“According to the investigation, in 2016 Aleksandrov, in order to steal the property of PJSC Aeroflot, arranged for the said organization to conclude four agreements with the lawyers of Slivko and Kibets on the provision of legal assistance and representation of the airline’s interests in civil, arbitration and criminal cases”, - the statement said.
However, in reality, Aeroflot did not have any need to involve outside lawyers, since the legal department of the airline was engaged in solving legal issues. Meanwhile, on the basis of forged acts about legal services allegedly rendered to Aeroflot, Aleksandrov and Davydova illegally transferred 250.6 million rubles to the accounts of lawyers for three years.
When the scam with the withdrawal of money from Aeroflot accounts was opened, a criminal case was opened against all four suspects under Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (fraud on an especially large scale, committed as part of an organized group, using an official position). In October 2019, the suspects were arrested and their homes were searched.
Before joining Aeroflot, Aleksandrov worked in the Prosecutor's Office and the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation.
The investigation of the case has now been completed. Together with the approved indictment, the materials were transferred to the Gagarinsky District Court of Moscow for consideration on the merits. If the four are proven guilty, they face up to ten years in prison.
