Medvedev was asked to check Navalny's investigation against Shuvalov
The State Duma deputy from the faction Spravedlivaya Rossiya, Oleg Shein, has officially appealed to the head of the government with the request to check the information stated by the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) of Alexei Navalny related to the First Deputy Prime Minister, Igor Shuvalov.
RBK writes that, in particular, Shein is interested in the data regarding the use of personal business jet Bombardier Global Express with onboard number M-VQBI by Shuvalov's family. It's owned by the company Altitude X3 Ltd registered in Bermuda. The question rises from the fact that the total income of Shuvalov's family in 2015, according to tax documents, did not exceed 190 million rubles.
In his address to the Prime Minister, Shein refers to the provisions of the Code of ethics and official conduct of public officials, which implies that people, being on government service, should avoid situations that would have harmed the image and authority of the organization they represent.
If the ownership or renting a private jet strengthens the reputation of state authorities of the Russian Federation, the Deputy claimed "to consider a response to the letter as unnecessary."
It should be reminded that according to the FBK, the Deputy Prime Minister's wife, Olga Shuvalova, has used the aircraft for private purposes, taking their dogs of Welsh Corgi Pembroke breed to the international exhibitions.
According to the Anti-corruption Foundation, Shuvalova confirmed the existence of the aircraft herself, but later in the comments to BBC she denied this information.
Official representatives of the Deputy Prime Minister also refused to comment on the Navalny’s dirt about the aircraft, whereas earlier Sergey Kotlyarenko, the lawyer of Igor Shuvalov, confirmed FBK's information about the purchase of apartments in the Stalin's skyscraper on the Kotelnicheskaya waterfront.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
