Smolensk region's Government told about Ulyukaev's sequestrated cowshed
The house with greenhouses and a cowshed is no different from other houses in the Abramovo village.
Head of the Vyazishchensky rural settlement administration of Tyomkinsky district Aleksandr Gerasimov told about a house in the Abramovo village sequestrated alongside with other property of former Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev.
According to him, the two-storey house with greenhouses and a cowshed is no different from other houses.
As RIA Novosti notes, the rural settlement authorities were practically not interested in Ulyukaev's property and what was happening in the private landed estate up to the arrest of the former minister.
According to Gerasimov, apart from the house, Aleksey Ulyukaev owns more land in Abramovo, a small village of 50 households in Smolensk. In his words, the ex-Minister of Economic Development rarely visited the village, mainly for hunting or fishing. The villagers learnt about the house arrest from the news.
Let us recall that Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev was arrested November 14, 2016 when receiving a bribe of 2 million rubles. According to investigation, the bribe was a payment for a positive assessment on the acquisition of Bashneft's shareholding by Rosneft. Ulyukaev was charged under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code (Acceptance of a bribe by a person holding public office, with extortion and on an especially large scale). The following day, Vladimir Putin dismissed Ulyukaev from his post due to the loss of confidence.
January 10, the court extended the house arrest for Ulyukaev for three months, and January 11, 15 real estate units and funds amounting to 564 million rubles owned by the ex-minister were seized. Currently, the investigation continues to search for property owned by Ulyukaev.
Previously, the CrimeRussia reported about Ulyukaev's 12 land plots with total area of 160 hectares, a residential house, an apartment, and a villa. 5 more land plots are in the use of the former Minister of Economic Development's wife.
A St. Petersburg company Renessans-Restavratsiya JSC, involved in a criminal case under Art. 169 (Swindling) of the Russian Criminal Code, has been selected to receive the contract. The case was initiated in September 2017 in connection with the failure to perform 4-million-ruble ($70 thousand) works to restore a XVI-century fortress in the Leningrad region.
