The governor of Mordovia took revenge on the deputy prosecutor
The Cheka-OGPU became aware of a gigantic scandal involving the governor and the security forces, which is being carefully hidden. There was an unprecedented case for Russia – the prosecutor of Mordovia Alexander Ivanov right at the meeting of the State Council accused the head of Mordovia of corruption Artem Zdunov. Zdunov became indignant and, right at the meeting, scolded the prosecutor like a schoolboy. And then he set the head of the local UFSB on him. The authorities of Mordovia carefully concealed the conflict between the head of the region and the prosecutor. During the 12th session of the State Assembly of Mordovia in June 2022, Acting Prosecutor Ivanov spoke, stating corruption factors in Zdunov’s actions. The head of the republic lives in the official residence free of charge and uses it for personal purposes. A republic with a public debt of more than 50 billion rubles.
rubles, with a budget deficit for medicines in the amount of 350 million rubles and housing needs for orphans in the amount of 1.5 billion rubles, cannot afford such a luxury for Artem Zdunov. He became indignant and scolded Ivanov as a boy. Accused of bias. None of the prosecutor’s arguments were taken into account. The business reputation of the department and the prosecutor were trampled in the presence of deputies. Having lost all dignity, the chairman of the State Assembly, Chibirkin, and the chief federal inspector, Sezganov, spoke out against Ivanov.
As the source said, immediately after the session, Zdunov instructed his subordinates and the head of the FSB, Lukyanov, to destroy the video recording of the session. The scandalous video disappeared from the archive of video broadcasts of the State Assembly of the Republic of Moldova. The prosecutor’s office also unsuccessfully hunted for the video fragment, and the FSB prevented them from doing so. At the request of Zdunov, Lukyanov, using his connections in the M Department of the FSB of the Russian Federation, did the governor a favor and put an end to Ivanov’s career growth – he was relieved of his post.
At the disposal of the Cheka-OGPU was a complete fragment of the video recording of the session.
Great hopes were pinned on Artem Zdunov in Mordovia. After sad times Nikolay Mershushkin and Vladimir Volkov, the appearance of the young and, as it seemed, promising Artem Zdunov was received with enthusiasm by people. But time, as they say, put everything in its place – and pretty quickly.
Today Mordovia is the same, if not more, impoverished and forgotten land, as in the days of the former leaders. In Saransk, they cannot even make the main city street – the Merkushkin family (Mordovdorstroy) continues to sit on road budgets, who generously paid Zdunov extra for the opportunity to continue “cutting” in the region.
But Zdunov, ranting about patriotism, managed to push amendments to regional legislation through the State Council, which allow him to rest at the budget expense in any country in the world, including states unfriendly to Russia. What he does with pleasure, while an ordinary resident of Mordovia barely receives 30 thousand rubles, and on vacation he can only go to the village to his grandmother along the dead roads.
