As it turned out, over the past four years in the family life of Serdyukov (now vice-president of the Union of Mechanical Engineers of Russia, full state adviser of the Russian Federation of the 1st class, chairman of the Board of Directors of PJSC United Aircraft Corporation) and Vasilyeva, there was a replenishment. The couple had three children. Evgeny Vasilyeva adopted two children: three-year-old Nikolai and two-year-old Tatiana. And another child, born this year, was given to a 40-year-old woman by a surrogate mother. According to the law, the mother of all children is Vasilyeva, the children's surname is Vasiliev, but the patronymic is Anatolyevich, named after 57-year-old Serdyukov. This was reported by the telegram channel Mash.
The novel by Anatoly Serdyukov, who was at that time the Minister of Defense of Russia, and Evgenia Vasilyeva, who served as head of the Department of Property Relations of the Ministry of Defense under him, was followed in 2012 by the whole of Russia: after all, the couple's love relationship was closely associated with a corruption scandal in the Ministry. On charges of fraud in the Oboronservis case, the minister's beloved was even sentenced in May 2015 to 5 years in prison. True, in August of the same year, the court granted Vasilyeva's request for parole. By that time, Serdyukov had already been divorced for three years, and Vasilyeva became his third wife.
This year, Vasilyeva again had to appear in court. The fact is that at first the Khamovnichesky registry office refused to register her as the mother of a surrogate newborn child. Vasilyeva filed an application with the Meshchansky Court of Moscow. The defendants, represented by the Civil Registry Office and the Sweetchild company (this company found the baby's physiological mother), predictably lost the trial, and now Vasilyeva is the official mother of all three children.
