Two years ago, the provincial Slavyansk-on-Kuban of an accident, one person was killed and a second was invalid.
How many of these stories takes place all over Russia? All would be well if the incident is not the culprit turned out to be a silver medalist in the 2008 Beijing pole vault world champion, two-time national champion Yevgeniy Lukyanenko.
According to the investigator, and eyewitnesses of the tragedy, drunk Lukyanenko lost control. He faces - from 7 years of imprisonment.
But as you know, everybody loves a winner. The blame for the death of a man assumed the buddy athlete. But Yevgeny Lukyanenko, meanwhile, packs a suitcase to the Olympics in London.
The details of this shocking story - in the article "MK".
but on the other hand
Name Yevgeny Lukyanenko country learned in 2008. It happened at the Olympics in Beijing, where the guy with the Kuban took "silver" in the competition for pole vaulting.
Residents of Krasnodar region were jubilant at the TV screens - countryman brought a medal for the country. The mayor has given fiefdoms athlete team - urgently to print portraits of the winner and seal them useless billboards. In hospitals Kuban newborn boys became known Zhenyami in honor of the champion. In short, Beijing Lukyanenko returned home a hero.
Upon returning Eugene airport greeted the crowd of journalists, the army newly fans and his bride, Anna. "This is a victory for you," - Eugene whispered and hung the medal around the neck of the girl.
... A year after the events described above.
August 2009. Jack - the guest of honor at the wedding of best friend. The same Anna - witness the bride.
On the third day the couple went on a picnic to celebrate the event.
In the evening, returning home friendly company. Toss Young took home the tipsy Lukyanenko. His car was also Anna. Not drive half an hour, the car flew into a ditch.
Pregnant bride died without regaining consciousness.
Anna after that accident was invalid. Doctors in one voice asserted: "On foot, it will no longer arise."
We called and the culprit accident. Surprisingly, it turned out to be one of the passengers of the crashed car.
A Lukyanenko went in regular competitions to win prizes.
However, not for Ani.
"With the Olympics he came back a different person"
Anna Klimenko today is learning to walk again in a rehabilitation center in Ukraine. On that terrible night, she remembers reluctantly, but understand - you need to talk about this, otherwise leave the guilty from punishment.
Anna Klimenko at the grave of the deceased in an accident Irina Kovalchuk.
In front of me a pile of photographs from the past, where Anna and her fiance Yevgeny Lukyanenko carefree smile and make plans for the future together.
- Zhenya, we knew from school, but began dating later - I was finishing the 5th year of the institute, - Anna began. - Lukyanenko seemed decent, kind man. He was gallant - courting, gave flowers, spoke beautiful words. For a while, we even lived together. At that time, I had no doubt - we will get married. But then Jack was not a champion, did not earn crazy money. Tell the truth, love is blind - after all, I never thought that my choice is capable of terrible betrayal.
The year 2008 was a turning point in the life of Eugene and Anna. Then the young athlete went to the Olympics in Beijing.
- We have often called up, copied, - says the girl. - The day of the speech I held Jenny crossed for him and prayed for victory. When he went up on a pedestal, then beamed with joy, it was filled with emotion, and he could not restrain himself, shouted at the camera: "Annie, I love you." However, later I tried to find the story on the Internet. Did not find...
"Lukyanenko won a miracle" - evaluated later achievement athlete commentators. So what was it? Helped Anne prayer?
- Now I know - with their wishes have to be careful, they have an unpleasant feature - to come true - blames himself interlocutor. - From Beijing Eugene returned a changed man. Fame and money have spoiled it. No, nothing wrong with me, he did not do, but to communicate with them after the Olympics has become unbearable ... For a long time wrote about him all the local press, he could not bear to walk down the street of our city - were photographed with him, he took autographs, all Slavyansk-on-Kuban was hung giant banners and posters with his image. At one point he became the pride of the Krasnodar Territory. Children who are just beginning to take the first steps in athletics, dreamed to be like Lukyanenko. A school students wrote essays devoted to the winner.
"This is a victory for you!" - Whispered Yevgeniy Lukyanenko on his return from the Olympics and hung the medal around the neck of his girlfriend Anna.
Suddenly fame turned his head came down the champion. Crowds of fans are not allowed to pass Lukyanenko. And why he is now Anya? The girl from the past ... The young people leave. No scandals, tears and tantrums. Even without the trite promises to "be friends."
Ani ... Ways and Gene crossed again only a year later. They were at the wedding of mutual friends Sergei and Irina.
- We have decided to celebrate the wedding three days - says Anna. - The first two days Zhenya did not drink - like he could not. Shortly before the event, he underwent major surgery, the doctors strictly prohibited him from taking alcohol. On the third day broke Lukyanenko.
