Solver from Rosselkhoznadzor was put into for swindling
The ex-Head of the Federal Service for Veterinarian and Vegetation Sanitary Supervision (Rosselkhoznadzor) in Moscow and Moscow region has promised to mitigate the sentence to the convict through the prosecutor friend.
A Moscow court has sentenced the former Head of the Rosselkhoznadzor in Moscow and Moscow region Alexey Volkov. Under the article Swindling on an especially large scale (part 4 of article 159 of the Criminal Code), he faced up 7 years and 3 months in prison.
Volkov was arrested in Moscow by the FSB, while receiving 500 thousand dollars from the family to the Head of the failed First Republic Bank Levon Hayrapetyan. This is the amount, in which he appreciated his assistance in mitigating the punishment to the businessman, accused in the withdrawal of the bank's assets in the amount of more than 1.7 billion rubles. Moreover, according to Volkov, the money was not meant to him personally, but for the Moscow prosecutor and longtime friend of Volkov - Sergey Kudeneev. Later Volkov recanted. However, Kudeneev filed resignation and went on vacation with subsequent dismissal.
To the FSB relatives of Hayrapetyan appealed after Volkov's promises were not fulfilled and the Moscow City Court upheld the conviction - 3 yearsin the penal colony. By the way, this is not the first case against Volkov. In 2006, he was detained on suspicion of taking bribes. Then the case was dismissed by the Moscow City Prosecutor's Office. A year later, Volkov again became involved in the case – he was accused of extorting a large sum of money, but then was acquitted by a jury.
Recently, on the free ads website Avito.ru quite an unusual offer appeared among the proposals to buy used things, cars, etc. – about the sale of Tushinsky Mashinostroitelny Zavod (TMZ), OJSC (Tushinsky Machine Building Plant), the assets of which were estimated by the sellers at 10.35 billion rubles ($163 million). The cadastral valuation date of the plant is January-June 2018. But, according to experts, even in cadastral value, it should be estimated at no less than 18.7 billion rubles ($294 million). However, this ad is already missing at the mentioned link in the section “Ready-made business. Production.”
According to the court, an entrepreneur Sergey Gafurov, who became the head of Zakonovskie OCG in 2016, was behind the attack on lawyer Tamazi Kerimov, who represented the gang leader's opponent in court. The court's decision on the case will be made on July 23.
