Strasbourg suffering: a chauffeur, a bicycle and a hundred thousand euros

124

Moscow has long become a cycling city, no worse than any Amsterdam. The season does not stop even in the very cold - two-wheeled couriers scurry back and forth, in spite of ice or snow drifts. And to steal bicycles from us is not comme il faut, and even more so to exhibit them at Avito.


It is quite another matter in the enlightened "Europe". There, half of the population ride stolen bikes. History, which happened in Strasbourg (almost the capital of the EU), where several European Union structures are located at once, starting with the common Parliament, is a clear example of this.

The guy is not a miss


Recently, the Russian Foreign Ministry got into an extremely hard-hitting story because of one of its thieving employees. It was in Strasbourg - a clean, well-groomed and glamorous corner of France. The general Russian consulate lives there. And in it, as in any large institution, there was its own chauffeur. Now, however, he is no longer there.

And this chauffeur turned out to be a good guy. People say about such people: "I cut my soles on the go." In addition to the main job, on which he clearly did not overwork, he also had a piquant hobby - a modest steering worker stole and sold stolen bicycles. The case was presented on a grand scale. Stolen bicycles were scattered across Strasbourg and its environs in batches.

But, as the Spaniards say, "and there is a hole in the old woman." On one not the sunniest day of his life, the chauffeur "sipped" a bicycle clearly from the wrong pack - he whistled at the employee of the local mayor's office.

It is in Russia that the words "employee of the mayor's office" and "bicycle" lie in different universes. In Strasbourg, things are a little different. The mayor's office employees also ride bicycles there. Wild Europeans, what to take from them.


The French official clearly did not like this trick. He was not too lazy to roll a statement to the police. But law enforcement officers seem to be the same all over the world. The Strasbourg cops, as expected, refused to accept the application - "we have nothing to spoil the statistics." The stubborn official began to look for a two-wheeled friend himself.

And I did find it. In local advertisements for sale. I made an appointment. And I bought my two-wheeled back. Well, and handed over the seller where necessary - here the police could not refuse. As the French proverb says, "if the Almighty throws you a plum, open your mouth!"

And they tied the thief at the crime scene. The piquancy of the situation increased significantly when it turned out that the chauffeur of the Russian embassy was selling the bike. Right at the consular gate.

And after looking at the rest of the announcements of a Russian citizen on their Avito, the policemen experienced an unusually stormy stream of complex emotions: it turns out that the clever driver has already sold several hundred bikes, raising at least a hundred thousand euros for them.

Compared to the "more than modest" driver's salary of two and a half to three thousand euros a month, the amount seems impressive. Quite a pull for a one-room apartment in the near Moscow region.

Do not wash, so ride


The Russian Foreign Ministry has not received such blows to its reputation for a long time. It seems that a trifle is not great, but still. The Internet literally exploded with poisonous trolling. Many bloggers nearly drowned in their own bile.

"If an ordinary chauffeur sells stolen bicycles, then what is the consul busy with ?!"

- this, perhaps, was the most innocent question that was found on the vastness of the world wide web.

And suddenly. Suddenly. On the channel "Russia 24" they are beginning to ... otmazyvayut the driver. Well, right in the forehead. Somehow they very strongly doubted the guilt of their fellow countryman. Moreover, they also pulled up some very strange experts under this case.

A certain director of the Institute for Strategic Studies bore bluntly:

"Maybe he is. Or maybe not him. And you prove it! And even if he ... Did he squeeze the rest of the big ones too? But prove it! "

This is a normal defense strategy.

Then, on the screen, some lawyer sarcastically asked:

“And where, by the way, did the deal go? If on the territory of the Russian embassy, ​​then why did you get to the bottom of the kid ?! Oh, the French? This is our territory, our cow, and we will milk it! "

And so they are procrastinating this story to this day. Otmazyvayut driver and elegantly lower the city hall below the plinth of Strasbourg. With a smile. With a subtle hint: if you would drive like all normal people in cars, everything would be okay. And so they provoked our innocent man.

