FSB seizes documents from Rostov-on-Don circus
According to preliminary information, the law enforcers are checking information about possible embezzlements in the circus administration.
Officers of the FSB Directorate in the Rostov region have seized financial documents from the Rostov State Circus on suspicion of theft of funds. This is reported by Delovoy kvartal-Rostov.
It is reported that the law enforcers are checking information about possible embezzlements by the circus administration employees in the amount of 1.7 million rubles ($30,192). According to preliminary information, the money was withdrawn under fictitious contracts for the provision of agency services in the amount of 15% of the box office and other ticket operations.
Director of the circus, Dmitry Reznichenko, has confirmed the seizure of documents to Bloknot-Rostov, however he linked the siloviki’s actions to his disagreements with the leadership of the Russian State Circus.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
