Head of Kurgan department of Federal Tax Service detained for bribing and wasteful spending of gasoline
Vladimir Ryzhuk was detained red-handed while receiving 500 thousand rubles (~9.000 USD).
The police, with the assistance of the security service of the Federal Tax Service (FTS), carried out an operation to detain the head of the Federal Tax Service for the Kurgan Region, Vladimir Ryzhuk. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian MIA, Irina Volk.
She noted that the official was detained red-handed while receiving 500 thousand rubles (~9.000 USD) from a local businessman, whom he promised to get rid of claims from the tax authority for 3 million rubles. The official managed to get only the first part of the bribe. Now he is charged under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
In addition, according to the police, for three years, Ryzhuk used his staff car Toyota Highlander to drive from Kurgan to Tyumen, spending state funds. According to the investigators, the official made about 300 trips, which cost the treasury 320 thousand rubles (~6.000 USD). Thus, the case also includes a charge of embezzlement (part 3 of Art. 160 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
“In the near future, the investigation intends to petition the court to rule on taking the accused into custody,” the report said.
The agency added that they would also check Ryzhuk for involvement in committing other similar crimes.
