ICR: Belgorod police beat and forcibly plied detainee with alcohol
In the Belgorod region, two police officers got prosecuted for abuse of power – they have beaten and forcibly plied a detainee with alcohol.
A criminal case under item a part 3 of Art. 286 of the Russian Criminal Code (Exceeding Official Powers) has been initiated against them.
According to investigative bodies, the incident took place on November 23 last year in the Prokhorovksy district, Belgorod region. The police had invited one of the locals to the police department to hold a conversation and find out his involvement in the commission of certain crimes. As a result, the police beat him, and then, putting handcuffs on him, forcibly poured alcohol into his mouth. Thus they intended to bring the man to administrative responsibility.
According to experts, they inflicted about 50 blows to various parts of the victim's body, causing various injuries.
The two policemen have been detained; criminal cases have been initiated against them.

After the murder of Aleksander Zakharchenko, everything has changed in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR). A redistribution of spheres of influence is ongoing in the region at all levels of the state (and not only state) power. It is not a secret that Denis Pushilin, Interim Acting Head of the DPR, has been dreaming about this post for four years. Although he was among the DPR leaders, being the Chairman of the People’s Council and Permanent Representative to the Minsk Contact Group, Pushilin had no possibility to implement his financial plans and schemes, nor had he access to shady financial flows. The ‘Trapeznikov–Tashkent’ team spreading pervasive corruption in the republic was in charge of this sector.
Mikhail Gorbatov from the office of the President who had been responsible for implementation of presidential decrees related to granting pardon and political asylum helped his partners in crime to intimidate an entrepreneur.
