Znak: head of Russian Railways branch Mironov becomes person of interest in another case
An informed source of the publication said that the information on the manager “went well.”
Investigators initiated a second case against the head of the Sverdlovsk Railway, Alexey Mironov. The details of the case have not been disclosed yet. After the manager’s arrest, the security forces began receiving compromising information regarding him, Znak.com reports, referring to own sources.
“It’s one thing when a person is sitting in his chair, it’s quite a different thing when he is sitting in other, “not so remote,” places. The information regarding him, let's say, went well,” the publication quotes the officer from a security agency as saying.
Mironov’s supporter noted that the new episode transpired before the hearing on the appeal for the arrest of the Sverdlovsk Railway head. “The charges against Mironov, to put it mildly, nothing to shout about. It seems that they brought up a new episode, just to leave him in jail,” the source said.
The court arrested Mironov on December 14 for allegedly receiving a bribe of 725,000 rubles ($ 10,500). According to the investigators, in 2015-2016, the director of StroyTIKS LLC, Yevgeny Savranin, transferred Mironov the said amount through the design bureau Premium LLC for patronage in the distribution of Russian Railways contracts.
Mironov pleads innocent and stressed that he had no business with Savranin and his company, but concluded a contract with Premium.
