Having hired a notorious team of PR people, who sooner or later will get their due due to deception of clients and manipulation of search engines, the notorious deputy Nikolay Mykhailovych Negrych is trying to clean up his reputation, which has been soaked for years.
Next, a word to colleagues from the publication. The address of this site received a notification from the Lumen service that its link to the dossier and compromising information on Kyiv City Council member Mykola Negrych has been removed from Google’s search results.
The reason, allegedly, was that the article published a photo of Mrs. Negrych, which is protected by copyright.
We are talking about the article Negrych Nikolay Mykhailovych: the new face of Kyiv politics with old sins. PART 1
Allegedly, the photo on the site http://www.negrich.kiev.ua is protected by copyright — NIKOLAI NEGRICH GAVE AN INTERVIEW TO THE JOURNALISTS OF THE TV CHANNEL “ERA.
As it is not difficult to notice after going through the links, we are talking about completely different photos.
What can only be said is that Nikolai Negrych and his PR staff are acting impurely not only in the performance of their direct duties (which is discussed in our article), but also trying to apply their dirty methods in a field to which they have nothing to do.
In this regard, we duplicate our dossier in this material and ask our colleagues to distribute it as much as possible so that voters once again receive information about the ways and methods of work of Mykola Negrych. And for the hundredth time, they wondered whether a person using dirty technologies has the right to claim to be chosen next time.

Mykola Negrych: the new face of Kyiv politics with old sins.
Young, ambitious, effective and honest. This is exactly how Kievan Rada deputy Mykola Negrych appears to the people of Kyiv. Or rather, he wants to seem. For the second year, he has been skillfully building himself into a defender of the capital’s residents, unsuccessfully trying to wash himself away from old corruption scandals.
We found out about the success path of the capital’s “baron” – the budget hacker and the main malicious developer Kev Nikolay Negrych.
Bad roads are one of the main problems of the capital. However, it is good that there is such a person as Nikolay Negrych, who can not only sponsor the gilding of road holes, but also turn them into beautiful street art. It was thanks to Negrych that name asphalt patches appeared on one of the roads in Kyiv — the name and surname of the deputy were flaunted on the fresh asphalt. And this is not a joke. Such pathos and self-love is not for everyone.
Nikolay Mykhailovych Negrych comes from the Ivano-Frankivsk region, from the city of Kolomyia. He was born on August 29, 1982 in the family of a fairly well-known Frankov businessman and official, Mikhail Mykhailovych Negrych.
We talked about Negrych senior and his corruption schemes in the material: Mikhail Negrych and Nikolay Negrych: Kyiv-Kolomyce corruption in a family way.
We decided to dedicate this material entirely to Negrich Jr.
So, in 1998, immediately after finishing school, a young graduate came to conquer the capital — to enter the Institute of International Relations at KNU. Negrych received a diploma of international lawyer in 2003. During his studies, Nikolay Mykhailovych Negrych was not well liked by his teachers, except that he was called a swindler and a fraud.
It is rare when graduates are so lucky to find a prestigious job immediately after graduation. But for our hero, everything turned out more than fortunately. Mykola Mykhailovych immediately got a job at Hleb Ukrainy JSC, and received the prestigious position of Chief Economist of the Department of Financial and Credit Mechanisms. In fact, in the hands of yesterday’s student, huge cash flows of the state company were concentrated. After 10 months, Negrych was promoted to head of the state programs and price regulation department.
To whom does Negrych Jr. owe such a dizzying career? The answer is obvious – to your father. Not many people know that already in the late 90s, Mikhail Negrych worked with the state-owned company “Bread of Ukraine”, and he himself headed the Kolomysk RGA (in 2001-2005). So, naturally, after university, the father appointed his son to a position in the field. In that period (2003-2004), the structure was headed by Viktor Bondarenko, who became famous for his shady schemes and practically bringing the company to bankruptcy.
