Prosecutor General’s Office found multi-milliard debts on state contracts in three regions
Supervising department ordered governors of the Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk and Kurgan Regions to repay the debt quickly.
The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation revealed about 2.8 billion rubles ($48.000) of debts on state contracts in three regions of the Ural Federal District - the Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk and Kurgan regions.
According to the department’s address to governors - representations on urgent debt repayment are already brought to Evgeny Kuyvashev, Boris Dubrovsky and Alexey Kokorin. Moreover, according to the Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Yuri Ponomarev, it is necessary to make responsible the officials guilty of violation of the law.
In particular, in the Sverdlovsk Region the amount of debt exceeds 1.3 billion rubles ($22m). A number of state institutions of health care of area, and also regional budgetary institutions of the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Construction and Ministry of Social Policy also had debts. In the Chelyabinsk Region the debt is rather small — about 100 million rubles ($1.7m), while the amount of debts to entrepreneurs of the Kurgan Region exceeds 1.4 billion rubles ($24m).
As mass media reported in September, 2016, the total debt on the public and municipal contracts to business in Russia constituted 30.5 billion rubles ($600m).
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.
