Depending on the role of each one they are charged with crimes under Part 1 of Article 286 (abuse of power) and Part 3 of Article 33, Part 1 of Article 286 of the RF Penal Code (complicity in abuse of power).
According to investigators, in June 2015, Pilipenko, aware issuing land use permission was beyond Belov’s responsibility, made sure that the latter made and signed a permit for two companies to use lands in the settlement of Vrangel for transportation and dumping of coal.
