MOSCOW, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Former Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov accused of negligence officially asked investigative bodies for amnesty, a source familiar with the situation told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
Last December, Serdyukov was officially charged with negligence. Detectives found that he gave oral instructions to his subordinates to build at the expense of the Defense Ministry’s budget a motor road from Krasa village in southern Russia’s Astrakhan Region to Shkolny Island, where non-profit partnership Zhitnoye is situated. Meanwhile, the former minister also instructed to develop Zhitnoye territory. Detectives believe that Serdyukov’s criminal action inflicted more than 56 million rubles (around $1.5 million) of damages to the state. The former defense minister did not plead guilty.