The final day of the wedding celebrated on the banks of the river. When it became dark, the guests began to go home. The champion did not hesitate to throw the young offered to the city.
- Get in the car with his wife piled five people - the bride and groom, another guy and me. The driver was Lukyanenko. I did not realize how drunk was our driver. Alarmingly it was after he abruptly pulled out, then squeezed the gas pedal to the floor and the car literally ripped off. What was it? To whom he chose to flaunt? On the track he raced so fast that I still wonder how we are not broken in the first few seconds. At one point I offered to trade places Lukyanenko - driver's license I had with him. He is not allowed. Only louder kerf music. And then Jack, not decelerating, and all turned to us and started saying something. The road he has not followed. I, in turn, did not take her eyes off the road as felt - trouble is inevitable. And on the first sharp turn the car led. I just had time to shout: "We're going to the tree." Jack tried to turn the wheel, but it was too late.
Subsequent events Anna vaguely remembers: "I then lost consciousness, then I regained consciousness, but most of the things my memory of that night is still recorded." Completely reconstruct the accident the girl helped the witnesses of the tragedy. However, it took two years.
"Please do not tell me what I was driving"
- The bride did not die immediately. Il seems to have time to drop off the hospital. But the doctors were powerless to help her. In the first seconds after the accident, I looked at her and was horrified - Irina was unconscious, her blond hair were covered with black blood, his face disfigured. And I remember well the first Jack jumped out and began to call his father. My parents, he is nothing, "fast" is not called. He was in a state of shock, ran across the field and was shouting into the phone.
"Soon" caused strangers - local residents, who had fled to the noise.
Of the five people who were in the car were not injured, only two - Yevgeniy Lukyanenko Sergei Kovalchuk and groom, who was sitting next to the driver's seat.
- I was dragged out of the car, put on earth - continues Anna. - I remember the infernal pain. And I shouted loudly, called Zhenya, only close friend of everyone who was there. He came to me literally 30 seconds. He took my hand and put some on the boy's knee, saying, "Let him think it was me." And left. With me were complete strangers boys from a neighboring village. I kept telling them: "I'll be sleeping." Apparently, I was going to die. They distracted me, talked to some extraneous threads and constantly repeated: "Do not you dare close your eyes, hold on."
After some time to the accident began to arrive in "ambulance cars". The first took the hardest-hit - bride Irina. Then the hospital sent one of the boys - Alexei Lyashenko, who all his might shouted: "I am dying." Anna drove away from the scene after more than two hours.
- I almost was not open fractures, I'm all broken inside. So apparently it looked normal. For me, the blood is not there. Perhaps that is why the doctors decided that I still hold out, and took me to the last. When I was loaded onto a stretcher, legs and hands, I no longer felt.
In rural hospital Anna kept per day. Apparently, the doctors did not doubt - the girl did not make it to the morning. Her parents made it clear: "Your daughter injuries incompatible with life." And the sense to a patient in the Krasnodar hospital tens of kilometers away? Only in vain gasoline spending ...
- But my body coped, I lasted a day. But Krasnodar doctor also not comforted his mother: "It is necessary to do emergency surgery. One percent of what your child will survive. Otherwise exactly die. " For three days I did not come out of the coma. The first operation lasted all night. Later I suffered eleven surgery. It was like hell. I just had time to move away from one anesthesia, I was immediately transported back to the operating room.
With Krasnodar forum: "When Anya was discharged from the hospital, patients were crying! Never forget us a picture of how the girl's mother slept under her bed in hospital - there was no more seats, and Annie choked with blood! The parents of the girl gave the last money in order to somehow help their child! Family Lukyanenko have any idea how much worth this treatment ?! Apparently not ... "
- When I woke up after the first operation, immediately called his wife. In spite of everything, I'm worried about him - continues interlocutor. - His voice was calm: "I'm all right." Later, he came to the hospital. Twice in total I came to see me. All these meetings were reduced to one, he literally begged me, "Please do not say that I was driving." He managed to lull my vigilance. I felt sorry for him, and I said: "Do not worry, I will say that I do not remember." I do not know why it came - probably wanted to help him. In turn, I have no doubt that he will help me with the treatment. For six months, his father pestered my house and talked to my parents, but the words of compassion my relatives have not heard from him once. He just had to otmazatsya son from prison.
On the treatment of the father of Anna Lukyanenko transferred 160 thousand rubles. Then I take a receipt from the parents of the victim. This amount is enough for a girl for a month. When Anna's parents turned again to Lukyanenko for financial assistance, the head of the family wrote to the prosecutor where the accused father Klimenko extortion.
Meanwhile, the girl has already given the first indications investigator. The question: "Who was driving?" - Anna replied: "I do not remember." That was enough to deflect suspicion from Lukyanenko.
