It should be remembered that already on Friday, Minister of Failway Transport Nikolai Aksenenko was accused of the non-proper use of funds. The Ministry of Railway Transport angrily denied this “rumour," and Aksenenko himself made a scandal while stating he would bring an action against mass media spreading slanderous information. However, the minister was speaking about other things. Aksenenko did not comment on the accusations, stressing the report about his resignation was wrong. Today, the Public Prosecutor General’s Office confirmed that the minister is being accused of exceeding his commission. The minister gave a written undertaking not to leave the place. Though Aksenenko who was invited to Public Prosecutor General’s Office on Friday to acquaint himself with the accusation, refused to sign the report.