After the presenter, in a tragic voice, said that the cunning driver had already been fired and left for his homeland "due to illness." Moreover, it was said with such a face and such intonations that even the French understood: “You will get a hole from a donut, not Sharapov! He may be a son of a bitch, but this is our son of a bitch. "

For sweet


There are several famous sayings: "History teaches that no one teaches anything." "They have not forgotten anything and have not learned anything." "History, of course, teaches nothing, but it cruelly avenges its ignorance."

And therefore - a couple of innocent questions from the Russian Foreign Ministry. Our "sons of bitches", of course, must be saved. This is an axiom. But where do they come from in the Foreign Ministry with such enviable constancy? The Argentine story with coke did not have time to die down - the "Strasbourg bicycles" burst out.


There are many drivers in Russia. For a Strasbourg salary of two or three thousand euros, a line of people wishing to turn the steering wheel "over the hill" even as far as France will line up. Why is it necessary to choose some inadequate from all this chauffeur's ocean?

This despite the fact that all "European" candidates in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are considered under a magnifying glass, including the local special officers of the first department? Maybe, as Zhvanetsky said, to correct something at the conservatory?

And the second thing. Why was this more than controversial line of defense chosen on Russian TV - they say, the fools themselves are right for you? It would not be easier to admit: yes, we made a mistake, we will fix it, we apologize. The one who does not work at all is not mistaken. These things, by the way, are taught at MGIMO in the first year.

And blaming everything on the victim is almost always a loss. This is not even a violation of the basic laws of diplomacy. This, according to Talleyrand, is worse than a crime. This is mistake. And if our Foreign Ministry does not urgently draw some conclusions, then such diplomatic scandals will be repeated, alas, with depressing constancy.

      Not at all.
      The Russian Consulate General in Strasbourg confirmed that on February 14, his employee was detained "at the time of the sale of an electric bike to a private person." The diplomatic mission noted that he left France on February 18 due to deteriorating health


      It just looks like that, but not an April Fool's joke in any way.

                        Tomorrow they will pass, for example, a law that makes it a criminal offense to condemn homosexuals on the Internet. An employee of the diplomatic mission from Russia, who condemned such sexual perversions on social networks, will be detained in Europe for violating their "law" and tried there. Do you like this alignment? Or do you think that it is impossible for them to adopt such laws? The Poles have already "forbidden" to remember their deeds during the Second World War. Let now only those diplomatic workers go to Poland who firmly believe in the integrity and righteousness of the Poles who worked as wardens in concentration camps, right?
                        Our citizens should be judged only by us and only by our laws. Moreover, if these citizens represent the interests of our state abroad.
                        After all, the court is one of the branches of government. And it is impossible to give power over your citizens into the hands of foreign states. Under no circumstances.

                        If these citizens represent the interests of our state abroad, then definitely yes, but in this case, expulsion to their homeland, there is diplomatic immunity. And so, it is forbidden if by law to scold homosexuals at them, then either not to go to them, or not to scold. No one in their right mind would ever think of drinking contraband vodka in the park on a bench with a caramel in Iran.))))) What will Iran do with such a character? He will definitely put him in jail, because they have this crime, will he betray him? Maybe yes, maybe not, but if it does, then only after landing according to Iranian law, Iran is in its right. We have the same as a Jewess tried and imprisoned for drugs, Putin then Netanyahu, it seems, passed it on. But she was tried in the Russian Federation, t. To. the crime was in the Russian Federation.

                        In July 2010, the consul of Zimbabwe, Brighton Mugurisanwa in Tehran, ran into cloning girls. The Zimbabwean invited two women to his place, and they poured a dangerous drug into his alcohol and robbed him. Mr. Mugurisanwa was forced to leave the country where such behavior is punishable by law.


