Former Chelyabinsk official was caught on frauds with housing for orphans twice
Rustam Satybaldin

The ex-government employee is accused of official power abuse.

A criminal case over abuse of official powers (part 3 article 285 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) was for the second time initiated against former chief of the department of property and land relations of the Kunashak district of the Chelyabinsk Region Rustam Satybaldin.

It is remarkable that Satybaldin already has a probation under the same article. Both cases, as URA.RU reports, are connected with housing for orphan children.

According to the investigators, in 2015 the official signed contracts for the sum of more than 1,7 million rubles ($29 thousand) on the acquisition of two rooms in the Kunashak village from a business concern at the expense of budget funds. The rooms bought according to papers for orphan children in practice were unsuitable for accommodation. In particular, the apartments did not have a ventilation system, hot water supply and so on. Nevertheless, former pupils of orphanages were transferred there.

The investigation of Satybaldin’s frauds was initiated after Vadim Zakirov acting then as head of the district was arrested. After a wave of criminal cases against Zakirov's subordinates, the area received the informal status of the most corrupted.
