Recall, as reported by “MK”, at the end of August, the widow of the great actor and his daughter, who has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy since birth, filed an application with the Internal Affairs Directorate for the Central Administrative District of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Moscow with a request to initiate a criminal case against Alexei Batalov’s “friends” Mikhail Tsivin and Natalia Drozhzhina. As follows from the statement, powers of attorney were fraudulently notarized, allowing to dispose of all property belonging to the Batalov family, all funds in accounts in domestic and foreign banks, access to all correspondence, the right to make any transactions on their behalf. And as a result, Gitana and Maria lost a huge fortune overnight. All real estate was transferred to Drozhzhina under a contract of lifelong maintenance with dependents. The accounts were emptied. “We were left without a livelihood,” the statement read.
After the publication in MK and its verification, which was initiated by the chairman of the TFR, Alexander Bastrykin, on September 18, a criminal case was opened. Investigators examined the title deeds, account statements, interrogated Gitana and Maria, numerous witnesses in the case. And on October 16, Batalov’s widow and daughter were recognized as victims.
“MK” contacted the eldest daughter of Alexei Batalov, Nadezhda Alekseevna. But in this whole sad story, she actively supported the sister suffering from cerebral palsy and her mother. Drozhzhina and Tsivin, in turn, made statements according to which they, they say, were ready to do business only with Nadezhda Batalova. Allegedly, they were only ready to transfer the property to her, as they feared that otherwise some other, third parties would lay hands on the elite real estate, who wanted to transfer all the Batalovs’ property to themselves. But despite the consent from Nadezhda Batalova, this transfer never happened. However, Nadezhda Alekseevna, who, by the way, is a witness in the case, has pleased us with other information in favor of the family.
“There is progress in the case, and in addition to recognizing Gitana and Masha as victims,” she said, “Nikita Mikhalkov’s help came, thanks to whom famous lawyers turned off the case. Now, in particular, Kucheren’s lawyer is participating in the negotiations, he represents the Public Council under the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia. On Friday, as far as I know, negotiations were held between all the participants in this case in the presence of lawyers. And it seems that Tsivin and Drozhzhina are ready to terminate all these agreements and restore the status quo.
– Gitana and Masha are aware of this?
– Yes, negotiations with lawyers were conducted in the presence of the victims. And it seems that the matter has moved forward. It seems that Tsivin and Drozhzhina were so pressed that they are ready to return everything. How it will open: return and do not sin.
– Would the family be satisfied with such a solution to the problem?
– I said from the very beginning that they need to return everything immediately. I don’t know why it was impossible to do this without such a wild scandal. Just terminate the contract if people don’t want to do business with you!
– Did you hope for a successful resolution of the situation?
– It would be absurd if it was possible to carry out such an operation in broad daylight and pretend that it should be so. I was already used to everything, but this situation was already beyond reason.