                        But he was from Zimbabwe itself! And ours - let them lynch right on the spot - he's just Russian.

                        And the embassy staff?

                        Diplomatic immunity (from Latin immunitas "independence; non-commitment") is the removal of its beneficiary (carrier) from the jurisdiction of the host state. First of all, the bearers of such immunity are the head of the diplomatic mission and other diplomatic staff. However there are cases when such immunity is enjoyed by persons who are not part of the diplomatic staff of embassies.

                        (Wikipedia)

                        Arresting, with or without reason, the junior staff of the embassies, one can easily paralyze their work and make the presence of "senior staff" in the country meaningless.

      He stole on the territory of France, to the French and sold these bikes and did not have a diplomatic passport, therefore, according to the law, he should be tried by the French. And it's not clear why we should save this thief? He stole - let him answer, he also damaged the image of Russia. After all, Europeans judge us - Russians by such people. Or is it the son of a high-ranking nobleman, then the fuss over his excuse is understandable. But in general, this is wildness: he traded in bikes from the territory of our consulate, and he had been doing this for over a year. He stole about 300 bikes in a year, this is one bike a day. Didn't the consul himself and the consular staff see heaps of bikes on their territory? The consul must be driven home from work.

      A country starts a criminal case if a crime is committed in the territory of that country. This is an elementary truth and a link is not needed here.
      Further, this chauffeur did not have a diplomatic passport, so France has every right to judge him in her own country.

    And here it is not the Foreign Ministry that should be stigmatized, but the system that generates such things and those who built it.

    Such an extrapolation is the lot of the completely deprived of the brain. You shouldn't do this, even if you want to.

    This is not an "extrapolation" of any kind, it is a system of negative selection that works this way. This is all the same corruption, nepotism and employment based on family ties.

        There is not one, but 400 kg of drugs found in our embassy in Argentina, which were sent by dip-mail to Russia? And with the greats: it's not one great, but 300 stolen bikes a year. It turns out that this chauffeur went to steal every day, like to work. And a consular officer helped him to sell him (and directly from the territory of the consulate), the police detained two, one showing a diploma and he was released.

        Maybe there were thieves in the Union, but the USSR was not a state built by thieves and to serve the interests of thieves, or do you think all these privatizers from the 90s are not thieves? There was never such a shame with the theft of bicycles in the USSR, imagine Molotov stealing gum in a British supermarket.

          I can quite imagine, for example, the head of one of the republics of the USSR, his minister and officials (including from the Ministry of Internal Affairs!) Involved in the notorious "cotton business". And if you believe the verdicts of the times of the same Stalin, then who among us did not turn out to be only an "English spy" - right down to the officials of the federal level. Isn't that a shame? Spies have been sitting on the highest levels of power in the country for many years! Don't spies in power discredit it? But the Foreign Ministry driver who stole the bike is, of course, a sentence ...

              Crime has always been true, but the fact that Russia is 136th in terms of the growth of corruption speaks volumes. The situation is worse than us only in 44 countries, and 135 countries of the world are more successful than us in fighting corruption. So we are at the end (at the bottom) and this example with greats only pushes us even lower.

          In 2004, Britain published a list of crimes committed in the country by persons protected by diplomatic immunity. From 1999 to 2004, embassy officials committed 122 crimes in the United Kingdom. <...> Diplomats from developed countries were also included in the list. Employees of the French and German embassies fought, and the Germans, in addition, facilitated illegal immigration to the British Isles by selling fake documents.

          In the days of Abraham Lincoln, an American attended an appointment with the then Secretary of State William Seward and asked why a certain ambassador, famous for his immoral behavior, was still in office, continuing to dishonor his country abroad. Seward replied with a sigh: "Sir, some people are sent abroad because they are needed abroad, and some are sent because they are not needed at home."

