Man from corruption schemes video committed suicide?
According to the official version, businessman and deputy Alexander Ivanov shot himself. Another, alternative version, provides a completely different overtones of what happened.
One of the heroes of the scandalous video, on which corruption schemes of the Balashikha Mayor were discussed, businessman and deputy Alexander Ivanov was found shot in his office. The tragedy occurred at the end of last year - December 29, but the media ignored this event. Perhaps, the reason for such indifference of journalists was the official version of law enforcement agencies, according to which Ivanov committed suicide.
It is noteworthy that the entrepreneur died literally a few days after the video with negotiations between the Mayor of Balashikha and authoritative businessman Anatoly Petrov, nicknamed Petrukha, had been published. According to the source of the Crime Russia, the recording was made in the office of the Union trading and entertainment complex, co-owned by Ivanov. In connection with the video leak Zhirkov and Petrov came to the entrepreneur and demanded to give up his share of the Union as a reckoning for the error. It is unknown whether the interlocutors came to consensus, but a few days later Ivanov was found dead. Also, the source said that Ivanov was a native uncle of Petrukha.
Recall, in December 2016, there were published several records of the conversation between Balashikha Mayor Yevgeny Zhirkov and local criminal authority Petrukha. On the video the interlocutors discussed the financial schemes and kickbacks, which should be transferred to the Government of the Moscow region to ensure the victory of the companies controlled by the Mayor at the auctions for provision of urban amenities. Later, the authenticity of videotapes was confirmed by experts from the Russian Federal Center for Forensic Expertise under the Ministry of Justice. Despite this, no criminal cases were instituted against Zhirkov.
