Official from Southern Urals suspected of housing fraud
In the Chelyabinsk region, head of the Kropachevsky urban settlement passed his relative as poor to help solve his housing problem.
The official is charged with abuse of official powers.
As reported by the regional ICR, a criminal case under Art. 285 of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against Galimyan Gaynetdinov.
According to the investigative bodies, in 2014, acting on behalf of the municipality, the official signed a contract for the provision of an apartment under social renting in the Kropachevo village to his relative. The cost of this housing was about 700 thousand rubles. At the same time, the official’s relative was not entitled to this benefit, since he was not poor.
The law enforcers are currently electing a measure of restraint for the official and preparing the prosecution materials.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
