Ex-Mayor of Sergiev Posad got real term instead of fine
The court toughened the punishment of former Mayor Viktor Bukin, convicted of extortion and receiving a large bribe.
The court changed the sentence of former Head of Sergiev Posad, the Moscow Region, Viktor Bukin from a fine on a real time - eight years in prison. The officer was found guilty of extortion and receiving bribes in the amount of 6 million rubles ($119.000).
According to RIA Novosti, the decision to revise the penalties was taken by the Criminal Division of the Kostroma Regional Court. Bukin will serve term in a strict regime penal colony.
According to the investigation, Viktor Bukin, being aware of the need to fulfill the court's decision to recover debt in the amount of more than 47.8 million rubles ($818.000) from the municipality, proposed the director of the commercial company to give him a bribe in the amount of 50% of the outstanding amount through an intermediary for the actual execution of the court's decision in May 2015. During the transfer of the amount, 6 million rubles ($119.000), the mediator, Chief of the Administration Legal Department Sergey Klimov, was detained. After that, the staff of the regional FSB came to Bukin.
The Mayor tried to escape from the investigation, but at the beginning of 2016 he was detained in Serbia and then extradited to Russia, where he was fined two million rubles.
