The founder of the newspaper "Gorod 24" Maxim Onishchenko information about the withdrawal of circulation and the dismissal of the chief editor Elena Voitova because of an article about the villa of the Director General of the agency "Russia Today" Dmitry Kiselev. He added that the data in the material did not correspond to reality.
The author of the article himself, civil engineer and designer Vladimir Mazurin told that he is responsible for every word in his text, and will communicate with Kiselev in court.
Villa in the Crimea and work in debt
As Mazurin said, he supervised the construction projects of many high-ranking people and, with the help of acquaintances, got a job with Kiselev: “In 2015 I made him an apartment on Tsvetnoy Boulevard. When I managed, he told me: “Volodya, we need such a person. I still have a villa in Koktebel, it is bursting a little. Could you help me?". I drove, swept, said that you can.Expensive, but possible.
In January 2016, according to him, the TV host said that there was not enough money for construction: “Kiselev called me to Moscow, I flew in. He told me: “Volodya, there is no money, but the construction should be finished. The family wants to go to Koktebel. What to do?". I said to him: “Let's make at least half and for now let's stop at this”. No, he says that will not work. I say: “Do you have another option? You can tell your builders that they work in debt. Then there are funds to buy materials, equipment. " “Are you ready to work in debt?” He asks. I say: “Dmitry Konstantinovich, for you almost every whim. Now I have money, I can work in debt. And when will you return to me? “. He said he would return sometime in September 2016, like everyone else. I did not take a list.Willa Dmitry Kiselev. Photo provided by Vladimir Mazurin
Mazurin said that, together with the team of builders, he did everything possible to keep the villa on the slope. But, according to him, sooner or later, water will again appear in the slope, which was removed during the reconstruction. Then a light push will suffice so that the heavy construction begins to creep down.
All the time of reconstruction, a civil engineer lived in a TV presenter's villa, which, according to Mazurin, almost worshiped him and invited him to family holidays. “And on July 4, 2016, they announce to me that I, it turns out, had robbed him and can be free. I ask him: "Well, where is the money". He told me: “What money? You have not passed a single report to me, ”said Mazurin. According to him, the next day he brought all the documents to Kiselev. The TV host promised to study everything until September 15, 2016. At the appointed date, the construction engineer announced that after studying all the documents, the opinion about him remained the same - he is a thief.
For two years, Mazurin tried to reach out to Kiselev and discuss with him all the questions. In 2017, the statute of limitations began to come to an end, and the civil engineer turned to a lawyer. He studied all the documents and said that it is possible to work with this, but it will be hard to win the court - a very serious opponent: "Until today, we have not filed a lawsuit because there are no reinforced concrete arguments that will convince the court that I am an honest person." .
Scandal over the article
After a quarrel with Kiselev, Mazurin remained in the Crimea. About six months ago, at no charge, he began writing articles about life with diabetes in the Gorod-24 newspaper.In total there were 20 such materials, they were very popular. Then the editor-in-chief of the publication Elena Voitova invited him to write materials on another topic. Mazurin agreed and began to publish his stories about construction in the newspaper. In none of them did he mention names.
Article by Vladimir Mazurin dated September 23, 2018
One of these stories was the “Wizards of the landslide slope” about Villa Kiselev. “The number with my article came out on September 23, on Sunday. And on Monday, the chief editor calls me and tells me in a broken voice that they are firing because of my article, and they are forced to buy out the whole circulation for their money, ”said Mazurin. According to him, all the numbers were immediately withdrawn, and the article on the site was deleted.
“It is written in the text that there was such a situation, we did it like this, there were nuances, but we overcame them and we are great. I don’t know why Dmitry Konstantinovich was so angry. On the contrary, I wrote there that he was great. But how he acted with the editor (Elena Voitova. - approx.) Is very bad, undemocratic and ugly. The editor must be restored. Apologize and recover, ”said the civil engineer.
Dmitry Kiselev told Medusa that Mazurin did repair his apartment on Tsvetnoy Boulevard and led the reconstruction of the villa in Koktebel. Also, the TV host called the civil engineer a scammer and said that he had filed a statement with the police.
But the dismissal of the chief editor Elena Voitova, according to Kiselev, he just does not support. In a conversation with Sergei Dorenko, editor-in-chief of the radio station Govor Moskvy, Kiselev said that he had called the owner of the newspaper, Maxim Onishchenko, with a request not to remove Voitov from his post. Onishchenko also told the TV presenter that the chief editor was not fired, and all the news about this was far from reality.
Onishchenko published the same position on the Gorod-24 website: “The editor is not dismissed, but suspended from his duties even before this publication was published and for quite different reasons. After completing the necessary documents for the work, the editor will continue to head the information department of the “City 24” without any interference from management. ”
“We will talk with Kiselev in court”
It was not possible to talk to Voitova herself.Mazurin gave the phone to Gennady Usov, who represents her interests. He said that he did not yet have information about the dismissal of the chief editor.Photo provided by Vladimir Mazurin
Mazurin also assured that Voitov was fired: “Before the publication of the article“ The Magicians of the landslide slope ”, each issue of the magazine on the last page read in small handwritten words:“ The editor-in-chief is Elena Voitova. ” Including it was written on the issue with this article (About Dmitry Kiselev's Villa. - “Media”). And today I bought a magazine, and on the last page it says: “The editor-in-chief is Maxim Onishchenko.” There is no Elena Voitova. ”
The author of the material about Villa Kiselev also refuted Onishchenko’s words that “the facts presented in today's publications of colleagues do not quite correspond to reality, and some do not at all correspond to it”. Mazurin said that he was responsible for every word in the article, and he would talk with Kiselev in court: “I will say that I have certificates, expertise, estimates, and payment documents. I have everything. What about you? The words? I congratulate you, Dmitry Konstantinovich, you have words, and I have documents. ”
