What kind of business did Sergei Furgal, the arrested governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, have

The governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, as it should be for civil servants, transferred all his assets to trust management, thus remaining the co-owner of two companies engaged in the wholesale of electrical equipment, construction, chemical and insulating products, as well as providing financial services for business. At the same time, his wife, Larisa Starodubova, owns shares in five more organizations, including the production of steel and the sale of scrap.

Sergei Furgal has been in charge of the Khabarovsk Territory since September 28, 2018, but before his appointment as governor, he was a quite successful businessman.

Own companies

As is known from open sources on the Internet, not confirmed by any documents, in the late 1990s, the older brothers of the former governor, Alexei and Yuri, actively traded scrap metal with the Chinese city of Heihe. Alexey attracted Sergey to the business. The brothers were able to obtain the building of a former illegal bottling shop, but after a failed attempt to open a shop there, they sold the building. This transaction constituted the first capital for the future business.

Reference! Furgal Sergey Ivanovich became the Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory in September 2018 and was removed from office in July 2024 in connection with his arrest and charges of organizing murders 15 years ago.

In the same way, the opening by the businessman of the MIF-Khabarovsk company together with Nikolai Mistryukov, the founder of which, according to an extract from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, Dzhunusov Rustam Dzhambulovich, was in fact not confirmed. Of course, now it is difficult to reliably say what happened in the 90s and early 2000s. Therefore, let’s move on to the business, the details of which are documented.
