Military Review

The Moscow District Military Court upheld a mitigated sentence in respect of the ex-commander of the Ground Forces Vladimir Chirkin

50
The board of the presidium of the Moscow District Military Court today 15 June rejected the cassation representation of the prosecutor in the case of the former commander-in-chief of the Land Forces of the Russian Armed Forces, Colonel-General Vladimir Chirkin. Recall that in August of last year, the Moscow Garrison Military Court found General Chirkin guilty of receiving a bribe in the amount of 450 thousand rubles. According to the prosecution, Chirkin received this amount from his subordinate, who was eventually provided with housing.


At the same time, the court sentenced Vladimir Chirkin to 5 years of imprisonment under section “c” h. 5 Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. And to serve the term Chirkin should have been in a colony of strict regime. In addition, the court decided to recover 450 thousand rubles from Chirkin for the benefit of the state. The ex-commander in chief was deprived of the title and all awards. The defendant did not admit his guilt.

After the court session, the lawyers for the former commander-in-chief of the Land Forces of the RF Armed Forces considered the sentence to be too harsh and in addition not to have a clear evidence base.

In December 2015, the court reviewed the sentence, freeing V. Chirkin from custody and imposing a fine of 90 thousand rubles. Moreover, the case was retrained as a “fraud” (part 3 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). The appeals instance also returned to Vladimir Chirkin his title and all awards.

And already on February 19, 2016 of the year ahead of time removed his conviction from Chirkin. The legality of this decision was confirmed by a judge of the Moscow District Military Court. Reports about it Interfax.

The Moscow District Military Court upheld a mitigated sentence in respect of the ex-commander of the Ground Forces Vladimir Chirkin


Now, however, it became known that a few weeks ago, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation satisfied the cassation appeal of the Chief Military Prosecutor of the Russian Federation against the sentence of V. Chirkin. In addition, a proposal was submitted to the Presidium of the Moscow District Military Court to review the sentence, in which the deadline was replaced by a fine. The board, as already noted, the submission of the GWP rejected and left the effect of a relaxed sentence in force.

          What "Serdyukovschina" ??? So "the stars in the sky converged" that I had to prepare a response to the request of the GVP, and then to the request of the GVSU on the movement of funds and credit history of V.V. Chirkin. All copies, and then the originals of the documents, were transferred to law enforcement agencies with financial analyzes and conclusions of the operations performed. There was no "chemistry", let alone any crime in these operations. But ... Something went wrong, apparently ... Authentic answers were given to subsequent inquiries (finance is a strict and precise science, and, most importantly, easily verifiable) ... And when the verdict was announced, my colleagues and I were in shock ... Everything was turned inside out !!! Then a revision towards a lighter sentence ... Then ... In short, I think that Chirkin will be acquitted at all. Then, and completely. But that's my personal opinion.
          ZY: Chirkina V.V. I do not know, and have not seen. Who is he and what is remarkable, read today on Wikipedia. For the first time I learned about it from the request of the GWP. And then I read about it today at VO. Wrote that I know.

        I then wrote that it looks more like a setup. That's the court, I practically agree.
        Everything is done very simply - you don’t like your boss, you make an appointment with him for tomorrow, then you go to the authorities and write to him declare, they say he wants a bribe, and tomorrow, i.e. do not listen, do not track, they no longer have time for it, they give you labeled notes. Further, with an innocent look and with the words - Here’s how you agreed, you hand the brow to daddy, he opens it - the door flies out - the OBEP flies in - the profit - the people in some by eyebrows ....
        Then, of course, he might prove that he did not take and did not demand ..

          Do not tell ... Chirkin V.V. incriminated a bribe of 50 tr. for helping the lieutenant (or senior lieutenant, or the captain, or the major, or maybe the lieutenant colonel - the investigation did not establish !!!) "N" assistance in obtaining an OFFICE apartment !!!! They laughed !!! Then - everyone cried ...

      Replaced the term with a fine, but the rest, as the deprivation of rank and awards remained. In principle, for an elderly person, and even a former colonel general, this is already enough. With a period of 5 years on parole, one third of the sentence. How much did he have to sit? Only lawyers won. But the convict managed to sit, and was lowered below the baseboard. Corruption is inscribed in the control system, if you got into a flock, it’s like a wolf and howl. The system needs to be changed.

