On Sakhalin, a sentence has come into force against the former mayor of Korsakov, Alexander Rudakov, for accepting a bribe on an especially large scale. The ex-official will spend eight years in a strict regime colony.

According to the press service of the regional prosecutor's office, as mayor, he received a bribe from an entrepreneur. For seven million rubles, he was supposed to provide the businessman with patronage, assist in obtaining government contracts. He managed to get about 500 thousand rubles out of the total amount. A criminal case was opened against him in 2017.

At first, the convict did not admit his guilt, saying that it was a provocation on the part of law enforcement agencies. But the state prosecution found convincing evidence of his guilt.

The court sentenced the ex-mayor to eight years in a strict regime colony with a fine of 35 million rubles. Also, for five years, he was banned from working in government and local government.

Rudakov's defense tried to appeal the decision, but the appellate court changed only the additional punishment. The rest of the sentence entered into legal force, the convict was taken into custody in the courtroom.
