Involvant in Rochdelskaya Street gunfight case testified against Colonel Zakharchenko
Designer Fatima Misikova, the reason behind the shooting on Rochdelskaya Street in December 2015 in Moscow, has testified against the Head of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption
New details of the high-profile special operation held by the ICR and the FSB to detain the Acting Head of the Department T of the General Administration for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption Dmitry Zakharchenko has come to light.
According to Rosbalt referring to a source at the law enforcement authorities, designer Fatima Misikova, at the request of whom Shakro Molodoy's fighters visited Elements restaurant and its owner Joanna Kim to collect money at the end of last year, has told she has been an acquaintance of Dmitry Zakharchenko for a long time and he had repeatedly provided her all sorts of services.
After the massacre on Rochdelskaya Street, at the request of Misikova, the Colonel Zakharchenko has been using his official position to collect information about the investigation and held Misikova up to date with all the changes. He was the one to warn the latter about her planned detention and enabled to escape the investigation. After receiving the timely warning from Zakharchenko, Misikova faked her death and fled abroad.
It later became known to the investigation that Misikova is alive. She was declared wanted in July 2016 and was arrested in absentia.
Rosbalt's source has refused to tell under what circumstances and when Misikova testified against Dmitry Zakharchenko, but we know that it was thereafter that FSB started working on Zakharchenko, resulting in collecting a large amount of data on his official crimes.
Yesterday Zakharchenko was arrested as part of FSB and ICR's joint operation; he is charged under the following Articles of the Criminal Code: Abuse of Official Power and Hindering the Preliminary Investigation. Large amounts of cash were seized during the search of his apartment and car; in particular, 123 million dollars and 10 million rubles. Today the court is to elect a preventive measure for the Colonel.
In less than three years, Vadim Potomsky, Governor of the Orel Region, became involved into so many scandals that rumors about his upcoming dismissal circulate persistently. Furthermore, the region under his rule has made a mark during the live teleconference with the President: a complaint made by Orel resident Klavdia Stavtseva became one of the most high-profile episodes of the broadcast. What could be the next twist in the career of Potomsky?
