More than 500 managers of Russia's State and Municipal Unitary Enterprises illegally combine service and business
Such conclusions are a result of the investigation conducted by Transparency International.
Directors of state and municipal unitary enterprises (SUEs and MUEs) massively ignore the ban imposed by the Russian law on combining civil service with private businesses. This is reported by the organization Transparency International.
As the authors of the investigation found out, in 2017, 568 heads of SUEs and MUEs illegally engaged in business. 310 of such cases were confirmed by the Prosecutor General's Office. It is noteworthy that most of the officials – 368 – conducted business exactly in the sphere where the state enterprise headed by them was also specializing. The article also specifies that, as a rule, the businessmen started their business long before they got to the state service, which testifies to a poor quality of checks when applying for service.
As a result of the investigations, 154 officials lost their posts. Alexander Maslyakov, the director of FSUE MMTs Planeta KVN, Gleb Davydov, the interim director of FSUE TPO Kinostudia Soyuzmultfilm, and Andrey Kuznetsov, the CEO of the FSUE Gostinitsa Zolotoye Koltso (Golden Ring Hotel), and head of the Department of Presidential Affairs are among them.
