The press service of the government of the Khabarovsk Territory has denied information that Governor Sergei Furgal was summoned to Moscow for interrogation. According to official information, the head of the region really went to the capital, but this is due to working meetings.

Earlier, local media reported that Furgal was urgently summoned to Moscow to testify about the situation at the Amurstal plant and the Torex company. The publication refers to a document in which it is reported that earlier Furgal became the guarantor of the plant to the bank.

The spokesman for the governor, Nadezhda Tomchenko, said that Furgal was not summoned to Moscow to testify. Since Saturday, the head of the region has been in Moscow, this is due to working meetings.

“The governor is not a witness, victim or accused in any case in order to testify,” said Nadezhda Tomchenko.

In November, law enforcement officers visited the Amurstal plant and seized documents there. According to preliminary data, this is due to tax evasion and illegal VAT refunds. Law enforcement officers also requested documents from the government of the region.

After that, banks stopped financing the enterprise. Regional authorities said they were preparing to create security fund for the factory. The fund will include objects and property, which is in the regional ownership, with a total value of about 130 billion rubles. Such a statement alerted the OFAS. The department believes that such a decision of the regional authorities violates antitrust laws, antitrust officials intend to give a warning to regional leaders.
