Governor Khoroshavin’s team member declared wanted
Anatoly Makarov was under recognizance not to leave.
Anatoly Makarov, the official from former Governor of the Sakhalin region Alexander Khoroshavin’s team, suspected of corruption, is wanted. The ICR for the region reports this in an interview with TASS.
Makarov worked in the government of the Sakhalin region as the Deputy Head of the Governor's office. He is the suspect in the case over bribery in the election and was under recognizance not to leave.
According to the investigation, in 2014, before the elections in the Duma of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Mayor of the city Andrey Lobkin, his deputy Alexey Leskin and Deputy Head of the Governor's office Anatoly Makarov collected money from candidates for deputies. In return, Khoroshavin patronized the candidates and promised places in the City Duma.
Recall that Khoroshavin was detained on March 3, 2015; on March 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed him in connection with the loss of confidence. According to the investigation, in 2009, Khoroshavin created an organized criminal group, whose members received bribes amounting to more than 522 million rubles ($8.1m) from eight entrepreneurs.
On February 9, 2018, the court sentenced the former official to 13 years in prison and a fine of 500 million rubles ($7.8m).
The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
