Officers of the Investigative Committee are conducting searches in the Moscow region’s Shchelkovo District Administration. This is reported by TASS referring to a source in law enforcement bodies. According to him, the investigators are seizing documents.
As reported by the district administration's press service, the investigative actions are conducted as part of the case against former Head of the municipality administration's Land Relations Department, Vitaly Andrusenko.

January 30, the administration of the Moscow region’s Balashikha was searched. An employee of the city’s Administration of Transport, Roads, and Communications is suspected of Bribe-Taking.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
