The Zavlovsky district court against the head of Udmurtia, Alexander Solovyov (pictured), announced a guilty verdict, according to which he will spend the next ten years behind bars. In addition, he will pay a fine of 275 million rubles.

Also, the state will confiscate 5 million rubles from Solovyov and his share in the company, Udm-info reports.

Recall that Solovyov was detained in April 2017 on charges of accepting a bribe in the amount of 139 million rubles. He received money from businessmen who built bridges over the Kama and Bui. He also received a share in a commercial organization worth 2.7 million rubles and illegally received cadastral services of a property nature.

The charge demanded 13 years in prison for the former head of the region and a fine of 280 million rubles, as well as a three-year ban on holding leadership positions.

Let us note that at first the accused admitted guilt, but later stated that he had testified under pressure.

So far, the decision of the Zavyalovsky court has not come into legal force.
