At the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, the competent authorities of the Federal Republic of Germany extradited Osman Makhachev and Gocha Pipiya to Russia.

Makhachev is accused of having committed a crime provided for by Article 290 (6) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (taking a bribe on an especially large scale).

According to the investigation, Makhachev, using his position and contacts, for 30 million rubles, agreed to provide assistance in the appointment of a citizen to the post of Head of the municipal entity “Dokuzparinskiy District” of the Republic of Dagestan. In August 2017, Makhachev received 23 million rubles from an intermediary; the rest of the bribe had not been received for reasons beyond his control.

Pipiya is accused of stealing (Article 158 (2) (c) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

According to the investigation, in July 2017, in the city of Svetlogorsk of the Kaliningrad Region, Pipiya stole money from the cash desk of a jewelry store, as well as personal belongings of the owner.

Since Makhachev and Pipiya absconded from the law enforcement authorities, at the instruction of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, they were placed on the wanted list.

In different time, both of them were detained in the territory of Germany and, after that, the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation sent relevant requests to the competent authorities of that state.

Owing to the organized close cooperation of the competent authorities of both countries, it was possible to attain the positive decisions on extradition of the accused to Russia.

Today, accompanied by officers of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia and the Russian bureau of Interpol, Osman Makhachev and Gocha Pipiya will be delivered from Frankfurt am Main to Moscow.
