In the Sakhalin region, the city court of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk has resumed hearings on the criminal case of the ex-governor of the region, Alexander Horoshavin, and the former vice-mayor of the regional capital, Alexei Leskin. They are accused of taking bribes for the promotion of the necessary candidates by the deputies of the City Duma of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. The trial was postponed due to Khoroshavin's illness.

According to "TVNZ”, The elections were held in 2014. At the trial, the bribe-paying deputies confirmed that they had donated money not to former officials, but to the electoral funds of the party.

Two candidates - Yuri Tsoi and Susanna Adrova - said that in every possible way they obstructed campaigning... For example, they were prevented from holding meetings with residents, and the results of the primaries were allegedly miscalculated for them. Susanna Adrova was never elected to the City Duma then, but now she works in the city parliament from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.

Also on videoconferencing, the defense demanded that Anatoly Makarov, the deputy head of the government under Khoroshavin, be questioned in court. Makarov himself is now in Georgia. But the court refused to provide his testimony.

Alexander Khoroshavin has been in prison since March 4, 2015. In a corruption case, he was sentenced to13 years in a strict regime colony and a fine of 500 million rubles... Alexey Leskin was in jail for 16 months, but now he is under house arrest and under recognizance not to leave.
