South-Ural Russian Railways deputy head’s wife charged with two counts of bribery
A woman is suspected of receiving more than 400 thousand rubles ($6800).
Investigators of the Kurgan region have initiated two criminal cases against 55-year-old Lyudmila Domoskanova, the inspector of the Russian Railways South Ural Directorate for the Exploitation of Buildings and Structures of the South Ural Railroad. As specified by the portal URA.NEWS, the woman is the wife of deputy chief of the south-ural Railroad in the Kurgan region Sergey Domoskanov.
According to the investigation, Domoskanova received two bribes on a large scale. So, in the period from October 2016 to November 2017, the woman received 175.360 rubles ($3000) for general patronage from the head of one of their construction firms, a potential contractor. The second episode is dated from April 2016 to September 2017 - according to a similar scenario Domoskanova received another 232.400 rubles ($4000).
It is noted that the detention of the suspect was carried out by the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB). The investigation of the criminal case is ongoing.
Clouds are gathering over the ICR general. His former subordinate Aleksey Kramarenko, arrested in late 2017 in the case of a bribe to high-ranking ICR officers from thief in law Zakhary Kalashov, has revealed the involvement of his former immediate superior in the corruption episode.
