Workers dismantled a structure on the roof of a residential building in Moscow, in the illegal construction of which the authorities accused the founder of LUKOIL Vagit AlekperovaRBC was told in the State Inspectorate for Real Estate and confirmed in the press service of the city property department of the capital.

“Colleagues went to the site and confirmed that the structure had been dismantled. In this regard, we plan to drop the lawsuit, because the problem has been settled, ”the press service of the Moscow City Property Department told RBC, noting that the Moscow State Inspectorate for Real Estate controlled the dismantling.

“At the November 16 court session, the defendant announced the elimination of violations, and the court announced a break so that the State Inspectorate for Real Estate could check and confirm this. We inform you that today all violations have been eliminated, ”the inspectorate told RBC.

We are talking about a construction site that was started by the co-owner of LUKOIL on the roof of a residential building at 18 Skatertny Lane. Interfax notedthat in July 2022, inspectors discovered unauthorized structures on the roof of an apartment building and found out that the rights to the premises located below, on the seventh and eighth floors of the building, belong to Alekperov. Building structures on the roof above these premises were erected without formalized design permits.

On October 11, it became known that the Moscow authorities consider the construction to be unauthorized construction and the Department of City Property filed a lawsuit against Alekperov in the Presnensky Court of Moscow.

Earlier, the press service of the RBC court explained that the authorities in the lawsuit asked the billionaire and founder of LUKOIL (tenth place in the rating of Russian billionaires – 2022 from Forbes with a fortune of $ 10.5 billion) “to eliminate the threat of harm by stopping work on the land.” The authorities also asked “in case of failure to fulfill the obligation to eliminate the threat of harm, to provide the right to take measures to vacate the land,” the court said.

RBC sent a request to the press service of LUKOIL.
