Deripaska's enterprise to pay $31.4m brought by Defense Ministry
The Aviakor plant owes an unearned advance to the agency.
The Moscow Arbitrazh Court backed the Ministry of Defense in a lawsuit with the Samara plant Aviakor (part of the Russian Machines holding of Oleg Deripaska). Now, the company has to pay more than 2.2 billion rubles ($31.4m) on the corresponding claim. This is stated in the resolution part of the court decision.
The Ministry of Defense applied to the court with a demand to terminate the contract with the plant on May 11, 2011. The recovered funds are an untimed advance paid to the enterprise as part of past cooperation. Aviakor did not agree with this position - the company filed a counterclaim on recovery on the amount of more than 435 million rubles ($6.2m) of debt and obligation to accept the acquired property, but the court rejected it.
In March, the Moscow Arbitrazh Court suspended the proceedings on another lawsuit filed by the Ministry of Defense against the Samara plant. The Ministry also requested a fine of about 153 million rubles for the same state contract from 2011, as well as interest for using the advance of more than 775 million rubles as a commercial loan.
We add that in July 2016, the Arbitrazh of the Samara region ordered the Aviakor plant to pay more than $ 2.9 million to the Ukrainian state corporation Antonov, which filed a lawsuit for the use of the trademark.
Aviakor is engaged in the construction of aircraft, major repairs of the Tu-154, as well as its technical maintenance, along with An-140, An-74.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
