According to the investigation, April 15, 2016, the suspect received a bribe in the amount of 3,500 dollars (200 thousand rubles) from a director general of two commercial structures while in the workplace.
The publication notes that in exchange for this amount, Strelets had to make a decision on the payment of upcoming and completed work under municipal contracts for road works.
