In Dagestan, began a large-scale campaign against corruption. This time the pass was the chief architect of Makhachkala Magomedrasul Gitinov.

Against Gitinov a criminal case was initiated under article 286 of the criminal code, part 3 (“the actions clearly beyond the scope of powers with causing of heavy consequences”). The point is the following: in February 2015 Gitinov, as the investigation established, made up of town-planning plan of land plot area of 600 square meters along the street Timirjazeva in violation of the boundaries of the land belonging to a local resident. On the basis of this management plan for the architectural and construction supervision of Makhachkala issued Granit, OOO permit for construction of flats. The land was laid the Foundation of the 12-storey building, this captured land is in private ownership. “In February, 2017 at the suit of a citizen, the court ordered the city administration at his own expense to demolish the unfinished building — the Foundation of 12-storey residential building. The cost of dismantling uncompleted the constructions on the land of a local resident and garbage collection is about four million rubles”, — stated in the message of the SU TFR of Dagestan.

That is, it becomes a “Leviathan” with a happy ending. In the film Director Andrei Zvyagintsev “little man” is deprived of both home and freedom, and his life because his land was needed close to the official for some purposes. And here justice has been served, the owner of the site has overcome the “Leviathan”. But not immediately — after two years. And only after in Dagestan changed the power.

3 October 2017, the President has appointed acting head of Dagestan of the former Deputy speaker of the state Duma Vladimir Vasiliev. He was succeeded by Ramazan Abdulatipov. With the arrival of the Varyag, equidistant from all of Dagestan’s ethnic clans, the more “strongman” in the Republic hoped to change for the better. Apparently, this began to change.

Earlier, on January 19, was arrested the mayor of Makhachkala, Musa Musayev. He is suspected of causing damage to the city amounting to more than 80 million rubles. According to the Investigative Committee of Russia, Musayev is suspected that in 2016 he gave the company a “joint construction-industrial complex” land area of 17 500 square meters, which was in the ownership of the Republic. The company paid for land of 1.1 million rubles, while its market value was exceeded 81 million. Investigators believe that Musayev had known the real price of the plot. Now the official is in custody.

Now in Dagestan at the invitation of Vladimir Vasiliev working group of experts of the Prosecutor General, interior Ministry and FSB, who arrived from Moscow to check the legality in the Republic. At the end of last year as a result of inspection by the Federal Antimonopoly service has uncovered numerous instances of corruption in city hall. So, it was found that only for three months, the mayor’s office illegally transferred for the construction of 12 plots. On 16 January the audit chamber of the Republic said that the administration of Makhachkala revealed violations worth over three billion rubles. At the same time officials ordered premiums by 165 million rubles.

Arrest Gitinov and Musaev has occurred within the announced Vasiliev of the campaign against corruption. Earlier in his resignation was sent to the head of the property relations of Ruslan Magomedov, a criminal investigation was initiated against the former Minister of education of the Republic of Sahabas Yadav. He is suspected of embezzlement during the construction of the school in Kaspiysk. This is probably only the beginning, and Dagestan in the near future expect even more interesting developments.
