Leningrad Region: police major detained on suspicion of major bribery
The head of the anti-corruption department demanded money from an entrepreneur for non-initiation of a criminal case.
In Lodeynoye Pole, officers of the Internal Security Department detained a police major, Maxim Loyev, 35, on suspicion of receiving a large bribe from a businessman for not initiating a criminal case. The head of the department for combating economic crimes and fighting corruption of the MIA Department for the Lodeynopolsky District was detained red-handed, the publication 47news writes.
Loyev received a bribe of 300,000 rubles ($ 4,600) on June 10 in an office on Svirskaya Street in Podporozhye. Operatives immediately detained him along with the intermediary, who was the policeman’s friend. A bribery case was initiated against Loyev (section “c” of part 5 of Article 290 CCRF), against a friend of a police officer a case on mediation was opened (section “b” of part 3 of Article 291.1 CCRF), the ICR’s press service reports.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
