As the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, transaction on detention of the former head of the Ministry of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev took place on the night of November 15, 2016. Feoktistov held a post of the vice-president of Rosneft two months before - in September.
To recall, Ulyukaev is accused of taking of a bribe in $2 million (more than 130 million rubles), and also racketing of money at the company for the positive conclusion of the Ministry of Economic Development concerning purchase by Rosneft of a share of the Bashneft company belonging to the state (50,8%).
According to interlocutors of RBC, Feoktistov lost his position, because with the minister ‘everything went too far’.
Nonexistent road. Driveway to school belonging to Sberbank CEO’s wife concealed from Moscow residents
A driveway to a private school has been laid through the yards of Wellton Park residential complex despite protests of its residents. However, officials in the Construction Department somehow believe that there is no road there yet. They claim that the ‘future’ road would provide access to the new perinatal center, school, and homes – while at this point, a contractor has been just selected and permission documentation is in preparation. The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
The presidential election scheduled for March 18 should be held as a holiday - the Kremlin gave such order to the regions. The Presidential Administration expects that the festive atmosphere at polling stations will increase the turnout, sources told RBC.
