Top Russian Prisons Official Jailed For Nine Years For Embezzlement

A Moscow court has sentenced the former deputy chief of Russia’s Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) to nine years in prison for embezzlement.

Oleg Korshunov, who was responsible for the FSIN’s contractor services, was found guilty by a judge of misappropriating state funds allocated for the purchase of sugar and fuel, Russian media reported on March 11.

However, it is just one of six charges leveled by the state against Korshunov, who was arrested in September 2017, reportedly at a yacht club in Moscow.

He has also been charged with three crimes in connection with the misappropriation of 260 million rubles for shoes. He was sentenced last year to seven years in prison for those crimes, but the verdict has yet to enter into force.

Korshunov is also facing one charge of abuse of power in connection with the construction of a detention center in Crimea and one charge of bribery. Korshunov has said he is innocent on all counts.
