The deputy of the Nekrasovsky rural settlement in the Yaroslavl region, Alexander Bortnikov, became a defendant in a criminal case on the illegal production of narcotic drugs by a group of people by prior agreement.
It turns out that the 28-year-old, together with two accomplices, organized a drug laboratory for the production of mephedrone in a private house.
FSB officers detained Alexander Bortnikov and his accomplices on January 16th. They were caught right on the “production”. Investigators found 3 kilograms of a synthetic drug in the house. The defendants face up to 20 years in prison or even life imprisonment. Since Bortnikov was a member of United Russia, the regional branch of the party has already commented on the scandal. However, the village deputy has already been expelled from the party for discrediting him.
CRIMINAL TURN IN THE FAMILY OF DEPUTIES
Alexander Bortnikov was engaged not only in parliamentary activities. Officially, he was employed by the Elite Quarter real estate agency. Bortnikov’s father, Igor Bortnikov, has been working as a deputy of the Frunzensky district of Yaroslavl since 2012. In addition, Igor Bortnikov is the president of the city’s tennis club and the creator of the Animal Care Fund. Perhaps that is why, during the arrest, Alexander Bortnikov was embarrassed to give his middle name? The fact is that a high-profile scandal will certainly have a negative impact on his deputy father.
However, according to rumors, Igor Bortnikov himself also found himself in unpleasant stories. So, he is considered involved in the deception of a resident of Yaroslavl Alexander Lesnoy, who lost 3 million rubles. According to reports, being the head of Kumir LLC, Igor Bortnikov persuaded Alexander Lesnoy to sign an unfavorable contract for him. This matter has not yet been dealt with.
