Next 500 million rubles theft in Vostochniy cosmodrome construction revealed
The Blagoveshchensk Military Prosecutor's Office has identified the fact of new embezzlement on the construction of the Vostochniy cosmodrome. Prosecutors found that the general contractor of Spetsstroy Russia stole 500 million rubles by fraud.
The embezzlement was carried out in violation of the contractual relationship for the construction of a recycling complex at the launch site, the press service of the Main Military Prosecutor's Office reported.
According to the Prosecutor General's Office, due to criminal acts of the accused performance time limit of the cosmodrome construction was disrupted.
The Prosecutor General's Office has brought unscrupulous perpetrators to responsibility.
Recall that on October 2 representatives of supplier companies - the General Director of LLC StroiSnab-DV Kirentsov and the Procurement Manager of Ideal Kudlaev were sentenced for the theft of building materials in the amount of 11.6 million rubles.
About 20 criminal cases are being investigated on the facts of the thefts in the construction of the cosmodrome on charges of misappropriation of budget funds, embezzlement and swindling.
Major general Igor Vasiliev, Head of the Engineering Support Service of the Federal Protection Service (FPS), and lieutenant general Ulitin subordinate to him are currently in the middle of a scandal. However, it is unlikely that they lose their posts. Reportedly, the two generals are just the tip of the huge corruption iceberg in the law enforcement structures. This is not the first embezzlement episode in their careers.
