Former Chelyabinsk official was caught on frauds with housing for orphans twice
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.
Nonexistent road. Driveway to school belonging to Sberbank CEO’s wife concealed from Moscow residents
A driveway to a private school has been laid through the yards of Wellton Park residential complex despite protests of its residents. However, officials in the Construction Department somehow believe that there is no road there yet. They claim that the ‘future’ road would provide access to the new perinatal center, school, and homes – while at this point, a contractor has been just selected and permission documentation is in preparation. The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
The presidential election scheduled for March 18 should be held as a holiday - the Kremlin gave such order to the regions. The Presidential Administration expects that the festive atmosphere at polling stations will increase the turnout, sources told RBC.
