Over $120 thousand stolen during repair of Internal Affairs building in Moscow
According to preliminary data, the fraudulent scheme involved both businessmen, who carried out the order, and employees of the department.
The criminal case of swindling was instituted on the theft of 7 million rubles (~122.000 USD) allocated for the repair of the building of the Main Directorate of Internal Security (GUSB) of the Russian MIA in Moscow. This was reported by Irina Volk, the official representative of the agency.
According to her, the criminal scheme was exposed in the course of the inspection conducted by the Main Directorate of the Internal Security of the MIA, on the basis of which the criminal case was initiated. Volk specified that the heads of several commercial organizations had submitted forged documents to the department about alleged work performed and received the payment.
Meanwhile, an Interfax source said that not only businessmen but also employees of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Remontno-stroitel'noye upravleniye MVD RF (Repair and Construction Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation), who signed the acts of the executed works, overestimating the prices for services, are the defendants of the case. The interlocutor of the publication also specified that he was talking about the repair works for the Moscow building of the abovementioned Directorate of the Russian MIA.
The air squadron number one in Russia ended up in the center of yet another scandal. It turned out that its special purpose aircraft are used, in addition to the national leaders, by outsiders. Uninvited passengers travel, stay in best hotels, and dine in deluxe restaurants at the budget expense. In fact, the discovery of stowaways on board is not the first scandal involving Russia Special Air Group that has been in distress for almost three years already. Why cannot the supreme FSB commanders using the official airplanes along with the Russian President sort out this mess?
Earlier, the management of the railway and the place of residence of its high-ranking employees were searched within the bribe case. Investigative actions against head of the railway Alexey Mironov were held in Moscow, where he was on a business trip.
