Investigation of a criminal case concerning former Head of Tambov Yuri Rogachev is completed. The press service of the Investigative Committee of the region reports about it on Thursday, October 12.
As it is specified in a release, the former Mayor is accused of Abuse of Official Powers (part 2 of Art. 285 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and Official Forgery (part 2 of Art. 292 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
According to the investigators, Rogachev, being the Mayor, signed two government contracts on repair of roads, however, in fact, the order has not been executed. Law enforcement authorities assessed damages from actions of the official at 117 million rubles ($2 million). The former city's Mayor said that transferring money in advance he “helped the company to buy materials.”
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
