One Flew Over Edinaya Rossiya
On the eve of elections the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) learned about what kind of messuages did members of the Edinaya Rossiya (United Russia) build during the crisis.
Elections to the State Duma is in the offing. In this regard, the FBK has launched a new initiative. They launched a quadrocopter into the sky. This was reported by Alexey Navalny in his blog.
Several years ago, the FBK has already shown a bird's-eye view of dachny koorperativ's photos, which was created by members of the party Edinaya Rossiya and the staff of the Presidential Administration. "Some of the houses were just built, since that time in the country the crisis broke out," there is no money, but keep yourself" and so on. And we are interesting to see, perhaps, these people have the crisis too. Well, the price of lining is risen", - explained the new interest in the elite Sosna village Alexey Navalny.
According to the FBK, in the cooperative there were built the mansion of Sergey Prikhodko, the Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration, the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the State Duma Deputy from Edinaya Rossiya Igor Rudenskoy and the party member Nikolay Ashlapov.
But a special attention of anti-corruption fighters was brought to the living conditions of the First Vice President of Administration Vyacheslav Volodin and the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Sergey Neverov, as they will participate in the upcoming elections, and likely to become MPs and leaders of the State Duma.
Flying over the nest of officials, members of the FBK concluded that the crisis did not prevent main candidates of the Edinaya Rossiya to build apartments. Volodin’s mansion with helicopter landing pad the FBK’s campaigners estimated at 160 million rubles. Hard times have not prevented Serge Neverov to complete the construction and pay for the expensive landscaping on the site. His estate the FBK estimated at 120 million rubles. According to the FBK, the source of such money Sergey Neverov called the sale a two-bedroom apartment in Novokuznetsk and financial assistance from the mother-in-law.
"It does not hesitate to live on unearned income. Where's the money, it’s easy to guess - bribes, kickbacks, black cash. It is corruption, in general. And Edinaya Rossiya goes to Duma only because they want to steal more", - concluded Alexey Navalny.
Elections to the State Duma will be held on September 18, 2016.

Corruption is overwhelming in the Republic of Bashkortostan. It infiltrates all branches of power. The recent arrests in the Bashkir Prosecutor’s Office clearly show that justice can be bought and sold there, while the verdict of Themis depends only on the purse size. All powerful officials and businessmen in the republic know how much it costs to institute or dismiss a case. After the replacement of the regional head, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation has found out that not only the supreme authorities of the Republican Prosecutor’s Office are involved in the corruption scheme – but judges and high-ranked police commanders as well. What officials have sullied their reputation with bribe-taking and are going to fall victims to yet another sweeping purge? What are millions of rubles paid for? What is the true scale of corruption in the region – champion among national republics by that parameter?
