KALININGRAD, March 4 (RIA Novosti) - A military court in Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad exclave ordered a border guard officer to pay a fine of 110,000 rubles (about $4,000) for running a prostitution business, an Investigative Committee spokesman said on Monday.
An ensign, whose name has not been disclosed, solicited customers for a prostitute who operated out of an apartment he had rented for her in return for a share of the “business.”
He was charged with organizing prostitution and running a brothel.
“In the course of a preliminary investigation, the ensign completely admitted his guilt,” the spokesman said, adding that the evidence against him was sufficient for a "guilty" verdict.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
