Two days ago, a popular TV presenter Andrei Malakhov announced the wedding of the ex-chief of the property relations department of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, 39-year-old Evgeniya Vasilyeva and 56-year-old former defense minister Anatoly Serdyukov. When the wedding took place, it is not known, but, according to Malakhov, Serdyukov and Vasilyeva became the husband and wife only recently.
This couple gained fame in 2012, when a scandalous corruption scandal broke out, to which they became participants. Both left their posts, Vasilieva was convicted and even spent some time under house arrest and in a Moscow detention center, and then served a sentence in a colony in the Vladimir region. And so, when, it would seem, everyone forgot about this pair, they again became the heroes of the media.
Yevgenia Vasilieva, who graduated from St. Petersburg State University with a red diploma, in 2010 (and then she was 31 years old) became a member of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. Before that, she had worked as a realtor, legal adviser, general director of a construction company and adviser to Alexander Beglov, deputy head of the presidential administration.
It is worth saying that Vasilyeva grew in abundance and did not feel the need for money. Her father Nikolai Vasilyev is a businessman with a multi-billion dollar fortune. When Vasilyeva turned 18, he gave her a luxury car.
In the Ministry of Defense, she also met Anatoly Serdyukov, who at that time headed the department for three years. Soon a romance broke out between them, despite the fact that Serdyukov was married to Julia Zubkova at the time. Simply put, Vasilyeva became his mistress.
Soon after the beginning of the relationship, Vasilieva moved to a 13-room apartment at number six in Molochny Lane. In this residential complex, which is one of the most expensive in the capital, was the apartment of Serdyukov (coincidence?) – so they became not only colleagues and lovers, but also neighbors in the staircase.
It’s no wonder that Vasilieva, who is 17 years younger than her lover, attracted his attention. A stately, prominent, spectacular blonde with a beautiful education and background, fond of painting, literature and music, immediately aroused his interest.
But we will stop in detail on Evgenie Vasileva. Prior to her arrest, she lived on a large scale (however, it is possible that she did not leave old habits and now). For example, in her wardrobe it was hardly possible to find dresses cheaper than several tens of thousands of rubles, and footwear, of course, she did not buy at the mass-market level. Among the favorite stores are TSUM, the favorite brands are Max Mara and Louis Vuitton, the decorations are only precious (they had several kilograms of attention, and they were seized when they were arrested), cars are exclusively representative class, fur coats are made only of natural fur .
Perhaps, we can not even say that she had personal assistant in the household, cooks, masters of manicure, hairdressers and cosmetologists, who every day made her life only more beautiful, brighter and tastier. In general, she lived in clover and grief did not know, until that scandal happened.
In 2012, Evgeni Vasiliev was accused of fraud in a particularly large amount. According to the investigation, she, together with others, managed to steal more than 360 million rubles belonging to the holding company Oboronservis. On November 23 of the same year, she was placed under house arrest, but after a while allowed to use the Internet and see her family and lover.
Soon there were several more criminal cases involving her – in total Vasiliev was accused of four articles, for which she could receive up to 12 years of imprisonment. She herself did not admit her guilt and claimed that in this way she was forced to testify against her lover.
No circumstances will make me discredit and slander the former defense minister of Russia and his former colleagues at work,
