The regional FSB does not disclose the names of the detainees, but earlier searches were carried out at the head of the Taganrog commercial firm Zvezda-Strela, 58, who cooperates with the Ministry of Defense Vladimir Maslensky. Local Media reportsthat the head of the military representation accredited by the Ministry of Defense Andrei Podlesny was also allegedly detained. Based on the materials of the Federal Security Service of the Rostov region, the military investigation department of the regional Investigative Committee initiated a criminal case under article 159 of the Criminal Code “Fraud”. According to the security forces, the defendants in the case, when executing the concluded state contracts, entered fictitious data into the calculations, thus stealing 15 million rubles. Investigators decide on the choice of a measure of restraint for the detainee. If the guilt of the suspects is proven, they face up to ten years in prison.
TASS, 11/25/2022, “The director of the Taganrog plant was arrested in the case of embezzlement of 15 million rubles”: The Oktyabrsky District Court of Rostov-on-Don arrested the director of Zvezda-Arrow JSC (Rostov Region, Taganrog) for two months in a criminal case of embezzlement of more than 15 million rubles from the state defense order. This was reported to TASS by a representative of the regional FSB of Russia.
“Yes, yesterday [был арест]the Oktyabrsky District Court of Rostov, for two months,” the agency’s interlocutor answered the relevant question. As a source in law enforcement agencies specified to TASS, Vladimir Maslensky is the director of the plant. – Inset K.ru
At the disposal of Life were photo of mansion interiors Maslensky: expensive furniture with gilded ornaments, a collection of sabers in a closet crowned with a wooden eagle, a huge box with elite alcohol for several million rubles, the general pretentious decoration of the building in the style of pre-revolutionary manor estates.
There are plump packs of five-thousandth banknotes in the walnut wood nightstands, expensive gifts and even their own “Monomakh’s hat” are laid out around the room. Bright lurid kitsch, as in the mansion of a gypsy baron.
“Ren TV”, 11/24/2022, “Stills from the “palace” of a suspect in the theft of 15 million from the state defense order”: According to a REN TV source, FSB officers came to search Maslensky’s house and found a real palace there. The sumptuous mansion of the head of the Star-Arrow is furnished in the royal style: an abundance of gold, a portrait of the owner on the wall, and even his own symbol of autocracy. […] On the wall in one of the rooms hangs a portrait of Maslensky in a tuxedo, on the table is a plate of half-eaten crabs.
Apparently, Maslensky spent a lot on his hobbies. He turned out to have a large collection of weapons: sabers and swords hang in a special display case, above which an eagle towers, there is also a safe with several guns and cartridges. […] In the courtyard of the Maslensky mansion there is a pond with goldfish and a swimming pool. — Inset K.ru
This is only part of the property of a businessman. Previously, he was credited with an even more luxurious mansion in Sochi.
The suspects are still charged with embezzlement of 15 million rubles, but this may be just the tip of the iceberg. For Maslensky’s enterprise, these are mere pennies. The net revenue of JSC Zvezda-Strela in 2021 showed a steady growth of 17.9%, amounting to 1.2 billion rubles. The company specializes in the production of wooden containers.
According to entries in business registers, 40% of the authorized capital of Zvezda-Strela JSC belongs to Teploservis LLC, which is again owned by Vladimir Maslensky. The rest belongs to the Ministry of Defense through JSC Tactical Missile Weapons Corporation (KTRV), one of the largest state-owned companies in the Russian military-industrial complex. It manufactures hypersonic weapons systems, naval weapons systems, air-to-surface and air-to-air missiles.
Money from fraud with the state defense order could be withdrawn immediately to the accounts of the Teploservice company.
According to media reports, Zvezda-Strela used funds received from the rocket corporation to build low-rise residential buildings in Taganrog. The apartments could then be sold to the mayor’s office as part of various social programs.
@mafia_7ru, 24.11.2022 16:24: Boris Obnosov, the chief rocket engineer and part-time head of Tactical Missiles Corporation JSC (KTRV), is at risk of being investigated. Yesterday, his main accomplice, the head of JSC Zvezda-Strela, Vladimir Maslensky, was detained. Together, these two comrades have been sawing state money for a long time.
In this scheme, Obnosov’s daughter hairdresser-make-up artist Olga Zorikova has also been working fruitfully for a long time, for which a lot of companies receiving state contracts from KTRV are registered. The most delicious is TRV-Engineering, which, by Obnosov’s decree, has been the “authorized organization” for the procurement of KTRV since 2012. Which legally gives her the right to receive contracts alone. Even despite the fact that in the same 2012 she supplied the defense industry with a bunch of counterfeit goods.
Companies associated with Maslensky and Obnosov are also involved in construction. Moreover, they take money from KTRV, build it, and then sell it to state structures, enriching themselves twice. Again, despite the fact that they don’t rent houses on time, they commit violations during construction and participate in cartel conspiracies. Apparently, the security forces decided to put an end to the affairs of these two. So the detention of Maslensky, who, by the way, has luxurious mansions with a swimming pool and royal decoration in the house, is a wake-up call for Boris Obnosov. — Inset K.ru
