In addition to a lot of money and a collection of expensive watches that law enforcement officers found during searches of the head of the department of customs inquiry of the Federal Customs Service, Alexander Kizlyk, journalists found him an expensive apartment in the center of Moscow. Such housing, like other movable and immovable property, he could hardly buy, living on a salary. And apparently, the arrested general was collecting his wealth, starting with a service in the prosecutor’s office, where he was even “shone” as the prosecutor of the capital.

A wealthy robbery specialist

The fact that Alexander Kizlyk during the searches found € 600 thousand, $ 600 thousand, as well as gold bars and watches of luxury brands, it became known even before his official arrest.

Later, Open Media reporters discovered his apartment was 132 square meters. m in the house number 5 on Prospect Mira in the center of Moscow. Currently, its exact cost is difficult to establish, however, judging by the advertisements for the sale of similar apartments in the same house, it costs about 50 million rubles.

According to the Unified State Register of Real Estate, Kizlyk bought this apartment in 2001, having moved to the capital from Ryazan. There, since 1996, he headed the regional prosecutor's office.

According to, having moved to Moscow, Kizlyk until 2007 was the head of the Main Directorate for the Supervision of the Procedural Activities of the Prosecutor’s Office, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Drug Control Service, the Federal Customs Service and the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, almost becoming a Moscow prosecutor.

A detained general is a candidate of law. At one time, the current honored lawyer of Russia defended his thesis on the topic “Armed robbery: criminological and criminal law aspects”.

Thus, the holder of the Order of Honor and the holder of the badge "Excellent worker of the customs service" for all his years of work was not seen in any profitable business.

It is impossible to say how much Kizlyk officially earned in previous decades, since civil servants were obliged to publish declarations of income and property only since 2009. “According to the declaration for 2018, the general earned 3.3 million last year. That is, if he bought this apartment now, he would have to pay 15 of his annual income for it,” Open Media said, noting that wife Elena, according to the same declaration, owns a house with an area of ​​458.2 square meters. m, 24 acres of land and a bath area of ​​112 square meters. m

According to the telegram channel "Toad and Viper", the estate is located in Mytishchi and its total cost is about 70-100 million rubles. In addition, the FCS General presented his daughter Marina after graduating from Mercedes University, the cost of which is comparable to his annual income.

Recall that the son of the arrested general Mikhail, who works as a Moscow official, owns an expensive Porsche Macan car for 5 million rubles, and is also associated with the capital's vice mayor Maxim Liksutov and billionaires Andrei Bokarev and Iskander Makhmudov.

Obstacle Eliminated

The version that the removal of Kizlyk from the FCS is primarily a clan struggle is confirmed by new information from telegram channels. According to the Cherkalin told telegram channel, part of the hours went to the general after a case against the companies of businessman Sergei Safonichev, who was arrested by his subordinates from the FCS inquiry department.

According to the telegram channel of the VChK-OGPU, Safonichev has long been under the roof of the solver Valery Bitaev. And it was Bitaev who covered him through the FSB, the Prosecutor General, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and in the courts. “Only through the FCS Bitaev could not establish a normal cover for Safonichev - things constantly appeared, goods were delayed, etc. The main headache was the head of the FCS department, General Alexander Kizlyk, ”the telegram channel writes, recalling that Kizlyk was a protege of the former head of the FCS, Andrei Belyaninov.

Therefore, the situation has not changed, even with the advent of Oleg Gubaidulin, the deputy head of customs, who came from the FSB FSB, friend of the head of the K Department of the FSB of the Russian Federation, Ivan Tkachev, and the former head of the FSB FSB of the Russian Federation, Oleg Feoktistov. Kizlyk remained an obstacle, with Belyaninov behind him. “As a result, Kizlyk, a special services soldier, ended up in jail. One obstacle has become less for Gubaidulin, Tkachev, Bitaev and Safonichev, who he takes care of, ”the Cheka-OGPU points out.

Recall that the investigation against Kizlyk began with the FSB being detained several months ago for bribing an employee of one of the police units of the USB. Allegedly, it was through him that the FSB officers reached the 35-year-old deputy head of the department of internal security of the transport administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Central Federal District Nina Salnikov, after whose testimony the investigation had questions to Kizlyk and Serebro, as well as representatives of Vnukovo and Domodedovo customs.
