Suppliers of building materials for Vostochniy convicted of stealing 11 million rubles
Representatives of companies artificially inflated materials’ prices for the construction of the cosmodrome.
The Blagoveshchensk City Court found the General Director of LLC StroiSnab-DV Kirentsov and the Chief of LLC Ideal supply department Kudlaeva guilty of swindling. The investigation proved that Kudlaeva and Kirentsov stole 11.6 million rubles, inflating prices to construction materials for the Vostochniy cosmodrome.
In January 2015, Kudlaeva conspired with her friend Kirentsov. She suggested to the General Director of StroiSnab-DV to steal 900 thousand rubles belonging to LLC Ideal. For that end she suggested to inflate the cost of the cable, which StroiSnab-DV had to supply to her company. The Head of the Ideal company, trusting Kudlaeva, signed the bill with inflated prices for the total sum of 13.4 million rubles. After that, the StroiSnab-DV received money. Kirentsov transferred specified earlier 900 thousand rubles to the account of Kudlaeva. In addition, the General Director of StroiSnab-DV embezzled and spent 11.6 million rubles, received on the fulfilment of the concluded contract.
As a result, the court sentenced previously convicted Kirentsov under Embezzlement and Swindling (part 3 of Art. 159 and part 4 of Art. 160 of the Criminal Code) to 7 years in a maximum regime penal colony and the recovery of damages. Kudlaeva was also convicted under article Swindling (part 3 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code) and sentenced to 3.5 years probation.
Former traffic cop Mikhail Saplinov was sentenced to life in prison for murdering two young women. The trial was held in the Belgorod region in February. The defendant pleaded guilty. However, he refused to share where he buried the victims…or could not do that. The 2015 trial of Vladimir Koen hailing from Vladivostok made the headlines. He was given a 9-year custodial sentence for murdering his ex-girlfriend that had gone missing in 2011. Her body has never been found. The CrimeRussia tells a story of two murder convicts who could be innocent.
