17-million-ruble bonus for top-manager of defense enterprise
The criminal case is initiated against one of the managers of the defense industry enterprise.
The top-manager of a defense enterprise, which is located in the Moscow region, illegally fixed himself a bonus in excess of 17 million rubles. This was reported by the public Prosecutor of the Moscow region Alexey Zakharov.
Investigators believe that the suspect has received multi-million bonus as a golden parachute. The payment was disguised as a corporate pension.
The supervising department spokesman declined to name the top manager, as well as to disclose the title of the military-industrial complex enterprise (MIC).
Alexey Zakharov also said that only in 2016 the Moscow region Prosecutor's Office opened 24 criminal cases on the fact of violations in the sphere of defense industry.
After the arrests of ministers and billionaires, the business elite has understood – no one is invulnerable in Russia anymore. Recently industrial giant Power Machines Open Joint Stock Company has been shaken – the surprising arrest of its General Director by the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation amid the escalating international ‘turbine’ scandal has resulted in a criminal case and high-profile resignation.
The Moscow lawyer filed a lawsuit asking the Ministry to explain on what grounds parliamentarians are being paid colossal amounts, while the majority of Russian pensioners "drag out a half-subsistence existence."
