A close relative of Bezgin, to whom he transferred housing after the annexation of Crimea, turned out to be a member of the pro-Putin “United Russia”. and the figure of the “Peacemaker” base
Aunt – a Putinist and member of the State Duma of Crimea, and the nephew represents the pro-government “Servant of the People” in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. And this – not the script of the new series, but the real facts of the biography of People's Deputy Vitaly Bezgin. Journalists decided to find out why Bezgin was included in the sanctions list of the Russian Federation, and investigated the further fate of his apartment in Yevpatoria. But they found a lot of interesting.
Details of the journalistic investigation that led “StopCor” on Mr. Bezgin's native Crimean language – in material Artem Polikovsky.
Several years ago, People's Deputy from “Servant of the People” Vitaly Bezgin was included in the list of Ukrainians sanctioned by the Russian Federation. The parliamentarian was included in the "black list" rf is no accident, because he – Crimean by origin and had property on the annexed peninsula. We are talking about a part of an apartment in Yevpatoria.
However, according to the data of the registers, People's Deputy Bezgin prudently re-registered his share of housing to such Galina Gerasimov. According to the media, it – his native aunt, who after the occupation of Crimea received a Russian “Ausweiss”.
Moreover, the defector actively supported the aggressive policy of the Kremlin. Gerasimova's surname can be seen in the list of deputies of the so-called State Council of the Republic of Crimea of the 2nd convocation and among the members of the pro-Putin party “United Russia”. For such “activity” the woman was entered into the Ukrainian database “Peacemaker” as an accomplice of Russian terrorists.
According to “Peacemaker” data, in the 1990s, Galina Gerasimova was an economist at the “Planet” boarding house, and from 2000 to 2014 – Deputy Director of Commerce and Marketing. After the annexation of Crimea, she first became the director of a boarding house, and then headed the “Tourist Information Center”. and the so-called Municipal Autonomous Institution of Yevpatoria City District of the Republic of Crimea “Evpatoria Cultural and Ethnographic Center “Little Jerusalem”. And since 2020, she worked as the deputy head of the Committee for State Construction and Local Self-Government in the occupation parliament of the peninsula.
All this did not prevent Gerasimova from crossing the administrative border of the Republic of Crimea with the Kherson Region twice in 2018 – of course, with a Ukrainian passport. But the woman resold the Yevpatoria apartment according to Russian legislation. Vitaly Bezgin himself, whom the journalists tried to contact for a comment, has not yet responded to the calls and text messages of the media. officially became the wife of her countryman – businessman and deputy of the Mykolaiv Regional Council Yuriy Kormyshkin. It was to the family of Mr. Yuriy that the Gauleiter of the occupied part of the Kherson region Volodymyr Saldo at one time gave a boarding house on the coast of the Black Sea.
