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.
