MOSCOW, March 14 (RIA Novosti) - Military prosecutors are investigating a suspected embezzlement of 7 million rubles (about $230,000) at the Defense Ministry owned health resort in south Russia’s Stavropol region, the Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office said on Thursday.

A number of top managers at the Slavyanka sanitarium, including its director Magomed Magomedov, are suspected of appropriating the Defense Ministry’s funds by transferring them to third parties for the services that were never provided.

Magomedov is facing up to 10 years in prison if convicted of fraud.

This is the latest in a series of scandals at the Defense Ministry involving suspected fraud totaling over 13 billion rubles ($433 mln) from the illegal sale of ministry property involving the Oboronservis defense property services company.
