Details of the case of Soslan Urumov, who was hiding from the FSB in the Donbass, were revealed

According to investigators, he stole millions and hired "dead souls"

On May 24, Soslan Urumov, executive director of the Batay Aircraft Repair Plant, which is part of PJSC Rostvertol, was detained in Moscow. Urumov, who has been hiding from law enforcement officers in the Donbas since November last year, is suspected of fraud in fulfilling a state defense order worth almost 4 million rubles.

Soslan Olegovich Urumov was born on November 7, 1979 in Nikolsky, Kazakh SSR. Before getting into the leadership of a defense enterprise, Urumov was the executive director of JSC Spetstechnika in the city of Ozerny, Tver Region. At one time, he also tried to organize his own business in Moscow, but to no avail.

When partial mobilization was announced in Russia, Urumov, according to investigators, decided to make money on a non-trivial scheme. Being one of the first officials at a defense industry enterprise, he decided to formally enroll those citizens who did not want to be drafted into Rostvertol for money, since a job in the defense industry guaranteed a reservation. Naturally, none of these citizens went to work.

Quite quickly, the scheme with "dead souls" was revealed by operatives, who at the same time discovered the facts of fraud on the implementation of state orders for the repair of military equipment, which took place even before the SVO. Urumov, according to the materials of the case, turned the maintenance of army helicopters into a personal feeder. Not fulfilling the proper repair obligations, through fraud and banal forgery, in the period from 2019 to 2020, he managed to rob the state of 3.8 million rubles. Money from the budget went directly into his pocket.

At the same time, Urumov’s criminal activity was rather banal, and when he received a notice about the initiation of a criminal case against him under Part 3 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (fraud using his official position), he, realizing that he could not get away, immediately disappeared and went not just anywhere, but to the Donbass. Later, the total number of criminal cases against Urumov grew to seven - all related to various episodes of fraud according to the schemes noted above.

Wandering around the settlements of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, Urumov hoped to merge with the general mass of the local population. He also hoped that Moscow and Rostov law enforcement officers would not look for him in these regions.

On the territory of the republics, Urumov, presumably, lived under a false name. He thoroughly erased information about himself in social networks, leaving practically no data about himself on the Internet. Somehow, he was lured to Moscow, where, upon arrival, FSB operatives were already waiting for him. Investigators have yet to find out what exactly the attacker was doing in the DPR and LPR for almost half a year.

The detainee was arrested in absentia by the Leninsky District Court of Rostov for two months. Now Urumov is in a pre-trial detention center in Moscow. In the near future it will be transported to the Rostov region. On the charges against him, he could face up to 6 years in prison.
