Source: continues to analyze the archive of the Spanish special services, which carefully recorded the negotiations and actions of dubious Russians who have chosen the resorts of the Kingdom. They were primarily interested in the “godfather” of St. Petersburg Gennady Petrov and his entourage. And it included many interesting people, for example, State Duma deputy Vladislav Reznik and ex-defense minister Anatoly Serdyukov. Also included in this environment was the then head of the MIA General Administration for the Central Federal District Nikolai Aulov. The report of the preliminary investigation of the Spanish court in the case of the Russian mafia, which was published by the telegram channel "Infobomb", contains a detailed dossier on Nikolai Aulov.

“Nikolay Nikolaevich Aulov, b. ... .. In 1988 he graduated from the Police Academy of the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs. He served in the 6th Department of the Main Directorate of Internal Affairs of Leningrad (fight against organized crime). He is considered one of the founders of the now disbanded Regional Directorate for Combating Organized Crime of St. Petersburg (RUBOP). In November 1998, he was appointed Deputy Head of the Northern and North-Western Regional Directorates for Combating Organized Crime. On May 26, 1999, an attempt was made on the Aulovs' spouses, both were injured as a result of sniper shots. In December 2004, he was appointed head of the anti-terrorist center "T" of the Department for Combating Organized Crime and Terrorism of the Russian Interior Ministry. On November 7, 2006, by presidential decree, he was appointed head of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Central Federal District. This appointment served as his promotion to the rank of Major General. On June 16, 2008, by decree of the President of the Russian Federation, he was appointed Deputy Director of the Federal Service of the Russian Federation for Drug Control and Head of the Operational-Investigative Department (Department 2).

Maintains a very close relationship with Mr. Gennadios Petrov and his son, Anton Petrov. According to wiretapping, where Mr. Gennadios Petrov was the object of observation, Mr. Aulov communicated with him 78 times on the phone, of which 74 times it was Aulov who initiated the call. On the other hand, approximately during 172 telephone conversations (2% of the total number of calls),

Mr. Petrov and his interlocutors talked about Aulov in one context or another. In the testimony given by Mr Gennadios Petrov and Mr Leonid Khristoforov after their arrest, the former recognized Mr Aulov as his great friend, while Mr Khristoforov testified that he did not know Mr Aulov ... In reality, a number of wiretapped telephone conversations prove the opposite, during one such conversation Khristoforov reminds Mr. Petrov to call the General about his promotion. There are telephone conversations between Messrs. Petrov and Glushchenko (a member of the Tambovskaya organized criminal group, an opponent of Kumarin), where Glushchenko announces his intention to come to Moscow to meet with Petrov's friends and agree on testifying against Kumarin, in addition, he plans to meet with Mr. Mr. Nikolay Nikolaevich Aulov to talk to him about one influential person who is able to perform this action. A month and a half later, Kumarin was arrested. There are records of telephone conversations between the accused (mainly, we are talking about Gennadios Petrov), from which it follows that Mr. Nikolai Nikolaevich Aulov is, to put it mildly, a person very close to the Tambov organized criminal group. It is understood that this organized criminal group after the detention of Mr. Vladimir Kumarin (his current surname is Barsukov) on the territory of the Russian Federation in August 2007 came under the control of Mr. Petrov (and other leaders). According to the Spanish Civil Guard Guardia Civil, Mr. Nikolai Nikolaevich Aulov is one of the most important people for Petrov in his homeland. This allows us to conclude that the Petrov group is clearly integrated into the police institutions of Russia. During telephone conversations, these two people try to be careful: they adhere to a certain manner of speech, do not say phrases, avoid going into details that could negatively affect them or bind them with any obligations. They believe that this communication medium is not a reliable communication medium. Mr. Aulov received money from Petrov and his inner circle. Messrs. Petrov and Aulov provide each other with mutual services in order to obtain both personal and business benefits. It makes sense to note the actions of Aulov's people, carried out at the request of Petrov, namely: the arrest of several police officers due to the fact that they acted against the interests of one person from Petrov's entourage. Thanks to his connections with the political circles of his country, Petrov provides assistance to the General so that the latter could occupy certain positions.

