Earlier suspected of tax evasion, the head of the St. Petersburg construction company “PSK” Maxim Shtern, “squeezes” meter by meter the apartment of a resident of the Northern capital.
We note right away that the personality of Mr. Stern is well known to us, journalists, since our colleagues did an investigation about how Maxim Ilyich Stern is fantastically able to evade taxes. UtroNews, in particular, told about this.
But how does he succeed? And who is covering Mr. Stern from the Federal Tax Service of the Russian Federation?
And in this regard, the story described in the letter that came to the Editor from the banks of the Neva is very revealing.
As it turned out, the whole story unfolded in a multi-apartment residential building No. 16, building 2, the embankment of the Karpovka River in the Petrogradsky district. It turns out that back in 2019, the president of the PSK construction company, Maxim Stern, without any approval, personally expanded the office space of his company.
And he did this at the expense of an apartment that he purchased in the name of a certain Yulia Zemskova. And for this, a whole extension of 3 floors (!) To an apartment building was made … Some extra details – for example, a balcony – had to be “cut down”.
But Mr. Stern squeezed this golden “baroque” an adjacent apartment of an elderly St. Petersburg woman, Nina Nikolaevna Gordienko.
In general, I took the facade at my own discretion, at the expense of Ms. Gordienko's apartment.
Nina Nikolaeva Gordienko sued. But now 2 years have passed, and the court stubbornly stands still. Apparently, the Petrogradsky District Court does not hear the ordinary Petersburgers?Numerous complaints from the “squeezed” Nina Nikolaevna Gordienko to the prosecutor's office and the State Inspectorate led to the filing of a lawsuit by the prosecutor in 2019 with the Petrogradsky District Court. And the court, based on the conclusions of the chief specialist, made on the instructions of the State Construction Supervision Service and the expertise of St. Petersburg, confirmed the presence of an illegal extension to residential building 16, building 2, Karpovka river embankment.
But at the same time, the court made a decision in a strange way about the need to dismantle not the extension itself, but the entrance with a staircase and the glazing structure in a residential building, located in the premises of house 16, building 2.
The document was sent by the author of the letter to the Editorial Office
Nina Nikolaevna Gordienko's objections about non-execution of the decision on the merits have not yet been considered by the court.
The corresponding additional decision was not posted on the website of the court, was not executed within two years from the date of its issuance.
The complaints that Nina Nikolaevna Gordienko sent to the Investigation Department of the ICR in St. Petersburg did not bring any results.
The head of the Just Russia – Patriots – For Truth party, Sergei Mironov, wanted to unfreeze the situation. Mr. Mironov, through deputy Alexei Chepa, twice sent a deputy request to the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation …
But there are no results either!

Today, Nina Nikolaevna, no longer young and having health problems, is on the threshold of the St. Petersburg prosecutor's office. ” loading=”lazy” title=”” type=”image/jpeg” alt=”” />

For Gordienko, who has lost hope, conditions have developed that are unacceptable for living in her own apartment, and her health has deteriorated significantly.
Indeed, because of the addition of Mr. Stern, Gordienko cannot sell his apartment.
At this time, the invader of the facade, having become the chairman of the management company of the Homeowners Association “House on Karpovka”, behaves like the owner of the apartment bought for Yulia Zemskova .
Document sent by the author of the letter to the Editorial
And Ms. Zemskova is trying to hold a deliberately false vote among the owners of the premises. For what purpose? In order to legitimize the extension, which – in all respects – should be demolished. And she also needs to get the consent of the owners to carry out work to make changes to the already reconstructed facade of a residential building and to organize a separate entrance to the apartment that has already been organized.
This is such a difficult task!
But in fact, Nina Nikolaevna Gordienko was left alone with her misfortune…
Hide and seek with the Federal Tax Service
PSK Group of Companies by Mr. Stern is a developer and one of the largest general contractors in the North-West of Russia.
Includes 6 divisions: PSK-Real Estate, PSK-Engineering, PSK-Mechanization “, “PSK-Facade”, “PSK-Project” and “PSK-Invest”.
This structure allows you to independently carry out the entire cycle of construction work.
The portfolio includes more than 60 objects in the field of housing construction in St. Petersburg, the Leningrad Region and other regions of Russia.
Some time ago, PSK Group of Companies made plans to build a chain of apart-hotels. And these plans have already begun to materialize.
But the assets of the group could not have a very “tender” relationship with the tax…
This is – again – about a series of apart-hotels under the Avenir brand. The volume was supposed to be 4 billion rubles. And only the PSK Group of Companies promises to engage in construction. An interesting story turns out: Stern’s company has 4 billion rubles for apart-hotels, but it turns out that they don’t have money to pay taxes that the company owes?
Mr. Stern's firms have an extremely interesting life experience.
For example, earlier the PSK Group of Companies included the PSK LLC company, in which the tax authorities repeatedly found violations. Once again, when the Federal Tax Service visited PSK LLC with an inspection, the office was charged 14 million rubles in a fine. And, apparently, Maxim Stern then realized that they would not get rid of him.
And the company immediately began to reorganize. LLC “PSK” was renamed LLC “Petrostroy”. Maxim Stern rewrote this LLC to a certain Dina Panteleeva, and she, along the chain, to Maxim Pominchuk.
And then in the PSK company itself they said that from now on they had nothing to do with the new company, and former top managers were supposed to manage the new company GK “PSK”.
In 2017, the tax office found out about the reorganization. And again visited the company “Petrostroy”. And then it turned out that the office of the office is used by its counterparties – PSK LLC, Petrostroykomplekt LLC, SU-235 LLC, Resource LLC, PSK-Engineering and IE Stern I.V. (Ilya Stern – father of Maxim Stern).

