Krylia Sovetov FC footballer stripped of driving license for 1.5 year for drink driving
Evgeny Bashkirov has also paid a 30 thousand rubles ($450) fine.
PFC Krylia Sovetov Samara's midfielder Evgeny Bashkirov has been stripped of his driving license for 1.5 year for drink driving and sentenced to pay a fine of 30 thousand rubles ($450). The sentence has been delivered by a magistrate judge of the 129 division in St.Petersburg (the case was being considered at the place of registration of residence of the football player).
The CrimeRussia had earlier reported Evgeny Bashkirov had been detained at the wheel of a rental car in a state of intoxication. Alcohol in exhaled air was 3 times beyond permissible. At the time of detention, Bashkirov’s behaviour was humble and modest. Later, the footballer apologized to Samara's FC fans. Executives of PFC Krylia Sovetov Samara did not terminate the defensive midfielder’s deal following the embarrassing incident.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
