Karelian Road Board chairman and his deputy detained for $53.000 worth of bribes
The officials helped businessmen to get government contracts in exchange for bribes.
Aleksey Nikitin, the chairman of the Karelian Road Board, and one of his deputies have been detained on suspicion of Bribe-Taking (parts 5 and 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
According to the local department of the Investigative Committee, Nikitin and his deputy helped certain commercial organizations to obtain state contracts with Upravavtodor (Road Board) between 2015 and 2017. The suspects also gave the entrepreneurs an overall patronage. The businessmen gave bribes in the form of money and property to pay for the protection racket. As the investigators found, Nikitin and his deputy got more than 900 thousand rubles ($16.000) from one commercial organization and 1.8 million rubles ($31.800) from another one.
Investigators are now establishing all the circumstances of the crime. It is being considered whether the accused should be imprisoned.

Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
