Chief of penal colony detained for bribery in Kaluga region
In Medyn, FSB operatives have detained Colonel of Internal Service Nikolay Tyapkin for bribe-taking.
The colonel holds the position of chief of maximum-security penal colony No. 4. As Kaluga media report, the operation for his detention was held on December 19, and the following day a preventive measure was selected for the detainee.
The court left the head of the colony at large, placing him under house arrest. The regional law enforcement agencies do not comment on the detention of the FPSR senior officer.
The Kremlin was told that they use Telegram for internal communications. However, if it is blocked, the staff of the Presidential Administration is ready to switch to another messenger, said Dmitry Peskov.
Deputy of Izhevsk Zakhar Milostivenko was detained the day before on suspicion of "restricting competition". Sources clarify that the case of the parliamentarian is connected with the criminal case of Alexander Soloviev, accused of multimillion bribes.
