Head of Russian Authors' Society received new damages and suretyship in respect of Mikhalkov
There are new facts in a criminal case against Sergei Fedotov, the Head of the Russian Authors' Society.
According to updated information, Fedotov’s damages come to 297 million rubles (previously it was reported about 500 million rubles). On June 30, 2016, investigators accused him of Swindling on an especially large scale (Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Defence Denis Baluev explained that imputing to Fedotov crime is constrained by Fedotov’s conveyance of property to a subsidiary limited liability.
Baluev also reported that the president of the Russian Union of Right Holders, Nikita Mikhalkov, has signed a personal suretyship for Fedotov on the day of his arrest, 30 June 2016. Mikhalkov said this was made to facilitate leniency. The national artist explained his willingness to stand up for Fedotov was for humane reasons. "On a human level I believe that Sergey Fedotov's preventive measure would be more humane," - said Mikhalkov. At the same time, he claimed that he had no share in the Russian Authors' Society business. However, the life stories of Nikita Mikhalkov and Sergei Fedotov's seem to show the contrary.
Previously, The CrimeRussia wrote about the connection between Russian Authors' Society and the Russian Union of Right Holders, and Mikhalkov and Fedotov as business collaborators.
Investigators asked the Tagansky District Court of Moscow to arrest the Head before 17th of August. He was detained on June 28, 2016 after a night interrogation at the police.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
Earlier, it was reported that the head of the Shali district of Chechnya, Turpal-Ali Ibragimov, Ramzan Kadyrov’s cousin, was responsible for the accident with two dead. Now the republican MIA officially declares that Ibragimov’s second cousin was driving.
