Khramov and Kabanov came under investigation in September 2021. The Crimean Department of the FSB of Russia opened a criminal case under Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
The damage to the budget from the actions of officials is estimated at 57.5 million rubles. We are talking about overestimating the cost of work during the implementation of the state contract in 2020, within the framework of which a water pipeline was built from the Ivanovsky water intake, due to which the deficit of the capital region of the peninsula was partially closed – Crimea suffered from drought in 2019 and 2020. Kabanov did not admit guilt, but paid off the damage to the budget.
Kabanov worked as Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea for almost three years, until September 2021. The official, in particular, oversaw the construction industry of the republic and the implementation of the federal target program (FTP) for the development of Crimea.
“MK in Crimea”, 09/27/2021, “Victory will be ours”: Evgeny Kabanov pleads not guilty to embezzlement of 57.5 million rubles”: Yevgeny Kabanov has held the position of Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Republic since November 27, 2018. Kabanov is the third vice-premier of Crimea, who oversees the construction, road infrastructure and the implementation of the federal target program, to which questions from law enforcement agencies arose. Prior to him, this position was Vitaly Nakhlupin, the investigation of which is still ongoing (he is charged with taking bribes, according to the latest estimates, for 16 million rubles). Early FTP supervised Oleg Kazurin, sentenced to 11.5 years in a strict regime colony on charges of money laundering, taking a bribe on an especially large scale. Yevgeny Kabanov also understood the danger of this sphere, calling the post of Deputy Prime Minister for the Federal Target Program a firing squad. — Inset K.ru
