Human rights defenders found scheme of double purchases applied by Federal Penitentiary Service
Volgograd correctional colony bought live fish for 8 million rubles, and resold it for 10 million. As a result, the fish cost the state budget twice as much.
The Rus Sidyashaya (Imprisoned Rus’) Foundation found suspicious state contracts concluded by the correctional colony No. 26 and the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) in the Volgograd region.
IK-26 bought 130 tons of live fish for 8 million 899 thousand rubles ($115.400) on the state budget money. After analyzing the spheres of the colony's activity, human rights activists came to the conclusion that it is impossible to store such a volume of fish, besides, this IK-26 does not specialize in such conversion. It is also noted that over the past few years the IK has bought fish for the first time, which must be conversed independently.
According to another contract, the FSIN Administration purchased 100 tons of fish from the colony for 10 million rubles ($174.600). Money was also allocated from the state budget. It is assumed that the volume of fish was less due to the fact that it was already gutted and without heads, the author of the article points out. Nevertheless, the same fish cost the state 18 million rubles ($314.350).
Expert of Rus Sidyashaya Alexey Fedyarov believes that the colony could purchase 100 tons of frozen gutted fish, but to arrange it as if 130 tons of live fish were purchased. In this case, the fish did not actually get to the colony, but was immediately sent to the FSIN Administration. As a result, the colony earned a profit of 8 million.
In addition, Rus Sidyashaya found similar double purchases in other spheres, which confirms the suspicions of human rights activists.
Questionable purchases were made by Head of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in the Volgograd region Pavel Radchenko. He bought curd cheese for a colony in the Crimea, which significantly increased the cost of the contract. The same Crimean company sold semolina, rice, potatoes, flour to the FSIN for last three years. However, the fund expert notes that it is impossible to confirm whether the products came from the Crimea, or they were bought in their region, but they paid much more for them.
