Deputy head of Federal State Reserve Agency placed under house arrest in case of embezzlement in public procurement
The case materials say about the loss of $ 46,4 million allocated for the purchase of diesel fuel.
Moscow’s Basmanny Court sent deputy head of the Federal Agency State Reserves (Rosrezerv) Alexander Kiryukhin and head Rosrezerv’s oil products department Vadim Gavrilov under house arrest until June 20. The defendants are accused of embezzling 3 billion rubles ($ 46,4 million) during the execution of a state contract for the supply of diesel fuel, RIA Novosti reports.
The court also considers the investigation’s petition regarding the arrest of Sergey Ulanin, director of Rosrezerv’s Storage Issues Research Institute. According to the investigation, the persons of interest are guilty of swindling (para. 4 of Article 159 CCRF), and Kiryukhin was the organizer of the crime. In 2014, the defendants submitted a “knowingly false” act on the performance of work under the contract. All of the defendants plead innocent.
