"The issue of early release of Ulyukayev was resolved on April 27, but until the entry into force of the decision, he will remain in the colony", - said the agency's interlocutor.
He noted that the prosecutor's office and the administration of the colony "were not against the release of the minister on parole, they noted his good behavior". If the decision is not appealed, Ulyukayev will be able to leave the colony in mid-May. There is no official confirmation of this information.
The court convicted the former official in December 2017. He was sentenced to eight years in prison and a fine of 130 million rubles. Ulyukayev was found guilty of taking a bribe of $2 million. During the trial, the ex-minister repeatedly said that he was the victim of a provocation.
