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.
