FSB searched St. Petersburg Metro
Within the framework of the operation on suspicion of taking bribes, one of the employees of the purchasing department was detained.
In St. Petersburg a series of searches in the St. Petersburg Metro State Unitary Enterprise and in the apartments of its employees were conducted. As part of the operation, FSB officers detained a member of the purchasing department, when receiving a bribe, in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region. The “remuneration" in the amount of 150 thousand rubles was offered to him by the company (name not confirmed), which claimed victory in the tender for carrying out repair work in one of the underground facilities.
According to Fontanka, the operation took place last week, but the information about it was disclosed only now. The searches also took place in the apartments of the procurement department Head, the company's management, as well as apartments of its intermediaries.
Inspections took place in connection with the recent scandal related to the procurement for the St. Petersburg’s metro. Three organizations claimed to conclude a major contract with the metro in the amount of 670 million rubles. As a result, only one of them the less respectable of all, the Metrohim company, was allowed for the supply of protective clothing. The firm was able to win the tender against such rivals as the garment factory Initiative, which specializes in the supply of special clothing, and the BTK group, owned by a well-known entrepreneur Taymuraz Bolloev, who is the exclusive supplier for the Ministry of Defence. The main advantage of the Metrohim company was that the St. Petersburg Metro State Unitary Enterprise was its founder. In addition, the SUE holds 2% of the Metrohim.