      And you have not forgotten, for an hour, one "English spy" who, under the USSR, managed to become the general secretary in order to destroy our country in pieces? And the heads of the republics of the Union did not particularly oppose that (to put it mildly). However, like a significant part of the other Soviet nomenclature. Are you not impressed by the number of "British spies" in power? Or did they not come to power under the Union? Was this all patriotic enough, in your opinion?

And so yes, for life and confiscation, and from relatives, if the origin of the assets is not proven. But look, we have those who have carried out and are using the results of the thieves' privatization today in power. Take recent examples of the Kalashnikov or Massandra concern, for example, what should you call it? For me, this is such a state system built on theft, bribery, nepotism and family ties. From what they left in 1917, they returned to that today, everything is like in the Republic of Ingushetia in those years, theft, nepotism and bribery.

In broad daylight, they stupidly broke the glass of a wheelbarrow parked by the cafe, and carried out the equipment, which weighs several tens of kilograms.

    From my personal memories of this wonderful city - when you see a man on one of the tourist streets, right from the steps of a building, sniffing some white powder. And also - in broad daylight.

    So, apparently, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not dare to send normal drivers to such a nativity scene))))

            It's not about that. Are you talking about this character disgracing the country, or don't you think so? "Large and serious atrocities are often called brilliant and, as such, are recorded on the tablets of History. Small and comic atrocities are called shameful, and not only they do not mislead History, but they do not receive praise from contemporaries either." Saltykov-Shchedrin. Reread The Bear in the Voivodeship. There about such "acts".

            And if I go to France and start stealing bikes there, will the Foreign Ministry also save me and excuse me?
            And one more thing: the European press publishes this story, as well as other shameful stories for us, very willingly, and I will ask you - what is the opinion of Europeans after reading it? What do they think of us? And do their diplomats in Russia also behave like that?

      One journalist friend told how a couple of years ago their film crew in Paris, right in the center of the city, had their equipment stolen from a car when they stopped for a bite to eat. In broad daylight, they stupidly broke the glass of a wheelbarrow parked by the cafe, and carried out the equipment, which weighs several tens of kilograms.

    But where do they come from in the Foreign Ministry with such enviable constancy? The Argentine story with coke did not have time to die down - the "Strasbourg bicycles" burst out.

    The cocaine story was investigated from 2016 to early 2018, and the case was led by Russian and Argentinean specials. organs. The case is unpleasant, but no one began to hide it.
    The case with bicycles is modern, as I understand it, i.e. three years have passed. On - did not have time to die down, as it does not pull. I remember there were cases when diplomats shot down to death while drunk, everything happens. We need to give a legal assessment to this and that's it.
    In the second case, the driver is an employee, never a diplomat. Pierced, yes. But they did not hide it either. Some dip. representative offices, a person is cut into pieces and taken out in a suitcase. And let the local police deal with this swindler, but after the release he can get citizenship. Another would be to know the surname of this warrior and where he is from at all, maybe there is a surprise.

    tragedies have happened. The pilots were killed when the catapult was not triggered, the choir was killed. Alexandrova and Dr. Liza, Russian pilot killed in Syria. But how many and how many joyful
    There were comments under reports about these tragedies in Russia, for example, in Lithuanian news portals! Thousands of under each article about this, for example, in delfi.lt! Already squealing and accordions tore with joy from the local commentators. And how did the Russian ambassador to Lithuania react to this? To him that no one in the embassy translates from Lithuanian into Russian, how terribly they shit on Russia, how happy the death of Russians is and violates all possible criteria of freedom of speech and skips such comments and does not delete them. No one has heard the official protest of the Russian Foreign Ministry on how the authorities of such states allow the tragedy in Russia on their news portals to turn it into a holiday for the local enemies and haters of Russia. And the embassy and the Foreign Ministry are silent. And there are very big doubts that the Foreign Ministry appoints diplomats worthy and loyal to Russia to the embassies abroad. So, unfortunately, there are many weak links in the chain of the Russian Foreign Ministry's mechanism ...

