Along with Gorchakov, Saratov entrepreneurs Sergey Bulatov and Alexey Pashkevich are under investigation.
The owner of the chain of restaurants Tri Olenya (Three Deers), Stanislav Gorchakov, became one of the suspects in the corruption case, the main defendants in which are the deputy head of the economic security service of the FSB for the Samara Region Sergey Gudovany and the head of the “M” department of the special services Pavel Cheremshantsev, Kommersant writes.
Earlier, the special services officers were detained in Samara and then taken into custody for two months on suspicion of bribe-taking, as well as in relations with the OCG Zakonovskiye. More than 80 million rubles (~1.300.000 USD) in cash were confiscated from the colonels during the searches.

The Investigative assumed that the funds were transferred to the accounts of Sarneftetrade LLC, controlled by the suspects, and also transferred to them through intermediaries, three businessmen. In addition to Gorchakov, Saratov entrepreneurs Sergey Bulatov and Alexey Pashkevich are under investigation.
