Crimea: deputy chief of police detained when receiving large bribe
The operation was conducted by the FSB in Saki.
The deputy chief of Crimean police in Saki was detained when receiving a bribe. The operation was conducted by the FSB.
According to the investigation, the deputy in charge of operational work received 150 thousand rubles ($2,327) as a bribe.
A criminal case under Art. 159 of the Russian Criminal Code (Swindling on a large scale committed by a person through the use of their official position) has been initiated.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
