The main person of interest is former Deputy Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Grigory Pirumov.
The Russian Prosecutor General's Office approved the indictment against former Deputy Minister of Culture of Russia Grigory Pirumov and other defendants in the case of embezzlement of state funds allocated for the restoration of cultural heritage sites. This was reported to the Moskva News Agency by a source in law enforcement agencies.
"Today, the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation approved the indictment against all the accused," the source said.
According to the source, on August 25, 2017, the criminal case will be sent to the Dorogomilovsky Court for consideration on the merits.
It is to be recalled that the key defendant in the case is the former Deputy Minister of Culture, Grigory Pirumov, who previously was taken into custody until September 15.
According to investigators, in 2012, the official created a criminal group, the participants of which entered into state contracts for the restoration of cultural heritage items at an inflated cost with the aim of stealing money. A criminal case was initiated under part 4 of Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code (Swindling committed by an organized group or on an especially large scale). All the defendants pleaded guilty.
