Investigative Committee to allocate $19.2 thousand for publishing 38 pages of compilation of Bastrykin’s interviews
The format of the book is expected to be less than A5. The compilation will comprise all Bastrykin’s interviews with Rossiyskaya Gazeta over the past 10 years.
The Investigative Committee of Russia will allocate 1.3 million rubles ($19.2 thousand) for production and publishing all Bastrykin’s interviews with Rossiyskaya Gazeta over the past 10 years. The auction is announced on the public procurement website.
The book shall be entitled From the origins: 10 years at Investigative Committee in the interview with the country’s Chief Investigator. The winner of the auction will have to prepare two thousand compilations within two weeks after the deal. Each compilation will include only 38 pages of an A5 format.
The preparator will have to edit all Bastrykin’s interviews, select and retouch all photos that will be used as illustrations with accommodating the all-Union State Standard’s requirements. The text will be typed on a heavy stock white matte paper, and the books will be stitched with special threads. Under the contract, the compilation has to be prepared no later than December, 2018.
Previously it became known that rumors about the dissolution of the Investigative Committee of Russia and dismiss of Bastrykin were not confirmed. The Chairman of the Committee returned to work from vacation earlier than expected. The vacation was supposed to last till October, 2018. Nevertheless, sources familiar with the situation report that in the short term, the Prosecutor-General’s Office is likely to obtain additional powers to monitor the activities of the Investigative Committee.
In late June 2019, the management of Development Corporation Joint Stock Company established in 2012 on the basis of Industrial Urals–Polar Urals Open Joint Stock Company was changed. This infamous corporation was repeatedly involved in corruption scandals. Notorious oiler and millionaire Sergei Maslov was its General Director in 2013–2016. In fall 2016, Maslov was arrested for embezzlements – but somehow, the court acquitted him. Immediately after the acquittal, he relocated abroad. The CrimeRussia reviewed the main ‘failures’ of the ‘unsinkable’ corporation, shady schemes pulled off by Maslov and his partners, and connections of the oligarch who has made enormous money on governmental projects. Surprisingly, but the information presented below hasn’t attracted the attention of the law enforcement authorities yet.
