MOSCOW, October 3 (RAPSI) – Employees of two construction materials supplier companies for the Vostochny Cosmodrome have been found guilty of embezzling 12 million rubles ($190,000), RAPSI learned from the Blagoveshchensk City Court on Monday.
According to investigators, in January of 2015 head of the supply department of “Ideal” company Kudlayeva proposed CEO of “StroySnab-DV” company Kirentsov to embezzle 900,000 rubles ($14,000) belonging to “Ideal”.
