When a country is undergoing large-scale changes, side effects are very difficult to avoid. The restructuring and subsequent dismantling of the Soviet Union were accompanied by an increase in the activity of criminals. Vladimir Tyurin was one of the active participants in these events.
In the second half of the 20th century, the economy of the Soviet Union "grew" with factories and power plants that were built in Siberia. Many people living in the European territory of the country moved to new places in the hope of a better life. Vladimir Anatolyevich Tyurin was born on November 25, 1958 in an ordinary Soviet family. Parents lived in the working village of Tirlyansky on the territory of the Bashkir Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic. My father worked at a metallurgical enterprise. The mother was a kindergarten teacher. They lived, like everyone else in the area, modestly. They didn’t starve, but they didn’t boast either.
Three years later, my father moved his family to the famous city of Bratsk, which is located on the banks of the Siberian Angara River. A hydroelectric power plant was already in operation here and the buildings of an aluminum production plant were being erected. When Vladimir was seven years old, like all his peers, he went to school. Studying was easy for him. He was seriously fond of music and attended the sambo wrestling section. He played chess well. He knew how to find a common language with classmates. On the street he was respected for his courage and delivered blow. After some time, he was recognized as an informal leader among local teenagers.
Vladimir spent all his free time on the street, which did not prevent him from graduating from school in 1975 with a gold medal. Literally a week after the prom, he is imprisoned for participating in a tough fight. Just three months later, Tyurin is released under an amnesty. During this period, he managed to make connections among thieves and fraudsters. From this moment, law enforcement experts count his criminal record. By the beginning of the 80s, the future thief in law managed to get an incomplete musical education at the Moscow Gnessin School of Music.
For participation in the fight, he again received a term. After his release, he decided to quickly earn extra money by opening a video salon in his apartment. At that time, videotapes with action films, thrillers and pornographic films were massively imported into the country with the connivance of law enforcement agencies. However, the court sentenced Tyurin to five years in a corrective labor colony for molesting young people. In the zone, the inmates greeted him like a friend. In 1989 Tyurik, as they began to call him among "his own", was released and returned to Bratsk. There was already an open struggle for power and resources.
After the collapse of the USSR, large-scale privatization began in the country. In Bratsk, future effective managers and representatives of the criminals fought for the "tidbits" of public property. The stages of this struggle were sparingly reported on the television news. However, local residents witnessed the bloody massacre. After his release, Tyurin took the place of the assistant to the local authority Moiseev, nicknamed Masya. A few months later, competitors planted an explosive device in Masi's car. All passengers in the cabin were killed.
After this precedent, Tyurin became the "overseer" of the Irkutsk region. There was a lot of work. The enterprises of the aluminum industry, the pulp and paper complex, forestry and the railway were transferred to private ownership. It was necessary not only to observe these processes, but also to participate in privatization. Tyurik recruited proven fighters who controlled the state of key facilities. He equipped his headquarters with a gym. This was the custom throughout the country.
Essays on personal life
The struggle for the redistribution of public property involved not only criminals, but also representatives of law enforcement agencies. Tyurin acted very carefully. I used complex techniques and creativity in its purest form. He married a Russian woman who remained a citizen of Kazakhstan. They had children - two sons. And the father of the family received Kazakh citizenship. After a certain period, the marriage broke up. By this time Tyurik had moved to a permanent place of residence in Moscow. I visited Siberia only for inspection purposes.
Once Vladimir Tyurin caught the eye of the famous opera singer Maria Maksakova. After a long courtship, the singer agreed to enter into a relationship with him. For several years they lived as husband and wife. However, the marriage was not formally registered. By that time Tyurik was already a crowned thief in law. According to the regulations, he was forbidden to have a family. At the same time, Maksakova bore him two children - a boy and a girl. But she did not succeed in achieving the desired stamp in her passport. After a while, they parted peacefully. Maksakova married another, and Tyurin moved to Spain.
Suspicions and facts
In recent years, reports of criminal showdowns in the press have appeared very rarely. There is a simple explanation for this fact. Those authorities who survived the acute phase of the struggle for property are now striving to give themselves respectability. They legalize their capital acquired in illegal ways in all possible ways.
Vladimir Tyurin is no exception. He tries to lead a calm and even secretive lifestyle. A whole team of lawyers keeps track of all materials related to past events and cases in the information field. Several times, criminal cases were opened against Tyurin. But none of them got to court.
