The investigation of a criminal case against 64-year-old former Head of Sredneuralsk Administration Boris Tarasov is completed in Ural. The official is accused of abuse of power and attempted bribery.

As a result the city budget was damaged in the amount of 49.3 million rubles, regional – 12.3 million rubles.
Later, after learning about the investigation upon a crime in February, 2016, the Head of the Sredneuralsk city district transferred 1 million rubles as a bribe for issue of the case papers allegedly to an "employee of the Investigative Committee", who appeared to be a telephone swindler – the prisoner of one of colonies of the Rostov region. After that Tarasov was detained by the field investigators of criminal investigation department of the Rostov region who were engaged in case of a telephone fraud.
Some progress is expected with the completion of a never-ending deluxe construction project – Golden Mile residential complex. Little-known businessman Sergei Popov is about to take charge of it. Former elite co-investors rejoice – their dream to live on Ostozhenka street may finally come true. Only Oleg Deripaska is not happy with the news – Sergei Popov may attract public attention to some dark episodes in the billionaire’s biography that he would like to forget for good.
