Editorial sources in the FSB reported that a criminal community has been operating under the noses of law enforcement officers in the Sverdlovsk region for more than 5 years. The criminal group includes current and former security officials.


Profitable scheme

The criminal scheme is carried out as follows, businessmen apply to companies controlled by the organized criminal group Yu-Oil, Metallurg-Ural, for cooperation in the field of trade in petroleum products, from that moment on, members of the criminal group, registered in the company for various positions, artificially create the appearance of the company's reliability , conduct negotiations, conclude contracts, carry out current operational activities clearly according to the regulations, etc. Having completed several successful transactions, having completed all financial calculations on time, businessmen are offered to participate in a larger project. Unsuspecting merchants, as a rule, agree to favorable terms, transfer large sums of money, or transfer property to members of the organized crime group.

Having seized the property of a businessman, members of the organized criminal group artificially give the kid the appearance of civil law relations and even offer the victim to file a complaint with law enforcement agencies, for the purity of the experiment. At present, a number of companies have already been identified that have suffered from the activities of a criminal group, the main episode on which the security forces are now actively working is a crime committed against a major player in the oil refining market, Integrated Support for the Regions LLC (TIN 7729694984). Also in the field of view of the security forces were transactions conducted by organized crime groups with the companies LLC Nafta Group, Yamalneftegazstroy, ANP-Group, Uraltranstroy.

According to our sources, this business scheme was invented and implemented by the former senior investigator for especially important cases of the Sverdlovsk Regional Prosecutor's Office, Boris Borisovich Malafeev. Having a wide circle of acquaintances in the law enforcement block of the Sverdlovsk region, Malafeev was able to put together a criminal group in which responsibilities are clearly divided. Malafeev carries out the general management of the organized crime group, as well as control over the activities of firms, selects nominals for the role of their leaders, withdraws stolen funds from accounts, cashes and distributes criminal income among members of the organized crime group, interacts with law enforcement officers, transferring a share from the stolen. An active member of the group is a friend of Malafeev, Popov Sergey Nikolaevich. Currently, he is registered as the director of one of Malafeev's companies.

Enforcer with a past

Борис Малафеев

Malafeev became known to the general public in 2015 as an auto hack from Yekaterinburg, dismissed from the prosecutor's office on negative grounds, and subsequently convicted of causing minor bodily harm (part 2 of article 115 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) to 8 months of corrective labor. Then a pregnant woman became a victim of an unbalanced security official. Malofeev also became famous for kidnapping his girlfriend and forcibly holding her with handcuffs to the battery. The suffering of the girl lasted until the arrival of the FSB officers. Malafeev was saved from punishment for kidnapping by his mother Tamara Malafeeva, now a former high-ranking employee of the Sverdlovsk regional prosecutor's office.

According to our sources, Tamara Malafeeva herself may be involved in the criminal business scheme. Having strong connections in the prosecutor's office of the Sverdlovsk region, she organized mutually beneficial cooperation between the prosecutor's office and Malafeev's firms. None of the checks against Malafeev's firms ended with the initiation of a criminal case. Prosecutors do not seem to see the statements of the victims and turn a blind eye to the rejected materials. Malafeev himself in his circle of friends likes to brag about the patronage of high-ranking employees of the Prosecutor General's Office, as well as the prosecutor's office of the Sverdlovsk region, which made it possible to establish werewolves in uniform. According to preliminary estimates, Boris Malafeev's group stole about half a billion rubles from businessmen. Having received information that the FSB was interested in the activities of Malafeev’s firms, the latter, in order to avoid arrest, is actively trying to rewrite assets.
