In the Russian army is stealing millions. So Nicholas Conan — Head of the 1st Research Institute of the Ministry of Defence together with 2 subordinates by fictitious and forged contracts with firms-night stole more than 23 million budget funds. Now an enterprising chief will hold 7 years in prison, where he will be quite time for that to comprehend their actions.
According to Konstantin Belyaev, corruption in the army's atrocities contribute omissions in the control and auditing work, the relaxation of discipline, the imperfect Russian legislation, and sometimes outright mistakes in selecting and following placement. In the past year the main military prosecutor's office denounced more than 300 military officials "forgetfulness." So they "forgot" to specify in their declarations of income and property. All these facts are related to the concealment of information about their own income.
For example, one of the managers control the main command of the Interior Ministry of explosives was so "forgetful", which is not specified in the declaration that his non-working spouses of membership is 11 Land plots, apartments in Moscow, several suburban buildings and a bank account the size of a 10 — of millions of rubles. In the current time of this story already involved law enforcement agencies.
In January of this year, Sergei Fridinskiy — Chief military Attorney, responding to questions about corruption in the military, admitted that the scale of the problem "at times hit." According to the prosecutor, made up memory that people have lost their sense of proportion and completely forgotten about conscience, and the amount of theft at times shocking. As an example, the prosecutor cited the case, which was brought against a group of officials of the Office of the municipal order of the Head of the Defense Ministry and the military-medical management. Representatives of the 2-these structural units of the Ministry of Defence signed a contract with a municipal commercial company for the purchase of medical equipment for an amount exceeding 26 million rubles. As it turned out in the next, the price of acquired medical equipment was overstated almost three times, and direct damage to the state by more than 17 million rubles. Funds managed to recover, but the military bureaucrats, who made the deal, you still have to answer to the law. With all of this data organization more than once checked supervisors who breach these overlooked. Apparently something with their aptitude or eyesight fails, or maybe a bad conscience, Sergei Fridinskiy.
The main hope with a fracture of the situation in the Ministry of Defense identified with the full transition to a system of non-cash payments in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the current year. The calculations will be carried out through the territorial monetary authorities (TFO) of the Ministry. This innovation came into force on 1 January 2011 and has touched all cash transactions of military units and formations of the Army and Navy and the TFO through the Ministry of Defence. In this regard, during the year will be eliminated all military monetary authorities, financial and economic management and service (from the level of military units to the military districts).
With the introduction of non-cash transactions will be carried out all the daily activities of the Army and Navy, including the purchase of arms and military equipment, its maintenance work, the purchase of spare parts, the organization of training, the purchase of food. Now all the military and civilian staff of the Ministry of Defence will be dealt with only by means of plastic cards at ATMs receiving salaries and allowances of foreign exchange. Specialists believe that the transition to a non-cash payments will minimize the manifestations of corruption and theft of budget funds. Besides occur significant savings from downsizing the military monetary authorities to reduce the time the money is transferred to the military budgets of the final beneficiaries, etc.
