Results of Mayor of Nizhny Novgorod Ivan Karnilin’s polygraph test are disclosed.
A senior official passed lie-detector test on the Miami real estate issue within the television program Tsentralnoe Televidenie (Central Television) on NTV. Journalists take interest in Mayor of Nizhny Novgorod when the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) found out two undeclared apartments in Miami registered on his ex-wife.

The Head of Nizhny Novgorod was also asked whether the purpose of the divorce was the possibility not to declare the property and hide the real estate in Miami; Karnilin replied in the negative and the polygraph was considered it true.
