The Ingodinsky District Court of Chita found the former Minister of Agriculture of Transbaikalia Mikhail Kuzminov and his deputy Irina Malakshinova guilty of exceeding their official powers. Ex-officials were banned from holding positions in state and municipal service for 4,5 years.

According to the press service of the regional prosecutor's office, in 2017 the minister and his deputy intervened in the activities of seven agricultural producers, who had previously received subsidies from the federal budget. Officials initiated the adoption of an illegal decision on the early repayment of subsidies. As a result, the farmers seized more than ten million rubles.

The court banned each of the ex-officials for 4,5 years from holding positions in the state and municipal service related to the implementation of organizational and administrative functions and administrative and economic powers. The verdict has not yet entered into legal force.

The officials were detained in February 2018. Two months later, the court sent the ex-minister under house arrest. The minister and his deputy did not admit their guilt... The prosecutor's office asked the court for a real term of imprisonment for Kuzminov and Malakshinova.
