Russia: Russian Ex-Governor Given Eight Years In High-Profile Bribery Case

A Moscow Court has sentenced former Kirov Oblast Governor Nikita Belykh to eight years in prison following his conviction on bribery charges.

The court on February 1 also ordered Belykh to pay a 48.5 million ruble ($866,000) fine in the high-profile case. Belykh was also barred from holding public office for an additional three years. The time Belykh has served in custody since his arrest in July 2016 will be taken into consideration.

“The court has established that Belykh, as a government official, received a bribe for actions or the absence of actions benefitting the bribe-giver,” Judge Tatyana Vasyuchenko told the court.
