123 million dollars were seized from detained MIA Colonel Zakharchenko during search
During the search in the apartment of Acting Head of the “T” Department at the MIA General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption Dmitry Zakharchenko, ICR and FSB officers found and seized 123 million dollars, equaling to about 8 billion rubles.
This has been told to RIA News by a source in the law enforcement bodies. The search in Zakharchenko's apartment was completed late at night. The investigators note that only the cash available in the apartment and about 10 million rubles at the workplace have been withdrawn.
The CrimeRussia's source believes that such a large amount of cash does not belong to Zakharchenko himself. Even a major bribe taker would not be able to collect such amount of money. The investigation will find out whose money it is and for what purpose it was collected.
Currently, it is actively seacrhing for other assets of the Acting Head of Department T of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption, who has been involved in the investigation of economic crimes in the fuel sector.
His predecessor on this post Denis Sugrobov and his deputy Boris Kolesnikov had earlier been detained in similar circumstances.
According to the CrimeRussia, the Acting Head of the Department T of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption is not the only defendant in the case. We can expect arrests of his accomplices in the near future.
It should be reminded that yesterday, after a special operation to detain the colonel held by FSB, during which law enforcement officers had to use physical force, a criminal case under Article 285 of the Russian Criminal Code (Abuse of Official Powers) was initiated against Zakharchenko.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
