Office of Rosnano, a Russian state company established in 2007 to develop the nanoindustry in the country, has been searched by law-enforcement officers on Wednesday, Rambler News Service reports on the 16th of November.
Investigatory actions are conducted regarding one of Rosnano managers, whose name isn’t revealed. Allegedly, the police search might be connected with suspension of construction of “NT-Farma” pharmaceutical plant located in the Russian region of Yaroslavl.
