Irkutsk: Taishet Mayor’s accomplice under house arrest
The businessman is accused of a large-scale swindling.
Aleksandr Krasilnikov, VAV CEO and accessory in fraudulent crime with Irkutsk artesian wells, has been put under house arrest. Just as Taishet Mayor Aleksandr Velichko, he is charged under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling committed on an especially large scale).
Meanwhile, the senior official was put in a detention center for two months by the court order. According to investigation, Velichko illegally gave VAV CEO Krasilnikov four Taishet’s artesian wells in 2013 to be fully owned. Whereas the said wells had been made by local authorities for the budget money.
It should be noted that Aleksandr Velichko became mayor in September 2016 having won the election with 42.93% of votes. Before Velichko was elected mayor he had been Teplosnabzheniye (Heating) CEO in Taishet.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
