MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. Moscow’s Basmanny court ruled on Monday to place under house arrest a director general of a firm that was involved in embezzlement schemes of the Khrunichev Space Research & Production Center, a core company of Russia’s space industry.
"The court satisfied a motion of the investigator on placing Dmitry Dyakonov under house arrest until June 25," the court’s spokesperson, Anna Fadeyeva, told TASS.
Dyakonov, the head of Ecopravo firm that worked under a contract with the Khrunichev company, has been charged with embezzlement or misappropriation of funds carried out either by an organized group or in a large-scale amount.
According to media reports, Dyakonov signed a contract with Alexander Ostroverkh, a deputy of the then-head of the Khrunichev company, on providing auditing and legal services to it and received 22,000 euros per month plus 5% from the sums.
Between 2007 and 2014, Dyakonov provided Ostroverkh with service acceptance certificates that contained fraudulent information. These documents included reports on audits of the company between 2007 and 2011.
In total, Ecopravo has received more than 285 million rubles ($5.7 million at current exchange rate) from the Khrunichev center.