        I got interested and googled. Chirkin was tried not for a bribe, but for fraud. It is now customary for us to classify a bribe either as a fraud, or as abuse of power (for a shorter period). A wonderful "loophole" for corrupt officials. Chirkin's title and awards were returned, which means that he will receive a good military pension. But notoriety and career collapse remained. It is a pity that they defiled the honor and competence of the district military court. He knew that better.

    Yes, to hell with him with a real term (although I would like). Let the substitution with a fine - they didn’t take away the criminal record, but if they remove it, they will also receive a military pension and enjoy life. In general, 450t.r. a fine for an entire colonel general is like not going to the store a couple of times. He won’t even feel it.

      And now he’ll think together - what is the point to him, was substituted for that kind of money? And even though the distribution of apartments, we do not have the deputy commander in chief?
      Then, following the logic and the apartment at the brow, we must also take it away - after all, it was not lawfully received.

        His subordinates framed. They themselves were mutilated with these huts under the guise of Chirkin, and when they took the commander-in-chief by the ass, they framed him so that he could cover his loved ones from the criminal.

      No wonder ... Clip-s ...

      Even in Soviet times, SUCH was practiced ...
      When V.I.
      One rear officer "hanged himself" in the cell during the investigation, one division commander shot himself ...

      And Varennikov - urgently raised ...
      First he became deputy commander in chief of the Ground Forces for Higher Education Institutions, and then he held a lot of posts ...
      Without leaving Moscow, he received the title of Hero of the Soviet Union for the developed operation ...
      After his dismissal in 1994, of course, he became a deputy of the State Duma ...
      Well, here’s Medvedev’s epitaph on him when he died in 2009:
      "

      “A prominent military leader, a true patriot, a bright and extraordinary personality passed away. Valentin Ivanovich Varennikov devoted his whole life to military service. He walked along the fiery roads of the Great Patriotic War, and after the war - sparing no strength, he worked to strengthen the defenses of his homeland and was awarded the highest award - the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.

      A bold, open and decent man, for whom officer honor was above all, Valentin Ivanovich always enjoyed undeniable authority. Until the last day, he actively participated in the veteran movement, in the patriotic education of young soldiers.

      The bright memory of Valentin Ivanovich Varennikov will forever remain in the hearts of all who knew and respected him. ”

      - President of the Russian Federation D.A. Medvedev ...

      PS It's me that nothing is new in this world ...

        Don't be so hard. Varennikov still enjoys well-deserved respect in the Army. "Without leaving Moscow" - this is of course you are strong) He received the hero for the actual leadership in the development of the main operations of the 40th Army in the DRA
        First Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR. The first deputy chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the USSR remained until 1989. In connection with military conflicts and Soviet participation in them, he visited Angola, Syria, Ethiopia and Afghanistan. He was the main organizer of the work of the military units in the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident. 1984–1989 - Head of the Management Group of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR in Afghanistan.
        The hero in 1988 received a DESERVED! He got to the front in 1942. I respect him, Chirkin more than Shoigu, etc. (cardboard secret heroes with premium pestles for super secret operations) - and it is still unknown what will "emerge" after their departure. And then the team was alone with Serdyukov, but it turned out that all the altruists and patriots except Tolyan, who swam for it is not clear what, but it does not happen - everyone went to the Kuban to fish and not only). And Varennikov is a deservedly respected uncle, believe me.

      Now very strange articles. If the case is about a bribe, then Art. 290 of the UKRF is not within the competence of the appellate court, and the verdict can be reviewed by the courts of cassation. Earlier in the Russian Federation, appeals and representations were considered for decisions and sentences (in minor cases) of magistrates' courts, the rest in cassation. Expanding the competence of the appellate court (not by washing, so by skating) creates a judicial bureaucratic machine and presents the broadest opportunity to avoid punishment. The elimination of the functions of prosecutorial supervision in the Russian Federation and the introduction of courts of appeal are the most powerful support for total corruption in the state.

