“The Federal Space Agency is not involved in financial operations of the leadership of RSC Energia, in particular, in obtaining and providing loans at the enterprise,” he said.
He noted that the state currently holds a 38.22% stake in the RSC Energia open joint-stock company. “According to the Russian government’s resolution of February 3, 2014, this stake within six months will be transferred to the registered capital of the JSC United Rocket and Space Corporation,” the official specified.
Earlier, spokesperson for Russia’s Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin said that the investigation department for the Central Federal District had opened a criminal case against RSC Energia President Vitaly Lopota. According to the investigators, in 2010, Lopota, who performed management functions in the corporation, gave instructions to the leadership of Energia’s subsidiary JSC Experimental Machine-Building Plant to provide loans to two companies, participating in the Sea Launch commercial project.
This has caused losses worth more than 41 million rubles ($1.14 million) to the state.