And soon declared culprit. They became Alexei Lyashenko, the guy who was sitting in the back seat of the crashed car.
"Guys, come to your senses, you face 5 years in prison!"
Certainly the champion would come out unscathed, if Anna had not changed his testimony. On re-examination of the investigator if she saw the light: "At the wheel was Lukyanenko."
But to prove the truth of these words has now become much more difficult.
- First, we tried to find a lawyer to me, but it turned out to be a daunting task. While Zhenya protect three people, for we did not want to take anybody. Hearing the name Lukyanenko, lawyers waved: "We do not want to communicate with his father the champion." Only two years later we were able to hire a lawyer.
Father athlete really is not the last man in the Kuban, to say the least. Yuri Lukyanenko took the chair head of the inter-district criminal executive inspection № 9 Main Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service in Krasnodar Krai.
This significant fact explains a lot in the sensational case Lukyanenko.
- One day I was summoned to confront with Alexei Lyashenko - the guy who took the blame, - says Anna. - He looked me in the eyes, without a trace of embarrassment, said: "I was at the wheel." I could not believe my ears - because I saw it all! Then he took to the investigator: "Guys, come to your senses! You threatens to 5 years ... "On Lesha these threats have not worked, if it is programmed to one answer:" It's my fault. " I have no doubt that my father Lukyanenko Lyashenko had promised to provide favorable conditions for his detention in prison. Perhaps for false testimony Lesha good pay. Of course, the investigator understood immediately. Last year, he put an end to the investigation and referred the case to the court.
Yevgeniy Lukyanenko and Anna Klimenko
The matter came to the Slavic District Court in November last year. But essentially it is not yet considered: at the preliminary hearing, a federal judge ruled Alexander Spring return it to the prosecutor "to remove obstacles in the examination."
- High-profile case do not allow progress in court. Although this accident - an ordinary case, it would seem, everything is easy and simple. And most importantly - the judge, prosecutor, investigator clear who was responsible for the accident. But now it goes to the fact that the cause of the accident was a rough road - said Klimenko. - And on the website of the city prosecutor's office appeared the slogan: "Pride of Slavyansk-on-Kuban." Below is the name of Lukyanenko.
... Today, the once quiet and peaceful Slavyansk-on-Kuban was divided into two opposing camps. A clear advantage on the side of Anna.
- It is terrible that the groom dead Irina Kovalchuk, Sergei Lukyanenko took the side, moreover, they have maintained a strong friendship with the champion. Serge, of course, came to the funeral of his bride, and then chose to forget the tragedy. Over the years, he has never called his parents Irina had not come to her grave, but on the wedding donated money to buy a car. Soon after the accident began dating a girl. Life goes on...
Continuing life and Yevgeny Lukyanenko. His posters still hang in many cities in the Krasnodar Territory, he continues to exercise, she plans to go to the Olympics in London. A newly married champion. However, the lavish wedding to play did not - signed with the bride quietly, without noisy feasts.
Meanwhile, parents of the deceased Irene and could not come to terms with the death of his daughter and the fact that the perpetrator is still at large.
- Parents Lukyanenko had family financial assistance in the funeral of Irene - money, by the way, they are also given a receipt deceased father - adds Anna. - Strange turns out that if their son was in no way to blame for why they provide material assistance and the more demanding receipts? By the way, Jack did not bring him sympathy, did not apologize, did not attend the funeral, and to this day avoids communication with the family. I constantly called up to them, and, you know, they do not believe that time heals. And I try not to go out of the city, afraid to face Lukyanenko. During all this time, we only once crossed with Eugene when he passed away. When he saw me, he turned away, eyes hidden - looked straight at me and grinned. But the world is not without good people - the last time I have gained a lot of friends who pray for my health. Children in schools Kuban hold shares in my support - make crafts, and proceeds to list my account. And this faith in me helps. Just recently, I finally learned how to sit. Now try to take the first steps ... And I pretty well.
"My son mischief again!"
Perhaps Anna Klimenko version could be interpreted as a female revenge, resentment against the former fiance.
It could be ... if it did not confirm the version of dozens of people.
Julia Lebedeva - investigators who traveled on the scene immediately after the incident:
- I arrived at the scene a few hours after the accident. I had to take testimony from witnesses to the accident. At that time I was a young investigator, so at first I was none of those present did not notice. From talking to the crowd, I realized: behind the wheel sat Yevgeniy Lukyanenko. Himself Eugene looked terribly frightened, he fussed, running around the mangled car, visibly nervous. When I asked who was at the wheel, I did not give a clear answer. A little later I was approached by a boy: "I was driving." While we were talking to him, we received information from the hospital that one of the victims died, the other is in serious condition. Soon the father arrived Lukyanenko. He is always calling someone: "My son once had done things." And then Lukyanenko Sr. took me aside and asked, "How to behave in this situation?" I explained that the participants of the accident can take advantage of Article 51 and not to incriminate themselves and their loved ones. And then the father of the champion gave the mandate to all present - not to give any testimony, referring to this article. The same guy who initially took the blame on himself and did - he refused to talk to me. And later still he admitted that he lied at the first interrogation. Later, the case he did not pass, it never again questioned.
