MOSCOW, May 3 (Itar-Tass) - The police have revealed a theft of budget funds at a defence enterprise. A suspect is former Director of the Raschet research enterprise, the police told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The economy security police division together with FSB and the police department at Moscow’s Southern District and with support from Rostechnologii’s security service revealed theft of big amount of money,” the police said.
Over 2008-2023, the enterprise’s director signed agreements with several organisations on mediator services to favour contracts on supplies of explosives.
