of the security forces, and now he disappeared into the thick fogs of the Leningrad region.
Now the investigation begins the most exciting stage of work – the search and chase.
In parallel with the power ballet, a new Fronde game debuted in the political enfilades of the government of the Leningrad Region. It is called “Review of a possible successor to the head of the Leningrad region.” Among the possible candidates for the post of head of the 47th region, they name the vice-governor of St. Petersburg Valeria Pikalevahead of the Vsevolozhsk administration Andrey Nizovskyand ex-Governor of the Oryol Region, Deputy Presidential Envoy to the Northwestern Federal District Vadim Potomsky.
However, the antique backstage choir did the last two a disservice. For several days now, an interested audience has been discussing an embarrassment – the same people promised Potomsky and Nizovsky the post of governor of the region. The geniuses of this patronage are not yet named on the sidelines, but they are hinting at a number of major construction players in the region. As for the background of this story, the opinions of insiders differ.
Governor Drozdenko, in such a scandalous story (despite the fact that the whole power serpentarium is now staring at him), demonstrates the full presence of mind. However, the figure of Drozdenko, already bitten by all possible large and small fish of political waters, has a chance to get out for a quiet retirement. If a person loyal to him turns out to be the successor.
According to the first version, Nizovsky is the most convenient person for Drozdenko, who knows with what reference points to build his plastic discourse. According to the second version, Drozdenko himself could, through proxies, try to put straws on himself, in case the investigation throws its lasso to the faithful Nizovsky. The rear cannot be exposed, so Potomsky may also be a likely successor. Version three – voicing the scandal can be a red herring. And this means that Drozdenko, even under pressure from the security forces, has a fallback option.
So far, the last act of this entertaining political-criminal drama has not yet been played out. But it can be said with absolute certainty that the Vsevolozhsky District will soon face creative changes, both personnel and property. All without exception with a criminal connotation.
