MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) —— A criminal case over the sale of a military airfield for one million roubles was opened in Bryansk.
Western Military District prosecutors learned that Andrei Usok, the head of a branch of the Russian Defense Ministry’s 1155th Center, permitted a company to remove 4,000 concrete plates from the runway of the airfield of a former Air Force school for a bribe of one million rubles,” the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office said on Tuesday.
The damage exceeds 48 million rubles, and the airfield is out of operation, it said.
Usok was charged with embezzlement and taking of a bribe. The military prosecutor’s office of the Bryansk garrison supervises the investigation progress.
