A Russian corrupt official quits as Minister of Crimea

Native of Russia Andrey Grigorenko leaves the Ministry of Agriculture of Crimea after eight months in the Office.

Crimean “Premier” Sergey Aksenov explained this with Grigorenko’s transfer to Moscow.

“Agriculture Minister Andrey Grigorenko leaves the Republic of Crimea in connection with his transfer to an alternative working place in the capital of our motherland,” reported Aksenov on his page in Facebook.

Grigorenko was appointed by Aksenov to the post of Minister of Agriculture of Crimea on February 17 this year.

Grigorenko was incriminated with misappropriation during his time as Deputy Governor of the Tver region of Russia. According to numerous publications, in 2006 Grigorenko instructed, being a co-founder of one of the agricultural companies, the Director-General of the company to conclude an agreement on meat and milk production improvements. The work had not been done, and 420 thousand rubles paid were misappropriated by the official.
