Karelia: ex-minister detained in fraud case for $51.000.
Dmitry Matviets headed the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities and Energy.
The police detained the former minister of construction housing and utilities and energy of Karelia, Dmitry Matviets in the fraud case for 3.5 million rubles ($51.000), sources of TASS and online publication Stolitsa na Onego reported.
As reported in the Karelian MIA press service, the criminal case was instituted under part 4 of Article 159 CCRF (fraud). The police found that the management of the resource-supplying organization, which is engaged in heating a number of districts of Karelia, filed false documents and stole 3.5 million rubles through an illegal VAT-refund.
In 2013-2016, Matveits headed the company Karelenergoresurs which supplied heat to settlements in Medvezhiegorsk, Suojarv, Belomorsk, Kalevala, Muezersk, Pudozh, Kem, Segezh and Loukh districts of the republic.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
