Tyumen Water Supply CEO extorts $34.000 bribe
The official promised a certain company to sign a work completion certificate in return for the money.
Tyumen security forces arrested the CEO of Vodokanal (Tyumen Unitary Enterprise of Water Supply) on suspicion of taking a large-scale bribe.
According to investigators, the Vodokanal CEO extorted a bribe from an unnamed company. The official wanted the money for signing work completion certificates and was caught in the act of taking the 1.8 million rubles. The CEO is accused of Bribe-Taking on a considerable scale under Art. 290 of the Criminal Code.
According to a version of a Znak.com’s source in law enforcement, the charges may be associated with the tenders that the unitary enterprise had announced.
It should be noted that public sources state Dmitry Antonov as the Tyumen Vodokanal CEO.
The Tyumen’s Department of Property Relations is the only founder of the Tyumen Municipal Unitary Enterprise of Water and Sanitation Sector. Vodokanal signed 317 million rubles worth of contracts as the Customer over the past 12 months.

What could be the next twist in the career of Potomsky?
