Head of the Azerbaijani community of Moscow Region Qalib Agayev has been arrested after a criminal case was instigated against him in January. The man accused of fraud is currently under house arrest, Life News reports.
According to the source, Agayev is accused of embezzlement of budget funds at the amount of 600 thousand rubles.
He received the funds in 2015 under the “Russia in the eyes of Turkish and Azerbaijani schoolchildren” grant program provided to the “Russian world” Fund of the Ministry of Education.
Agayev had to organize the visit of Azerbaijani and Turkish schoolchildren to Russia for a tour around the Golden Ring.
Presumably, the man used the large sum at his discretion.
