Former Chelyabinsk Governor caught on bribe-taking
Mikhail Yurevich became a person involved in criminal case. The Investigative Committee still does not reveal the amount of the bribe.
Former Head of the Chelyabinsk Region Mikhail Yurevich became a defendant in criminal case over bribe-taking, the press service of the ICR of Russia reported.
As the investigation assumes, Yurevich got a bribe from his subordinate - former Minister of Health of the region Vitaly Teslenko who was sentenced to seven years in 2014 under the case of the Chelyabinsk Ministry of Health.
“Complex of investigative actions and operational actions directed to establishment of all circumstances of a crime is being conducted currently”, noted the ICR without specifying amount of the bribe.
To recall, so-called ‘medical proceedings’ were initiated in December, 2012. Then the Chelyabinsk security officers detained the eminent high-ranking medics in the region. Among them there was also Minister of Health Vitaly Teslenko. According to the investigators, he together with his accomplices helped to control organizations to win tenders for delivery of X-ray diagnostic complexes of the French firm Stephanix, medical ventilators and incubators for newborns. Certainly, this expensive equipment provides growth of clients in medical institutions and lifts ratings therefore it is no wonder that there was a persistent fight in offices of the ministry for it. As often happens, officials decided to reach a victory by a corruption method.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
