An official accused of taking bribes on an especially large scale is placed into custody for two months.
Former Head of Udmurtia Alexander Soloviev was arrested by a court decision for two months on charges of taking bribes on an especially large scale from contractors building bridges in the region.
It is noted that during the hearing the former Head of Udmurtia did not admit his guilt.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, a criminal case against the Head of Udmurtia Alexander Soloviev was initiated under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Bribe-Taking by an official holding a public office of the Russian Federation on an especially large scale).
The complainant stated that by blocking the messenger, Russian authorities make it impossible for people to read Telegram channels that, "under the strict state censorship," have become a source of information and exchange of socio-political views, “one of the few independent and free ones. "
Spanish prosecutor is widely known as the man who "brought down the Russian mafia in Spain," as he has been fighting Tambovskyaya, Solntsevskaya, Malyshevskaya, and Izmaylovskaya organized crime groups of Russia. Jose Grinda condemned the UK’s lack of cooperation in a fight with the organized crime which has gone increasingly global.
