Kadyrov's Foundation engages in charity at state budget expense
The money for construction and "donations" came in government contracts.
The Akhmat Kadyrov's Charitable Foundation built social facilities and donated equipment at the expense of the state budget. The fund's commercial companies received state contracts and corresponding allocations from the budget. According to SPARK, the fund deposited 2.2 billion rubles ($33.2m) on accounts of the fund in 2017, and the organization spent only 154.5 million rubles on charity, Kavkaz.Realii reports.
The press service of the Chechen head refused to comment, and the fund did not respond to calls and letters. The website of the Ministry of Justice dated June 2017 the charitable organization's 2010-2016 incomes. It lacks data on the founders, expenses and account balances, which is against the law.
In 2015, Kommersant wrote that the authorities forcibly deduct about 10% from the salaries of Chechen state employees for the Kadyrov Fund.
The investigating authorities of the Chita region are running a check on Dmitry Nepomnyashchy, a former deputy of the Chita Regional Duma, and his City Duma counterpart, Alexey Guskov, who are suspected of involvement in crimes that had been committed between 1995 and 2005.
College surveillance cameras captured the alleged perpetrator: a young blond-haired man wearing a white T-shirt. The 112 Telegram Channel reported that the attacker had been found dead on the second floor of the building.
