On Sakhalin, two criminal cases of bribery were opened. The head of the regional branch of the PFR and an entrepreneur are in custody. At the same time, several more similar crimes are being investigated against the official.

According to the press service of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia for the Sakhalin Region, a 44-year-old entrepreneur who owns premises in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk leased it to the Pension Fund of Russia back in 2016. The businessman promised to transfer half of the income from the profit received from the lease of real estate to the head of the PFR department. For this, he had to provide patronage to the merchant.

After that, the businessman also bought non-residential premises in Kholmsk, which he also leased to the Kholmsk branch of the PFR. The rent was overpriced. From the total profit, the entrepreneur regularly gave a bribe to one of the leaders of the regional PFR. The amount of "remuneration" was more than 4,5 million rubles.

Both defendants were detained. The businessman had to be escorted from St. Petersburg, he was sent to house arrest. The official is in the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk pre-trial detention center.
