MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) — Police have confiscated papers, 3 million rubles, antiques and jewelry from Yevgeniya Vasilyeva, the ex-chief of the Russian Defense Ministry’s property relations department, during a raid on her apartment, Vladimir Markin, the Russian Investigation Committee spokesperson, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Police are carrying a series of search raids as part of a criminal investigation into military property fraud in divisions controlled by the Oboronservis open joint-stock company.
