Igor Pushkarev convicted on 15 years of a strict regime colony

Igor Pushkarev convicted on 15 years of a strict regime colony
On Tuesday, in the Tverskoy Court of Moscow, until late evening, the verdict was announced in the case of the ex-mayor of Vladivostok, Igor Pushkarev. The verdict turned out to be extremely harsh: 15 years of a strict regime colony, a ban on occupying senior positions in public service for 10 years, a fine of 500 million rubles and compensation to MUP "Vladivostok Roads" of 143 million rubles.

Igor Pushkarev's brother - Andrey Pushkarev - was sentenced to 8 years probation on probation for 5 years. He is obliged to pay a fine in the amount of 500 million rubles, he is forbidden to hold senior positions in commercial structures for a period of three years. A suspended sentence is explained by the disability of Andrey Pushkarev.

The third participant in the process - the former head of the MUP "Roads of Vladivostok" Andrei Lushnikov - was sentenced to 10 years of strict regime, with the payment of a fine of 500 million rubles. He is also forbidden to hold senior positions in the civil service for a period of 10 years.

Igor Pushkarev was detained in June 2016. The media then noted a particular harshness applied during the detention and transfer to Moscow.

The ex-mayor does not admit his guilt and insists on the political background of the process: according to him, the criminal case against him was inspired by the ex-governor of Primorsky Krai Vladimir Miklushevsky. “It was completely obvious to me that they were trying me not for having committed any crimes,” said Igor Pushkarev in his last word on March 1. “The investigation itself did not conceal that I was imprisoned as a result of criticism of the former Governor of Primorsky Krai The result of this criticism was a long political conflict between VV Miklushevsky and me, which reached its apogee in April 2016, when I won the regional primaries, on the eve of the elections to the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation of the Russian Federation and the Legislative Assembly of the Primorsky Territory, which were to be held on September 18, 2016. "

The plot of the charges is that in the period from 2008 to 2015 years, Igor Pushkarev distributed federal funds allocated for the development of Vladivostok roads between companies controlled by himself. The total amount of contracts is 1,2 billion rubles. At the same time, the court found it proven that the ex-mayor received bribes from his company, Vostokcement. The total volume of bribes amounted to 75 million rubles, and most of them are the payment by the company of goods and services meant for Igor Pushkarev.

As a result, as the investigation established, the close relatives of the mayor received dividends in the amount of 471,7 million rubles from the income of the Vostokcement group of companies, and MNP Vladivostok Roads suffered damage on 143,6 million rubles, as the company purchased building materials at a price higher than the cost products of other suppliers.

The defendants in court categorically denied the guilt. After the verdict was announced, the lawyers of the convicts announced their intention to appeal.
