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).
Early in 2017, “My Lobby” Program – a personal initiative of Andrei Vorobiev, Governor of the Moscow region – has been launched in the metropolitan area. In the framework of this program, lobbies of residential buildings must be brought to statutory condition as soon as possible. The goals have been set, objectives identified, and funds allocated. The CrimeRussia has reviewed the program implementation in Khimki Urban District and calculated the budget funds flowing away in an unknown direction thanks to actions of the Khimki officials and personally Dmitry Voloshin, Head of the Urban District.
