Ulyukaev’s lawyers satisfied with security head Feoktistov’s interrogation
Ex-Head of Rosneft’s security service Oleg Feoktistov has been interrogated an hour and a half behind closed doors.
The defense is satisfied with the interrogation of one of the main witnesses in the case of Aleksey Ulyukaev. Lawyer Timofey Gridnev said it to journalists after a court hearing.
“We are very happy. Everything fits perfectly into our position,” the lawyer said.
The court decided to interrogate FSB General Feoktistov behind closed doors after the letter read aloud to the FSB, in which Feoktistov refused to give evidence in an open mode for security reasons, and also asked to classify this part of the trial.
The next hearing is to take place on September 26.
