ICR to scrutinize Pochta Rossii after it leased 2 planes for $32m
The postal aviation is only 15% used to deliver mail.
ICR got interested in the activities of the aviation of the Post of Russia after it leased two planes for 2 billion rubles, reports Baza.
According to the project, the inspection began on July 18. Investigators are studying contracts between the Post of Russia and Aviastar-TU. The company rented two TU-204 postal aircrafts for more than a billion rubles each. Two weeks later, Pochta Rossii rented its own planes from Aviastar.
Investigators also found out that the postal aviation is only 15% used for mail delivery while more often the postal planes fulfill third-party orders and contracts.
According to experts, the cost of one kilogram of cargo for the Post of Russia is 970 rubles, while third-party companies get it for only 86 rubles. The estimated damage is 81 million rubles.
According to Baza, the scheme had been noticed before, and the current check is a second one.
Earlier it was reported that the ICR was conducting a check of the Post of Russia ex-general director, Dmitry Strashnov, who is believed to have committed fraud and abuse of authority. In 2014-2015, Strashnov paid for 270-million-ruble bonuses to his deputies and rewarded himself with 95 million rubles.
