Deputy Minister of Khabarovsk is detained for a bribe of 2 million rubles
Denis Kireyev is suspected of taking a bribe in amount of 2 million rubles, which he received from the construction company for the concealment of 20 million rubles in the government contract accounting.
The searches and seizure of documents were held in the Ministry of Construction of Khabarovsk Territory the previous night. The Deputy Minister Denis Kireyev was arrested and taken to the predetention center, as IA AmurMedia reported.
Denis Kireev, who is 39 years old, was detained in connection with the investigation of cases of swindling in the seismic retrofit of buildings in the city of Sovetskaya Gavan.
The Territorial Ministry of Construction flatly refused to comment on what happened. The crime was committed by Kireyev in 2013-2015 when he served as the Deputy Mayor of Sovetskaya Gavan and had "nothing to do with the Territorial Ministry of Construction," said a source of Interfax in law enforcement.
According to the investigators, in 2013-2015, the construction company received 38 million rubles under the state contract for the work on the federal program on "Improving the Stability of Residential Buildings, Main Facilities, and Life Support Systems in Seismic Regions of the Russian Federation for 2009-2018". In total, the Sovetskaya Gavan Administration has concluded with the construction company three municipal contracts on seismic retrofit of nine buildings. Of the allocated 38 million rubles, 20 million rubles were not spent because exterior finishing of the buildings was carried out for 18 million rubles due to cheap materials purchased. Kireyev for concealing the false accounting statements received 1.9 million rubles from the head of the company. Against the official, a criminal case under the Art. Bribe in an especially large scale (p. 6, Art. 290 of the Criminal Code) was initiated.
In relation to 49-year-old businessman also prosecuted for Bribe-Taking in an especially large scale (part 5, Art. 291 of the Criminal Code), and Swindling (part 4, Art. 159 of the Criminal Code). At the moment, addressed the issue of the measure of restraint official and businessman.
As the regional media in the implementation of seismic stability of the program more than once there were problems. In 2015, it became clear that the two apartment houses, which were home to 180 families, for 7 months were left without gas through the fault of the builders, who were to perform the work on seismic.
During the arrest of businessman Valery Pshenichny, the operatives have made it clear that he won’t return home. An economic criminal case reported to the authorities by the businessman has led to his terrible death in the pretrial detention facility under circumstances raising numerous questions. Was he really electrocuted, cut with a knife, raped, his spine fractured, strangled, and killed? The Federal Penitentiary Service denies such allegations and claims that “He has done everything himself”. The CrimeRussia has performed its own inquest into the death of Valery Pshenichny.
Alexey Kudrin, the head of the Center for Strategic Research, said the ban on Telegram messenger jeopardizes the country’s transition to digital economy. The decision was ill-conceived, he said, and those who made it did not think it through.
