Several enterprises of the alcohol industry in Kabardino-Balkaria deliberately avoided paying the full amount of the excise tax, the Investigative Committee (ICR) said in a statement.

Against its manager, Ruslan Kankulov, a criminal case was initiated under part 2 of Art. 199 of the Criminal Code (Evasion of Payment of Taxes from the organization by including knowingly false information in the tax declaration committed in a particularly large amount).
As a result of the investigation, the state got back 2.9 billion rubles. At the same time, the accounts of the company were arrested. The arrest was also imposed on the private vehicle fleet of the enterprise manager. The case materials were sent to the court by investigators.
