Nikita Belykh announced his engagement in Facebook
The former Governor of the Kirov region, who is currently in a pre-trial detention center on charges of bribe-taking, announced his engagement on his Facebook page the other day.
The former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh is no longer an eligible bachelor. He has recently changed his Facebook status from "Single" to "Engaged". Let us recall, his fiancee Ekaterina Rayfert had earlier refused to comment on whether the couple was preparing for wedding. She had merely told media they were doing everything possible in order to marry. The arrested official's lawyer Vadim Prokhorov has also declined to comment on the news.
Nevertheless, friends of Nikita Belykh are already congratulating the couple on the joyful event.
Meanwhile, citing the Deputy Chairman of the Moscow Public Oversight Commission Eva Merkacheva, media had previously reported that the former Kirov region Governor was preparing for wedding. Eva Merkacheva had also noted that the date for the ceremony had been appointed.
It should be reminded that Nikita Belykh is accused of taking a bribe in the amount of 400 thousand euros. He was arrested by the ICR and FSB officers on June 24 at a Moscow restaurant.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
Last year's wave of governors' resignations, which temporary termination was announced in November 2017 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak, will resume soon after March 18. The CrimeRussia figures out who will lose governor's seat.
