CEO of Progress Rocket Space Centre dismissed from office by court decision
Aleksander Kirilin is suspected of abuse of authority.
The court in Samara satisfied the petition of the investigation to dismiss CEO of the Progress Rocket Space Centre (RSC) Aleksander Kirilin from the office. Also, the court issued a grant to the suspect in the amount of 11 thousand 160 rubles (~200 USD).
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, the investigation suspects Kirilin of abuse of authority. In particular, according to the materials of the case, in 2012-2016, the CEO of Progress made an agreement with an unnamed LLC for the supply of a hydraulic exhaust press at an inflated price “in order to obtain benefits and advantages.” The damage amounted to 2 million Euros – this money went to an intermediary firm, although the Center could have concluded the contract directly with the supplier.
The criminal case against Kirilin was initiated on February 13, as it follows from the materials of the regional department of the FSB. The CEO of the Rocket Space Center does not admit his guilt.
