The former mayor of Vladivostok Igor Pushkarev was transferred to a maximum security colony in another region at the request of the prosecutor general. The supervisory authority found relief in keeping a prisoner in the territory of the Primorsky Territory.

According to the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office, initially, sending Pushkarev to a colony located in Spassk-Dalniy, the FSIN did not take into account that the city-forming enterprise Spasskcement, controlled by the convict, is located in this city. Relatives of many colony employees are employed at this enterprise and are in a dependent position.

In addition, it was established that the brother of the former mayor of Vladivostok, Andrei Pushkarev, who was temporarily prohibited by the decision of the court from managing commercial organizations, was employed by Vostokcement LLC, where he formally held the position of consultant. At the same time, according to the Prosecutor General’s Office, he continued to resolve key economic and legal issues in it, and influence his management.

According to the results of the audit, five officials of the State Penitentiary Service of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service in the Primorsky Territory brought to disciplinary action. Igor Pushkarev was transferred to a strict regime colony in another region, and his brother was not credited with six months of punishment in the form of a ban on managing commercial organizations. He was fired from the enterprise.

In 2019, Igor and Andrey Pushkarev were found guilty in excess of official powers and bribery on an especially large scale. The ex-head of Vladivostok was assigned 15 years in prison and a fine of 500 million rubles, his brother - eight years probation with a probationary period of five years and fines of 500 thousand rubles.
