The General of Rosgvardia, Anatoly Yakubovsky, said that he did not intend to go bail for former colleague, Deputy Commander-In-Chief of the MIA Internal Troops Vyacheslav Varchuk, who became a figurant of the case of a 10-million-ruble bribe ($172.000), RIA Novosti reports citing the press service of the Rosgvardia Central District Troops.
