Wife of Yurchenko is now under investigation, following former governor and his son
The Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee in Nobosibirsk initiated the criminal case against Natalia Yurchenko, the ex-wife of the Governor of the Novosibirsk, on charges of violating immigration laws.
At the end of 2014 the wife of Vasily Yurchenko issued a residence permit in Austria for a period of 3 years, without informing the Russian migration servicу.
According to the materials of the case (initiated under Art. 330.2 of the Russian Criminal Code), two years ago Natalia Yurchenko received so-called RWR-Karte up to November 2017 in the Austrian city Klagenfurt.
Legally, the governor's wife was obliged to notify the authorities of the Federal Migration Service, however, she did not do it.
The presence of the temporary Austrian residence permit was discovered only during the search in her rented apartment in Moscow, where she lived with her son Dmitry. The search was connected with the case of embezzlement of 150 million rubles from the Novosibirsk region budget, which were aimed at the construction of industrially-logistic park. One of the managers of the park was Dmitry Yurchenko.
As a result, Natalia Yurchenko is facing a fine of up to 200 thousand rubles, or forced labor for up to four hundred hours.
Let us remind that the former governor of the Novosibirsk region, Vasily Yurchenko, was dismissed by the President Vladimir Putin in connection with the loss of confidence. He is now facing two criminal cases for the abuse of power.
The Moscow City Court sentenced Mikhail Maksimenko to 13 years of strict regime and a fine of 165 million rubles ($2.7m) within the case of bribes from representatives of the criminal world. The ICR Colonel denied his guilt, calling the case a frameup.
