Ulyukaev is the only person involved in criminal case of bribery
Rosneft stressed that during the transaction representatives of Rosneft have repeatedly drawn attention "to the very strange behavior" of various officials.
The Economic Development Minister Alexey Ulyukaev, who on November, 14 was caught red-handed on a bribe of $ 2 million, remains the only defendant in the case, according to TASS.
Currently, the member of the Government is questioned by ICR investigators. A law enforcement source told the news agency that after that the measure of restraint will be chosen.
Recall, according to law enforcement, the detention of Alexey Ulyukaev is associated with a large bribe. The Minister of Economic Development has received it for the promotion of Rosneft in the acquisition of state-owned stake in the Bashneft, the official representative of the ICR Svetlana Petrenko said.
The source of the CrimeRussia, in turn, noted that the detention of Alexey Ulyukaev is aligned with the large-scale anti-corruption FSB operation, within the framework of which there were conducted several high-profile arrests of high-ranking officers of the MIA, the ICR and the officials.
Ulyukaev has been under the supervision of law enforcement officers for over a year. His telephone conversations were tapped since the end of the summer, the sanction on his arrest was issued by the court at the request of investigators.
Meanwhile, the official representative of Rosneft Mikhail Leontiev assured the media that the transaction of Bashneft shares has been carried out correctly. At the same time, Leontiev drew attention "to the strange behavior of the officials in the course of processing the transaction.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
