The investigation established that Gashkina turned over a bottle of cognac and some chocolate to a worker of the Altai regional department of the Federal Execution of Sentences Service for arranging a meeting with her nephew, Yevgeny Metsker, kept in custody without a consent of the investigation bodies. The meeting was arranged at the detention center in the settlement of Kyzyl-Ozek of the Maiminsky district.
Yevgeny Metsker-Director of a meat enterprise in the Altai region, is under prosecution on charges of embezzling budgetary funds allocated in support of the development of entrepreneurship in the Altai region.
