Gufman Gennady Leonidovich
Gufman is a man who brazenly impoverishes the Dnieper. He runs from one political force to another, if only it would be profitable. But at the same time, he continues to bribe voters with everything, in the hope that they will give their votes for a corrupt official who robbed them. Gufman did not answer according to the law for the illegally appropriated 96 real estate objects. In addition, journalists recently found out that more than two hundred objects were assigned. And also Gennady Gufman unprincipledly moves from one political force to another, in search of personal gain. The nationalists consider him a separatist and demanded his resignation. But despite all his criminal misdeeds, Gufman continues to infiltrate the trust of citizens by bribing them with food packages, a free bus and distributing points.
Gufman Gennady Leonidovich
Ex-Deputy of the City Council of the Dnieper. Born on August 28, 1970 in the city of Dnepropetrovsk.
After graduating from school, Gennady entered the Dnepropetrovsk Chemical and Mechanical College (now the Polytechnic College). Received the specialty “Operation of automatic devices”. In 2009, Hoffman became a certified economist at the Dnepropetrovsk National Mining University.
Gennady is married to Yana Gufman. She is the owner of the private enterprise “Legal company “Yur-Service Group” and co-owner (25%) of LLC “Dniprotrans-7” (provision of individual services). Politician's wife notary. The couple have four children.
Until 1994, Gennady Gufman was an ordinary worker at the city's factories: from 1988 to 1990 he worked as a milling machine operator at the Kultpobuttovary plant, from 1990 to 1994 as a plastics presser at the Progress plant. But in 1994, Gennady Gufman became an economist, and then the head of the logistics and sales department at the Metalobud plant. From 1997 to 2004 he worked as a manager of the Ukrainian-German enterprise “Diksiko LTD”, and from 2004 to 2009 he worked as a commercial director of a subsidiary with foreign investments “Techinvest”. In parallel, Gufman is engaged in science – in 2005 he participates in international conferences with reports: “Days of Science – 2005”, “Economics and Marketing in the 21st Century”, scientific publications appear. In 2009 he graduated from the Dnepropetrovsk National Mining University with a degree in business economics. In general, it is 2009 that becomes a turning point in the fate of Gennady Gufman. That's when the “gray cardinal” appears. In 2009, Gennady Gufman took up political activities, becoming a deputy of the Dnepropetrovsk City Council, and also moved from the private sector to the municipal sector, taking the chair of the director of the KP Bureau for Registration of Property Rights and Real Estate Activities. As our hero himself later said in his interviews, he came into politics for two reasons – he was curious and plus a friend who invited him to the elections, in exchange for material assistance, offered parliamentary immunity, which, however, a month after his election, cancelled. However, it is unlikely that Gennady Leonidovich was upset by this fact: after being elected a deputy, he became the chairman of one of the most “profitable” commissions in any city council – on issues of communal property. Whether the authority of the newcomer played a role here or whether it was the result of the “support” of the Party of Regions, from which he came, is unknown, but the fact remains. Soon, the future “gray eminence” of the Dnieper became the director of the KP “Bureau for Registration of Property Rights and Real Estate Activities”. According to him, he sought to put things in order with the communal property of the city and wanted to create a single center in which all property belonging to the city would be put on a balance sheet. “In 2009, KP Bureau had one object of communal property on its balance sheet – its own office of 178 square meters. And as of December 2012, when I ceased to be the director of this KP, 703 objects with a total area of 114 thousand 323 square meters were registered. As of May 2015, there are already 744 objects with a total area of 168,000 meters,” Gennady Gufman proudly stated in an interview. Also, according to him, the city received from renting premises in his time up to 14 million hryvnia per year. However, not everyone agrees with such statements. Gennady Gufman is the owner and co-owner of a number of enterprises: PE “IP-Invest-Group” – 100%; Nikopol Crane Building Plant LLC – 100%; LLC “Popasnyansky glass factory” – 90%; PE Investment and Industrial Company IR-GROUP – 100% PE Abetina – 70% (demolition of buildings); LLC “Inter Service Plus” – 75% (manufacture of general purpose machinery and equipment); LLC “Prostir nerukhomist” — 100% (leasing and operating own or leased real estate); Nikopolsky RBV-7 LLC – 5% (production of concrete products for construction); Bud Komplekt Dniro LLC – 100% (non-specialized wholesale); Nikopol Casting and Mechanical Plant LLC (49.7%). In 2006 and 2010, Gennady was elected to the Dnipropetrovsk City Council from the Party of Regions. He was the head of the deputy commission on issues of communal property.
NOT official biography
According to the media, Gennady Hufman went to the city council of the Dnieper for parliamentary immunity. True, for local deputies it was canceled just in the same year when Gufman was elected to the city council. Gennady Gufman is the subject of several journalistic investigations about the transfer of real estate from the municipal property of the city to private hands.
