The lawyer of Nikita Belykh explained the appearance of paint on the hands of the governor
The defense of detained Kirov Governor, Nikita Belykh, said that the special paint from bills, which he received just before the moment of arrest, is not from money, but from hands of a man that brought them.
"Probably, glowing paint appeared on his hands after he greeted the man, who was carrying a bag with money. But Belykh did not touch the money, "- the lawyer is convinced.
In addition to that, Teterin confirmed the version that was brought up yesterday about money being not a bribe, but "a sponsorship intended for the needs of the region."
Let’s remind that Belykh is accused of receiving a bribe equivalent to 400 thousand euros from a foreign investor, although he insists that money was intended for the needs of Kirov city.
Yesterday the Mayor of Kirov, Vladimir Bykov, said that the governor did gathered a meeting with entrepreneurs, offering them to invest in local projects, but to the moment administration didn’t receive any payments.
Officers of the Federal Security Service (FSB) and the Investigative Committee caught red-handed the governor of the Kirov region in a Moscow restaurant on June 24th. On the same day he was charged with a large-scale bribery. Yesterday, the court decided to detain Nikita Belykh for two months.
Despite the fact that the head of the state corporation Rostec claimed he did not aspire to become prime minister in 2017, already in 2018 the media reported that he might join the government after all.
