As Kommersant learned, in the alleged organized crime group of fraudsters under the leadership of the head of the banking department of the K department of the FSB of the Russian Federation, Kirill Cherkalin, there was a woman - director general of Bor Reconstruction LLC Elena Glazkova. Unlike her accomplices, Chekists, she managed to hide and is now on the international wanted list. According to the Investigative Committee of Russia, the group specialized in embezzlement of funds received from the sale of housing in elite metropolitan new buildings, and acted on an unprecedented scale, kidnapping entire high-rise buildings.
According to the Investigative Committee of Russia (ICR), at least two large businessmen who invested in the construction of residential buildings in the capital under contracts with the Moscow government became victims of fraudsters. One of them is co-owner of the group of companies LLC Avenue Group Sergey Glyadelkin. The construction companies included in his holding in 2007-2010 built up a site in the Moscow region Levoberezhny, which was freed up after the demolition of the Khrushchev. According to the concluded investment contract, LLC “Urpromkonsalting” (UPC), in which Mr. Glyadelkin owned only 49% of the shares, was sold apartments in a new residential complex consisting of three 22-story and two 16-story towers. The remaining shares in the company, according to the investigation, belonged to the former top managers of JSCB AKF Eurofinance Mosnarbank Vladimir Stolyarenko and Alexander Bondarenko, who served as president and vice president of the bank, respectively.
The bankers, according to the investigation, decided to take possession of half of the property of UPC belonging to their partner, on the accounts of which by that time significant funds had been accumulated from the sale of apartments in Levoberezhnoye. The exact amount of the stolen remains to be calculated, however, according to the victim, it was at least 1 billion rubles, which the company received for several hundred apartments sold in 120, bldg. 3; d 124, building 3; 128, building 2; d. 130, bldg. 1 and d. 130, bldg. 3 along the Leningrad highway in Moscow. Half of this money was supposed to go to the co-owner Glyadelkin LLC.
Gentlemen Stolyarenko and Bondarenko, according to the TFR, maintained informal contacts with some FSB officers, and the latter even consisted of a public council under the special services, so the bankers privately discussed the plan with their friends in uniform and enlisted their support. So, according to the TFR, at the very beginning of 2011, an organized criminal group was formed, focused on committing especially large thefts (part 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) using "official position, operational capabilities and authority of the special services."
The Chekists approached businessman Glyadelkin through his colleague, Andrei Vasiliev, Colonel of the K Department of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, who oversees the financial and banking sectors. He was familiar with Sergey Glyadelkin thanks to another criminal case in which the Chekist carried out operational support, and the businessman acted in the same role as the victim.
According to the concluded investment agreement with the Moscow government, the BR left 55 apartments, 107 cars and 2.2 thousand square meters in it. m of non-residential premises worth "more than 1 billion rubles." The exact figure will again be determined by the TFR after conducting relevant examinations. LLC Director General Elena Glazkova, according to the case file, according to a well-known scheme, decided to steal the property of the company, owned by one of its founders, Vladimir Simonenkov, who owns a 49% stake in the BR. At the same time, Elena Glazkova, who performs organizational and managerial functions in the company, according to the investigation, did not come up with complex schemes. She simply removed co-founder Vladimir Simonenkov from the management of the LLC, saying that he allegedly left the business, did not appear at the meetings of the company for five years and, moreover, has been conducting separate negotiations with the “main competitor” of the BR, his friend Sergei Glyadelkin.
While Mr. Simonenkov was looking for the truth in arbitration courts of various levels, Elena Glazkova, as the investigation believes, made “fictitious transactions” by selling all the space belonging to the BR in the Novy Arbat 27 residential complex to affiliates at a reduced price. According to the TFR, the Director General directed the proceeds to repay BR's non-existent payables. After all these manipulations in the fall of 2017, the company was declared bankrupt, and its CEO fled abroad. Like two former bankers, she was wanted.
Meanwhile, according to a statement by Vladimir Simonenkov, the investigative department of the Internal Affairs Directorate in the Central District of Moscow opened a criminal case, but it was investigated, to put it mildly, slowly. In any case, checking the results of the work done, the acting head of the Investigation Department for Investigating Critical Cases of the Investigative Committee, Nikolai Ushchapovsky, noted that the police investigation did not have any detainees, the accused, or any property that was arrested as a security measure.
Meanwhile, in the opinion of General Ushchapovsky, it directly followed from the materials of both criminal cases that “fraudulent actions in them were interconnected and committed during the implementation of a single complex of investment programs,” and the founders and heads of the same organizations appear in them. The chief of the central board ultimately reasonably suggested that both crimes were committed by members of the same group. In this regard, he decided to seize the materials from the police and combine both episodes of the alleged fraud in one criminal case, which is now being investigated by the TFR.
