Two of the defendants in the Dalspetsstroi case were transferred from under house arrest to SIZO

The Far Eastern District Military Court on Wednesday evening changed the measure of restraint to the two defendants in the Dalspetsstroi case (sometimes in the media it is mistakenly called "the case of embezzlement at the Vostochny cosmodrome"), having transferred from the house arrest to the SIZO the former head of the FSUE "GUSS" Dalspetsstroy "Under the Spetsstroy of Russia" (DSS, now GVSU No.6) by Yuri Khristian and the former organization's chief accountant, Vladimir Ashikhmin. This was reported to EastRussia by the court.

The reasons for the decision taken by the court, the motivation for the investigation's petition is not disclosed. According to Interfax, one of the reasons was the alleged threats of Yuri Khristian to one of the experts questioned in the case.

The process takes place in the closed mode, the case file contains 230 volumes. Yury Khrizman and Vladimir Ashikhmin are accused of abuse of authority (part 3 Art. 285 CC). According to the investigators, part of the advances on 11 government contracts during the construction of the Eastern General Contractor’s cosmodrome facilities were used for other purposes, which resulted in damage to 5,2 billion rubles. The decision to divert funds, the prosecution is convinced, was accepted and executed by the head of the construction company and the chief accountant. Mikhail Khrizman (the son of Yuri Khrizman) and former speaker of the Khabarovsk Territory Duma Viktor Chudov are also on the dock, and they are accused of embezzling (Article 160 of the Criminal Code) almost 106 mln. in 2006 – 2009, even before the construction of the cosmodrome.
