Detained rainmaker Zakharchenko assisted in absconding of VimpelCom Head Mikhail Slobodin
The case of the Acting Head of the Department T at the MIA General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption Dmitry Zakharchenko has picked up some interesting embellishments along the way.
According to data obtained by Interfax from law enforcement officers, the Acting head of the Department T at the MIA General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption, arrested on suspicion of taking a large bribe and abuse of official power, is directly involved in the absconding of the former Head of VimpelCom Mikhail Slobodin.
Once Zakharchenko had told Slobodin that FSB had been carrying out a cultivation in the Gayzer case against him, as part of which the former top of the Komi Republic administration is currently under investigation on charges of corruption, the latter has left the Russian Federation in a haste.
The management of the Department T, once headed by Zakharchenko, has been well aware of the investigation of cases involving corruption, since they are all related to the scope of the Department T's activity, that is, the fuel and energy complex, in one way or another.
Zakharchenko would be the first to learn accurate information on all operational activities, so he actively used it in the mercenary purposes.
It should be reminded that yesterday, as part of FSB and ICR's joint operation, the Acting Head of the Department T at the MIA General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption Dmitry Zakharchenko was arrested. During the search of his apartment and office, 123 million dollars in cash were seized from Zakharchenko, and about 10-20 million rubles more.
In the morning, it became known that he used to render paid services to a suspect in Zakhar Kalashov's (Shakro Molodoy) case Fatima Misikova, who eventually testified against him. According to the CrimeRussia's source, Zakharchenko has been a well-known rainmaker in the corruption sphere, who may be involved in a number of high-profile criminal cases.
Judging by his awareness in Mikhail Slobodin's case, which has been cultivated by the FSB operatives, in addition to having a direct access to MIA's secret information Zakharchenko has high-ranking knowledgeable informants at the Federal Security Service.
The colonel is charged under three articles of the Russian Criminal Code, namely 285 (Abuse of Official Powers), 290 (Bribe-Taking), and 294 (Obstruction of Carrying out of Justice and of Preliminary Investigations).
The former Head of VimpelCom Mikhail Slobodin, declared federally wanted under the case of bribing the Komi Republic Administration representatives, is currently in France, and he is not going to go back (contrary to own comment to the press), about which he had already warned his ex-wife.
The ICR has reported on solving the murder of Ilya Pichko, who had been due to testify in the high-profile case of smuggling at the hearing on December 18. The search for the head of Yugo-Vostochnaya Torgovaya Kompaniya began after he failed to appear at the hearing scheduled for December 11.