On the day of the tragedy I was able to talk a little with himself Eugene Lukyanenko. He did not deny that, too, I was in the car. But all my questions answered hesitantly, swam in the testimony. It constantly pulls father, they say, do not talk to me without a lawyer. After we went to the hospital to examine Zhenyu intoxicated. The champion found blood alcohol. Father Lukyanenko everywhere accompanied his son, did not leave him a single step. Eugene himself hardly spoke.
On the day of the tragedy - Irina with her husband Sergei and Alexei Lyashenko (left to right).
Who takes the blame Alexei Lyashenko. This guy - a close friend of the champion athlete, too, is engaged in the struggle. But personally, I have no doubt that the culprit was an accident Eugene. I saw Lukyanenko in the first hours after the tragedy, believe me, the innocent themselves do not lead. He was frightened, clutched his father. Innocent people will not think about how to do it better, it will tell you how it was.
I even had a chance to attend the confrontation Lukyanenko and Anna Klimenko. Do not put into words how Jack put down his ex-girlfriend, insulted, he shouted: "Shame on you! What you're lying, girl! You did not see anything and do not know anything! "
Anastasia Ogorodova, CCM Athletics, met with Yevgeny Lukyanenko after the fatal accident.
- Zhenya, we began to meet in 2 months after the accident. Of course, I heard about this tragedy, but all the details at the time of our acquaintance did not know. Jack himself is always cut short the conversation on this subject: "I do not want to talk about it." He pretended that nothing happened. Details of the accident, I learned from his friend Lesha Lyashenko, who took the blame. He told me in detail, who was sitting behind the wheel, and then come up with some tale to otmazatsya Zhenyu. After initially responsible for the accident would make the dead Irina. It did not happen only because the examination has shown that if the girl was sitting in the front seat, she would die - it would have slept airbags. In the end, I took the blame Alex. According to him, for the salvation of Eugene Lukyanenko father she gave him a car and promised to provide comfortable conditions of detention in prison. When I met with the ex-girlfriend Anya athlete and learn how behaved Eugene after the accident, I was in shock. We soon parted with Eugene.
Alex LYASHENKO - one Yevgeny Lukyanenko:
- Why did you take the blame?
- Because I was driving.
- But the whole city says the car drove drunk Lukyanenko.
- It only says Anna Klimenko. You know the details of the relationship and Ani Eugene? I advise you to learn. And you told the parents Klimenko blackmailed Lukyanenko, literally chased out of his money on the treatment of victims? And what tales composed family Klimenko, if Lukyanenko father paid someone money to otmazatsya son? All this is a lie invented by the offended girl! Let's finish the conversation. I drove the car. And the point.
- What are you doing now?
- At the moment I'm at a party at the party. You do distracting.
- C beside you is Lukyanenko. You could not give him the phone?
- You want me to give up the phone Wife? That's absurd! All the best...
Nikolai Kolonitskii - the investigator who conducted the case:
- When the investigation was completed and the case went to trial, lawyers Lukyanenko insisted that the case was returned for additional investigation. Who is considered a version that caused the accident served as a pit in the pavement. For me, in this case everything is clear, but if it were that simple ... You see, there is no direct evidence to the person who was at the wheel, and to blame the tragedy occurred. And this is the rub. Of course, we could send Lukyanenko on the lie detector, polygraph evidence but not proof in court. A person who wants to take the blame, faces up to 5 years imprisonment and not weak claims from victims. If convicted Lukyanenko - it shines up to 7 years in prison, because he was intoxicated.
Yevgeniy Lukyanenko declined to comment.
At the World Championships in Osaka Yevgeny Lukyanenko became the sixth, though, and showed a personal record - 5.81. Later, he won the world championship in the halls with a score of 5.90, and in a tournament in Poland became the sixteenth jumper in history to break the 6-meter line, soaring by 6.01. Then there was the Olympics in Beijing, where the Russian shestovikov won the silver medal, having won the bar at a height of 5.85 meters.
Today, all of these records Lukyanenko left far behind. After the tragedy of the athlete if jinxed. Over the last year he has never reached the level above 5.75. Eugene himself in numerous interviews sees the reason for the failure to injuries sustained after the accident. However, no doubt familiar Lukyanenko - is the wages of sin, which shouldered the champion.
