Head of Krasnoperekopsk City Administration Igor Yatsishin has been arrested for two months for bribe-taking.
This preventive measure has been elected by the Kievsky District Court of Simferopol.

A criminal case under part 5 of Art. 290 (Bribe-Taking) of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against Yatsishin. The investigation continues.
