High-ranking officer arrested in St. Petersburg on suspicion of fraud

32
In St. Petersburg, a military court arrested Colonel Valery Konopatov, who holds the position of head of fuel and lubricants (POL) of the Western Military District, on suspicion of involvement in the theft of fuel on 87 million rubles, reports Fontanka.ru.


The Military Investigation Department of the ZVO opened a criminal case under article 159 (fraud) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. According to the investigation, Konopatov and several ordinary employees of the fuel and lubricants service carried out the theft from December 2011 to December 2012.

The scheme, presumably, was the following: fictitious documents were provided to one of the military units (base-storage) of fuel, according to which fuel was systematically obtained. In addition, according to documents provided by alleged attackers, fuel was stolen, which was allegedly intended for one of the military units of the Western Military District (ZVO).

The colonel refused to testify, referring to article 51 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, allowing not to testify against himself. By a court decision, he was sent to the Kresty pre-trial detention center for two months, although his lawyer applied for a preventive measure in the form of house arrest.

According to Kommersant, the investigative department of the ZVO appealed to the military court with a petition for the arrest of Valery Konopatov, believing that while at liberty, the suspect communicated with other persons involved in the case, gave instructions on the preparation of fictitious fuel transfer documents.

Presumably, a high-ranking officer could have an impact on witnesses and alleged accomplices. In particular, according to unofficial data, one of the defendants in the case tried to destroy documents that could be evidence of the charges in this criminal case.

The military investigative department of the ZVO newspaper confirmed the information about the initiation of a criminal case against a high-ranking officer, but refused to comment further.

        Serdyukov does not sleep with such people. He is just a colonel, so they will put him in prison.

          whose colonel he stole for hundreds of thousands of rubles in real time (he didn’t deserve to argue), and the minister and his wife, who stole billions, are freedom and peace.
          Well, where is the justice? There is none and there was none. And I think it will not

          I am not a supporter of the death penalty, you know, but it is possible for a criminal to create such conditions that he himself will seek death and that it will be a rope or gold chain is not important.

            Vadim! Being the commander of the APU group, he received about 40 liters a month. there are two cans of alcohol for MOT, that is, one of them diverged to the regiment’s fund, and to the division commander Fuel and lubricants so that it doesn’t vomit and the next time it’s not added to a gasoline product in a clean product .. But how gasoline and diesel fuel were written off through the same fuel and lubricant is a separate issue.
            By the way, domestic military equipment with a huge margin of safety painlessly endured alcohol hunger and worked like a clock.

      The beginning of the military activity of Suvorov refers to the Seven Years War 1756 — 1763. In the early years of the war, he was in the rear service with the rank of Chief Provincial Master, then Major and Prime Minister, where he became acquainted with the principles of organizing rear units and supplying the army.

    They always stole in the Army, but in such quantities? The simplest observation: If you stole once and "got through", then the second and again "got through", and if you see that they are stealing around, but there are no signs of reprisals against thieves (not only in the Army, but throughout Russia), then there is a feeling of euphoria from their own impunity. As a consequence, appetites also grow. And where are our "wonderful" law enforcement officers? The Accounts Chamber has reported on the amount of "violations for 2012 in the amount of more than 720 billion rubles"! So what? Where are the loud trials of thieves? No! Hence the conclusion for thieves of all stripes - "steal, but get lost." And the military prosecutor's office? A couple of years ago in the Far East, some captain wrote that soldiers were fed canned food under the guise of stew. (Remember the hype in the media?) Do you know how it ended? Neither the unit commander, nor the chief prod.part, nor the deputy. on the rear, as a result of the check (by the local military prosecutor's office, as well as by the Chief Prosecutor's Office who had "arrived" at the Ch.P. from Moscow), they did not "suffer", and this captain himself was found guilty! He was expelled from the Army in disgrace. They say "he snitched on himself." A country of crooked mirrors, but simply a madhouse! Therefore, I am very skeptical about this news: It seems that he just did not share.

    One and the same problem - fools, thieves and roads. Well, how much can you? Serdyuk and his women are resting, every other slum ... nn continues their work without a twinge of conscience. Cause? Again one and the same: Serdyuk rests in comfortable conditions, instead of sitting, lying UNDER bunks (on the bunks it is too luxurious for him). Impunity everywhere! And then, I do not believe that this colonel stole 87 million rubles and did not share with his superiors. And I do not believe that he stole ONLY 87 millionaires, it’s just that the investigators dug up ... Confiscation with the removal of the head of the criminal is the only way out!

    and if you see that they are stealing all around, but no signs of reprisals against thieves

    I completely agree. The point is that the more you grab, the easier it will be to excuse yourself, and if they give you something, then you will sit in royal conditions because there is something to buy them for. And even then say, well, think a year , two, three in a cell with a TV. But at the exit, here they are dear millions, billions, wait and do not go anywhere. Therefore, they seize with their mouths and sh-sing, there is no real punishment (capital punishment and confiscation), but in place of such the concept of how "the honor of an officer" has long since grown up.

    They caught it, neutralized it, and continue to steal.
    A grain of a grain and the whole country can be lost.
    According to Suvorovsky, according to Petrovsky decisive measures are needed, especially in the army.

    At the headquarters, fuel and lubricants always took a share of aviation units. Otherwise, fuel and lubricants were not given or were not written off. Plus, during audits (and they did the audits), they levied tribute to each part being checked. I myself am a former commander of the unit and have encountered this more than once. And how many of them were taken, arrested, tried - this cannot be eradicated !!! This is already in their blood !!!
