Brother of Dagestan ex-head owes his freedom to World Championship
This is reported by the Telegram channel Karaulny’s source.
The brother of ex-President of Dagestan Radzhab Abdulatipov, who has been detained at the Sheremetyevo airport, is now at large, the Telegram channel Karaulny reports.
According to the channel’s source, the former head of the republic's Federal Migration Service Directorate, who had become a defendant in the corruption case, has been now released under travel restrictions.
Such a mild measure is due to the fact that the authorities do not want to advertise the scandalous case and hold high-profile detentions during the World Cup.
Radzhab Abdulatipov, who has been detained at the Sheremetyevo airport, is now at large. He is a defendant in a multi-episode case of corruption among the republic officials and is now under an undertaking not to leave. FSB operatives have prevented him from leaving the country. He owes his freedom to the World Cup, during which the authorities try to observe information silence.
Previously, the media reported on the detention of Abdulatipov while trying to leave Russia, however, his brother, former President of Dagestan Ramazan Abdulatipov said that this was a lie. The official said that his brother was “not like that.”
The ex-head of the republic added that his brother was accompanying him in the Altai Mountains.
Last week, the entire world has celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Internet. In the meantime, the Russian legislators have adopted new laws restricting the development of the Russian-speaking segment of the world wide web. The 'fake news' and 'internet insults' laws adopted under the pretext of protecting the society from manipulations and threat, including external ones, violate the Constitution and some federal laws in relation to the right to search for, obtain, and use information. Furthermore, the bill on ‘sovereign Internet’ passed in the first reading by the State Duma leads us directly to self-isolation.
