MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. A Moscow court has sentenced a department boss from Oboronservis, a company affiliated to the Russian Defense Ministry, to six years in prison and a 900,000-ruble fine ($15,516) for embezzling over 230 million rubles ($3.965 million) from the Defense Ministry, the Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office said on Monday.

According to reports, Moscow’s Savelovsky District Court has wrapped up a criminal trial probing a financial scam with Defense Ministry’s funds earmarked for setting up a combat training center.
