The South Sakhalin City Court scheduled a preliminary hearing in the second criminal case against the former governor of the Sakhalin Region, Alexander Khoroshavin, on June 4. The new case concerns bribes during the elections to the City Council of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

The former vice-mayor of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Alexey Leskin, who, according to the investigation, is considered one of the participants in the criminal group, will also appear before the court. Two more participants are put on the international wanted list.

According to investigators, from May to November 2014, a group led by Khoroshavin organized receiving bribes in the amount of two million to ten million rubles. Money was taken from citizens who wanted to participate in the elections of deputies of the City Duma of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. From them, members of the group received a total of over 100 million rubles.

Last year, 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.
