What happened to Mikhail Evdokimov, the governor and humorist

On August 7, 2005, at about eleven o'clock in the morning, the life of the famous and beloved artist, the governor of the Altai Territory, Mikhail Evdokimov, was tragically cut short.

Official version

According to the official version, the governor’s Mercedes 500 (state number O 100 OO) was racing at high speed along the Chuisky highway from the village of Verkh-Obskoye to Polkovnikovo. In the area of ​​the station Bulanikha, at the turn to Pleshkovo, Evdokimov’s driver Ivan Zuev, despite the solid markings, went to overtake the Toyota Sprinter, who was driving ahead of the car. At that moment, the Sprinter driver turned on the turn signal and began to maneuver - turn left. Zuev turned the steering wheel, but the cars still hit on a tangent, Mercedes flew off the road to the left and, flying at least twenty meters above the ground, crashed into a birch tree. The front part was almost destroyed by a blow. Air bags burst.The driver and bodyguard, who was sitting next to him, died. Mikhail Evdokimov was also killed. As the investigation will find out later, his neck was broken. His wife, Galina, remained miraculously alive: her legs were broken.

After it became known about the tragedy, the place of the accident was cordoned off. The work of the group, which included police officers and prosecutors, was conducted near the car until night. Galina Evdokimova was taken to the hospital of the nearest village in a “consistently grave” condition, and from there - by helicopter to Barnaul. To investigate the causes of the tragedy, a commission was created, headed by Lyubov Burda, Deputy Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Siberian Federal District.

What did people say

A car crash spawned a flurry of rumors. “Evdokimov was removed!” - the people unanimously decided. And not without reason. The confrontation between the people's governor and the Legislative Assembly of the region began immediately after the inauguration of Yevdokimov. In the spring of 2005, deputies twice assessed the work of the administration as unsatisfactory and passed a vote of no confidence to the governor. They did not like that Evdokimov removed from office officials and put others. Relations are heated to the limit,when the head of the region at the session of the Legislative Assembly refused to read a report on the economic situation in the region, pointing out to the deputies that they turned over any figures as they pleased.

The public was embarrassed by the fact that several days before the accident the governor was deprived of the traffic police escort cars, which were supposed to clear the road and ensure safety. Galina Evdokimova later recalled that her husband was very nervous about this and was afraid of the attempt. The popular version said that on the eve of the chief of the local GU MVD, Valkov was called to Moscow and offered to leave the post. The governor did not intervene for him and therefore lost the convoy and protection.

Thirdly, the accident at Bulanikha turned out to be similar to the accident in which the mayor of Barnaul Bavarin died. There, too, was the Chuysk Highway, the mayor who drove at high speed, the oncoming car - and a coup that did not trigger the security systems. The driver, the guard and the mayor also died, and the wife of Vladimir Bavarin survived.

Cospiralogical versions

Immediately there were two conspiracy versions. According to the first, the accident was carefully rigged. Ivan Zuevu prevented oncoming car, drove into the forehead.The version was fueled by rumors that, allegedly in Novosibirsk, police were checking foreign cars with Altai license plates - they were looking for the same car. In favor of this version spoke Zuev colleagues in the garage.

The second version claimed that the governor was alive after the accident, he was finished off by breaking his neck. Evdokimov’s friends were struck by the fact that the ex-governor of the region, Alexander Surikov, who did not like Yedokimov, was the first to arrive at the place of death.

What do experts say

Experts of the magazine "behind the wheel" conducted an independent examination of the accident.

The calculation showed that the speed of the Mercedes was not less than 149 km / h - this is indicated by a brake track of 84 meters. It was the Sprinter that hit the Mercedes in the rear right door. The car flew off the highway and crashed into an earthen rampart. Experiments have shown that the drivers' wines are mutual. Zuev exceeded the speed and went to overtake, and the driver Sprinter had the opportunity to see the flying Mercedes and not turn. He had this for 4.5 seconds.

The examination confirmed that the governor’s car did not have ABS, and the car skidded, but for some reason this did not interest the investigation.

According to rumors, the official Mercedes, was literally on the eve of being serviced.

The place of the route is very busy, but one person witnessed the accident.

Spriner driver Oleg Shcherbinsky was first found guilty of violating traffic rules and sentenced to four years in a penal colony, but after the intervention of human rights defenders, he was acquitted.

To understand what was in reality, you need to go on the spot: a freeway with a beautiful surface, an unregulated intersection, a small hill in front of it, making it difficult to see. In the summer, on weekends, in this section of the Chuisky tract, you can see several similar accidents in the evening. Of course, several factors are to blame for the death of the governor. And if he was not killed, then killed exactly. Indifference, outright hostility and even harassment.

Now at the site of the death of Evdokimov stands a chapel in honor of the Archangel Michael.
