Former Head of Sergiev Posad was extradited to Russia after being in international search
On the 8th of July The Republic of Serbia has extradited Victor Bukin to Russia, the former head of Sergiev Posad, who was in the international wanted list for about six months.
According to the Investigative Committee in the Kostroma region, the former Head of Sergiev Posad (municipal district of the Moscow Region), Viktor Bukin, is being accused of Bribe-taking on a large scale - Part 6 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code.
According to the investigating authorities, in 2014 the director of a company in Kostroma filed the statement to the administration of Sergiev Posad about recovering of 48 million rubles. With that, the Head of the local administration, Viktor Bukin, illegally demanded giving him 50% of the requested amount. Otherwise, the indebtedness would not be cancelled. Also Bukin said that the Head of the legal Department of the local administration would represent his interests.
In June 2015 the administration transferred part of the payment to the company’s bank account. After that, on 10th of July, Klimov representing Bukin, came to Kostroma to get a bribe of 6 million rubles. As soon as he got the money, he was detained by the FSB (Federal Security Service) officers.
After the criminal case on the fact of corruption was initiated, Viktor Bukin left Russia, hiding from the investigation authorities. For about six months the official was wanted internationally.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, he was arrested in late December 2015 on the territory of Serbia. The police detained him in the city of Novi Sad, where he lived lately.
Recently the Serbian authorities have sent Bukin to Russia. In the nearest future the ex-official will arrive in Kostroma for the investigation.
As far as his deputy – the Head of legal Department of Sergiev Posad’s administration, Sergei Klimov, the criminal case against him was considered by the court. He was found guilty under Part 4 Art. 291.1 of the Russian Criminal Code (Mediation in bribery) and obligated to pay the fine of 30 million rubles.
Tougher terms of the competition are directly related to the desire of construction company Design and Construction Agency Zhilstroy affiliated with the former Head of Rosstroy, banker Vladimir Kogan, to participate in it.
An investigation into the criminal case against former Military Commandant of Chechnya Leonid Krivonos and Deputy Chief of Staff of the North Caucasus Regional Command of the MIA Internal Troops Andrey Golovatsky has been completed.
