Bankruptcy Suits Filed Against Construction Firm Kosmos

Two companies have filed bankruptcy suits against Kosmos, one of the country's oldest construction firms.

Moskapstroi-Nedvizhimost, a Sistema subsidiary, said it paid Kosmos 100 million rubles ($2.7 million) last fall as part of a reconstruction project in central Moscow, but that work had still not begun, Vedomosti reported.

A Sistema employee said that the two sides had reached a settlement agreement and that the money would be returned. The second bankruptcy case, filed by Tsniis, a civil engineering company, is due to be heard April 4.

During Yury Luzhkov's tenure as Moscow mayor, Kosmos was one of the city's biggest contractors, specializing in transport infrastructure.

Kosmos has seen a steady decline in orders since Sergei Sobyanin was appointed mayor in 2010.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
