Former deputy head of Rosprirodnadzor Oleg Mitvol pleaded guilty to embezzlement of 900 million rubles allocated for the construction of the metro in Krasnoyarsk.
The case will be considered in a special order. It has already been submitted to the Railway Court of the city.
Mitvol is accused of a crime under Part 4 of Article 159 (“Fraud on an especially large scale”) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. He faces up to ten years in prison.
