Rogozin sets up his own treasury
The contracts of Roscosmos will be supervised by Roscosmosbank.
Roskosmos State Corporation renamed the reorganized Fondservisbank to Roscosmosbank. The latter will supervise the contracts and agreements of the enterprises of the rocket and space industry and perform the functions of the treasury. Dmitry Rogozin, Roscosmos CEO, was elected chairman of the board of directors, the state corporation said.
The board of directors decided to rename Fondservicebank as early as November 2018, and on April 12, at Cosmonautics Day, Rogozin approved the relevant document. According to TASS, all 100% of the shares (more than 11.3 trillion of securities) of the bank belong to Roscosmos.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
