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.
In less than three years, Vadim Potomsky, Governor of the Orel Region, became involved into so many scandals that rumors about his upcoming dismissal circulate persistently. Furthermore, the region under his rule has made a mark during the live teleconference with the President: a complaint made by Orel resident Klavdia Stavtseva became one of the most high-profile episodes of the broadcast. What could be the next twist in the career of Potomsky?
