Former mayor of Khanty-Mansiysk region to stand trial again
The tax crimes case of Andrei Bukarinov, former Head of the Khanty-Mansiysk region, has been remanded for rehearing by a fresh panel of judges.
The new trial will soon be conducted by the Khanty-Mansiysk Regional Court. Bukarinov’s tax evasion case (art. 199. para. 2, of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) was initiated in May of 2014. Investigation revealed that the Khanty-Mansiysk construction management open joint stock company HMSU, headed by Bukarinov, had a tax deficiency of almost 16 million rubles. Hence the Federal Tax Service froze the company's accounts.
HMSU took bankruptcy, despite the fact that the company was then a main contractor of the Khanty-Mansiysk Administration, and, consequently, a very successful property developer.
The company's representatives explained that the unexpected bankruptcy stemmed from the accumulation of more than 700 million rubles of debts, which it is unable to repay. At the same time, however, Bukarinov registered a new company with a very similar name, HMSU Limited Liability Company, in which he was also director general.
These events piqued the interest of law enforcement agencies. After numerous inspections, they opened a criminal case against Bukarinov. He was acquitted and even participated in the primaries of Edinaya Rossiya for election to the Tyumen Regional Duma. However, Ugra City Court overturned the acquittal. The former Mayor has again come under criminal prosecution.
