The investigators opened a case on the abuse of authority in relation to Stanislav Grebenshchikov, the Vice-Chairman of the Omsk region Government.
According to the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, Grebenshchikov, using his official powers, paid more than 14 million rubles ($249.000) from the federal budget to the contractor StroyInvestKomplekt LLC for the reconstruction of the cultural object.

During the investigation of the case, law enforcement officers also revealed that the interests of the credit organization that issued a bank guarantee to ensure the execution of the state contract were violated.
