Murmansk region: Cabinet officer arrested on suspicion of embezzlement
In the Murmansk region, Deputy Head of the Office for the activities of the Murmansk Region Government State Educational Budgetary Institution Georgy Blagodelsky is accused of financial fraud.
According to the ICR in the Murmansk region, the official is charged with part 3 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code (Swindling committed by a person through his official position). The investigators found that in March this year, Blagodelsky embezzled the money allocated for ensuring the needs of the regional government through the use of his official position. At the same time, the ICR has not clarified the amount appropriated by the official.
It is known that law enforcers have conducted search in the government of the Murmansk region; Blagodelsky was detained as a result. The court has elected him a preventive measure in the form of detention.
The investigation into this criminal case continues. The law enforcers establish other facts of the official's criminal activity and work on revealing the circle of his accomplices.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
According to the head of the state-owned company, the Russian business “rebuilt the country,” “restored the collapsed Soviet enterprises,” “returned the salary to the people,” “filled the budget with money.”
