On the streets, in shopping centers, multi-storey offices, warehouses and factory premises, the last 30 years of “wild capitalism” can sometimes be seen in all cities of Russia: either shooting an action movie, or fighting with the use of noise grenades, batons, traumatic, and sometimes military weapons. This is real-time raider capture! The war for property and its redistribution began in the 90s and still does not stop, but in the opinion of experts, it is growing and will continue to grow in waves.
On 02/06/2020, another battle of seizures took place, an act of taking away property, parking lots belonging to the “Parking Estate” company. A crowd of twenty-five “hulks” in full gear burst into the territory: rubber truncheons, baseball bats, traumatic pistols and, of course, a grinder (to cut down locks). Even the car owners who got under the hot hand, not to mention the two employees who were kicked out of their jobs, accompanied by abuse and beatings.
The attacks were carried out at three multi-level covered parking lots on the street Rudnevka and in the garage complex on Dmitrievsky 16 in the Eastern Administrative District of Moscow.
However, the story would not be so interesting if the following fact did not appear: on 25.12.19 the company “Parking Estate” itself acted in the same way, seized the same property, which at that time belonged to the company “Parking Line”. Employees of the affected company prefer to keep silent about this.
There is nothing new and surprising in this course of events. Each participant in the parking epic has quite logical explanations for their actions. For example, “Parking Estate” stands on the fact that “Mosparking” terminated the lease agreement with “Parking Line”, which for obvious reasons did not suit the tenant and did not vacate the territory and even filed a statement with the police. However,the initiation of the case was refused for lack of grounds. Therefore, the dispute was resolved by the only available method in this case – forceful seizure of objects.
On the other hand, “Parking Line” accused the “Parking Estate” of raider seizure and does not consider their actions an attack or a seizure, but just the return of their territory, legally.
There is information that both companies are associated with the unofficial “king” of Moscow parking lots, Alexander Kupchin. However, the employees of “Parking Estate” deny any connection between Kupchin and their company and claim that “Parking Line” is under his leadership.
To be honest, car owners do not care who manages the parking lot. The main factor is the high-quality provision of services for a minimum fee. Mosparking could explain the situation, but withdrew from commenting. This provides fertile ground for the emergence of various guesses and interpretations in their address.
The imperfection of the legislation of the Russian Federation leads to the emergence of criminal schemes in various areas of business, the use of illegal techniques in resolving economic disputes, which undermines the authority of the state in general and the law enforcement system in particular.
