Airborne forces left untouchable without 13 billion rubles
To the story of large-scale embezzlement not investigated during the construction of facilities at the Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School named after General of the Army V.F. Margelova, the military prosecutor’s office and State Duma deputies were involved. All of them demand that those responsible be immediately brought to justice. Moreover, there is no need to look for them especially, all the paths from theft lead to one person — Abdurakhmanov Anton Viktorovich, who at the time of the events was in charge of Trest Moselektrotyagstroy OJSC (Trest METS), which received 11 billion rubles for work at the school. After the scandal, Abdurakhmanov moved to the chair of the general director, and then the chairman of the Board of Directors of Bamstroyput OJSC, which is the general contractor for the construction of the Era technopolis in Anapa, is building a shooting club and a shop for the Kalashnikov concern, the Almaz-Anteya exhibition pavilion and demo centers for the United Shipbuilding Corporation and the Tactical Missiles Corporation.
Rucriminal.info has at its disposal the answer of the Acting Prosecutor of the Western Military District Labutin to the request of State Duma Deputy Alexander Sherin. The supervisory authority is perplexed why the investigation of the case of embezzlement during the construction of the school facilities has stalled, and on the many facts of other embezzlements, behind which Abdurakhmanov stands, unreasonable refusal orders are issued, which will certainly be canceled. Indeed, in 2013-14. FSUE "GVSU No. 14" (formerly FSUE "Spetsstroyengineering at Spetsstroy of Russia") signed government contracts with OJSC "Trust Moselektrotyagstroy" in the amount of more than 65 billion rubles for objects of the Airborne Forces of the Moscow region. As the military prosecutor’s office found out, under all contracts FSUE "GVSU 14" transferred to the settlement accounts of OJSC "METS" up to 80% of the total cost of the advance in the amount of 13 446 425 847.55 rubles. However, the undertaken obligations of OJSC "METS" under the leadership of Abdurakhmanov were not fulfilled.
"The military prosecutor’s office of the Western Military District has considered your appeal dated January 25, 2021 to provide information in a criminal case against the heads of ST-Logistic and OJSC Trest Moselektrotyagstroy, initiated by the investigative department of the Internal Affairs Directorate for CJSC Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Moscow on signs of a crime under Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. It was established that for the purpose of overhaul and construction of facilities for the needs of the Airborne Forces of the RF Armed Forces on the territory of the Western Military District, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation "Spetsstroyengineering under Spetsstroy Russia" FSUE "GVSU No. 14") in 2013-2015, 35 state contracts were concluded, including the state contract No. DG3-44 / 56-VG for the implementation of a full range of works on the design and construction of facilities for the military camp No. 1 (code 44/56) military unit 41450 (Ryazan). The contract price was 859,546,800 rubles.
To carry out work under these government contracts, the former management of FSUE GVSU No. 14 hired Trest Moselektrotyagstroy OJSC (hereinafter METS OJSC), which undertook obligations to build a significant number of facilities for the needs of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
Under all contracts, FSUE GVSU 14 transferred to the settlement accounts of OJSC METS up to 80% of the total cost of the advance in the amount of 13 446 425 847.55 rubles. However, the undertaken obligations of OJSC “METS” were not fulfilled.
On 02.04.2018, the Investigation Department of the Internal Affairs Directorate for CJSC Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Moscow opened a criminal case No. 1.18.0145.0007.000685 against the management of OJSC "METS" on the facts of embezzlement of funds under state contracts with FSUE "GVSU No. 14". Since June 2020, a preliminary investigation in this criminal case has been carried out in the Investigation Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, which is not supervised by the military prosecutor’s office of the Western Military District.
It was also established that in fulfillment of the obligations assumed under the state contract No. DGZ-44/56-VG, FSUE GVSU No. 14 under the subcontract contract No. DG3- 44/56-VG-236.1 of 06.12.2013 attracted OJSC “METS”. In accordance with this agreement, this company undertook to build two storage facilities for automobile equipment of military unit 41450.
In turn, OJSC “METS” attracted LLC “ST-Logistic” to carry out work on the construction of these facilities under contract 17-СМР / ГУС-15 dated April 13, 2013. At the same time, the work performed by ST-Logistic LLC on the fire-retardant coating of the storage facilities of the military unit 41450 does not correspond to the design and estimate documentation, the requirements of construction and other mandatory norms and rules, and is also not done in full.
The military prosecutor’s office of the Ryazan garrison sent the materials of the check on the theft of funds during the construction of storage facilities Nos. 1 and 2 for vehicles of military unit 41450 in the manner of paragraph 2 of part 2 of Article 37 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of the Russian Federation sent to the Investigation Department of the Internal Affairs Directorate for ZAO GU of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the city of Mo skve.
In 2019-2020 the said investigative body repeatedly issued orders refusing to initiate criminal proceedings against the management of OOO ST-Logistic, which were canceled by authorized officials of this investigative body. The final decision has not yet been made.
Taking into account the above, a copy of your appeal has been sent to the Moscow Prosecutor’s Office for permission in the part concerning the pre-investigation check against the management of ST-Logistic LLC.
