Russian MP requests inquiry into alleged supplies for Ukrainian army
MOSCOW, March 3 (RAPSI) - State Duma member Roman Khudyakov has requested that Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office verify the allegations from a founder of AviaSnabServis who claims that fraud was involved in the supply of military equipment parts for the Ukrainian army, RIA Novosti reports Tuesday.
Last November, Izvestia reported that AviaSnabServis closed a deal with the Ukrainian Defense Ministry to provide steering rotors, blades and combined control units for military aircraft, all worth over 40 million rubles ($641,300).
Additionally, the company owners were reported to have earned some 163 million rubles ($2.6 mln) on contracts with the ministry.
Khudyakov has filed a request with the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Federal Security Service (FSB) to probe AviaSnabServis over this deal.
Khudyakov has received a letter from an AviaSnabServis founder who “insists that he had no part in the decisions of the general founding shareholders’ meeting”, according to the filing, addressed to First Deputy Prosecutor General Alexander Buksman.
The lawmaker explains that the letter includes independent investigation information and details of fraud committed by two other founders of the company who acted in violation of the company’s articles of association.
The parliament member wants the allegations verified and action taken.
