Head of Dagestan says Republic’s Federal Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund totally embezzled
In Vladimir Vasiliev’s words, the Fund’s debts amount to 600 million rubles ($9.1 million).
In August, Magomed Suleymanov, head of FOMS in Dagestan, was arrested. He was accused of the creation of a criminal community and swindling. The damage from his actions amounts to 210 million rubles ($3.2 million).
“The head of the local FOMS is arrested. He is accused of serious crimes. FOMS is totally embezzled. We have debts amounting to 600 million rubles. I receive letters from Moscow, Rostov, Stavropol requesting to pay for services (mostly related to high technologies) that had been provided to Dagestan citizens. However, the region doesn’t have enough money to pay for that. All the work of the local FOMS had been focused on spending money for private purposes. There’s a huge slant to financing private medicine. We’re fixing it all, and trying to change the situation.” Head of Dagestan said.
Abdusamad Gamidov, acting PM of the Republic, his two assistants, Musa Musaev, Mayor of Makhachkala, and his assistant Kurban Kurbanov, Magomedrasul Gitinov, the city’s chief architect, and many other high-ranking officials have been arrested in Dagestan since the start of the year.
