Nikita Belykh denies his guilt
The governor of the Kirov region that was arrested in a Moscow restaurant for receiving a bribe yesterday evening refused to admit his guilt.
Nikita Belykh announced that yesterday to journalists in the Basmanny Court, where he was taken from the Investigative Committee for the trial.
However, due to the facts that after 10 pm hearings are not held and the case files were not yet transferred to the court, the question on election of a preventive measure for the governor will be decided today, June 25th.
It is worth noting that the statement of Belykh regarding his innocence wasn’t official. It was a short "No" to the question of the press about whether he acknowledges his guilt or not.
The representative of the Investigative Committee, Vladimir Markin, informed media yesterday at 6.30 pm that against the Kirov’s governor proceedings were instituted under Part 6 of Article 290 of the Russian Criminal Code.
According to the investigation, Belykh personally and earlier through his accomplices in two tranсhes received a total of 400 thousand euros for connivance in the implementation of government control over two investment projects: JSC "Novovyatskiy ski plant" and LLC "Forestry management company."
The arrest was done at the moment of transfer of the second part of the amount.

The case was initiated in September 2017 in connection with the failure to perform 4-million-ruble ($70 thousand) works to restore a XVI-century fortress in the Leningrad region.
