MOSCOW, April 28 (RAPSI) – Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has opened an administrative case against a former governor of the Irkutsk Region Sergey Levchenko over alleged law violations during construction of a new airport terminal in Irkutsk, according to the watchdog’s statement.

The former official could face a fine ranging from 20,000 to 50,000 rubles ($270 -670) or disqualification for up to 3 years, the statement reads.

In 2019, Levchenko, regional government and several organizations signed a contract that led to the restriction of access to the works on the realization of a terminal construction project.

Earlier, FAS found his actions violating the Law On Protection of Competition.
