VLADIVOSTOK, August 18, /ITAR-TASS/. Sergey Ruditsa, Mayor of Ussuriisk, has resigned on health grounds, thereby terminating his powers ahead of time, the press service of the Ussuriisk city district administration reported on Monday.
Rakhim Syachenkov, First Vice-Mayor, has been appointed to be acting Head of the City Administration.
In mid-April this year, Sergey Ruditsa was temporarily barred from performing his mayoral duties by a decision of the Leninsky District Court of Vladivostok after investigation bodies had instituted criminal proceedings against him under Penal Code article concerning "negligence".
According to investigators' avenue of inquiry, Ruditsa had unlawfully endorsed deeds of approval of work ostensibly done by the EnergoTech Company in 2011 and 2012. This became a ground for an unfounded transfer of 31 million roubles to the company from the municipal budget. Subsequently the contracts were abrogated. However, in view of the fact that those contracts were signed by the mayor, the money paid was not brought back to the budget.
