Ex-Minister of Agriculture placed in detention in Perm
Ivan Ogorodov is a defendant in the case of embezzlement.
As TASS reports, former Minister of Agriculture for the Perm region Ivan Ogorodov has been placed in a temporary detention facility as a defendant in the case of embezzlement under Misappropriation, which had been initiated by the regional FSB administration.
The FSB administration had previously initiated a criminal case under part 4 of Art. 160 of the Russian Criminal Code (Misappropriation committed by an organized group or on an especially large scale) against the former minister. Manager of Ptitsefabrika Mendeleevskaya LLC Andrey Belkin has been charged with the same article.
Vladimir Vladimirovich Vladimirov became the Governor of the Stavropol Krai after staging the flight of his namesake – President Vladimir Putin – at the head of a flock of white cranes on the Yamal Peninsula. For almost five years since then, the Stavropol krai has been trying to get rid of such a ‘gift’. The region is plunging into crisis, corruption is flourishing, while officials from Governor’s close circle are prosecuted one by one. Local residents believe that law enforcement structures have declared a war on Vladimirov. Why can’t the FSB do anything with the Governor? And why is Moscow ignoring numerous requests to terminate Vladimirov?
