Executive Secretary of Altai Governor suspected of office abuse
According to the investigation, the official spent the funds of the regional budget on three cars worth 18 million rubles ($310.300).
Investigative bodies of the Altai Region have opened a criminal case under part 1 of Art. 286 of the Russian Criminal Code (Exceeding Official Powers) against Alexey Beloborodov, the Governor’s Executive Secretary, TASS reported. Beloborodov is suspected of purchasing three cars worth 18 million rubles ($310.300) with no competitive procedures at the expense of the regional budget allocated for the improvement of state and municipal management in 2016. The cars were purchased from a single supplier for a subordinate car park.
The Investigative Committee stated that the actions of the official significantly violated the legitimate interests of society and state. Investigators are conducting an inspection of what happened.
Beloborodov has been working in the Altai administration since 2013. Prior to that, he had served in the local MIA and traffic police, where he rose from being a road inspector to the department head.
Last week local media reported that masked law enforcers had entered the government building and proceeded to Beloborodov's office. However, the authorities denied the reports.

The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
