The prosecutor's office of the Sakhalin region approved the indictment in the criminal case of the former governor of the region, Alexander Khoroshavin. He is accused of taking bribes and preparing to receive them.

According to investigators, from May to November 2014, a group led by Khoroshavin organized bribes ranging from two million to ten million rubles from citizens who wanted to participate in the election of deputies of the city council of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. From them, members of the group received a total of over 100 million rubles.

According to the press service of the Prosecutor General’s Office, former deputy mayor of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Aleksey Leskin will also appear in court along with Khoroshavin. He was also a member of a group receiving bribes. The materials of the criminal case will be sent for consideration on the merits to the South Sakhalin City Court.

Earlier, the court sentenced another accomplice Khoroshavin - the former head of the secretary of the governor Vladimir Gorbachev to seven years and ten months in prison with a probationary period of five years. Two more members of the criminal group are put on the international wanted list.

Last year, Alexander Khoroshavin was sentenced to 13 years of high security and a fine of 500 million rubles for receiving multimillion-dollar bribes. In July him transported to the pre-trial detention center of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.
