Commander-In-Chief of the MIA Internal Troops Vyacheslav Varchuk, who is charged with taking a bribe of 10 million rubles ($172.000).
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.
"The information published in the media that Rosgvardia General Yakubovsky is allegedly ready to go bail for his ex-colleague Vyacheslav Varchuk is untrue," the interlocutor said, stressing that Yakubovsky did not make any promises to the representatives of Varchuk's defense.
"Replicated information is pulled out of the context of a telephone conversation between General Yakubovsky and the wife of General Varchuk, held at her initiative, and interpreted in this form," Rosgvardia concluded.
As The CrimeRussia previously wrote, Varchuk confessed to the court in taking a bribe of 10 million rubles. He was charged on March 7, the court left the General in the pre-trial detention center.
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
