The criminal case was initiated in cooperation with the regional FSB department. According to the investigation, Kopytin, both in Murom and in Vladimir, “entered into out-of-office relations with persons in respect of whom he was obliged to take measures related to the suppression of illegal commercial activities and the implementation of prosecutorial supervision.”
