Sergey Polonsky called Colonel Zakharchenko holder of common fund
The businessman Sergey Polonsky, accused of swindling, has complained of extortion on the part of police officers.
The businessman Sergey Polonsky, accused of swindling in the amount of 2.6 million rubles in the construction of two apartment complexes, has complained of extortion on the part of the former MIA Colonel Zakharchenko’s colleagues. He also said that Zakharchenko, the search of whom had revealed billions of rubles, “held a common fund.”
“Zakharchenko was the one working on economic issues and holding the common fund, one of the common funds. Other people would come and say "Give us 10 million and we won't bother you anymore,” Polonsky said before the court hearing, which considered extending the term of his arrest.
Dmitry Zakharchenko was arrested in September 2016. During search, 8.5 billion rubles in foreign currency were found at his relatives’ apartment. Zakharchenko claimed he had nothing to do with this money and knew nothing about its origin.
Zakharchenko held the post of Deputy Head of the Department T of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption at the MIA of Russia. The Colonel was dismissed from the law enforcement agencies following the institution of criminal proceedings.
Sergey Polonsky is a defendant in the case of swindling on an especially large scale in the construction of Kutuzovskaya Milya Moscow residential complex and Rublevskaya Rivyera country village. Investigation estimates the damage caused by Polonsky at 2.6 billion rubles.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