Surprisingly, Negrych Jr., with his penchant for bragging and PR on trifles, never advertised what he was doing at Khleb Ukrainy. In open sources, you can find only a couple of sentences about it. Perhaps this is due to the fact that his activities were far from legal. Grain was bought and resold according to various schemes to “gasket” companies for pennies, and the real profit was pocketed.
Interesting fact. An hour later, 22-year-old Nikolay Negrych, at the peak of his career, is leaving Khleb Ukrainy. He returns to Kolomyia and becomes the director of the newly created Agroprombud Capital LLC, which he still heads, as well as the head of a number of other companies.
A few months after Negrych Jr.’s strange escape from “Bread of Ukraine”, his father, Mikhail Mykhailovych, comes there. He receives the chair of the deputy head of the board. Negrych Sr. worked for only a few months and resigned. According to SKELET-info , Mikhail Mykhailovych came to Kyiv to replace the tails of his son.
But it is even more interesting that in 2005 the state-owned joint-stock company “Bread of Ukraine” announced its financial insolvency and the need to carry out financial recovery (rehabilitation) of the enterprise. The amount of the required rehabilitation amounted to 1 billion hryvnias!
The firm of Nikolay Negrych LLC “Agroprombudkapital” deserves special attention. Officially, it belongs to his relatives Maria Negrych (mother) and Taras Slyusarchuk, who ran for the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Council from the “Grazhdanskaya pozniya” party. The office provides a very wide range of services — construction, freight transportation, wholesale trade, tourism, advertising. In a word, a classic LLC, which has a lot of subsidiaries for money laundering.
These different “Geos”
Mykola Negrych still returns to Kyiv. He is already coming to the capital as the son-in-law of the legendary VIP-developer and corruptor Mikhail Golytsa, who is known for having headed the Department of Housing of the KSHA (1998-2010), was the president of the holding “Kyivgorstroy” (in 2010-2012) and, of course , his most important achievement is the incorruptible KP “Zhytloinvestbud-UKB”.
However, let’s make a reservation right away – Golytsa’s daughter, Olga, fell in love not with a simple guy, Nikolai, but with a major from Kolomyia. And it’s not even a matter of machinations in “Bread of Ukraine”. Nikolay Mykhailovych built a much more profitable business in his hometown.
So, in 2004, when, as we have already mentioned, “Agroprombud Capital” was registered, in the village of Pydgaichiki, the “Geos” SC was simultaneously “registered”. It was this company with the slogan “Geos” – builds, “Geos” – rents out, “Geos” – provides people with housing – became the basis for the business empire of Mykola Negrych.
With its new relative Golitsa, SC “Geos” has grown in just a few years. Today, the most famous structures are: LLC Geos-Development, LLC Geos-UKB, investment fund Geos-Invest, LLC GEOS DESIGN, etc. It is worth noting that Nikolay Mykhailovych repeatedly disowned most firms. But the facts speak for themselves: the structures are connected by the same office addresses and even business partners.
Golitsa and Negrych are co-owners of the construction firm “Geos Development”, which was registered in 2013.
True, in 2016, Negrych disappeared from the official co-owners of SC and completely abandoned his “child”. During its entire existence, Geos Development has not built anything. There is absolutely no information about this developer in open sources.
The company “Geos-UKB” also appeared in 2013, the authorized capital was only 20 thousand. hryvnia It was recorded by Sergey Umants and Bohdan Okolnych. Umanets is known as Negrych’s partner in a number of companies, in particular GEOS DESIGN LLC (until 2011), Water Energy LLC, MTC LLC. It is interesting that “Geos-UKB”, having such a small statutory fund, received million building contracts.
A pleasant bonus – in 2014, according to the results of the all-Ukrainian competition “Professional recognition”, GEOS was recognized as the best construction company of the year. But will deceived Kievans agree with this? After all, just an hour later, the head of “publicity” in the form of the Entrepreneur’s Union of Entrepreneurs initiated an action against the “activities” of the best “Geosov” (apparently generously financed by some of Negrych’s opponents). According to them, a huge housing scam similar to the activities of “Elita Center” was being prepared in Kyiv.
