Dagestan: former district head caught fraud and forgery
Former civil servant enriched himself at the expense of the program on resettlement of citizens from emergency housing.
The court in Dagestan sentenced Ruslan Toturbiev, the former head of the Kumtorklinsky District, to 4.5 years in prison for fraud and forgery by an offical. As the investigation established, the defendant stole from the budget money allocated for the program of resettlement of citizens from emergency housing, the ICR’s Investigative Directorate for the republic reports.
According to the investigation materials, Toturbiev created a criminal group of employees of the district administration, which in the years 2011-2013 had embezzled more than 162 million rubles ($ 2,48 million). Toturbiev was detained in 2013, but was soon released on bail. However, the civil servant went to Moscow, and from there to Belarus, where he was detained again.
The remaining 11 members of the organized criminal group were sentenced to four years, seven of them received a real term, and four were sentenced to probation.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
