Ex-head of Kazan Railway Station jailed for two years over bribe-taking
Besides, the former official will pay a penalty of 2.5 million rubles ($43.800).
The Meshchansky Court of Moscow pronounced a sentence to ex-head of the Kazan Railway Station Sergey Donetsky who is incriminated taking bribes and commercial bribery. The former head is sentenced to two years of maximum-security penal colony and a penalty in a size of 2.5 million rubles, as told in the judgment.
As the investigation established, Donetsky, being the head of the station, received money from four tenants of floor spaces monthly, in exchange allowing them to use additional meters. In total from August, 2013 to February, 2016 he earned 3 million 150 thousand rubles ($55.300).
Donetsky was accused under part 3 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Bribe-Taking for illegal actions). Later, investigating authorities initiated one more proceeding over Commercial Bribery (item (c), part 4 of Art. 204 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