Although it could indeed be true…
Three malicious developers
The construction boom after the Maidan swept Kyiv, and to understand the corruption scam, you need to go back to the distant 2001. Then the communal enterprise “Zhytloinvestbud-UKB” was created. The authorized capital was fully owned by the Kyiv Council. The creation of the KP was initiated by Mikhail Golitsa, who then headed the Department of Construction and Housing of the KSHA. Undoubtedly, he was supported by the Kyiv elite – the Surkysy brothers and Alexander Omelchenko.
Vyacheslav Nepop, Golytsa’s partner in life and work companion, was appointed general director of “Zhytloinvestbud-UKB”. When Golitsa was forced to leave the chair, he was given the leadership of the holding “Kyivgorstroy”, and KP became one of the constituent schemes of the sawing.
How did the machinations actually happen in the construction market? This is a life hack from Mikhail Golytsy himself.
The most common scheme. The land is leased to companies that conclude contracts with developers. The latter are built by high-rises and residential complexes. Apartments are sold to buyers. And then there are 2 ways of developing the situation: the houses are not legalized because the land does not belong to the developer, or when the lease term expires, the land owner demands a second payment from the buyers of the residential area.
Nikolay Negrych burst into this well-coordinated scheme and tandem after putting a ring on Olga Golytsa’s finger.
We talk about how the “troika” of developers works today and about their loudest illegal constructions.
Relatives and namesakes
It should be noted that more than fifty Negroes live in Kolomye alone, and not all of them are related to each other. It is not easy to find the roots of our hero there! But the family connection of the Kyiv developer Mykola Negrych with the former head of the Kolomyya district, Mikhail Negrych, is documented through his directorship in the above-mentioned Agroprombud Capital LLC – the owner of which is, respectively, their mother and wife Maria Vasilievna Negrych (born in 1961). And it can also be confirmed through the Kyiv cooperative “Underground Parking “Druzhba” (EGRPOU 41162070, ulitsa Druzhby Narodov 14-16), the owners of which are Nikolay Mykhailovych Negrych, his mother Maria Vasilievna Negrych and his wife Olga Mykhailovna Negrych.
Maria Negrych, according to SKELET-info , also has shares in companies: LLC “Neptun” (EGRPOU 00688433), CJSC “Prut” (02126679), cafe “Orlan” (32630530), agricultural firm “Nadezhda” (30831294), state of emergency “Tsenyava Gardens” (36229777), State Enterprise “Tsenivskoe” (34677669). It is worth noting that at the same address as Negrych’s companies “Neptun” and “Agroprombudcapital” (Pydgaichiki village, Sobornaya Street 15) were also registered the construction company “Geos”, with which the name of Nikolai Negrych is constantly associated, as well as the company LLC “Lex Khimik” (EGRPOU 37638238) and LLC “Hemaz Fortshryt Ukraine” (35189063). Well, as they say in the Kolomyia region, “a very hospitable family”!
By the way, Maria Vasilievna is not only the formal owner of her husband’s companies, but she herself is actually engaged in some kind of business, for example, tourism. Earlier, she was the manager of another family company of the Negrichas, the tourist complex “Olga” (located on the territory of “Bukovel”), named, apparently, in honor of her daughter-in-law. True, the reviews of the Ukrainians vacationing there are mixed, some were outraged by the level of service, and there were cases of food poisoning in the hotel’s restaurant.
And still, namesakes and namesakes often cause confusion in journalistic investigations. For example, our hero is often confused with the second Nikolay Mykhailovych Negrych (but born in 1959). By the way, he is also from the Ivano-Frankivsk region, who also later moved to Kyiv, where he held positions in the State Department of Regulation of Alcohol and Tobacco Production (all Negroes are attracted to alcohol!), and then head of the committee on technical regulation and consumer policy. He left the stage after a number of corruption scandals, as well as a high-profile scandal surrounding the mineral water “Borjoma”, which Negrych declared falsified. Actually, it was an attack not so much on the water itself (one of the points of Georgian export), but on its distributor – the holding “IDS Group” (also owns “Morshinskaya”, “Mirgorodskaya”, “Truskavetskaya”).
