On October 2, 2020, “Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Crimea” Yuriy Gotsanyuk appointed Andrei Rostenko the “Deputy Minister of Culture” of the Russian illegal administration of Crimea. The infamous gangster from the criminal gangs “Greeks” and “Seylem”, Rostenko was the right hand of the “head of Crimea” Aksenov in plundering the Southern Coast of Crimea. It is clear from the appointment that the Kremlin “gave up” the lawlessness of collaborators from among the common criminal bandits and does not intend to observe any conventions.

This appointment is not the tool for the “grain position” to steal federal funds, because Moscow funding for the occupied Crimea has significantly decreased. This famous bandit, former “Mayor of Yalta” and “Assistant to the Head of Crimea on the Federal Target Program” was appointed to this post of “Deputy Minister of Culture” solely for the purpose of extracting additional income from fictitious Russian laws “on the ground”.

After all, exactly the “Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Crimea” deals with the definition of “cultural heritage zones” and “historical monuments”. Declaring the land plot as the “cultural heritage zone” or depriving it this status, when solving building issues, Crimean “officials” earn good money. “ARK” highlighted already the machinations of collaborator Rostenko with the types of “permitted use” of expensive Crimean lands, the “sheltering” some of these incomes from Aksenov, and the subsequent placement of the current “deputy minister of culture” in a pre-trial detention center as a result of his conflict with German Gref. However, Rostenko may have been able to keep part of the loot in the course of land fraud in Yalta in the “common fund”, which is controlled by his bandit colleague Igor Gutsalov. As is was already noted, the former “mayor” and prisoner Rostenko still has at his disposal the network of firms operating in the Ukrainian legal field, as well as outrageous “pro-Ukrainian lawyers” who are extremely likely working on laundering “Seylem” mafia funds both in Crimea and on mainland Ukraine.
