Acquitted under case over bribe ex-Deputy Head of Yaroslavl to fight for Mayor’s post
Dmitry Donskov declared that he submitted documents for participation in tender on a post of the city's Mayor.
Former Deputy Head of Yaroslavl Dmitry Donskov, who until recently was a defendant in criminal case over taking of a bribe, declared that he will participate in tender on the mayor's post. Candidate screen will take place on February 27.
“In general everything went without complaints, efficiently, quickly. I have positive feelings … I have no certificate of lack of a criminal record yet, but they said that they will check everything by themselves, that is why they do not really need it”, RIA Novosti quotes Donskov.
According to the politician, he wants to become the city's mayor as he knows about all problems of the city and is ready to solve them.
Criminal case concerning former Mayor of Yaroslavl Yevgeny Urlashov and his subordinates, including Dmitry Donskov, was initiated on July 3, 2013. The defendants of the case were accused of bribe racketing on especially large scale from director of Radostroy Sergey Shmelev. On August 3, 2016, the Kirov District Court of Yaroslavl sentenced Yevgeny Urlashov to 12 years and 6 months in maximum security penal colony and to a fine of 60 million rubles. Dmitry Donskov was acquitted. On January 20, 2017 the court left a sentence to Yevgeny Urlashov without changes.
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
