In the Amur Region, the Svobodnensky City Court sentenced Georgy Zonov to three years and six months in a penal colony. He served as the head of a separate unit of a subcontractor of Vostochny spaceport. The man was found guilty of attempted embezzlement.

According to the press service of the court, Zonov tried to steal metal structures and fittings from the construction site. In the future, he wanted to sell them as scrap metal. On his orders, the workers dismantled and removed materials worth more than 43 million rubles from the construction site. The attacker managed to hand over part of the stolen to scrap metal. Theft was revealed by FSB officers.

George Zonov pleaded guilty. Given that part of the stolen property was returned, the court recovered from the subcontractor uncompensated material damage in the amount of more than 28 million rubles. The court verdict has not entered into legal force.
