An NDT inspector with the Central Pipe Base (TsTB) of Surgutneftegaz complained to the management about failures in the quality control system, after which he was regularly deprived of wage bonuses.

The NDT inspector with the Central Pipe Base (TsTB) of Surgutneftegaz, Denis Pukhov, cut himself with a knife in the office of his boss, Alexander Zakharkin, Head of the trade union Profsvoboda, told Ura.ru.

According to the trade-union employee, Pukhov appealed to the authorities with complaints about failures in the quality control system at the place of work. After that, he was regularly deprived of bonus payments.

Zakharkin said that once, being in a state of moral tension, humiliation and resentment at the unjust reduction in wages and the obviously overestimated requirements for his work, Pukhov could not stand it and, when being  in the office of the TsTB Head, snatched a knife and cut his arm above the wrist. After that, the employee of the Surgutneftegaz TsTB was taken to hospital.

Ura.ru contacted Pukhov, who told the publication that because of the reduction in wages on artificial reasons, he does not have money even for bread. In addition, he said, he will have to sell the apartment, because he has no money to pay the mortgage.

“I took loans, borrowed money from my friends to feed my family somehow. Debts for utilities are so big that I am already sued,” said Pukhov.

The press service of Surgutneftegaz promised the publication to clarify the information and comment on it later.
