Evgeny Urlashov

Ex-Mayor of Yaroslavl Evgeny Urlashov, sentenced to 12 years and 6 months of high security colony, has been convoyed from SIZO (pre-trial detention center) No. 2 in Rybinsk to the place of serving the sentence.

As reported by RIA Novosti citing Urlashov's lawyer Sergey Golubenkov, the pre-trial detention center representatives have confirmed the fact that the convict had been escorted to a correctional institution. Supposedly, it is the correctional colony No. 2 in the Yaroslavl region, but there is no official confirmation of this information.

Let us recall that Evgeny Urlashov was detained in July 2013 by GUEBiPK officers. In August 2016, the former head of the Yaroslavl administration was found guilty of receiving bribes from businessmen in the amount of 14 and 30 million rubles (248 and 532 thousand dollars, respectively). Evgeny Urlashov himself categorically refuses to admit his guilt and claims that he has been framed up.⁠
