Will an advance in 9 billion rubles help to build the Vostochny cosmodrome in time

Deputy Director of Spetsstroy Alexander Mordovets, appointed head of the operational headquarters for the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome, told Gazeta.Ru that, on the one hand, due to the price increase, some of the contractors have already spent the money allocated earlier, and on the other, due to the lack of cheap loan builders and equipment suppliers cannot find new working capital.

To overcome the current situation, Spetsstroy and Roskosmos in the near future should send a request to the Russian government to allocate 9 billion rubles. in the form of advances. These funds have already been provided for the construction of the cosmodrome in the federal target program, but the need for them has arisen now, and not at the end of the year

“This will make it possible to order the necessary equipment and transfer money to contractors: they need to pay wages, purchase fuel and lubricants, and so on. In this case, we will all be on time and the total amount of the project will not change. Initially, 6,5 billion rubles are needed for ordering equipment, and 2,5 billion for payments to contractors. The total amount will be clear after the recalculation, which is now being made. ", - explained Alexander Mordovets.

As previously reported in EastRussia, last week it was also decided to form a document with proposals on repayment of debts to the enterprises of the Amur region - contractors at the construction of the spaceport Vostochny.

"This schedule will be agreed by all interested parties with the participation of the Commissioner for the Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs of the Amur Region. This report will be sent to the plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev ", - said Deputy Director of the Department of the Ministry of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East Alexander Krutikov.

According to the former deputy governor of the Amur Region government Konstantin Chmarov, the critical situation in the East was due to the fact that Spetsstroy of Russia, the general contractor, could not organize the work of subcontractors, which are involved more than 200. At the same time, the financing from Roskosmos-customer goes without interruption.

The main problem, in his opinion, lies in a too complicated scheme of financing: all payments from Spetsstroy go from Moscow to Khabarovsk to FSUE "Dalspetsstroy", and from there they are transferred to the cosmodrome and subcontractors.

Recall that in October 2014, the ex-head of Dalspetstroi, Yuri Khrizman, the Investigative Committee brought charges of embezzlement on a large scale committed by a group of people, and in November the former accountant of this enterprise, Vladimir Ashikhmin, was arrested.

The Accounts Chamber of Russia revealed overestimation of the cost when constructing the ground infrastructure of the Vostochny cosmodrome by 13 billion rubles. She also showed that by placing part of the funds on deposits of commercial banks, construction participants earned from 2012 in February to 2014 in February over 707,6 million rubles.
