In a conversation with RBC Titov noted that the Ministry of defence on the words trying to help resolve the situation. “The Ministry is working on optimization of funds of these enterprises. Even given instructions about the repayment of the debt. All within the law, but the entrepreneurs that does not help — means almost not come,” he said.

In this regard, the business Ombudsman has proposed Zelikova to study the issue “in light of the announced decisions on the settlement of debt of enterprises of the military-industrial complex at the state level.” In December, 2019 Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov told RBC that discussed debt restructuring defense industry for 15 years with the use of a five-year break with its low interest rate. We are talking about the debt for 300-350 billion rubles., the rest (400-450 billion) must be written off, said Borisov.

In 2019, Titov spoke to who was then the post of Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika with a request to begin testing the use of budget money on state contracts received by the enterprises subordinate Spetsstroy.

By this time debts of Spetsstroy reached 210 billion rubles, noted in the apparatus Titov. Prosecutors linked the liquidation of the Agency with embezzlement in the construction of important state objects, including the Vostochny cosmodrome. The Ministry of defence clarified that the Spetsstroy was eliminated due to poor organization of work with subcontractors.

The construction of the East’s first civilian spaceport on the territory of Russia, which began more than eight years ago and has not been completed so far, was one of the largest projects of Spetsstroy. Due to irregularities in its implementation have brought over hundreds of criminal cases. At the end of last year, President Vladimir Putin commented on the situation with the Eastern: “a Hundred times it was said: work transparently. Big money is allocated. The project is almost a national character. No! Steal hundreds of millions, hundreds of millions. Several dozen criminal cases have been initiated. Held the decisions of the courts, in prison people sit. No. Order so there is still failed to restore as it should”.

All of Spetsstroy to the elimination belonged to 19 companies (the head office and 18 Federal — GVSU), in which there were about 37.6 thousand people. After the reorganization of the Ministry of defense reallotted almost half of GVSU, who continued to engage in the construction of military facilities. The rest of the enterprises of Spetsstroy military handed over to other departments and state corporations.

At the end of 2019 Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the establishment of a Military construction company (VSK), which will be the successor of Spetsstroy and the only candidate for the development of 1 trillion rubles from the budget. “The main task — to bring military construction from the commercial sector, under the influence of any external circumstances or unfair competition was not to bankrupt the company or to impose on it some kind of charge”, — explained RBC is the meaning of this decision, the Deputy Minister of defence Timur Ivanov. He noted that the establishment of the FAC will allow you to get rid of extra contractors, bringing the volume of work performed by own forces of the Ministry, up to 60% and simplify bureaucratic procedures.
