A criminal case for bribery was opened against the head of the Makarovsky district of the Sakhalin region. Andrei Kraskovsky was detained.

According to the press service of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for the Sakhalin Region, in December 2020, the mayor of the district received 59 million rubles from a 1,2-year-old resident of the region for general patronage and the provision of benefits when concluding municipal contracts. For accepting a bribe on an especially large scale, Kraskovsky may face imprisonment for a term of eight to fifteen years with a fine of up to seventy times the amount of the bribe.

At the same time, the investigation of a criminal case against a number of residents of the Makarovsky district on the fact of fraudulent embezzlement of money from the municipal budget continues.

Searches with seizure of documents were held in the offices of the Mayor's Office of the Makarovsky District of the Sakhalin Region on May 12. The Investigative Committee and the Economic Crime Department checked information about the involvement of the mayor Andrei Kraskovsky in extortion and bribe-taking from a local businessman.
