Prosecutor General's Office: Asia Forest illegally received more than a billion rubles in subsidies
The resolution to send the materials to the investigators to resolve the issue of criminal prosecution of the former first deputy chairman of the Khabarovsk Territory government Vasily Shikhalev and the head of the Asia Forest company Alexander Pudovkin was made by Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Igor Tkachev. It turned out that the company illegally chopped wood and received government subsidies.
According to the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office, from October 2013 of the year to September 2018, a former official who oversaw the implementation of priority investment projects in the development of forests in the Khabarovsk Territory assisted Asia Forest. That, despite the failure to fulfill obligations for the development of woodworking production in the Sunny District, received from the federal budget more than one billion rubles in the form of a subsidy. Also, the company of Alexander Pudovkina illegally cut down the forest for more than nine million rubles.
Investigators opened criminal cases on the facts of abuse of office, fraud and complicity in this. Due to the fact that the former first deputy chairman became a defendant in the criminal case in the government of the region searches were held.
