Management of Khabarovsk Vodokanal suspected of swindle
The Head of city Vodokanal and his subordinates are suspected of swindle of 130 million rubles ($2.2m).
Heads of the Khabarovsk Vodokanal Municipal Unitary Enterprise and several businessmen became persons involved in criminal case over swindle of 130 million rubles. Funds were allocated for construction of the Tungus water intake, the press service of the Investigative Committee of the region reports.
Earlier it was reported that on past weeks the Head of the Vodokanal, deputy of the Khabarovsk City Council Vladimir Steblevsky, and his son-in-law businessman Sergey Makarov were arrested.
Besides, at five defendants in the case searches were carried out. Investigators found and arrested large sums of cash, bank accounts, real estate and cars. The water intake for construction of which 11.3 billion rubles are already spent did not reach the design capacity.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
