A trio of judges of the Meshchansky District Court of Moscow announced the verdict in a high-profile criminal case against the brothers Ziyavudin and Magomed Magomedov, as well as their alleged accomplices. They were found guilty of organizing a criminal community, the structural units of which the investigation, the prosecutor's office, and then the judges named the companies that are part of the Summa group. The main defendants, for whom the prosecution requested more than 20 years, were sentenced by the court to 19 and 18 years with a fine of 2.5 million rubles.
A trio of judges led by Olesya Mendeleva, who began to announce the verdict in a high-profile case a week ago, eventually came to the conclusion that Ziyavudin Magomedov and his older brother, ex-senator Magomed Magomedov, were guilty of all the crimes that they were charged with by the investigative department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. First of all, this is the organization of a criminal community (Article 210 of the Criminal Code), as well as the fraud and embezzlement committed by them on an especially large scale (Part 4 of Article 159 and Part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code). In addition, Magomedov Sr. was recognized as a participant in the illegal circulation of two pistols (Article 222 of the Criminal Code), which, according to him, were premium pistols. “Summa”, – companies “Inteks” Artur Maksidov, JSC “United Grain Company” (OZK) Sergey Polyakov, head of the department of economic security of the OZK Roman Gribanov and general director of the enterprise “Energiya-M” Yuri Petrov – were convicted of participation in the OPS and commission of other crimes in its composition.
The court sentenced Ziyavudin Magomedov to 19 years of strict regime, recovering from him a fine of 2.5 million rubles. In addition, the businessman was deprived of the Orders of Friendship and Honor. The court sentenced Magomed Magomedov to 18 years in prison with the same fine as his brother. Artur Maksidov and Sergei Polyakov were given 12 years each, Roman Gribanov – 10 years, and Yuri Petrov received seven years. In addition, they will have to pay from 700 thousand to 1.5 million rubles as fines. The state prosecution, represented in the process by the Prosecutor General's Office, requested for the defendants from 8 to 24 years old. The longest sentence was for Ziyavudin Magomedov, and his brother was 21 years old.
According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, while implementing various projects, including participating in the construction of stadiums for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Summa stole more than 11 billion rubles, including through the use of cheaper materials, such as sand.
As a result, the court, following the Ministry of Internal Affairs, established the involvement of the defendants in the case in the theft:
RUB 5.4 billion during the construction of the railway line Kyzyl-Kuragino;
752.9 million rubles. in the course of preparatory work during the construction of the Kaliningrad stadium for the World Cup and 2.1 billion rubles. for the same work for Gazprom Arena in St. Petersburg;
874.6 million rubles allocated by FGC UES for the purchase of equipment for its supply to substations and high-voltage lines under construction;
1.2 billion rub. during the reconstruction of Khrabrovo airport in the Kaliningrad region;
as well as to the conclusion of “imaginary” OZK transactions with the Newbay Investments LP company controlled by the OPS participants for $ 20.2 million, or 613.7 million rubles.
The victims filed claims against the defendants for a total of 9 billion rubles, but they were only partially satisfied. In favor of JSC FGC UES, 874.6 million rubles were recovered, OZK – 613.7 million rubles. and the Committee for the Development of Transport Infrastructure of St. Petersburg – 2.1 billion rubles. The claim of the Prosecutor General's Office, which represented the interests of the other victims, for 5.8 billion rubles. transferred to civil proceedings.
We note that earlier, at the suit of the Prosecutor General's Office, $ 750 million was recovered from the Magomedov brothers, proceeds from the sale of 50.1% of the shares of the Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port by Transneft, and because of the announcement of the verdict Hearings on another prosecutor's claim for $150 million were postponed.
The defense is going to appeal the verdict, considering it illegal and unfounded.
210 of the Criminal Code. According to the changes adopted in the legislation, enterprises recognized as part of the OPS must be created to commit crimes, and the legal entities that were part of the Summa appeared and functioned successfully several years before the creation of the proposed community. The defenders also note that there was no point in committing theft, since legal business brought enterprises controlled by the Magomedov brothers up to 100 billion rubles. profit annually.
