The Head of the Verh-Isetsky district is suspected of receiving 150 thousand rubles ($2 600), the press service of the regional ICR reported.
According to law enforcement officers, the official received the money from a local businessman in exchange for protection in the performance of a municipal contract for sanitation services in the district.
The Head was detained immediately after the transfer of the bribe in the workplace, the ICR reported. It is noted that the criminal case was initiated. In the near future the measure of restraint will be chosen.
Clouds are gathering over the ICR general. His former subordinate Aleksey Kramarenko, arrested in late 2017 in the case of a bribe to high-ranking ICR officers from thief in law Zakhary Kalashov, has revealed the involvement of his former immediate superior in the corruption episode.
