Former vice-governor of Vologda Region arrested for bribery
For the patronage provided, the official got financing for construction of a house for a total of 3.75 million rubles ($64.363).
The Vologda City Court arrested the former Deputy Governor Nikolay Guslinsky, who is accused of bribery.
At the request of the investigator, the Court arrested the ex-official for two months. In addition, today, Gusinsky was officially charged with taking a bribe on an especially large amount (part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, the former Deputy Governor of the Vologda Region Nikolay Guslinsky was detained in Moscow on March 3, after which he was convoyed to Vologda. According to the investigation, Guslinsky, holding a high position in the Region Administration, provided protection to the agro-industrial complex called Vologodskaya Yagoda LLC (Vologda Berry). The Vice-Governor provided his overwhelming assistance in business development from 2013 to 2015. It is noted that the official, in particular, helped to provide companies with loans from credit institutions. For such support, CEO of Vologodskaya Yagoda Andrey Petukhov, as a bribe, financed the construction of a dwelling house and outbuildings actually owned by the former Deputy Governor. The investigators evaluated the businessman’s 'gratitude' for a total amount not less than 3.75 million rubles.
It should be noted that Guslinsky held the post of the Deputy Governor of the Vologda Region from February 2012. The official voluntarily resigned in March 2016 on the eve of his arrest.
Earlier, the regional Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee reported on the initiation of a criminal case against the acting Head of the Regional Department of Agriculture and Food Resources Anna Belyaevskaya. She was detained by the FSB officers when she received a part of the bribe in amount of 4.7 million rubles from the CEO of Vologodskaya Yagoda. Against Belyaevskaya, the CEO of the Vologodskaya Yagoda, and the Chairman of the Board of the NGO KreditAlliance a criminal case was initiated under the article ‘fraud’. The investigation believes that the persons of interest illegally received more than 96 million rubles of subsidies from the regional budget using forged documents.
