The Khabarovsk Central District Court found Vasily Shikhalev, former deputy chairman of the Khabarovsk Territory Government, guilty of abuse of power. He was sentenced to 4,5 years probation. 

The former official must also return more than 77 million rubles in compensation for damages in suits of the Federal Forestry Agency. As reported TASS, for 4,5 years, Shikhalev was forbidden to occupy certain positions. The ex-deputy chairman pleaded guilty and entered into a pre-trial agreement, so his case was examined in a special order.

Vasily Shikhalev  became a defendant in the criminal case on abuse of authority and fraud on a particularly large scale in March last year. According to investigators, he helped the Asia Forest company, which, despite the failure to fulfill obligations to develop woodworking production, received from the federal budget more than one billion rubles subsidies. The company also illegally cut down forest for more than nine million rubles. In May 2019, he was sent from jail. under house arrest.

Another defendant in the case is the former director of the company "Asia Les" Alexander Pudovkin. He, like Shikhalev, was in jail, but in June last year he achieved house arrest. An official of the federal Ministry of Industry and Trade is awaiting trial. According to the investigation, from 2016 to 2019, the former director of the department of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia received from the head of "Asia Forest" more 78 million rubles for patronage when receiving subsidies from the department.