    The news is old, our driver, a businessman, a petty thief, returned home. Shame? - Shame! But even the Mexicans do THIS: Mexican press attaché Rafael Quintero Curiel in the White House stole several BlackBerry smartphones. Caught, returned. So, someone else's example is contagious - little things. Whether the case is 400 kg of heroin, stored up by our employee of the technical staff of the embassy in Argentina. For some reason, Patrushev himself immediately rushed there, probably to direct the actions of the Argentine police. What the scale! What a volume! These are not phones and are great to steal!

    The harmonious system of the domestic depot, in which relatives of Politburo members were attached, as well as numerous supervisors from various non-public ministries and departments with the obligatory approval of candidates for foreign business trips, not only in the first department, but also at the level of the head of the second head of the KGB, began to break down amusingly. Either the supply manager drives Russia coke aboard the government squadron, the consular driver steals their personal bicycles from decent citizens and citizens of the fifth republic, or something else that the inhabitants of Russia will never know about, because "the incidents are classified," damn it. that in general and at the level of foreign policy of a state that is trying to take on the burden of responsibility for the fate of the world, or, in a broad sense, of our Galaxy and the Universe. But the "warriors of the world" have degenerated, and the departmental university, which was specially established for this in 1944 and in which at one time they recruited war veterans, order-bearers, and not Brezhnev Andryusch, has long been preparing effective managers with diplomas of lawyers and economists who smartly fill vacancies of top management in state-owned companies and bureaucratic sinecures in state institutions. The pets of this Moscow major wasp nest can no longer be lured into the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for ordinary positions, the ambitions are so great that it is necessary to vacate the positions of directors / deputy directors in country and thematic departments in order to employ the happy owners of MGIMO diplomas. Naturally, the lower level of vacancies in foreign missions (assistants, 3 secretaries, attachés) is filled by successful graduates of regional pedagogical universities / universities, which are completely unsuitable for the diplomatic and consular service, I will keep silent about a number of other specific tasks of the state, for which the status and staffing of foreign missions are used and these "cadres", made up of kinship and other ties, have a very distant, if any, notion of the foreign policy of the Russian state, since they are hired by the Foreign Ministry and sent on long business trips to foreign missions for somewhat different tasks. Whoever and whoever is the caretaker of the diplomatic mission in Buenos Aires or the driver of the consulate in Strasbourg, these are by no means random people, and we will eat this shit for a long time after them, especially if the guys just took part in the actions of the special services of our bosom partners, "good relations" with which the Russian Federation values ​​for some reason much more than the strategic interests and plans of its own economic, social and defense development. It turns out badly when history not only teaches nothing, but also does not give a reason to think about the facts. If I figure out Minister Lavrov in the comments, I will.

      There was, I remember a story with insurance in the States
      The US Federal Attorney's Office has filed health insurance fraud charges against a group of Russian diplomats. This was announced on Thursday, December 5, according to CNN. Among the defendants in the case are 49 people, including former and current employees of the diplomatic service, as well as their spouses. According to the investigation, they provided fictitious information to the Medicaid program, which is used by the poor in the United States.
      The office of the federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York found that former and current employees of the permanent mission of Russia to the UN, as well as the consulate general and trade mission of the Russian Federation in New York, participated in a criminal scheme for nine years. The defendants in the case were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud in the field of health insurance and embezzlement of budget funds.

    ... And they tied the thief at the crime scene. The piquancy of the situation increased significantly when it turned out that the chauffeur of the Russian embassy was selling the bike. Right at the consular gate.

