By decision of the Lefortovo Court of Moscow, the former general director of the Russian Corporation for Communications, Yevgeny Melnik, was arrested on suspicion of abuse of power in the implementation of the state defense order.

"By the decision of the Lefortovsky District Court of Moscow dated August 09, 2022 in relation to Evgeny Nikolaevich Melnik, suspected of committing a crime under Part 1 of Art. 201.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, a preventive measure in the form of detention was chosen", - RBC quotes a message from the court.

Melnik will remain in custody until at least October 2.

The punishment under the article imputed to him is a fine of 1-3 million rubles with deprivation of the right to work in certain positions and engage in certain activities for ten years or imprisonment in a colony for a period of 4-8 years with a fine.

It's worth reminding that the company, which until 2013 was headed by Melnik, was established by the Russian government in 2007. This is a joint venture between Russian Technologies and a group of high-tech IT companies for the creation and production of trusted telecommunications equipment and communication systems. RKSS produced automated enterprise security management systems. Last year, she was declared bankrupt, bankruptcy proceedings were opened.
