Moscow police initiates case of embezzlement in preparation of military aircrafts tests
The contractor received almost $ 3,7 million for the work, which allegedly was not performed.
In Moscow, the MIA investigators initiated a criminal case regarding fraud during the construction of a test stand for the Il-76MD-90A and Il-78M-90A aircrafts in Ulyanovsk. The signs of crime were reported to the law enforcement agencies by the first vice-president of the OAK , Alexander Tulyakov, RBC reports.
According to the investigation, Aviastar-SP, which is part of the OAK, paid about 250 million rubles ($ 3,7 million) to RusTim, which undertook to build an industrial complex for testing IL-76 aircraft before November 30, 2017, but did not do so. In September 2018, the Moscow Commercial Court ruled to recover 247.7 million rubles and interest in the amount of 34.6 million rubles ($ 513,000) from the contractor. The criminal case is about the same amount of money. The perpetrators have not yet been established.
Six months ago, no one could predict the state of the MIA General Administration for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region by the time of the forthcoming elections. After the appointment of Moscow general Roman Plugin in charge of it, the St. Petersburg police has undergone significant changes. Major general of justice Oleg Antropov, Head of the Main Investigations Directorate, is ‘the last man standing’ from the old command of the MIA General Administration. Most probably, he is going to become the next victim of ‘janitor’ Plugin.
