In addition, on April 30, 2021, the contractor was charged another fine in the amount of 100 thousand rubles. for improper fulfillment of obligations. The latter, according to the letter of demand for payment of the fine, is related to the validity period of the bank guarantee submitted by the executor.

In addition, the Ministry of Economic Development in December 2020 concluded an additional agreement with Voskhod, which shifted the completion date by 3.5 months. Initially, they were supposed to end on December 10, 2021; an additional agreement established the date March 31, 2022.
