“Boatswain” under investigation

Khanty-Mansiysk inter-district prosecutor Mikhail Pavlov resumed criminal prosecution of the recidivist Ivan Shavrin for extortion in a particularly large amount

The decision of the deputy prosecutor Vitaly Belentsov, who freed the criminal from punishment in February 2017, was declared illegal and abolished. The case was taken from the archive and, almost a year later, on December 25 it was taken to the investigation in the investigative department of Khanty-Mansiysk. Shavrin, better known in criminal circles, nicknamed “Vanya Boatswain” for clubfoot, runs the risk of once again being on the plank in the near future for a period of 4 to 15 years.


The first investigative actions in the case are scheduled for December 27, 2017.

34-year-old Shavrin, who has two convictions for the theft (Article 166 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and robbery (Part 3, Article 162 of the Criminal Code) was caught sight of law enforcement on January 18, 2017. On that day, Gopnik, as part of an organized group, extorted a large sum of money from the former chief accountant of a local enterprise that ceased to exist in 2015.

Shavrin demanded to transfer to him two million rubles in favor of four persons who had previously worked in the organization. The names of the customers of the crime “Boatswain” called the bookkeeper at the next meeting, which was held under the supervision of the employees of the RPA. It is noteworthy that one of Shavrin’s clients is a former employee of the interior.

Act “not according to the concepts” – harness the cop, the extortionist was due to a complete lack of means of subsistence. On the audio record, during which the victim informs about the unlawfulness of the requirements and does not recognize the debt, Shavrin actively insists on transferring money to him.

During the operational development of the organizer of the crime – a resident of the city of Omsk Alexei Esipov, who was recorded on audio, admitted in an appeal to the “Boatswain”.

The threat of murder at the first contact of the injured party with the criminals was confirmed by two direct witnesses who testified during the preliminary examination.

Journalists of the newspaper “No censorship” found that the incident was unfolding around LLC “KhMBK”, which ceased to exist at the end of 2015. Having fallen into a difficult situation due to economic sanctions, the enterprise involved in the development of oil and gas fields turned out to be on the verge of bankruptcy.

At the general meeting, the collective of “KhMBC” split in two. One half demanded “an immediate settlement and a runaway.” The second, led by an accountant (who was subjected to extortion two years later), decided to stay and fight to the end, without demanding repayment of salary debts, until the enterprise was resuscitated.

Those who stayed, in the end everything turned out. Although the risk was great and the restoration of solvency took about one and a half years. A new enterprise was created. His new leadership, in addition to regular salaries at his new place of work, could give everyone who did not quit the case in difficult times to issue such a premium that in size blocked all debts at the previous place of work. Although there was no legal basis for recognizing the debts of a third party organization.

Naturally, this development was not liked by those who escaped from the sinking ship.

Four former workers, after numerous slanders in the control bodies and unsuccessful attempts to block the work of new offices, appealed to the representative of the criminal world of Khanty-Mansiysk – Ivan Shavrin (“Boatswain”). He, without having the necessary number of heels in his forehead, without his consent with his “bosses”, put over a million more in his pocket, in excess of his wishes, and eventually was convicted of legally qualified extortion of money from a person who had nothing to do with possession or management , nor to the debts of the liquidated company.
