Lenoblleskhoz ex-CEO Nikolay Burenin makes 33 deals with himself
The investigative authorities opened a criminal case against the ex-head of Lenoblleskhoz for abuse of official powers, 47news reported.
According to the investigation, Burenin made 33 imaginary transactions with OOO VIKVUD for a total of more than 5 million rubles ($85.000) in 2015. He used to be the company’s CEO, and now his wife is.
According to SPARK-Interfax, currently 91.67% of VIKVUD belong to Tatiana Burenina. The company belonged to Nikolai Burenin between 2010 and 2015. In March 2015, he became Lenoblleskhoz CEO and managed the enterprise until January 28, 2016. In 2015, VIKVUD also won in two Lenoblleskhoz purchases and got a contract for glade clearing worth 19.275.250 rubles ($333.400).
Lately, the financial condition of the enterprise has been alarming. Last year, Lenoblleskhoz lost almost 60 million rubles ($1m) and a year earlier about 40 million rubles ($690.000). In total, the enterprise owes approximately 100 million rubles ($1.7m) to the contractors.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