    And after looking at the rest of the announcements of a Russian citizen on their Avito, the policemen experienced an unusually stormy stream of complex emotions: it turns out that the clever driver has already sold several hundred bikes, raising at least a hundred thousand euros for them. .... the presenter in a tragic voice said that the cunning driver had already been fired and left for his homeland "due to illness"
    That is, the cops tied up the "thief of 100 thousand euros" and then released? Did the driver have a diplomatic passport or did they pay a deposit for it? Something the author does not say or somewhere "cunning"

      He was initially detained for stealing one bicycle, that there were still advertisements for the sale, it turned out after a month during the investigation. For one bike, of course, no one immediately threw him into prison, and when the scale was found out and a warrant was issued, it surfaced that he got sick and went home
      In Strasbourg, police have issued an arrest warrant for the driver of a Russian diplomat on suspicion of selling stolen bicycles, French media reported on Tuesday, March 23. The driver, a man about 40 years old, with Russian citizenship, without diplomatic immunity, was interrogated on February 14, but was released for the duration of the preliminary investigation, after which he left for Russia.

    what It should not be concluded from this article that all Russians a priori have a penchant for crime.
    The main motives (intent, for what purpose the crime was committed), first of all - self-interest, personal enrichment, which is the subject of research in criminal psychology.
    In this case, if there is evidence, it should be admitted that a judicial investigation has confirmed the fact of theft of property by the driver of the diplomatic mission of the Russian Federation. Be guided by Art. 12 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

    Crimes are committed both by citizens of other states and by employees of diplomatic missions, regardless of countries.
    Such a human nature. I am sure that even if you carry out a professional selection, recruiting the best, responsible and executive, without "cronyism" and "nepotism", anyway someone will commit a crime. A crime committed by an intelligent person is the most dangerous act for society ...

    Earlier, Britain announced a list of crimes committed in the country by persons protected by diplomatic immunity. From 1999 to 2004, embassy officials committed 122 crimes. There was a murder committed by a Colombian citizen, a robbery committed by an Angolan, the rape of a child committed by a Moroccan, etc. The employees of the French and German embassies started fights, and the Germans, in addition, facilitated illegal immigration to the British Isles by selling false documents.
    Drunk driving and traffic violations are common offenses for diplomats. In 1997, the deputy Georgian ambassador to the United States, Georgy Makharadze, knocked down five passers-by while drunk, and one person died. In 1998, the US Consul General in Vladivostok, Douglas Kent, caused an accident, as a result of which the guy was left disabled. In 2001, Russian diplomat Andrei Knyazev shot down two passers-by in Ottawa, one was killed. In 2009, a drunken Romanian diplomat, Silviu Ionescu, shot down three men in Singapore and tried to escape.
    In 2008, Mexican press attaché Rafael Quintero Curiel stole a BlackBerry phone at a press conference in New Orleans. In November 2010, in Hong Kong, French diplomat Marc Fonbostier stole two bottles of expensive wine from a closed club.

    I believe that diplomatic immunity should be granted only to the ambassador (consul).

    The chauffeur, of course, is still a fruit. However, he is the bearer of information about the movements of the consular staff, possibly about meetings - and therefore to give him over to the police of another, not friendly country - this must be quite a bit. We did everything right. Secondly, verification and your own investigation must be carried out - a setup is not excluded, including a "page on the Internet." Confuse "hundreds of bicycles" - what a period of activity should be! Not eating, not sleeping, not working - just stealing, and not even in the "Stakhanovian" way, but at the limit of physical exhaustion. A strange story. In any case, it is unlikely that this chauffeur personally stole "hundreds of bicycles" (if at all he was involved, and not framed). Most likely, he bargained bought on the cheap, - he found a "vein" and "acquaintances", and a pleasant gesheft stifled the desire to ask questions. Or, again, the 2nd option: setup. In any case, you need to figure it out. It is impossible to hand over.

    And yes, by the way, "TASS is authorized to declare" was filmed not from scratch. There, the hero of Kuravlev was also a "convicted criminal", exposed by American agents to their own people in the police, with charges of working for American intelligence! The difference is that the country was neutral friendly. And here, Europe, Strasbourg, is a nest of Russophobia. So it may not be as simple as a "rotten frame".
