Chelyabinsk region: Contractor embezzled $344,000 from budget when repairing fire station
In the city of Ozersk, Chelyabinsk region, the contractor embezzled 20 million rubles from budget during the repair of a fire station.
According to the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office, in 2011, EMERCOM's Capital Construction Department and Mosinzhstroy OJSC signed a state contract, which provided for design and reconstruction works in the fire depot of Ozersk.
Later on, the management of this contract organization prepared a documentation, according to which the cost of works performed was 20 million rubles (344 thousand dollars). In reality, no works were implemented. However, the misleased customer paid the invoice.
A criminal case of swindling on an especially large scale (part 4 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code) was initiated following the prosecutor's investigation.
It is noteworthy that this is not the first such case in the Chelyabinsk region. In 2012, the Capital Construction Department of EMERCOM concluded a state contract with Montazhno-stroitelnoe upravlenie No. 174 LLC for the reconstruction of a fire station in Snezhinsk. By providing false documents, the company embezzled about 730 thousand rubles (12.5 thousand dollars).
