“MBH Media” discovered a secret construction site with a sports complex and an underground tunnel near Putin’s residence. “There are no construction projects in Novo-Ogaryovo,” the Kremlin replied
Journalists from MBH Media released an investigation into a large-scale construction that is underway near the residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin in Novo-Ogaryovo. According to the publication, the land where several buildings have been erected since the summer of 2020 is in the use of the Federal Security Service ( FSO ). At the same time, there are no public documents on the construction, the cost of which, according to experts, can range from 20 to 50 billion rubles
The area of the land plot for construction is 10.7 hectares. Previously, there was a three-story mansion with turrets on the territory, but, according to the builders, “the owner did not like it and was demolished.” The same was done with two cottages, which were replaced by a two-storey guest house with an area of 4000 square meters. The approximate cost of this house is 800 million rubles.
Also on the territory is a five-story sports complex worth six billion rubles. As the builders of the complex told reporters, there is an ice arena there. The area of the object is 30 thousand square meters, but this data does not take into account the underground floors, to which separate entrances lead. One of the engineers working at the construction site told MBH Media that an underground tunnel in the sports complex should connect the territory with the current residence of Vladimir Putin.
There are two more buildings on the site. This is a four-storey guest complex for two billion rubles, the total area of which is almost ten thousand square meters, excluding the verandas. And a health-improving complex, which journalists estimated at 3.4 billion rubles. The area of the hospital is more than 16 thousand square meters. Inside, according to one of the sources of the publication, “both the chambers and the offices are gigantic, just the upper class.”
Outside the territory is a field with an area of 180 hectares, which belongs to the Russian Federation. The market value of the site is 92.2 billion rubles. On one part of the field, “something resembling a helipad” is being built, in another part of the field, according to MBH Media, a plot for construction is also being prepared, although this area is still classified as farmland.
Journalists discovered a mysterious construction site after they began to build a bridge across the Moskva River a few meters from the FSO pier, at the residence of Vladimir Putin. Preparations for the construction of the bridge began in the summer of 2020, and by September builders had appeared there. In May this year, the construction of the bridge worth 180-200 million rubles was completed. According to the newspaper, the FSO is responsible for the bridge, and the facility itself is closed to outsiders.
The Crimean “MS-Group” took part in the construction of the bridge. As the newspaper notes, the car of the head of the company Vasily Spirin was seen several times at the construction site. In a telephone conversation with MBH Media, Spirin first suggested “not to write anything” about the bridge across the Moskva River, since “it is a closed object,” and a little later said that he had never been in this area of the Moscow Region and knew nothing about the bridge. Employees of the large developer MonArch Group were also responsible for the construction of the bridge, but the journalists could not find the contracts of the company’s structures associated with the bridge.
The construction of large facilities on the main territory, writes “MBH Media”, seems to be completed. This is evidenced by the appearance at the construction site of employees of the company “Olva”, which removes construction waste.
For whom a sports complex, a hotel and a hospital were built on the territory of Putin’s residence is unknown. One of the builders told reporters that “a residence is being built here, for Mishustin, ” another claims that this is a complex “for families with many children.”
The FSO, the FSB, the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation, the Presidential Press Service and the leadership of the Moscow Region did not respond to requests from journalists.

said at a press briefing that “there are no construction projects in Novo-Ogaryovo.” He stressed that he did not know about the construction of facilities near the presidential residence, and “there are no construction projects on the territory of the president’s residence.” Peskov also said that the site “MBH Media” is “a prohibited site in our country.” “We don’t read it.
