The Barnaul Court pronounced a sentence to the former Deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the Altai Region Aleksander Mastinin. In 2013 the runaway Deputy was put on the wanted list, and in 2015 he was detained at the Moscow airport with passport of other name.
As reported in the press service of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee in the Altai Region, the court found Mastinin guilty of partnership in embezzlement and waste of 12 million rubles and sentenced him to 6 years of imprisonment, a fine of 300 thousand rubles and compensation of damage caused to the resource supplying entities.
According to the ICR, the former Deputy and other defendants in the case should pay damage in the amount of 12 million rubles.
According to the investigation, from January to October, 2009, being the head of Rodnoy Barnaul company, which was receiving from citizens money for housing and communal services, Mastinin and other participants of an organized criminal grouping withdrew money through affiliated firms, thus having stolen the above-stated amount.

In June 2015 Mastinin was detained in Moscow with false documents on a surname Grach. At the same time the defendant denied that he was Mastinin up to the end, when his personality was identified during identification.
Earlier the sentence concerning other participants of criminal group - CEO of Rodnoy Barnaul Nikolay Ostretsov and chief accountant Anna Aubakirova was pronounced. They each received three years of imprisonment.

The high-profile shootout in Oko Tower in November 2017 – at least, 40 gunshots were fired there – has led to unexpected consequences a year later. Seven high-ranked investigators of the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) have submitted a collective resignation letter, and the inquest into the incident in Moscow City International Business Center was resumed. In fact, this chain of events resembles another firefight that had occurred in 2015 near Elements Restaurant on Rochdelskaya street, Moscow and also resulted in a number of high-profile criminal cases against senior ICR officials and incarceration of ‘thief № 1’ Shakro Molodoy.
