Two heads of charitable foundation convicted of raping volunteer
The defendants’ rivals helped to investigate the case.
The court in Kursk sentenced the heads of the charity foundation Vasha opora (Your Support), Yevgeny Gololobov, 25, and Alexey Kuklin, 22, to four years in a general regime penal colony for raping a 18-year-old volunteer, the regional ICR’s Investigative Directorate reports. The agency emphasized that it would have been impossible to investigate the case without the help of the head of the fund Skoraya molodezhnaya pomosch (Emergency Youth Aid) fund, Anton Androsov and Alexander Alexandrov.

The activist repeatedly tried to stop the activities of the Your Support in Kursk and Belgorod. In response, Gololobov and Kuklin created in a group called False fighters on a social network, in which they accused Androsov of PR.
To prove their charitable activity, Your Support demonstrated the purchase of sound equipment for a military unit, with which the Defense Ministry allegedly could not provide it.
Earlier, Gololobov and Kuklin volunteered to the foundation Region Kursk, which, after a wave of investigations against street fraudsters who pretended to be philanthropists, signed a declaration of good faith in the field of charity and refused street donations. Shortly thereafter, for some unknown reason, the foundation broke up with the future founders of Your Support, and they continued their activities in Belgorod. At the same time, almost none of the volunteers and the leaders of the organization have been
