Prosecutor General orders Rosnano to deal with public procurement violations
The country’s main supervisory authority made a submission addressed to Anatoly Chubais demanding to eliminate everything that contradicts the legislation.
The Prosecutor General's Office revealed a number of irregularities when scrutinizing Rosnano. The inspection on the name of the company’s Chairman of the Board Anatoly Chubais was followed by a submission obliging Rosnano to eradicate all of the shortcomings identified and punish the responsible ones, said Kommersant.
For instance, it was found that the company would pay to contractors breaking the established payment terms. The delays ranged from two days to a year, which "gave rise to certain negative social and economic consequences they had to suffer," the file states. In addition, Rosnano consistently failed to meet the deadlines for posting the information in the public procurement system for quite a number of orders.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
