"Serdyukov’s dacha" is still in civilian life
Arbitration Court will consider an appeal of the Military Prosecutor’s Office in relation to a dispute over the legality of privatization of the land plot located outside Anapa, on which the so-called "Serdyukov’s dacha" is situated. The decision to return the land plot to the state, which was rendered earlier, has been overridden by the Supreme Court; at the new hearings, the court took the side of the land plot buyer, i.e. CityEngineering LLC. The territory in dispute was transferred to the military department in 2010 at the request of Anatoly Serdyukov, Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation; afterwards, the plot was sold as a non-core asset for 110 million roubles. According to lawyers, the state has legal opportunities to settle the dispute in its favor.