Transfer of real estate to Solaris
THE PREMISES OF THE DNEPROPETROVSK CITY COUNCIL WAS ILLEGALLY TRANSFERRED TO THE RENAISSANCE-CLUB COMPANY
According to the information of the online edition “Faces”, the alienation of the premises belonging to the Dnipro city council according to the dubious scheme of LLC “Renaissance Club” and their subsequent resale took place. Thus, on October 19, 2011, the Dnepropetrovsk City Council decided to transfer the premises in the very center of Dnepropetrovsk, with an area of 192.6 m², where the Art Salon is located, to the balance sheet of the communal enterprise “Bureau for Registration of Property Rights and Real Estate Activities” of the Dnepropetrovsk City Council, which at the time of adoption decisions were headed by Gennady Gufman, chairman of the parliamentary commission on communal property.
Gufman man Vilkula
Before the 2019 parliamentary elections, Gennady Gufman intensively began to sow his constituency with “political buckwheat”. According to the journalists of the public movement “Chestno”, in March 2019, the candidate from the Opposition Platform for Life Party arranged a tea party with the residents of the village of Aviatorskoye. Already closer to the elections, the candidate for people's deputies laid tiles on the adjacent territories, handed out flowers and trees for planting, organized holidays, contests, repaired roads, launched a social route. In general, he did everything in order to please the voter. However, in the elections, Gufman received only “silver” and did not go to parliament. According to the activists of the public organization “Community Control”, there are many more episodes of the scandalous activities of the ex-deputy of the City Council. So, Gufman received an apartment for a pittance in the building where the explosion occurred after repairs for budget money. Gennady illegally set up kiosks throughout the city, seized and resold the premises of an art salon in the center of Dnipro. He also did not allow activists to get to the meeting of the City Council commission on communal property.
Gufman tried to ban the activist from attending commission meetings
05/13/2015 Recently, the odious deputy of the city council Gennady Gufman returned to Dnepropetrovsk (they say, from abroad). Gennady Leonidovich, obviously, left the country in somewhat different realities, so our visit to the Deputy Commission on Communal Property, of which he is deputy head, caused a fountain of emotions in Mr. Gufman. At first, Mr. Gufman persistently did not let our activist into the office, then he demanded to show his passport (and at the same time his residence permit) and make a copy of it, then he nevertheless allowed us to stay, but assured us that next time we were definitely not allowed to the commission. Apparently, Gennady Leonidovich still does not understand that the times when the city council was a closed club, and its commissions were circles of interest, are gone forever. Kolesnikov's actions in the prosecutor's office are qualified according to. 2 Art. 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (abuse of official position). According to the journalists of “Our Money”, in 2012 the State Enterprise “Research and Design-Technological Institute of the Pipe Industry named after. Ya. Yu. m. and 190 sq.. m. buildings of “public catering” at a deliberately reduced price, despite the fact that the local authorities could not alienate the donated property to private structures. On behalf of the City Council, the sale and purchase agreement was signed by the director of the Department of Corporate Rights and Legal Support of the Dnepropetrovsk City Council Oleksandr Velichko, and the transactions were certified by the notary Yana Gufman, the wife of Gennady Hufman. In July 2016, Investdnipro LLC was registered with the Israeli company Zenter Development And Investments Ltd, the sole owner of which was Gennady Gufmana.
“Eastern Ukrainian language”
In the Dnipropetrovsk Regional Council, a deputy from the Opposition Platform for Life passed off the Russian language as “Eastern Ukrainian” The corresponding video began to be distributed on social networks.Speaking to colleagues, Gufman began his speech in the state language, but immediately after that he asked for permission to use a certain “Eastern Ukrainian”.
In Dnipro, they demand the dismissal of the deputy head of the regional council for the words “there is no war in Ukraine”
Relatives of the victims demand Gufman's resignation. In Dnipro, the military and relatives of the fighters who died in the Donbass picketed the regional council demanding the dismissal of the first deputy head of the Dnipro regional council and chairman of the HSE faction Gennady Hufman, who said at a press conference that “there is no war in Ukraine”. This is reported by the publication 056.ua. The action was held under the slogan “If this is not your war – this is not your country”. It was initiated by the public organization “Family circle of the dead heroes of the Dnepropetrovsk region”. The rally was attended by about 100 people. One of the representatives of the National Corps read out in the session hall an appeal that for the words “There is no war in Ukraine” Gennady Hufman should be deprived of the post of first deputy. Despite the fact that neither the action of the National Corps, nor his appeal in the session hall aroused interest either among the deputies or the media, Gennady Gufman answered “opponents”.
