ICR Head Bastrykin requires to check legality of Molodinskoe field development
The ICR Main Directorate for the Moscow region is checking into the development of the Molodinskoe field territory.
The check has been initiated by Head of the Investigation Committee of the Russian Federation Aleksandr Bastrykin.
The construction in the Molodinskoe field is conducted by a St. Petersburg commercial construction company.
According to the information posted on the ICR's website, Head of the agency Aleksandr Bastrykin demanded to conduct a check and give a comprehensive legal assessment of the real estate developer's actions, as well as those of the officials who allowed the development of the Molodinskoe field. In addition, the ICR head commissioned to verify the procedure for alienating land in favor of the construction company.
Such close attention to the construction in this area is due to the fact that the Molodinskoe field is of historical value to Russia. In the 16th century, battles with the Crimean khan were fought on this territory; eventually, the lands were defended and saved by the Muscovia.
The media disseminated information that a bankrupt farmer had sold 53 hectares of land to a St. Petersburg company that intended to build assembly shops on the Molodinskoe field. However, the company concealed the development plans not only from local residents, but also from the district administration. Meanwhile, the territory is already full of special machinery, and construction works are underway.
Unnecessary witness. Death of penitentiary service lieutenant colonel Viktor Shevchenko: Suicide or murder?
Two events occurred in close succession in the Irkutsk region. On February 11, 2018, it became known that major general Anatoly Kilanov, Head of the Regional Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, was removed from office. The main suspect in an anti-corruption inquest carried out in late 2017, Kilanov was accused of extorting ‘levies’ from his subordinates. On February 12, 2018, Viktor Shevchenko, his deputy for service support, was found hanged. The investigation is currently explaining this suicide by a family quarrel. Has the lieutenant colonel really taken his own life? Or was it a disguised murder? And if so, who could be interested in it?
