The former mayor of Vladivostok, Igor Pushkarev, was taken to a pre-trial detention center in the coastal capital. How long he will stay there is still unknown.

As reported on his page in Facebook Igor Pushkarev, the journey to Primorye was a long one: he was first taken from Moscow to Chelyabinsk, then to Irkutsk, Chita, then to Khabarovsk, and then to a pre-trial detention center on Partizansky Prospekt. The former head of the city said that Vladivostok is his home, and home is always better. According to Pushkarev, it is planned that he will participate in court hearings on the suit of the Prosecutor General’s Office to recover 3,2 billion rubles. He himself requested participation after reviewing the lawsuit.

Igor Pushkarev sentenced to 15 years penal colony in April 2019. He was found guilty of distributing federal money between companies controlled by himself. In May last year, the Prosecutor General’s office prepared a lawsuit against Pushkarev and his eight accomplices 3,2 billion rubles. The basis was the revealed facts of a cartel conspiracy between Pushkarev, Municipal Unitary Enterprise “Roads of Vladivostok” and the companies of the brother of the head of Vladivostok, members of the Vostokcement group.
