A criminal case has been initiated against the mayor of the city of Birobidzhan

Today, the investigative committee of the Russian Federation for the Jewish Autonomous Region has detained the mayor of Birobidzhan, Andrei Parkhomenko.

The regional department of the TASS Investigative Committee reported that a criminal case was opened on the basis of a crime under Article 285 of the Criminal Code "Abuse of Official Powers." The mayor's adviser refused to comment on the situation to the EastRussia correspondent. Other employees of the mayor's office refer to the fact that they themselves learn about what is happening from the media.

Rana Andrei Parkhomenko was spotted in a high-profile case about the privatization of the Rodina cinema, the only one in the city. In the summer of 2014, the property of the cinema was arrested, and the investigative department initiated a criminal case of fraud - the alienation of a municipal institution at a lower price.

So in 2012, the cinema property, assigned to “Homeland”, was estimated at 17 million rubles, and it was decided to transfer it to another legal entity.

The cinema signed an agreement with Ekran LLC and established a new organization, which was named Kinomir LLC. Its authorized capital amounted to over 50 million rubles, including 17 million rubles - the share of the city. In 2013, the cinema was evaluated again. This time, the amount of the assessment was 8 million rubles.

In 2014, the Mayor’s Office of Birobidzhan coordinated the sale by the Rodina cinema of its share in the authorized capital for these 8 million rubles. Thus, Ekran LLC bought a cinema for this amount, remaining the only one in Kinomir LLC.

However, according to an expert report conducted by 9 June 2014, the value of the property of the Rodina cinema as of 2013 amounted to more than 51 million rubles.
