A Moscow court has sanctioned the arrest of a high-ranking Defense Ministry official who is suspected of having accepted millions of rubles in bribes, the Interfax news agency reported Tuesday.
Alexander Gorshkolepov, the deputy head of the ministry’s property relations department, stands accused of having taken bribes and received kickbacks amounting to some 16 million rubles ($259,000), according to an unnamed source quoted by Interfax.

The incident is the first major corruption scandal at the Defense Ministry since Sergei Shoigu was appointed as its head in late 2012. Shoigu was placed in the position after President Vladimir Putin dismissed then-Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, who had been at the heart of various corruption allegations also related to the ministry’s property department.
