Over 100 million were theft during construction of a bridge in Tyva.
Basing on the materials of the inspection conducted by the Abakan Transport Prosecutor's Office, a criminal case under Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Fraud) was opened. The investigation revealed that on 11 of January 2012, state contract between the Federal Railway Transport Agency (state contractor), the federal state unitary enterprise Edinaya Gruppa Zakazchika (building contractor) and the LLC Stroynovatsiya (general contractor) was made. The result of the joint work of these enterprises was expected to be development and construction of the railway, including a metal bridge over a canal of the Kazyr river.
The works were performed by the Dagestan OJSC Mostootryad-99 Company, the largest construction company of the country carrying construction of facilities including the Olympic site buildings. The LLC Stroynovatsiya accepted the bridge in the end of 2012.
The inspection has revealed that the construction was carried out only with two pillars of the bridge instead of nine. Thus, the amount spent on the construction of the bridge, was overstated by 100 712 899 rubles.
In 2006, the Federal Government approved the investment construction project, which was supposed to be realized with the help of state support at the expense of the Investment Fund of the Russian Federation.
The CJSC Tyvinskaya Energeticheskaya Promyshlennaya Corpuratsia ("Energy industryial corporation of Tyva") planed to build a 410 km of railway from Kyzyl-Kuragino to Elegest coalfield with possible extension to China. The project was estimated at 217 billion rubles. Commissioning was scheduled on 2018, but it,probably will be postponed due to difficulties with financing.
The special services believe that Russian Interior Ministry officials could have cooperated with the press to sell passport applications and border-crossing data of the two men suspected of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury.
