Aleksandr Albychev to replace deputy head of Federal Treasury arrested in May
Deputy Head of the Federal Treasury for IT Development Sergey Guralnikov is suspected of committing swindling on an especially large scale.
According to the order of Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, posted on the website of the Russian Government, he has appointed Aleksandr Albychev to the post of deputy head of the Federal Treasury.
Earlier, Aleksandr Albychev had headed the Department of Informatization of Tyumen region for 7 years and held various senior positions in Uralsvyazinform up until 2010.
To recall, his predecessor Sergey Guralnikov and his colleague – Head of the Information Systems Management Sergey Pavlov – were arrested in late May by the Khoroshevsky Court of Moscow.
The suspects are charged with Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code (Swindling committed by an organized company on an especially large scale). In particular, the investigators took interest in the government contracts worth 195 million rubles ($3.3 million), granted by the Federal Treasury to Sirius – company owned by Sergey Pavlov's brother – since 2011. They were related to the supply of computer hardware, equipment, and its technical support to the various departments of the Federal Treasury.
As previously reported by the CrimeRussia, all defendants in the criminal case are Krasnodar natives. They all met at the time when Sergey Guralnikov was the head of the local treasury. After Guralnikov was transferred to Moscow in 2010, Sergey Pavlov was transferred along with him. It was also when the aforementioned company controlled by his brother opened a branch office in the capital.
During another session on Alexey Ulyukaev's case on September 26, the prosecution submitted to the court a protocol of examination of the bribe received by the ex-official in the amount of 2 million dollars and a videotape of his visit to the office of Rosneft.

The trial of St. Petersburg oligarch Dmitry Mikhalchenko is about to start in October. Two weeks prior to its beginning, it became known that the family of Evgeny Murov, ex-Head of the Federal Protection Service of the Russian Federation, has acquired the lion’s share of Port Bronka assets. The CrimeRussia was figuring out whether this was a strategic move of the businessman in order to protect his ‘pet project’, or the price of silence of the high-ranked enforcement functionary?
