“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
