The Prosecutor-General’s Office will summon national power utility UES of Russia CEO Anatoly Chubais within hours for questioning in connection with massive power outages that affected large areas in Moscow and its environs on Wednesday
“The investigation is expected to produce legal evaluation of the performance of each UES of Russia manager and of each official responsible for the stable supply of electricity to customers,” Prosecutor-General’s Office spokesperson Nataliya Vishnyakova said. The amount of the damage caused will be sized up, too. “It should be born in mind that the legal rights of a great number of people were grossly violated. The scale of the abuse is hard to estimate at this point, but it is obvious that it is significant. People’s lives and health were put at risk,” the Prosecutor-General’s Office spokesperson said. Vishnyakova recalled that the UES of Russia CEO did not deny his guilt and was prepared to bear responsibility. “We are aware that he is now focused on eliminating the effects of this accident and on restoring electric power supply. However, shortly after that he will be summoned to the Prosecutor-General’s office investigators for questioning.” The Prosecutor-General’s Office has opened a criminal case over massive electric power blackouts in Moscow and some other constituent territories of Russia under article 293 of the criminal code (negligence, punishable by a fine or arrest of up to three months) and article 201 (abuse of power, punishable by a fine or arrest of up to three years).
