As Open Media found out, having read the letter of the supervisory authority, the notification from Roskomnadzor, which was sent to Transparency International - R, does not disclose exactly how this person is connected with Dom.RF. The name of the author of the appeal is also not indicated in the materials of the RKN. The interlocutor of Open Media in Dom.RF insists that the company has nothing to do with this appeal.
“Roskomnadzor received an appeal from a citizen on the issue of a possible violation of the Federal Law“ On Personal Data ”, expressed in the posting on the website of information containing personal data of employees of JSC“ Dom.RF ”, without their respective consent. In the course of consideration by Roskomnadzor of the arguments specified in the appeal, the fact of the presence on the above website of information containing personal data of employees (last name, first name, patronymic, position, information about income) was confirmed, ”the document says. The letter specifies that earlier the NPO refused to delete the "unlawfully placed personal data", because of which a protocol will be drawn up - the organization faces a fine of up to 45,000 rubles.
Roskomnadzor did not respond to the request of Open Media at the time of publication of the text. The press service of "Dom.RF" refused to comment on the news about the organization's appeal with the requirement to remove the declarations, citing "the right of employees to protect personal data."
Transparency International - R spoke about the regulator's demand on Wednesday, September 25. “Removal of previously published anti-corruption declarations contradicts the spirit, meaning and public significance of the Declarator project. The declarations were created to increase the transparency of government and public organizations, as well as to counter unjust enrichment. Achievement of these goals is possible only by storing declarations for the maximum period of time and bringing data from them in a simple and visual form, ”the organization noted.
According to the lawyer of Roskomsvoboda, Sarkis Darbinyan, Roskomnadzor misses the essence of legal relations in terms of protecting privacy and believes that the publication of declarations requires the consent of the object of the document, although we are talking about the disclosure of data in connection with the requirement of federal laws.
“It is necessary to proceed from international practice that the private life of an official should be protected less than the activities and lives of ordinary people, especially if this information concerns professional activities, and in this case we are talking about the activities of the management of a state company,” says Darbinyan. Lawyers for Roskomsvoboda volunteered to defend Transparency and plan to appeal the decision of Roskomnadzor.
Since January 2020, Dom.RF has been headed by Vitaly Mutko, former deputy chairman of the government for construction and regional development. The joint-stock company is the operator of preferential state mortgages, controls and forms regional development projects and provides the regional authorities with federal lands to solve the problems of equity holders.
The declarations that Roskomnadzor demands to be removed were submitted by the management of Dom.RF (formerly the Agency for Housing Mortgage Lending) from 2013 to 2017. According to the head of the Declarator project, Andrey Zhvirblis, earlier Dom.RF removed the declarations from its website, although the federal law “On Combating Corruption” requires keeping them published throughout the agency's existence. “We still have all the direct URLs from where we downloaded the declarations, now there is nothing on these links,” Zhvirblis told Open Media.
Zhvirblis noted that after 2017, Dom.RF stopped publishing reports on the management's income altogether, which is also a violation of the Law on Combating Corruption. “The law says that organizations created on the basis of federal law or created to carry out tasks assigned to federal executive bodies must adhere to the same declaration system as state bodies. “Dom.RF” is on the list of such companies ”, - noted Zhvirblis.
The press service of Dom.RF explained that they removed the declarations previously published on the website, because the organization's management is not obliged to publish the declarations in open sources: “There is no statutory obligation to post them on the Internet, JSC Dom.RF earlier disclosed them voluntarily "
In 2015, on the basis of the joint-stock company, a single development institute in the housing sector was created. Along with the reorganization of AHML, the management changed, Alexander Plutnik was appointed General Director, from 2008 to 2013 he worked as an assistant and then Deputy Head of the Secretariat of First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, who now heads Vnesheconombank. From 2015 to 2017, four people reported on income - the general director, two deputies and the chief accountant. In 2015, another deputy general director Sergey Kuznetsov, who soon left this position, also filed a declaration.
Open Media drew attention to the fact that from 2015 to 2017, the salaries of some of the leaders of Dom.RF increased more than 20 times. So, the former CEO Plutnik himself in 2015 declared 12 million rubles, two apartments and one car, in 2016 there are already 101.2 million rubles and three cars, and in 2017 - 255.1 million rubles, ten apartments, six of which recorded for a child, and three cars.
Deputy General Director Artem Fedorko in 2015 declared 47.1 million rubles, and in 2017 his income increased to 187.1 million.Another Deputy General Director Denis Filippov in two years was able to increase his income more than 17 times: 8.5 million rubles - in 2015, 142.1 million rubles - in 2017. Both members of the management are still working at Dom.RF.
In February 2020, LIFE journalists found Alexander Plutnik's estate with vineyards and olive groves in the Italian resort of Roccamare worth about 265 million rubles. Italian real estate is registered with Daria Plutnik, Alexander's wife. She owns a 9.9% stake in the authorized capital of the Italian farm Pian Di Rocca S.R.L. Societa Agricola ("Agricultural enterprise in Pian di Rocca") - the estate is recorded on the balance sheet of this legal entity. The rest is owned by the British company Fiduserv Limited, which is engaged in trust services for someone else's business.
