MOSCOW, January 16, 22:22 /ITAR-TASS/. A deputy Moscow mayor in charge of transportation, who also heads the Russian capital’s transport and road infrastructure development department, Maxim Liksutov, has no assets abroad, the department said in a statement on Thursday.
In this way the department commented on opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s claims he posted in his blog on Thursday that Liksutov and his wife own foreign assets, although a federal law does not allow officials and their family members to have assets abroad.
“Liksutov fulfilled all legislative requirements to provide data on property in time,” the department said. “He has no violations.”
“Everything is legal, I guarantee,” the Kommersant daily quoted Liksutov as saying on Thursday.
The department refused to confirm or deny media reports that claimed Liksutov divorced his wife Tatyana last summer. “This is his personal business, the press service is not entitled to comment on the issue,” it said.
In 2012, Liksutov earned 270 million rubles ($8.1 million at current rates), becoming the richest official in the Moscow government.
