The ICR initiated a criminal case against Minister of Health of Kamchatka Tatyana Lemeshko, a local businessman and his lawyer over the theft of 22 million rubles ($314.900) allocated for the implementation of the regional program Health Development of Kamchatka Krai, the press service of the local department of the Ministry stated. Defendants of the case are charged with Embezzlement on an especially large scale (part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). They are detained; their arrest issue is at stake, IA Kam 24 reports.
In 2017, the investigation believes, Lemeshko conspired with the businessman and his lawyer. The entrepreneur purchased a non-residential space of 330 square meters on Larina Street in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, repaired it, and then sold it to the regional Ministry of Health for the needs of Kamchatka City Polyclinic No.3. The deal amount was 47 million rubles ($672.692). The building cost several times less. The investigation believes that at least 22 million rubles were stolen from the budget.
The office of Lemeshko, as well as the city polyclinic number 3, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Kamchatka and the organization of the suspect are searched. The Minister and her accomplices face a fine and imprisonment for up to 10 years. It is reported that more than 40 investigative and operational employees of the MIA and the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation are investigating the case.

The high-profile shootout in Oko Tower in November 2017 – at least, 40 gunshots were fired there – has led to unexpected consequences a year later.