GENNADY GUFMAN: FROM Tsarev TO MEDVEDCHUK
Big boards appeared on the streets of the Dnieper, thesis advertising the program “Social Reconstruction”, initiated by a certain Gennady Gufman. At the bottom of a small text placed on billboards, the name and surname of the “initiator” modestly stands.. At the same time, there is no portrait of Gufman on the big boards, which is a rarity for small-town politicians who are accustomed to putting their faces on any surface.. However, if there was a photo of Gufman there, it would say absolutely nothing to the Dnipro people. But Gennady Leonidovich is not new to politics – for two whole convocations he sat in the chair of the city council deputy, but then he was unknown not only to the general public, but also to many local journalists, experts and political strategists. However, Gufman, who was doing frauds with communal property, did not strive for publicity at that time …
Wealthy man, but the origins of wealth is a mystery
Such activity of bribing voters in the elections raises a reasonable question – why did the deputy of the City Council so actively develop the constituency in the parliamentary elections? It should be noted here that Gennady Gufman is generally far from being a poor person.. Moreover, in the ratings of the richest city council deputies compiled by the Dnipropetrovsk media, Gennady Gufman traditionally holds leadership positions, which adds to his fame and media interest. However, the politician himself does not like to touch on this topic and prefers to avoid the topic when asked by journalists, speaking about himself rather as a person who has taken place in life, and not about a wealthy person.. It must be said that the dislike of the ex-deputy for the money issue is understandable, because with the reports of Gennady Gufman on millions of incomes annually, it is not entirely clear due to what his business actually achieves such success. Yes, and the income looks very uneven over the years: – in 2011, Gennady Gufman, working as the director of the KP “Bureau for Registration of Property Rights and Real Estate Activities” of the Dnepropetrovsk City Council and the director of the SE “IP Invest Group”, earned 1,632,377 hryvnias; – in 2013, the deputy's income amounted to UAH 127,387, including salary – UAH 17,787; – according to the results of 2014, Gennady Hufman earned UAH 7,219,790, of which the lion's share is UAH 7,103,538. – received from the alienation of immovable and movable property, and another 438,360 UAH were earned by members of his family. The post of director of the private enterprise “IP-Invest-Group” was listed as a place of work. 2015-2017 remained “blank spots” in the history of the formation of the welfare of Gennady Gufman, since at that moment he was not a deputy of the City Council and did not fall under the requirements of electronic declaration of assets and income. Gennady Hufman filed a declaration of his wealth as a candidate for people's deputies of Ukraine, thereby reporting on income and assets for 2018. According to the declaration in 2018, the “gray eminence” of the Dnipro earned 8,404,005 hryvnia, which is only slightly more than in 2013 with a completely different dollar exchange rate. At the same time, it is curious that two loans taken from Privatbank and Universal Bank, totaling more than UAH 2.4 million, fall on the share of income.. Another 517,889 hryvnia earned wife – Yana Hufman. Gennadiy Gufman owns a residential building with an area of 741.8 square meters, purchased in 2017 for UAH 787,280, and a land plot of 949 square meters worth UAH 121,900.. Zhenya owns an apartment of 52.4 square meters. Of the vehicles, Gufman owns two cars of the prestigious brand LEXUS models GX 470 and LX 570. The latter, by the way, cost the then deputy of the City Council 1,719,960 hryvnias.. Wife moved from Mazda to 5-year-old Volkswagen Passat in 2017. Also, as valuable property, Gennady Leonidovich declared men's watches of the prestigious and expensive brands Breguet, ULYSSE NARDIN, ROLEX DAYTONA and Zenith, at their price exceeding the amount of 137,300 hryvnias (100 living wages of able-bodied persons as of January 1, 2018), necessary for inclusion in declaration.
Earnings on the side – in the homeland of the president
A possible clue that answers the question about the income of Gennady Hufman may be the list of his proxies in the parliamentary elections on July 21, 2019. The CEC website speaks of three proxies: Alexander Bagatsky, a well-known city athlete, multiple winner and prize-winner of national and international kickboxing competitions and championships, who fought more than 200 fights; Nikolai Cherny – director of a number of enterprises owned by Gennady Gufman himself or his partner Evgeny Lifshits, also registered as a private entrepreneur; Evgeny Krivenko – Director of KP “Center for Electronic Payments of the Krivoy Rog City Council”. UAH 150,000 was allocated to the enterprise from the city budget to form the authorized fund, and another UAH 1.2 million. intended as financial support for the payment of salaries. It is curious that in just a month and a half of 2020, the Kryvyi Rih City Council Electronic Payment Center has already managed to receive UAH 1,710,878 at state tenders. And most importantly, no one will connect the hope of the Opposition Platform – For Life party for Gennady Hufman's victory in the parliamentary elections with some kind of fraud in Kryvyi Rih: his firms will still be “clean” from state tenders, and journalists will wonder where the “gray cardinal” has money.
Gufman is a man who brazenly impoverishes the Dnieper. He runs from one political force to another, as long as it is profitable. But at the same time, he continues to bribe voters with everything, in the hope that they will give their votes for a corrupt official who robbed them.
