MOSCOW, 8 March. /TASS/. Russia’s Investigative Committee does not rule out the criminal case against Governor of the Sakhalin region Alexander Khoroshavin may have new episodes, the authority’s spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Sunday.
"Unfortunately, some regional leaders become famous only from criminal reports, and then immediately their allies and defenders tend to become oppressed politicians. However, in reality everything is trivial and sad."
"As for Governor Khoroshavin, like in other similar cases, here we see a purely corruption crime - a big bribe taken by an official. Over $5.5 million - in one episode only; and we have information it will not be the only episode," he said.
