Lieutenant Colonel from Volgograd issues his subordinates bonuses for kickbacks
The officer received prison time and has to pay a $ 22,000.
Volgograd’s Garrison Court sentenced Lieutenant Colonel Yury Shushkov to four years in a strict regime penal colony and a fine of 1.44 million rubles ($ 22,000) for taking a bribe on a large scale, exceeding official powers and forgery. He issued bonuses to subordinates from which he later received a certain amount, V1.ru reports.
According to the investigation, in total Shushkov received 360,000 rubles ($ 5,600). In the course of the investigation, the law enforcement bodies initiated 15 more criminal cases, including the one against Shushkov’s subordinate named Nestroyevy. However, later the criminal case was terminated, as Nestroyevy helped the investigation.
The court imposed a security arrest on Shushkov’s Mercedes-Benz E200, and also prohibited the defendant from taking posts related to the implementation of administrative functions for three years. The defense team intends to appeal the verdict.
The house that Trump built. Russian billionaire nearly lost millions in a deal with future US President
Billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev managed to get back the money paid to Donald Trump. In 2008, the oligarch purchased an estate from the future US President for $95 million and recouped the invested funds only ten years later. To do so, he had to demolish the most expensive private mansion in the USA and sell the land in pieces. The successful sale of Maison de L'Amitie is currently presented as a proof that there was no ‘Russian trace' in the American presidential elections, and the deal with Rybolovlev was not a disguised bribe to the presidential candidate. However, new owners of the three parcels of the Trump's former estate remain unknown.
