Former pilot of Belarus president sentenced to 7 years of imprisonment

The former pilot of the Belarusian president was sentenced to 7 years of imprisonment.

Vadim Melnik, a former pilot of the President of the Republic of Belarus, and later a former director of the Belarusian airline Transaviaexport, was sentenced by a court order to imprisonment for a term of 7 years, with confiscation of property.

According to data from news agency, Vadim Melnik was involved in large-scale fraud, in particular, as is known from the materials of the criminal case, the man tried to privatize the Belarusian aircraft operator Transaviaexport, which is state-owned, at the expense of a foreign company. For such actions, the ex-director of the Belarusian airline was supposed to get about 300 thousand dollars, but when transferring the first part of the money (30 thousand dollars - Ed.) The man was detained by law enforcement agencies.

Experts do not exclude that it is quite possible that there were other circumstances of the unfair management of the Transaviaesport airline, since over the past few years the airline's profit has significantly decreased.
