The Coca-Cola Company is asking the military to pay for the supply of a drink


The Urals branch of Coca-Cola provided the Central Military District with a soda for a very serious amount. However, despite the fulfillment of obligations, payment was not followed.

The Department of Commerce of the Central Military District (in the documents the department still appears as Volga-Ural VO) ordered almost 7 thousand bottles of “pop” for military units of the Sverdlovsk region. However, for some reason the military did not pay for the drink.

Desperate to wait for the calculation, the regional branch of Coca-Cola sued negligent buyers in uniform.

“The branch of the Coca-Cola Company requires from the defendant 208 thousands of 718 rubles in arrears,” explained the press secretary of the Arbitration Court of the Sverdlovsk region Varzine Saryan. - The first meeting on this case is scheduled for October 6.

Meanwhile, in the Central Military District, such a debt is denied.

“We checked all our correspondence — we did not receive any definitions from the arbitral tribunal,” said Yaroslav Roshchupkin, head of the Information Response Team of the Central Military District. - In general, the Department of Commerce of the Central Military District is no longer part of our structures! So let them deal with the lawsuit themselves!

However, the Department of Trade of the Central Military District itself has a different opinion.

“We belong to the Ministry of Defense,” says Aiza Murtavina, an employee of the department. - Our main task is to provide military units of the Sverdlovsk region with food. I think in the near future the authorities will pay Coca-Cola.

However, in this situation, ordinary soldiers have already won. While the military and soda makers are sorting out their relationship in court, ordinary privates short the service for an effervescent bottle.
