Sergei Mitrokhin to President Medvedev: The Defence Ministry does not implement the anticorruption laws

Press Release,
September 29, 2010

Sergei Mitrokhin forwarded an appeal to President Dmitry Medvedev in connection with dismissal of General Gaidukov in connection with his fraud in the income statement.

YABLOKO’s leader asks the President to oblige the Ministry of Defense to fully comply with the requirements of Russia’s anti-corruption legislation. At present the Ministry's website provides no data on the income of its civil servants as required by law.

"I'm not surprised that the first civil servant to be sacked was from the Defense Ministry. This Ministry has taken steps targeted at concealing the incomes of its civil servants from the civil control ", runs Mitrokhin’s letter.

Mitrokhin also demands to oblige the Minister of Defense to immediately publish information on the incomes of civil servants and bring the published data in conformity with the presidential decrees.

It should be noted that President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree on dismissing General Gaidukov after an audit of his income statement. Gaidukov is also dismissed from the military service.

The audit of the income statement demonstrated that Gaidukov provided false information in his statement.

Last week the YABLOKO’s leader appealed to the head of the Presidential Administration Sergei Naryshkin and head of the Apparat of the Government Sergei Sobyanin asking them to initiate anti-corruption audits of three deputies of the State Duma - Boris Gryzlov (the United Russia faction), Ashot Yeghiazaryan (LDPR) and Sergei Levchenko ( the Communist Party).
