Edinaya Rossiya gives away state contracts on billions dollars for donations
The report of the movement Golos (Voice) claimed that of 241 companies donated to the party in power in 2015 80 companies received large state contracts in the amount of not less than 1 million rubles.
According to the document, the Edinaya Rossiya (United Russia) received 5.18 billion rubles in 2015. At the same time, the amount of money of state contracts, given to donating companies, are often ten times higher than the amount of their donations. For example, the Concern Monarch company allocated to party of power 20 million rubles, and in 2015-2016 it won contracts worth more than 5 billion rubles from the Department of Construction of Moscow.
These companies mainly received state contracts from the Defense Ministry and its affiliated companies. In particular, the Volgostalkonstruktsiya company donated the Edinaya Rossiya half a million rubles in 2015 and soon it entered into several state contracts worth over 1.7 billion rubles. Almost all of them have been associated with the company General Directorate of troops arrangement.
The report also claimed that there were cases when persons, related to donating companies, received contracts. Thus, the Transportno-ekspedizionnoe company of Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Combine allocated Edinaya Rossiya 500 thousand rubles in 2015. After that, the owner of the company since the end of 2015 received 91 state contracts in the amount of 5.16 billion rubles, while the company directly did not participate.
In addition, the Golos told about the funding, which received some of the parliamentary parties - Edinaya Rossiya, Spravedlivaya Rossiya and Rodina – were received from abroad.
The Head of the Executive Committee of the Edinaya Rossiya Maxim Rudnev rejected the link between obtaining state contracts and financial support for the party in the comment to RBK.
"It was a targeted killing": ICR checks powerlifter Drachev's murderer for involvement in other crimes
The investigation into the high-profile murder of the world champion is ongoing. Given the reputation and family ties of Anar Allakhveranov, whose elder brother is serving a sentence for a similar crime on the grounds of extortion, new episodes may emerge in the case. The family of Andrey Drachev and his lawyers are positive – the killing was no accident.
Lawyer of former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh, Andrey Grokhotov reported that his client needs to be transferred from the pre-trial detention center to the Matrosskaya Tishina hospital due to poor health.
The video shows the second episode of the fight between the powerlifter and Anar Allakhveranov, during which the murderer dealt a series of crushing blows, deliberately bludgeoning the world champion without letting him recover. According to the regional leadership of the National Guard of Russia, that same video denies the inaction allegations filed against soldiers of the National Guard.
Earlier, Deputy Head of the State Duma Rules Committee Mikhail Romanov noted that to avoid a conflict of interest when considering Poklonskaya's declaration, the committee would be headed by its first deputy, but the situation came to an easier resolution.
