@bazabazon, 12/19/2022 10:12 am: A couple of bottles of French Chablis, shrimp and herring. Here is a check for 20,000 rubles, which caused a scandal between United Russia deputy Dmitry Pirog, as well as waiters and police officers at Pulkovo airport. The former WBO world boxing champion, and now the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Physical Culture and Sports, watched the Argentina-France final match in a restaurant with friends and then asked for the bill. When Pirog saw the check, he refused to pay it. For some reason, the deputy was rude to the arriving policemen. Therefore, he was eventually twisted and taken to the department. By the way, the domestic “Abrau-Durso” would cost Pirog five times cheaper. But for France, apparently, it is better to root with Chablis. — Inset K.ru

@porno_politika, 11/11/2022 11:20 am: In Krasnodar, the former director of the Fund for the Protection of Shareholders Yevgeny Shumeiko was detained. Investigators found that while the woman was in office, she was approached by one of the founders of an unnamed construction company. With a proposal to help his company get the work to complete one of the region’s problematic facilities.
We are talking about Yuri Kurdinsky, the founder of the ART and Grad companies, which were engaged in the completion of the Raduga residential complex in Krasnodar, as well as the Poseidon residential complex in Novorossiysk. Shumeiko instructed her cohabitant to convey to the merchant information that she was ready to cooperate for 41 million rubles. The entrepreneur fulfilled the terms of the transaction and in August 2021 the contract was concluded.
A criminal case was also initiated against the bribe-giver under the article “Commercial bribery on an especially large scale”. The entrepreneur was detained in August and is currently under house arrest, and the contracts for the completion of the problematic facility with him have been terminated. Given the 14 million in revenue and minus profit, ART risks repeating the fate of its predecessor, becoming bankrupt. Since 2019 (the year of establishment), the Chairman of the Board of the Fund for the Protection of Shareholders has been State Duma Deputy Dmitry Pirog. The investigator may have to find out his involvement in the story. — Inset K.ru