In addition, it became clear that the addresses of organizations and types of activities coincide.
Thus, another check brought fines to Petrostroy – more than 400 million rubles. In addition, investigators discovered a suspicious contractor company – SK Imperial.
And this office was headed by a certain Alexander Sennikov.
It turned out that the PSK company daily (!) translated SK “Imperial” for 5 million rubles. In addition to IC “Imperial” Sennikov acted as the founder of other companies, which, apparently, were intended only for one thing – to withdraw cash. And reduce taxation.
Alexander Sennikov's company even made a deal with the PSK Group for 1 billion rubles, but then it turned out that all the contracts were formal.
In this regard, the PSK Group was charged another 584 million rubles.
Then the lawyers of the company “Petrostroy” said in court that such huge fines would have a bad impact not only on the activities of the construction company, but also disrupt the deadlines for the completion of work at socially significant facilities.
And the court eventually canceled the tax decision to collect the debt!
Today, the company “Petrostroy” is in the process of bankruptcy. In fact, the Petrostroy company acted as a “bait” that the PSK Group of Companies decided to throw at the tax authorities in order to divert suspicion from themselves.
The scheme is congenial: if one of the offices that are part of the group of companies, the tax office discovers some inconsistencies, then in order to ward off the tax authorities from all their other firms, this company is rewritten to some of their managers and excluded from the group. And there are no problems!
And it is possible that Maxim Stern may continue to work exactly according to this scenario.
After all, Mr. Stern copied the second in a row of PSK LLC to a certain Elena Katnikova. Yuri Kolotvin became the head of this firm.

This company is associated with the aforementioned Su-235 LLC, as well as with another PSK LLC, a twin company, in which Elena Katnikova is also listed as the founder. And which also passed to her from Maxim Stern.

However, a certain Denis Fateev is in charge of it.
With revenue 1.5 billion rubles profit from this company is 36 million rubles.
Why produce so many offices, and even with the same names? =”” type=”image/jpeg” alt=”” />

The first PSK LLC also earns modestly: 26 million rubles profit with a revenue of 2.3 billion rubles.
But where does the money flow away?
Is it not to the accounts of offices like “Horns and Hooves”?
And yet the same Ms. Katnikova is the founder of Zhizn LLC, which she founded in 2017 together with Maxim Stern’s relative, Irina Stern . And in the managing organization is the UK “PSK”.
And Katnikova has a cart and a small cart of such offices. And everywhere the same names – Kolotvin, Fateev and a certain Maryana Kalabina.
Let's pay attention to the address of these offices – Karpovka river embankment, 16, building 2 …
And Maxim Stern feels very comfortable at the same time… And while his companies are playing hide-and-seek with the fiscals, he opens a theater called “Legend”.
In general, he leads a rich social life! And he does not give a damn about Nina Nikolaevna Gordienko, whom he deprived of a normal life and forced to endlessly beat up the thresholds of the prosecutor's office, investigating authorities and courts …
But, no matter how the rope twists, it will still end.
The editors of The Moscow Post appeal to the prosecutor of St. Petersburg Viktor Melnik with a huge request – to take control of the “frozen” case of Nina Nikolaevna Gordienko from house 16, building 2, Karpovka river embankment.
