Defense Ministry Seeks to Reclaim Lost Property

MOSCOW, April 17 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Defense Ministry has been fighting since December to recover the real estate lost in a series of scams connected to the corrupt Oboronservis defense property services company, a ministry official who requested anonymity told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

His comments come in response to media reports saying that Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has sent a letter to Investigative Committee head Alexander Bastrykin asking that shares in a defense-related agency, Special Construction Projects Institute No. 31, be impounded.

Russia to Stick With An-70 Aircraft Project - Ambassador

KIEV, April 18 (RIA Novosti) - Russia will stick with its original agreement with Ukraine to jointly build the Antonov An-70 propfan tactical transport aircraft, Russian Ambassador to Ukraine Mikhail Zurabov said on Thursday, despite tensions between the two sides over the project's progress.

“A far as I am aware, the issue has not been taken off the agenda. Russian Defense Ministry representatives are planning to visit the Antonov aircraft company and discuss details of the project with their [Ukrainian] colleagues,” Zurabov said.

Medvedev Slams Defense Contract Placement Delays

MOSCOW, April 15 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev criticized on Monday the government’s failure to meet the deadline today for placing contracts for the State Defense Order this year.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who is in charge of the defense industry, said only 67.5 percent of government defense contracts have so far been concluded, up 3.2 percent on last year.

“Two-thirds is not a good result,” Medvedev said at a meeting with his deputy prime ministers.

“This means there are mistakes both in planning and in contract placement,” he said.
