In Moscow, the siloviki conducted a special operation to detain deputy director general of the Yunost' sanatorium in Sochi Alexander Semeikin. This is reported by REN TV, citing sources.
According to the interlocutors portal, the 60-year-old official is suspected of involvement in the multi-million theft. It is specified that the detention was held in one of the shops along Vavilova Street. The city police do not confirm this information yet.

For several days now, the minds of the public in St. Petersburg are occupied with one piece of news – Lieutenant-General Umnov, head of the Main Directorate of the MIA for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, leaves his post and sets off for a promotion to Moscow. Sergey Umnov is allegedly designated for the position of deputy minister of the MIA Vladimir Kolokoltsev. However, on the sidelines of the ministry they expect not a promotion for the Petersburg general, but an honorable resignation with the consequent loss of political weight.
