Sakhalin invites tourists to relax in Khoroshavin’s residence
Not everybody can afford to spend time “like a governor.” Daily cost of house rent in Uyun is from 30 to 48 thousand rubles.
The former residence of ex-Governor of Sakhalin Aleksandr Khoroshavin, who is currently in custody on corruption charges, has been reconstructed into a recreation center. There are comfortable houses, sauna, and gym on the territory of the tourist complex.
Sakhalin government’s recreational center Uyun is located in an ecologically clean area near Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. As it is said on the recently opened tourist center’s website, where you can view the accommodation prices and book a room, “all buildings fit perfectly into the surrounding landscape, and the organic combination of comfort and the pristine beauty of the surrounding nature create ideal conditions for recreation.”
It should be noted that prices for accommodation are consistent with “the governor’s" status of the tourist center. One night in a standard room in a guest house costs 9,564 rubles, de luxe suite — 20,287 rubles. Per day rent of an average house is 47,675 rubles, that of a small house – 29,761 thousand.
According to SakhalinMediа, this tourist destination is supervised by Sakhalin Tourist Information Center.
The former Sakhalin Governor was arrested on suspicion of bribe-taking and OCG creation in March 2015. According to investigation bodies, the total amount received from Sakhalin businessmen bribe by the organized crime group members reached 522 million rubles.
As previously reported by the Crime Russia, on the eve of his detention, Khoroshavin resided continuously in the Uyun Recreational Center. It was in this place that law enforcers found and confiscated large sums of money.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
