Heads of Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Makhachkala detained in Dagestan
The company’s building has been searched, and documents have been seized.
Director General of Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Makhachkala LLC Vladimir Anastasov and Head of the company’s Department of Subscriber Accounting and Reporting Zarina Abazova have been detained by siloviki. Prior to that, the Dagestani office of the company had been searched, and documents had been seized from the accounting office. This is reported by the regional media source Chernovik.
The publication’s source said that someone had warned Anastasov about the upcoming search, so the CEO did not show up for work. The detention took place later. Abazova was taken from Nalchik to Makhachkala. Earlier, she had been questioned in the Regional Department Of Internal Affairs in the Karabudakhkent district on the facts of illegal transfer of extra cubes of gas to Dagestan. The area is considered the most problematic for gas losses, the publication notes.
The detention is related to the investigation into the abduction and murder of Tatyana Sidorova, a deputy of the Ramenskoye District Legislature, and three members of her family, which occurred back in 2012.
