Social activists accuse Head of Yakutia of corruption
The head of the public organization called Yakutia – Nashe Mneniye (Yakutia - Our Opinion) Stepan Petrov believes an organized criminal group which is headed by Yegor Borisov carries out activities in the Republic.
The social activist wants to initiate comprehensive inspections like those that took place in the Komi Republic and Sakhalin, where the criminal networks were led by the heads of the RF subjects (cases of Khoroshavin and Gayzer’s OCG), reports IA REGNUM.
Petrov believes that the corrupt Yakutian politicians control the financial flows, favorable government orders, profitable businesses, using them for personal profit.
The leader of the public organization gives the example of a situation in the company RFA-Invest, against the CEO of which a criminal case on suspicion of embezzlement of 160 million rubles has been recently initiated.
In large Yakut companies with state participation, one cannot find random people and in most cases they withdraw funds not for themselves but for Yakutia's leaders and their relatives. Therefore, the Head of Yakutia Yegor Borisov can be directly involved in this case, said Petrov.
He also does not exclude that the election campaign of Yakutia’s government may be financed this way.
Last week, the entire world has celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Internet. In the meantime, the Russian legislators have adopted new laws restricting the development of the Russian-speaking segment of the world wide web. The 'fake news' and 'internet insults' laws adopted under the pretext of protecting the society from manipulations and threat, including external ones, violate the Constitution and some federal laws in relation to the right to search for, obtain, and use information. Furthermore, the bill on ‘sovereign Internet’ passed in the first reading by the State Duma leads us directly to self-isolation.
