Bashkiria: three children, 16 adults injured in bus accident
Doctors call conditions of two people severe.
In Sterlitamak, the Republic of Bashkortostan, a shuttle bus crashed into a power transmission line support, as a result of which 19 people were injured, including three children. None of the injured needed transportation to Ufa. 15 people were taken to the hospital, TASS reports, referring to the press secretary of the Ministry of Health of the Republic, Svetlana Kusarbekova.
“19 injured asked for medical help, three of them were children. The condition of two is assessed as severe, the rest are moderately severe and satisfactory,” the press service said.
According to preliminary information, the accident occurred about 3 pm, or 5 pm local time, on the Tekhnicheskaya Street.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
