the Nizhniy Novgorod transport Office of Public Prosecutor left with the claim in court to Open Society the International airport Nizhni Novgorod . The Office of Public Prosecutor tries to force to provide a management of the aeroport company antiterrorist safety of the object entrusted to it, for example at the expense of installation of the metal detector and protection repair take-off - a landing strip. Representatives of the airport deny conclusions about potentially dangerous condition of the Nizhniy Novgorod airdrome and specify that in case of damages by major repairs the owner of a runway - that is the government of the Russian Federation should be engaged. As it became known yesterday, the statement of claim of transport Office of Public Prosecutor of the Nizhniy Novgorod region which has called into question safety of the local airport, is considered in court of Autofactory area of Nizhni Novgorod. Supervising department refers to infringement by a management of the aeroport company of some the federal aviation rules registered in the document Requirements of aviation safety to the airports .

By words and. The island of Nizhniy Novgorod transport public prosecutor Andrey Yudin, default of requirements of aviasafety can lead to the illegal actions attracting threat to health of citizens, and also to capture and aircraft stealing . The Office of Public Prosecutor asks court to oblige a management of the aeroport company to fulfil requirements of aviation rules till January, 1st, 2009.

according to Office of Public Prosecutor, at an input in an air terminal building the stationary metal detector is not filled, kontrolno - the airport check point is not provided by the automated monitoring systems, and on the area near the station there is no safety zone in width of 50 m (now this zone is used under a parking). One of the basic claims of transport Office of Public Prosecutor concerns conditions perimetrovogo protections with extent of 12,3 km, limiting take-off - a landing strip and having Cracks in which penetration of the person and animals " is possible;. In Office of Public Prosecutor have noticed that in the territory of the airdrome which has partially grown with trees and bushes, repeatedly found out kostrishcha, and once even have found a human corpse.

Open Society the International airport Nizhni Novgorod (GOD-SENDS) it is created in 2003 on the basis of the state enterprise based in 1992 - the bankrupt (airdrome Strigino operates since 1939). Is the spare airport of the Moscow aviaknot. Take-off - a landing strip, navigation and illumination systems belong to the state; 94,5 % of an authorised capital stock - to the government of the Nizhniy Novgorod region. Net profit in 2007 - 13,68 million rbl., a gain - 168,18 million rbl., total profit - 48,63 million rbl. the Volume of passenger transportations last year has exceeded 253 thousand persons.

the airport Management does not agree with conclusions of Office of Public Prosecutor: The aeroport company has the certificate of aviasafety of Federal agency of air transport (Rosaviation). According to the assistant to the general director of the airport Yury Evgrafova, a society is the tenant of federal property, and duties on protection capital repairs lie on FGUP GOD-SENDS which refers to shortage of the finance. Open Society of GOD-SENDS at own expense repeatedly spent protection operating repair, though it and not our duty. In 2007 we in the presence of the transport public prosecutor asked Rosimushchestvo zachest our expenditure on account of a rent, but this question cannot dare till now in Moscow. Now we not in a condition to carry out repair at own expense - mister Evgrafov has explained. As he said, the building of new perimetre provided by the federal target program of development of transport system for 2010-2012, will demand 600 million rbl.

Branch experts consider that means for demanded arrangement most likely will be found, for the attention to the question on a suspension of activity of the airport otherwise can be brought. the Office of Public Prosecutor spent similar checks in a number of the Russian regions. Claims to faulty protections and absence of control frameworks were the most frequent. When business reached real threat of a suspension of the airport, and such precedents already were, management digs up resources for elimination of lacks. In a case with the Nizhniy Novgorod airport to extreme measures, I believe, will not reach - the head of analytical service of agency " concludes; Aviaport Oleg Panteleev.
