MOSCOW, July 31 - RAPSI. The Moscow Commercial Court has canceled upon the Interior Ministry's request a public police uniform production contract worth $122.4 million, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency on Tuesday.
The judgment was passed on July 30. It will enter into force in one month unless it is appealed.
The contract was concluded with the Moscow Region-based Shveyprom in March.
The company was the preferred bidder in an open electronic auction.
According to the Moscow News, Shveyprom was the only bidder, offering 3.94 billion rubles ($122.4 million) for the contract against the starting price of 3.96 billion rubles ($123 million).
Shveiprom was established in July 2011. Its charter capital is 100,000 rubles ($3,106).
The new uniform was shown to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in January 2012 when he served as president.
Interior Ministry Deputy Logistics Chief Ruslan Suleimanov said the uniform was developed by fashion designer Igor Chapurin and two consultants from the Moscow Film Studios.
The complete all-season police uniform set costs 30,000 rubles ($930). For officers serving in a harsh climate, the cost is 35,000 rubles ($1,090).
