MOSCOW, January 21 (RAPSI) – Ex-CEO of the Vladimir-Suzdal Museum Preserve Igor Konyshev has received a 5-year suspended sentence for embezzlement of about 3 million rubles ($50,000), the Investigative Committee’s press service reports.

Two other defendants, ex-deputy director of the museum Alexander Trushinsky and director of the commercial firms Museum Innovations Agency Sergey Kartintsev have been given 4-year and 3.5-year suspended terms respectively for aiding and abetting embezzlement of the state assets.

According to investigators, in the summer of 2016, Konyshev conspired with other defendants to steal the museum’s assets by signing a design contract with Kartintsev’s firm envisaging a knowingly overstated price of services totaling to 390,000 rubles. Under a similar scheme, later they embezzled over 2.6 million rubles allocated for the development of a new museum’s website.

During the investigation, the defendants pleaded guilty and reimbursed for damages, the statement reads.
