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.
According to the Russian MIA’s spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, the detention of Russian woman Maria Butina in the US was specifically timed to coincide with the summit of Putin and Trump in order to minimize the effect of the presidents’ meeting.
