Widow who brought coffin to Samara government turns down help of authorities
The woman didn’t manage to bury her husband in a paid-up spot and found another one.
Widow who brought a coffin of her late husband to Samara government has turned down help of authorities as she had solved the issue on her own. She earlier stated some men had not let her bury her husband in a paid-up spot at the cemetery of Rubezhnoye due to the fact that she had made terms with a self-employed entrepreneur and not with a monopolist organization. Next day, the native of Samara found a spot at another cemetery in a village, reports RIA Novosti.
“Representatives of the Governor called me and asked if I needed help. Now, I don’t need help any more,” the widow said.
In her words, on February 21, she had to return a coffin of her husband’s dead body to a farewell ceremony’s hall in Samara and get back home to Togliatti. Governor of Samara region Dmitry Azarov ordered a head of the city Elena Lapushkina and Department for Counteracting to Corruption to deal with the incident and the Ministry of Social Protection to provide all necessary assistance to the deceased person’s relatives. Police launched inspection.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