Mr. Nikolay Aulov uses the power given to him and has people loyal to him, whom he uses as a tool of intimidation or threats against a number of persons who intend to interfere with Petrov, informing Petrov and his son about it. Anton Petrov. Mr. Aulov has repeatedly issued orders to a certain person with a request to remove from the information database the charges against a certain person. Mr. Nikolay Aulov often gives Mr. Petrov confidential information about the conduct of investigative processes, about the detention of Mr. Vladimir Kumarin, as well as information that directly affects Mr. Petrov, for example, information that Kumarin testifies against those who worked for him, and against Petrov himself. Mr. Nikolay Aulov, using his connections and friendly relations in the state and regional administrations, provides support and facilitates the issuance of licenses or other types of concessions or permits in the personal and business interests of Petrov and his entourage. In one of the conversations, Aulov informs Petrov that he will be able to positively resolve the issue that he is now dealing with, despite the absence of such precedents, and also tells him that he will keep the whole process under control in order to get a positive resolution. From the conversations we listened to, the following references to Mr. Aulov can be distinguished: 07/02/2007 at 10:54:46: Mikhail Glushchenko calls Petrov and informs him of his intention to come to Moscow to meet with Petrov's friends and talk about Manko (I mean Vladimir KUMARIN; Mikhail invites him to meet with Nikolai Nikolaevich Aulov to talk about an influential person and because only he, Aulov himself, could do it. Mikhail adds that if he comes to Moscow and puts pressure people could testify against Kumarin. Petrov replies that he will call Aulov and offer him what Mikhail is ready to do, and if Aulov expresses his consent, then he ("Gushchenko") can get together for a trip to Moscow. and subsequent ones were committed before Vladimir Kumarin (Barsukov) was detained by the Russian authorities in August 2007. 1607/2007 at 20:08:58 Anton Petrov calls his father to clarify the place and time of the appointment. you sit next to Nikolai Aulov, hands him the phone so that he can talk to Anton and explain to him where the meeting will take place. The meeting will take place on Tverskaya, in the Gorki restaurant, at 20.00. Aulov asks Anton if he needs to give an order to Alexander Petrovich so that he, together with his people, monitor the situation in the district, and Anton replies that this is not necessary, that this is a safe place. On 5.08 / 2007 at 17:06:43, Nikolai Nikolaevich called Petrov: Nikolai is the person who solved the problems of a certain Mikhail (a person associated with Petrov, who had problems with one company associated with Petrov) and, thanks to his intervention, were detained several people related to the state security bodies: the detainees had an intention to arrest Mikhail and confiscate his property: here it should be noted that the company where Mikhail works was registered with the Russian police department of OMON on 03.08 / 2007; a former employee of this company, chief engineer Krause, was arrested due to the facts of fraud during his work in previous companies. Petrov was informed of the alleged risk through his contacts in Russia and through his son Anton, who told his father that Krause had already testified against the company (on the fact of money laundering, etc.). Anton informs him that Krause was involved in one case concerning the company and that he may have information that could harm them: Petrov does not show concern and explains to his son that money is everything, and that if Krause lets him go, it could turn back big problems; later, in a conversation on the same topic, Mikhail Mironov informs Petrov that they have been disclosed and that the State Tax Service will conduct an audit of the company, and that they prepare for this. On 6/08/2007 at 15:39:30 Petrov talks to Mikhail and tells him that he should not pay Nikolai, as he will receive money from another source. 1008/2007 at 17:09:12 Anton calls Petrov and says that he will meet with the assistant of the "Professor" to talk about Nikolayevich (most likely, we are talking about their protege for the post of Deputy or Minister of Finance).
