Sergey Melikov kept good
Family Sergei Melikov owns property worth 250 million rubles in Moscow: investigation of “Accents” showedwhere and how the head of Dagestan hides assets that he officially cannot afford. It is known that in two years of work, the head of the republic, Sergei Melikov, did not acquire any real estate in the region. Sergei Alimovich does not even have a service apartment in Makhachkala. On the other hand, apartments in Moscow on Novy Arbat, 27 are decorated for his wife.
This is an elite residential complex in the center of the capital. The window overlooks the Government House, the Moscow River and the Foreign Ministry building. Housing area – 195.7 sq. m., the approximate value of the asset is 180 million rubles. To buy such an apartment, taking into account the income of Mr. Melikov from work as a plenipotentiary, in the National Guard and as head of Dagestan, Sergei Alimovich would have to save up for about 50 years. And his wife, Galina Anatolyevna, who has worked as a doctor all her life, even longer.
Probably, the sale of old capital assets helped Melikov buy a new living space – in 2015, the current governor got rid of two apartments in Maryino (Perervinsky Boulevard), as a result of which the official’s annual income jumped by 25 million. But even so, the math is shaping up in favor of the Dagestan governor. Moreover, for some reason, the wife of Sergei Alimovich continues to pay for the Internet in the sold housing. This raises some questions about the deal.
No less questions about the property of the couple in Balashikha. There, when Sergei Melikov had just become plenipotentiary in the North Caucasus, he built himself a house with an area of 167.6 square meters. m on a plot of 1725 “squares”. Places for one building with a margin, so next to the official declared housing another house was built, which for some reason is not in the declaration, just as there is no other house of the governor, located in the same place, in Balashikha, in the Nikolsko-Arkhangelsk microdistrict.
By an interesting coincidence, Melikov’s former colleague in the National Guard, ex-deputy director of the department for logistics Sergei Mileiko sits in a criminal case on fraud with departmental non-residential property, which is located precisely in Balashikha. The wife of Comrade Melikov earned money by opening a hairdressing salon in a government building. Despite the fact that in court Melikov defended Mileiko, the latter was found guilty, stripped of his rank and sent to a colony for six years. It is believed that the patron of Mileiko in the service was it is the current head of Dagestan.
Returning to the property, one cannot fail to mention the transport owned by the governor’s family. Melikov owns a Lexus LX 570, worth from ₽10 million, and his wife, a doctor, has two garages. Two garages per family, which officially only has one car, albeit an expensive one, this is rather strange. It turned out that Galina Anatolyevna not only pays for the Internet in the sold housing and owns garages in the absence of a personal car, but also insures cars that do not belong to her. For example, “Accents” found out that the wife of Sergei Melikov cares about the safety of the expensive Range Rover Sport, which is not officially recorded on her.
In total, the value of the listed assets may exceed ₽250 million, with Melikov’s official annual income (over 2021) 2,968,625 rubles 67 kopecks and 1,118,281 rubles 57 kopecks from his wife for the same period.
Where does the head of the republic get the money for luxury, one can only guess. However, against the background of this situation, the friendship of the governor’s son Mikhail with a certain Amir Abdullaev, the son of the “king of state orders” of Dagestan, the founder of Dorstroyinvest LLC and JSC Tabasaranskoye DEP No. 33, Esedulla Abdullaev, looks quite interesting. The first organization earned more than ₽3.5 billion on contracts from the government of the republic, and the second – more than ₽500 million. Reducing the variables, it turns out that more than ₽4 billion from the regional budget went to the companies of the father of a friend of the son Melikov. Moreover, the same father, Esedulla Veliyullaevich, was a deputy of the municipal assembly of the Tabasara region, and his brother Asret heads the Khapilsky village council. At the same time, Mr. Melikov claimsthat there is no clan system in the republic.
Dried apricots in the administration offices, apparently, is also considered a delicacy. Otherwise, how would the authorities have allocated 17,000 from the budget for just one set of tea, dried apricots, honey and sherbet. If you, Sergey Alimovich, are too lazy to go to the market, then use the Internet, which is paid for by the Dagestanis. See how much your gifts are really worth.
Melikov was also going to give Untsukul vases. Maybe that’s why it’s so expensive? No, vases are not even made of crystal, but of wood. And they cost an average of 4 thousand rubles. They cost ordinary people, but for the governor’s team – many times more expensive. You still don’t have to pay out of your own pocket.
But how happy those who will be presented with gubernatorial gifts at the event in honor of Rasul Gamzatov will be. And Melikov, as usual, will make a pathetic speech about the great son of the Dagestan land. And he won’t even blush when he remembers how much budget money has been spent on just one tea.
