The Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov commented on the possibility of the resignation of the Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev on the background of the scandal around the Colonel Dmitry Zakharchenko and found 9 billion rubles cash and about 300 million euros in his bank accounts.
"There is no any question about any resignations. First, it's need to wait for results of the investigation before giving some estimates,” - said the President's press secretary.
Kremlin spokesman also said that the Zakharchenko's case is "colorful manifestation of the fight against corruption."
Earlier, Peskov said that Putin is informed about resonant detention of the Colonel and the seizure from him of 9 billion rubles. The commission, headed by the Head of the Presidential Administration Anton Vaino, carries out the examination.
Recall that on September 8th the FSB detained the Acting Head of the Department T of the Main Department for Economic Security and Combatting the Corruption Ministry of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs Dmitry Zakharchenko. He was arrested for two months by the court. He is accused of Bribe-Taking (Art. 290 of the Criminal Code), Abuse of Official Powers (Art. 285 of the Criminal Code), and Obstruction of Justice (Art. 294 of the Criminal Code).
Security officers found in the apartment of the Zakharchenko sister money in various currencies equivalent to almost 9 billion rubles - a record for the seized amount of money. In addition, Rosbalt reported that members of the Zakharchenko family were allegedly found several accounts in foreign banks, the amount of deposits on which is about 300 million euros. The Colonel denies involvement to the found money.
Rosfinmonitoring (Federal Financial Monitoring Service) analyzed the data of the Panama Papers and the Paradise Papers and discovered thousands of offshore companies through which the Russians laundered billions of rubles. Materials on deputies and governors were handed over to law enforcers.
A spokesperson of the Prosecutor's office said that the ECHR had not studied all the materials of the criminal case, so they were offered not to overturn the verdict, but to send the case for a new review in court.
