In late June 2019, the management of Development Corporation Joint Stock Company established in 2012 on the basis of Industrial Urals–Polar Urals Open Joint Stock Company was changed. This infamous corporation was repeatedly involved in corruption scandals. Notorious oiler and millionaire Sergei Maslov was its General Director in 2013–2016. In fall 2016, Maslov was arrested for embezzlements – but somehow, the court acquitted him. Immediately after the acquittal, he relocated abroad. The CrimeRussia reviewed the main ‘failures’ of the ‘unsinkable’ corporation, shady schemes pulled off by Maslov and his partners, and connections of the oligarch who has made enormous money on governmental projects. Surprisingly, but the information presented below hasn’t attracted the attention of the law enforcement authorities yet.
