Based on examination materials of military prosecutors the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Primorye Territory has opened a criminal case under article Swindling (part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code). In addition, measures are being taken to provide compensation for damage to the state.
