ST. PETERSBURG, June 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Director of the Siberian chemical plant Vladimir Korotkevich and his two deputies were detained for taking a bribe, Rosatom spokesman Sergei Novikov told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The law enforcement agencies together with the security service of the Rosatom state corporation carried out an operation to detain Director of the Siberian chemical plant Vladimir Korotkevich and his two deputies for economy and logistics. They were detained for taking a bribe from a supplier of the enterprise,” Novikov said.
Rosatom explained that this is “a blatant violation of the standards of purchases in concluding contracts for the operation of the enterprise.”
“The incident is not linked with the specialization of the chemical plant that is uranium enrichment,” the Rosatom spokesman said.
The criminal case was opened under Article 204 of the Criminal Code for bribery, he said.
Rosatom is doing the consistent work to create a transparent system for comprehensive counteraction to corruption threats. “Since March 2009 at the initiative of internal supervising groups 208 chief executives of enterprises of the state corporation were brought to various types of responsibility and 68 top managers were dismissed,” the spokesman said earlier.
Rosatom is cooperating actively in this issue with the law enforcement agencies. So, 110 packages with criminal materials were submitted to the law enforcement agencies after internal investigations for the previous year alone.
“Therefore, we have been getting the recent reports about some criminal cases opened over misappropriation and corruption. We hope that the law enforcement agencies will take other decisions to open criminal cases after the examination of the criminal materials passed to them,” Novikov noted.
“We have a firm position that we will wage an open struggle against corruption and misappropriations in all ways even despite the damage to reputation,” he underlined.
