Ivan Popov is accused of embezzling 38 million rubles (~670.000 USD).

CEO of KrasAvia Ivan Popov was taken into custody by a court ruling for the appropriation of 38 million rubles. This was reported by Interfax with reference to the MIA’s Transport Management for the Siberian Federal District.

According to the investigation, from March 2015 to April 2016, the top manager signed fictitious acts on the performance of fictitious repair works. As a result, the above amount was illegally written off the company's accounts. The suspect used the money at his own discretion.

As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, Popov was detained on March 7, but the reasons were not mentioned. The press service of the company stressed that the case relates to the period of Popov's work in the Turukhan airlines. It is remarkable that his predecessor, Valery Mordan, was dismissed from the post of the company's CEO after being detained for bribe-taking.
