They intend to make a special statement about the searches conducted in the cabinet and in the house of Vaskov by the officers of the FSB and the ICR of the Russian Federation for the Chelyabinsk region.

The local Investigative Committee explained that the events are held in the framework of the criminal case on the grounds of the crime under part 3 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code (Swindling).

According to URA.RU, one of Vaskov's subordinates, head of Architectural and planning center municipal entreprise Tatiana Ivannikova was detained for 48 hours. She is also a close friend of the Mayor.
According to one of the versions, relatives of Ivannikova and entrepreneur Vladimir Murashkin, whom is called the 'grey Mayor' of the city, became the persons of siloviki's interest.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
