Leonid Gozman on White: “To the bribes he treated with contempt”

The arrest of Nikita Belykh, head of the Kirov region suspected of receiving a bribe of 400 thousand euros, was another milestone in a series of cases against the Russian regional leaders. And although the official representative of the Investigative Committee of Russia Vladimir Markin said the lack of “political color” of corruption crimes, with it agree not all.

So, Leonid Gozman, a politician, a former associate White “Union of right forces, now President of the Fund “Perspective” believes that the Governor of the Kirov region could hardly go to receive bribes:

– I knew him — not as Governor but as President of the party “Union of right forces,” we worked together and I was, shall we say, “number two” in the ATP. A bribe does not fit into the psychological picture of that person, absolutely. He’s rich, successful, to the bribes he always treated with contempt, so today’s news to me — information contrary to everything I know about Nikita Belykh. In addition, I for a penny, in no way believe that the Investigative Committee and its leaders: people, whose statements about what three times three is nine, I will double-check. This is my value judgment. So for myself I make a decision about that until compelling evidence against White, I would consider it a political provocation.

– Can the authorities had a grudge against Whites for something?

I know I can not, I did not interact with him as Governor do not know, with whom he had quarreled.