This practice is very close. They have the Laws written in such a way that whoever needs to be imprisoned and who needs it is fined. This we observe with scumbag major. In general, capitalism, a long coin rules.

    You don't understand the background. Run into a respected person in the system, in a major position. We need a command "Fas!", From above. This rule is. We live in such a country. And the smaller fraudsters were not touched for opportunistic and political reasons. Whatever it was, Serdyukov, a scoundrel, but it was he who did away with the Arbat parquet district, as a competing organization. An organization held together by family and monetary ties. In the 90s, for one real staff worker, there were four thieves parasites. So, it is possible that we are inspecting the last batch of a large (quiet) purge.

    Does one of the servants really believe that the GK SV fell to some major and, strictly observing the conspiracy, gave the apartment to him for a bribe? Firstly, it can be assumed that there were several majors in NE who could directly communicate with the Civil Code, which is doubtful. Secondly, people of this rank have thousands of relatively honest ways to withdraw budget money without resorting to the services of majors. It's just that he is not Vasiliev. I needed a sacred sacrifice, and we stopped at it. At the same time, they reported on the achievements in the fight against corruption. In general, it’s a pity the man, okay, it would be about billions, but 450 thousand is a laugh.

    I am bored with your comments. All the great experts: the judge, the prosecutor and the jury in one person - figured everything out, made conclusions and burn with righteous anger. Did you hold a candle, were you present when giving a "bribe"? It's like in a joke: "spoons were found, but the residue remained" In our time, it is much easier to substitute and slander a decent person than to call a scoundrel to account. Should you give examples? I have met few officers more decent than General Chirkin and I am sure that he did not put a stranger's penny in his pocket. I think everyone who served with him will agree with me. And some "commentators" would gladly cut their tongues so as not to flog nonsense , without any reason. And now minus, sofa generals. I didn't give a damn about your minuses.

      Emotions are not facts. For nothing, even the heads of district administrations are not prosecuted. It happens that daddies with incriminating evidence lie for years and wait in the wings in safes. And I saw these safes. I haven’t come across Chirkin, but I know from the inside how the judicial and investigative system works. Something cannot arise from nothing. If the general did not suit the authorities, they would simply be sent to retire. And if they were caught taking a bribe, they could have let everything go on the brakes and retire. They could and did not. That's the question. As for crystal honesty. I do not believe. Wrong times, wrong system. Around the wolves are shameful and right there the angel flies. I knew excellent, cultured commanders and chiefs. Respected subordinates, but not forgetting themselves. Everyone has a family, children, grandchildren. So, while the court verdict has not been canceled, the general has not been acquitted. And arguments from the category of "the most honest person", the court does not accept for consideration.

        Regarding the military investigative and prosecutorial system, I can say that the higher the rank of the accused, the more buns they will receive if a person is imprisoned, and if they already took up the person, they will bring this matter to an end. According to statistics, military courts convict in 99 percent of cases, in contrast to civilians. In this case, the command "Fas" from above to "land" on him and on other generals was anyway.

            The reason is that this major was thrown at grandmother by Chirkin’s subordinates under cover of his name; he declared them and took them. In order not to go to jail, they made a deal with the investigation and set up the general. Well, then the wheel of justice spun ... Notice, I didn’t condemn those who directly took money from this unfortunate major who was left without an apartment. It was as if they didn’t exist. By the way, I know one of these nits that created him. In my unit, I served as a personnel officer ...

At one time, they were banned from the "officers" for an unflattering review of him, there were doubts, but the obvious "proof" turned out to be a setup. For rascals. To achieve the goal, all means are good. Let's hope that the honest NAME OF THE OFFICER will be restored to the general !!!

    I know Vladimir Valentinovich since the time of the deputy division director of 19 motorway division. He did not take this money !!! He’s not such a person in life! One of the few who did not hesitate to tell the truth at a fraction. Therefore, a major was found .... who just came to the Commander-in-chief ... and brought what they gave to bring .... and classified the major .... well, and the system completed the order. But everything will be fine! And they will remove all charges from the commander. Here are just updating the army went without him, and someone achieved his result.
