FSB checks Vladimir Markin’s involvement in case of Shakro Molodoy
According to a new lead, the resigned office spokesperson might have been providing General Nikandrov with information about the investigation of criminal cases in the central office of the ICR.
First Deputy Chief of the ICR Investigative Committee in Moscow Denis Nikandrov, accused of taking a bribe from thief in law Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy), might have been in cahoot with resigned ICR Spokesperson Vladimir Markin. This is the version of The Moscow Post. According to it, the FSB will now check Markin’s involvement in the case of senior ICR investigators.
Let us recall that after Nikandrov was detained, details of his biography began to surface, casting a shadow on his impeccable career. In particular, it became known that in addition to his wife and child, the general had a lover – an employee of the ICR Department for Interaction with the Media Anastasiya Selivanova. It was this department that Vladimir Markin headed. The woman had already been under cultivation by Department M of the FSB. According to Life, it was Selivanova, who pushed the general to bribery, as she demanded a good living from him.

FSB operatives have also raided Selivanova’s place. Not only might she have known about Nikandrov’s affairs, but also assist him. For example, transfer proprietary information about the investigation of criminal cases in the ICR central office or be a mediator in negotiations.
However, as of recent, she has been on maternity leave; once Nikandrov was arrested, she filed a written application for leave to care for the child. Which means, it might have been her boss Vladimir Markin, who had been providing the information, The Moscow Post says.
In addition, immediately after Maksimenko, Lamonov and Nikandrov’ arrest, the Head of ICR press service tried to disavow his colleagues. “This does cast a shadow over the entire department, but work on self-purification will continue,” Markin’s statement said. A few months later, he resigned from the ICR and got a more peaceful job in RusHydro.
The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
