Ex-head of Samara Russian Post tried for selling service car to his wife
Former Head of Russian Post Samara office Artur Igrushkin, who had forced his employees to build a country house for him and who was dismissed due to loss of trust, is now a defendant in another criminal case.
According to the press service of the Samara Regional Prosecutor’s Office, a second criminal case has been initiated against former Head of Russian Post Samara office Artur Igrushkin. The proceedings under part 1 of Art. 285 of the Russian Criminal Code (Abuse of Official Powers) have been instituted by the Interdistrict Investigative Department of the ICR Investigations in the Samara region.
According to the criminal case, in February 2017, Igrushkin sold his service car – 2009’s Toyota Camry – to his wife at a low price of 180 thousand rubles ($3,196). The investigation estimated the damage caused to the organization at 400 thousand rubles ($7,104).
Previously, the CrimeRussia reported on the initiation of a criminal case against Igrushkin under the same article of the Criminal Code. Employees of the Samara Region Russian Post’s office headed by Artur Igrushkin complained to the law enforcement agencies about their boss forcing his subordinates to build a country cottage in the village of Malaya Tsarevschina under the threat of dismissal.
Igrushkin used the free labor of his subordinates for a year. During this time, the staff managed to build a fence, supply electricity, and connect the building to the heating system.
The air squadron number one in Russia ended up in the center of yet another scandal. It turned out that its special purpose aircraft are used, in addition to the national leaders, by outsiders. Uninvited passengers travel, stay in best hotels, and dine in deluxe restaurants at the budget expense. In fact, the discovery of stowaways on board is not the first scandal involving Russia Special Air Group that has been in distress for almost three years already. Why cannot the supreme FSB commanders using the official airplanes along with the Russian President sort out this mess?
Earlier, the management of the railway and the place of residence of its high-ranking employees were searched within the bribe case. Investigative actions against head of the railway Alexey Mironov were held in Moscow, where he was on a business trip.
