The former head of the department of space-rocket corporation Energia named after S. Korolev will be brought to court in Moscow on charges of fraud in a particularly large amount. This was reported by the press service of the Russian Investigative Committee’s Main Investigative Directorate for the Moscow Region.
According to the investigation, the ex-head of the department demanded 24 million rubles from one of the subcontractors for the state contract with Roskosmos (Energia was a contractor) to pay for the work done, as well as for facilitating further cooperation with the enterprise.
