Anatoly Serdyukov not allowed to approach Russian President at MAKS-2017
The former Minister of Defense, and now the head of the Russian Helicopters board of directors wanted to personally present the medical helicopter to the President.
The former Head of the Russian Defense Ministry, Anatoly Serdyukov, was not allowed to approach Russian President Vladimir Putin at the opening of the MAKS-2017 airshow. The meeting of the Russian leader with the former Minister was to take place at the stand of the company Russian Helicopters, which board of directors Serdyukov joined.
The ex-Minister tried to approach Putin when he came to the stand of the Russian Helicopters, but the President's protection ousted him, the Dozhd TV channel reported.
"Serdyukov was trying to come closer to the President, to present him personally with a medical helicopter, which Putin had just inspected, but the meeting did not happen. The President immediately left after inspecting the helicopter. Serdyukov did not even shake hands with Putin," the Dozhd correspondent reported.
The journalist also noted that the meeting was to be the first after all criminal cases and the loss of President's confidence. But this did not happen, even the handshake between the President and the former subordinate did not take place.
Former Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov headed the board of directors of Russian Helicopters after the corruption scandal of Oboronservice.
Anatoly Serdyukov served as the Head of the Russian Defense Ministry for more than five years. The Minister was forced to leave in connection with a large-scale affair of corruption. The main defendant of the Oboronservis case was Head of the Property Relations Department Evgenia Vasilieva, who was in close relations with Serdyukov. The ex-Minister himself was also a figurant of the criminal case, but fell under amnesty.

The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
