MOSCOW, October 1 (Itar-Tass) - Police have exposed a theft of money belonging to the Rosneft oil company; a former affiliate director is among the suspects, the press service of the Interior Ministry's main department for economic security and combating corruption (GUEBiPK) told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"GUEBiPK agents exposed the illegal activity of former officials of Kabardino-Balkaria Fuel Company (KBTK), a Rosneft affiliate. The damage caused to the company is being ascertained," the press service said.
Documented evidence includes the theft of such Rosneft assets as the recreation center located in a preserve in the Elbrus region. Valery Kardanov, former director general of the affiliate, is among the suspects, police said.
Kardanov drew a fictitious contract of sale of company facilities before stepping down in late 2012. His agents presented it to the regional department of the Rosreestr Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre and Cartography for handling the transaction.
This property therefore passed into the ownership of third persons, the suspect's accomplices, the GUEBiPK said.
On top of that, four expensive cars were sold in another fraudulent scheme. "Police found that in September 2011, the wrongdoers forged protocols of Rosneft-KBTK meetings, according to which a consolidated decision was made to sell four vehicles in connection with their unsatisfactory working condition. As a result, the cars were sold to dummies at greatly understated prices, and the proceeds were misappropriated," a police official said.
Police opened two criminal cases over grand fraud.
When the probe began, Kardanov fled the investigators and was put on the international wanted list. The court sanctioned his arrest in absentia.
