As it became known to the Cheka-OGPU, the Chief Military Prosecutor made a submission to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu after checking the situation with the construction of military facilities. The GWP notes that at present more than 1.5 thousand contracts (83%) of the total number have not been executed, among them contracts for the construction of especially significant objects of nuclear deterrence systems, missile attack warning, a unified space system, etc. During the year while the SVO is underway, the number of criminal cases related to the theft of budget funds allocated for the construction of defense facilities has almost doubled (from 66 to 107). The business damage has increased. According to the court decision, enterprises that received budgetary funds and did not fulfill their obligations must return 186 billion rubles to the Ministry of Defense, but paid only 1.3 billion rubles in 2022.

VChK-OGPU continues to acquaint readers with the documents of the “North Military District business plan”. The oligarch Konstantin Malofeev and the acting head of the DPR Denis Pushilin came up with and submitted to the Presidential Administration a business scheme, thanks to which their company should get six large metallurgical enterprises, including Azovstal, a plant literally drowned in blood. Against the backdrop of the confiscation of “personal” funds, Konstantin Malofeev stepped up not only his public statements, but also non-public agreements. During his last visit to Moscow, the acting head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin, knocked on the thresholds of the Presidential Administration, proving the importance and significance of the creation of the “Russian Volunteer Corps”. We saw the result of this on February 4 in Mariupol, when Konstantin Valerievich personally announced the creation of the aforementioned corps, but under the name “Russian Volunteer Corps”, since the Presidential Administration considered it unnecessary to focus on nationality. But there is something that Konstantin Valerievich did not publicly declare. We are talking about a petition for the transfer of industrial enterprises of the DPR to external management of Technological Investments LLC. The need for such a solution is justified by the goal of ensuring stable operation and loading of enterprises. In fact, this project provides for the successful development of partnership relations between Malofeev and Pushilin.

Rescuers of the Ministry of Emergency Situations hastily left Turkey and Syria in order to have time to hold a final collegium and go to the All-Russian conference of the Russian Emergencies Ministry “Russian Ice”. The event is scheduled for tomorrow at the Vytegra Arctic Rescue Training and Research Center. This time it will take place without the first deputy Alexander Chupriyan. From today he is on vacation. Old-timers say that none of the team of Sergei Shoigu is left in the department. Experienced rescuers have been replaced by young, active and commercially oriented ones. With the advent of Alexander Kurenkov to the post of Minister, Ms. Milskaya began to be seen more and more often in the central office of the department. Yelena Igorevna is present at interdepartmental meetings of the Ministry of Emergency Situations on behalf of the obscure National Center for Assistance to Missing and Injured Children, whose executive director is Ekaterina, the daughter of Senator Yelena Mizulina. According to the source, Milskaya, the wife of the current Minister of Emergency Situations, is the president of the Archangel Michael Foundation, the chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Safe Internet League, and some time ago led the St. Basil the Great Foundation. All of these organizations are affiliated with the Orthodox oligarch Konstantin Malofeev. Employees of the central office are watching with interest how the history of the glorious ministry will end.

The VChK-OGPU continues to study materials about the alleged extortion from the head of Rostec, Sergei Chemezov, by subordinates of Ksenia Sobchak. Here is Chemezov’s statement, here is the decision to recognize him as a victim. And you will not find a mandatory interrogation of Chemezov as a victim. The GSU of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation for Moscow decided not to disturb so many “respected” people and described the experiences of the head of Rostec from the words of his assistant Brovko and security guard Boldukhaev. As already reported by the Cheka-OGPU, the investigators did not interrogate Ksenia Sobchak either. Such is the consequence in the spirit: “What do you want …”

Sources of the Cheka-OGPU said that a large-scale offensive by Russian troops could begin at the end of February. At the same time, there is an urgent search for replenishment, including among veterans-Heroes of Russia. According to the interlocutors, units are being prepared for an offensive in the Donetsk direction, Kharkov and Belarus. Part of the MTR employees were announced the place of assembly – the city of Kursk, where the soldiers of the special forces should arrive by February 27. In addition, the veteran organization of the GRU spetsnaz reported insistent requests to return to the ranks of the honored military, who in recent years have nothing to do with the armed forces. For example, several Heroes of Russia who went to civilian life at once received offers to “fight for the Motherland.”

Law enforcement agencies are conducting a preliminary audit of the activities of the Khanty-Mansiysk LLC “Vtorresurs” (TIN 8622013666). The founder and CEO, Sergey Sergeevich Astashov, managed to increase the company’s revenue by 1093% in just a year (exceeded 600 million rubles), providing, as operatives suggest, fake services for the disposal of drill cuttings at oil and gas fields in the YaNAO and Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. At the same time, instead of real neutralization, all drilling waste (due to the mythical “technology” by mixing with clay) “turns” into building mixtures. However, instead of intended use in the national economy, they are sent for disposal in sludge pits. According to the available information, behind Sergei Astshov Jr. is his father, Astashov Sergey Grigoryevich, who actively hides behind his personal and close relations with the State Secretary of the FSB A.N. Kupryazhkin, thanks to which he easily receives contracts in LUKOIL, Novatek and subsidiaries of Rosneft.

The former head of the OFAS for the Leningrad Region, Alexei Pleteshkov, is a well-known figure in the region. He headed the regional antimonopoly agency from 2014 to 2021. This time was a golden time for corrupt contractors – in the Leningrad region there was a well-functioning scheme for distributing state orders. All relatively large purchases (over 30 million rubles) were carried out only through the regional State Order Committee. Alternately replacing each other, but all the chairmen of this committee close to Governor Drozdenko: Andrey Klementyev, Andrey Nizovsky, Denis Tolstykh ensured that only specific contractors won for any purchase. It is clear that the dissatisfied turned to the OFAS and there they ran into Pleteshkov, who was included in this scheme. According to local businessmen, the antimonopoly department of the Leningrad region did not interfere even in egregious cases. When Pleteshkov left his post, everyone involved was wondering about his imminent appointment to another government post. Few doubted that the increase would take place. After all, Alexei is very close to the family of the co-owner of the Linos gas station network, billionaire Vladimir Gurevich. And now, a year and a half later, the appointment was insisted – colleagues reported that Alexei Gurevich headed two joint-stock companies in the Yaroslavl region. These societies… manage the local baths. As one of the interlocutors of the Cheka-OGPU explained, such a kind of career downshifting is associated with the sudden death in March last year of Vladimir Gurevich, who for several years had problems both with business and with law enforcement officers … Pleteshkov, who was waiting for the appointment “just about” didn’t wait for him. I had to go, as they say, at least somewhere. True, not everything is so bad for Alexei. Colleagues report that the previous director of one of the aforementioned enterprises is already on trial for accepting bribes of 3.5 million rubles. For Yaroslavl, not so little money.

The arrest of Tokarev is not the first one connected with the long-suffering construction. In 2019, in a departmental parking lot near the old building of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Yaroslavl Region in the center of Yaroslavl, Yevgeny Terekhov, deputy head of the logistics department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, was red-handed while receiving a bribe. He received a total of more than 9 million rubles. from a representative of the general contractor and in 2020 was sentenced to seven and a half years in a strict regime.
