Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev reprimanded the Deputy head of Rosaviation Oleg Storchevoy. The corresponding decree published on the official portal of legal information.

The document notes that the reprimand imposed for improper performance of official duties.

Reasons not specified in the document. However, later in a press-service of the government, RIA Novosti explained that the reason for the sanction was the situation with the airline «VIM-Avia».

In autumn, the company ceased operations due to financial problems. Its air operator certificate of the carrier is suspended, and accounts payable, according to the Federal air transport Agency, is about 10 billion rubles.

In late September, President Vladimir Putin declared incomplete office conformity to the head of Ministry of transport Maxim Sokolov — also because of «VIM-Avia».
