    What happened to all those billions that disappeared in the Pentagon? All under the carpet I guess. Mad

    This corruption happens in every country in the world with well documented cases for that,

    In reality this is a drop in the bucket that pales in comparison with what the oligarchs were stealing before the SMO

    That got cracked down on, and has eradicated the big corruption going on with Potyanin, Deripaska, Abramovich, Rotenberg, Prigozhin, Volozh - the list goes on and on of major cases of massive amounts of wealth hoarded into few hands that was kept in the west - and sanctions ended all that

    The fear of seizure put the oligarchs into Putin hands - now he can basically sway them in any direction , although they still wield great power individually, they are no longer the same threat they used to be

    And it’s a shame we don’t hear about these cases more , because it really demonstrates why Russia passed Germany and Japan so rapidly

    They said that the oligarch shadow economy was even bigger than the nominal Russian economy

    Meaning if most of that wealth has been repatriated in the form of stock transfers, that means the Russian economy has grown - not only because of the high output production (war), but also nationalization of the wealth of country

    For that you could write books on one of the greatest cases of eradication of corruption in our contemporary history

    More than 875 million rubles were stolen from the Ministry of Defense during the reconstruction of the main testing ground for military aircraft in Akhtubinsk, Baza reports.

    According to the publication, a criminal case of theft on government contracts against unidentified persons was opened by the Main Military Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia back in 2022, but it is still pending.

    In 2014, the Ministry of Defense allocated about 1.5 billion rubles for the reconstruction of the flight test center in Akhtubinsk, and the executor of the state order, FSUE Main Military Construction Directorate No. 14, through a chain of subcontractors, transferred more than 900 million to the accounts of the PromSpetsStroyGroup (PSSG) company.

    As the investigation found, PSSG management completed only no more than 5% of the planned work, after which it withdrew funds and bankrupted the company.


    This is not only corruption, but outright sabotage. Russia needs to make sure that those involved are not just punished, they need to be investigated too for possible collaboration with NATO handlers overseas. attack

    Love the posts about corruption. The Pentagon found a discrepancy of 41 billion dollars. 41 billion dollars were not accounted for, but they decided not to try to track down where it went.

    The Russian defence budget has been about 40-65 billion each year for the last 15-20 years, yet that money has not built carrier groups or space shuttles, it has done a great job of preparing Russian forces for war, they have excellent uniforms and gear, they have very good training and tactics, and while lacking in some areas their armed forces are vastly superior to any western country you care to name... it is even standing up to the might of all of HATO which has been spending a trillion a year for over a decade... three quarters of a trillion by the US alone and all of europe adding to more than 250 billion.

    Enormous volumes of money is changing hands every day and of course greedy people are everywhere... the difference is that the Russians find their bastards and prosecute them... the west pretends it does not exist because soon enough they will retire from the government or the military to join the civil sector and they can ride the gravy train for themselves...

    Pretty damn clear who is getting it right.

    When there is no corruption then corruption is rampant and out of control.

    In Russia, of course it exists but it is being hunted and found and exposed and dealt with.

    Which is why they have a strategic nuclear triad and strategic bombers and new 5th gen fighters in service and more being developed, and produce more tanks each year than most western countries have made in the last 10 years or are likely to ever make again...

    Let's start with a question, what is this thing even doing in ukro related thread?
    It is in no way even close connected, so it is a perfect example of a concern trolling.
    Being made - what a surprise - by a dedicated and devoted troll.

    The number of news about corruption in Russkie army is connected with the fact that they are fighting it, not the opposite.

    Shoigu & co weeding out loose ends. Like a script of a bad movie.

    The story of the arrest of the now former deputy minister, also former defense minister Timur Ivanov, and other involved persons continues to develop in an interesting way.

    So, by a coincidence worthy of the best synchronized swimmers, on the same day, July 8, two people close to ex-Deputy Minister Ivanov died at once: 52-year-old businessman Igor Kotelnikov and 61-year-old head of the State Expertise Department of the Ministry of Defense, Colonel General Magomed Khandayev.

    Kotelnikov died in Moscow pre-trial detention center No. 4 from “heart problems” and was a suspect in the Ivanov bribery case. According to investigators, the businessman was an intermediary who, in exchange for kickbacks, guaranteed lucrative contracts to entrepreneurs cooperating with the Ministry of Defense.

    Colonel General Khandayev, who previously held the post of general director of the Main Directorate of Special Construction and was directly subordinate to former Deputy Minister of Defense Timur Ivanov, was interrogated by the investigation as a witness in the case and was not in the pre-trial detention center. His cause of death has not been announced.

    Earlier news about death of lieutenant general Magomed Handaev:

    https://t.me/milinfolive/125682?single

    The head of the Department of State Expertise of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Magomed Khandayev, has died

    At the age of 62, the head of the State Expertise Directorate of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Magomed Khandayev, died. The head of the municipality of the Shamilsky district of Dagestan, Magomed Gasanov, announced this on Tuesday, July 9.

    Khandaev was born on May 14, 1963 in the village of Genta, Sovetsky district of the Republic of Dagestan. He was educated at the Samarkand Higher Military Automotive Command School, graduated from the highest academic courses of the Military Academy of the General Staff, the Russian Academy of Civil Service under the President of the Russian Federation and the Dagestan State Technical University.

    He served in military construction units and organizations of the Main Directorate of Special Construction, the Main Apartment and Operations Directorate of the Ministry of Defense.

    In June 2023, he was appointed head of the State Expertise Department.

    They are probably trying to cut the tail so the big fish are not caught.
    Russia really needs to improve security inside its prison system.

    From what I heard the first guy was in an overcrowded prison. Russia has a huge prison population. So prison conditions are not the best in the first place.

    This is "Epstein suicide" level of coincidence.

    I think Caveat is being obtuse but there is a point somewhere - someone is trying to prevent these people from speaking. Authorities will have to isolate the people. But as they say, money talks. And Russian's aren't impervious to selling out.