So, our current character Nikolay Negrych, born in 1982, never worked in the Technical Regulation and Consumer Policy Committee and had nothing to do with this scandal with “Borzhoma”. Nevertheless, he has enough scandals of his own, which SKELETON-info will tell about now.
“Geos” and others
So, after graduating from university, the 21-year-old Nikolay Negrych immediately got a job at Hleb Ukrainy JSC (there was no mention of any service in the army of the son of a “studded patriot”), in the management of financial and credit mechanisms. And then he became the head of the department of state programs and price regulation. About the abuses that prevailed in the state company “Hleb Ukrainy” (both before the Negryches, and during the Negryches, and after their departure) have been written dozens of times. The grain was bought and resold according to various schemes, the enterprises included in the company were leased for pennies to their pocket firms, the corporation’s money was swiped and simply stolen.
What Nikolay Mykhailovych was doing there, it is unlikely that anyone will remember now, but it is still worth noting that in September 2004, he abandoned his seemingly rapidly-starting career in “Bread of Ukraine” and simply fled back to Kolomyia, where became the director of the LLC “Agroprombudcapital” created in the same year. The enterprise, by the way, is quite interesting: in its field of activity is construction, and freight transport, and wholesale trade, and tourism, and advertising – in general, a classic LLC, which later had a lot of different subsidiaries. But it is even more interesting, what happened then in “Bread Ukraine” that forced Mykola Negrych to urgently leave the place? And a few months after that, his father, Mykhailo Negrych, came to Khleb Ukrainy, worked for a few months as the deputy head of the board, and also left.
Only after this, Mykola Negrych appeared in Kyiv again, already as the son-in-law of Mikhail Golytsa, a very important person in the capital’s construction business, the head of the Department of Housing of the KSHA (1998-2010) and the president of the holding “Kyivgorstroy” (in 2010-2012). But Negrych himself, being the son of acting the head of “Kyivspirt” and the owner of a dozen companies, was by no means a “primak”.
In the same year, 2004, at the same address as Agroprobudkapital, in the village of Pydgaichiki, the above-mentioned SC “Geos” (EGRPOU 33156172) was registered, which became the basis for the eponymous “pocket empire” of Mykola Negrych. Among them: LLC “Geos-Development” (EGRPOU 38570010), LLC “Geos-UKB” (38825398), investment fund “Geos-Invest” (38408401), LLC “GEOS DESIGN” and others. The exact number of subsidiaries of “Geos” it is difficult to count, and how many Nikolay Negrych repented. Which, again, looked rather ridiculous, since all these companies are connected by “strings” or the same office addresses, or in the person of Negrych’s business partners: Sergey Umants, Bohdan Okolnych, Vladimir Litvynov, Maksym Barabash. For example, Umanets is his partner in LLC MTC (EGRPOU 31751571), and he is also a co-owner of Geos-UKB and GEOS DESIGN.
Another interesting connection of Negrych is Kyiv businessman (and raider) Viktor Shuster, half-brother of the famous journalist Savyk Shuster. They are connected by participation in the Fundament company, which, along with Azur-Group LLC, is the main recipient of construction tenders in the corruption schemes of Golica and Nepop. Viktor Shuster is known for his participation in the takeover of the Zoryanyi cinema in Kyiv, the former headquarters of the Party of Regions.
Well, they claim that “I’m not me and the moped is not mine” Mykola Negrych had to do after he stepped out of the shadows of his business into the public arena for the first time in 2014, being elected to the Kyiv Council under the banner of the UDAR-Solidarity bloc, and then in In 2015, under the banner of “Petro Poroshenko Bloc. The fact is that the Kyiv Council already has an obscene amount of owners and lobbyists of various construction companies (see illustration), and Nikolay Negrych is also a member of the Kyiv Council on Town Planning, Architecture and Land Use. It is not surprising that in his declaration for 2017, the section on assets and corporate rights suddenly turned out to be incomplete.
