NOVO OGAREVO, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Damage from defense contract violations in Russia in 2014 has exceeded 20 billion rubles ($520 million), the Prosecutor General’s Office said on Monday after inspecting over 100 defense enterprises.
It exposed more than 1,000 violations of law, instituted disciplinary measures against 800 persons, and opened over 300 administrative and 131 criminal cases.
Penalties were imposed on such leading companies as the United Shipbuilding and United Aircraft Corporations, Helicopters of Russia, Sukhoi, and their subsidiaries, Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
He said the measures taken had helped not only to improve the quality of products but also reduce the cost of production by half and even more. Under seven arms supply contracts, the costs were cut by almost $52 million, he said.
