In Moscow, siloviki have conducted a special operation on the detention of Chief of the Stolbovsky department of the Moscow region’s Chekhov, Mukhtar Dzharasov. According to MK, the lieutenant-colonel was detained at the exit of a Moscow restaurant, where he had allegedly received a bribe. As reported by Interfax, Dzharasov is suspected of Swindling.

There is no official confirmation of the information about the detention of Zakalyabin, but the sources of the publication believe that a criminal community may be involved.