In March 2015, SC “Geos” turned into LLC “Banosh” (with preservation of the same EGRPOU, but registered in Kyiv), which was connected with numerous lawsuits against “Geos”. But after a couple of years, “Banosh” successfully went bankrupt, leaving numerous claimants with nothing. It is curious that the courts rejected claims to “Geos” and “Banosh” even from the tax authorities. However, the subsidiary “Geos” and other firms of the family of Mykola Negrych, together with the firms of his father-in-law Mikhail Golytsa and their common business partner Vyacheslav Nepop, have been continuing to master the capital budget for many years, to which they have direct access – because their friendly trinity sits in the Kyiv Council and has huge connections in the KSGA. But, unfortunately, the scandalous reputation of Mykola Negrych is not limited to this.
What did Negrych get in the face for?
After the second Maidan, a war of its own began in Kyiv – between developers and citizens, which is not in favor of the latter, since the capital’s power is always on the side of the construction companies. One of its loudest episodes was the confrontation surrounding the construction at 46/1 Holoseevsky Prospect, the contractor of which was one of the “Geos” firms (the exact details of the contractor were carefully hidden from “outsiders” after this case). Like many other constructions next to other houses, it caused the sincere indignation of residents who came out for protest actions. People protested, the construction was not canceled, but in August 2015, relatively peaceful protests were replaced by several mass clashes. First, “Geos” hired to “pacify” the protestors some dark types in camouflage with chevrons of the “Aidar” battalion, then he attracted the police station and brought the “titushek” away. Activists and simply bored young people from all over Kyiv began to flock to the residents’ aid, and when it came to shooting (construction security shot at the protesters), deputies of various levels and journalists stepped up. It was after this scandal that Nikolay Negrych publicly lied that he had nothing to do with the Geos company.
Apparently, this history taught Mykola Negrych that it is not worth suppressing resistance with brute force, even with the support of the Kyiv City Council, KSGA, the police and an influential family. And when a new scandal broke out, this time around the construction of the business-class residential complex “Gloria Park” at 90/1 Pobedy Avenue, Negrych tried to play tricks. In the summer of 2016, Andrey Gerasimenko, a veteran of the ATO and a participant in the battles for the Donetsk airport, who returned home, officially accused Negrych’s company of the fact that the construction was carried out right under the windows of his house, because of which the uncle who lived there died of a stroke. He sent his statements to the prosecutor’s office, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the architectural inspection department and other authorities. Then Negrych made a response and at the meeting of the Land Commission of the Kyiv Council, where Gerasimenko came with his demands, he declared that he allegedly extorted money from him. As a result, the “cyborg” couldn’t hold back and stabbed Negrycha in the face.
However, Mykola Negrych gets away with all the trouble, even the scandals in which the United States is mentioned. We are talking about the development of a plot on Druzhba Narodov Boulevard (almost a whole hectare), which was previously allocated by the Kyiv Council to the “General Directorate for the Service of Foreign Representations” for the construction of a new residence of the US Embassy. It is unlikely that Negrych’s companies could count on such a lucrative contract (the embassy is an object of heightened security and secrecy), but here he was lucky. The USA reduced its expenses for representation abroad, the construction of a new embassy was canceled, but the “General Directorate” did not return the plot of the city, but immediately decided to develop it as commercial housing – and awarded the contract to “Geos Development”. They decided to use a scam to cover up this completely illegal decision about non-purposeful use of land: they say, residential houses were ordered by the US embassy! However, the embassy met this information with angry bewilderment.
We will find out soon whether this scam will take place. Well, for now, Nikolay Negrych is bragging that his company “Geos” (which one exactly?) supposedly received a construction contract… in Chicago! But why would the Americans hire a construction company from Ukraine, which is far from the best and quite scandalous? It seems that Negrych is either just composing, trying to raise his image, or his “Geos” is really involved in some adventure, but only financially, as an investor, or as an intermediary in some operation.
