Former Acting Head of RusAccreditation gets 4.5 years in jail for fraud with state contracts
Valery Ukrainsky has been found guilty of fraud he committed when entering into two state contracts with affiliates at an inflated price.
Valery Ukrainsky, the former Acting Head of RusAccreditation for Southern, North Caucasian and Crimean Federal Districts, has been found guilty of abusing his power, forgery and embezzlement.
The court ruled that in 2013-2014 Ukrainsky entered into two state contracts for vehicle maintenance of RusAccreditation by affiliated companies (Gukovstroy Company and Osadchenko Company) at deliberately inflated prices. In an open e-auction the official artificially restricted competition. Besides, the official committed forgery with records of procurement committee meetings, which had never actually been held, however the records were drafted and uploaded on the official site of state orders.
The offense has inflicted damages to the federal budget in the amount of over 4.1 million rubles, the investigators believe.
Leninsky district court in Rostov-on-Don sentenced Valery Ukrainsky to four years and six months in jail and a fine of 1.5 million rubles, having found the official guilty under part 1 of Article 285 of the Criminal Code (Abuse of Official Powers), part 2 of Article 292 of the Criminal Code (Official Forgery) and part 4 of Article 160 of the Criminal Code (Misappropriation or Embezzlement). Ukrainsky was also deprived of his right to take civil service posts for three years.
The verdict is yet to enter into force.
