Zakharchenko case: Head of GUEBiPK Department F Dmitry Katkov dismissed
Earlier, Vladimir Kolokoltsev reported about a check into the Head of one of the anti-corruption departments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, without specifying the names.
The Russian Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev dismissed the Head of the Department F of GUEBiPK of the MIA Colonel Dmitry Katkov.
Fontanka confirmed information, previously published by the CrimeRussia, that Kolokoltsov spoke about the Head of the Department F of GUEBiPK of the MIA Colonel Dmitry Katkov. In his interview to the Pozdnyakov TV program, the Interior Minister said that as a result of an official investigation, launched after finding Colonel Zakharchenko’s 8.5 billion rubles, another high-ranked police officer was dismissed.
"Forgetfulness" of the policeman has become the reason for his dismissal. Katkov did not mention his property abroad in his income declaration for several years (he owns an apartment in Montenegro).
The Colonel started his career in St. Petersburg tax police, then he was transferred to the MIA General Administration for Tax Crimes. Later, he was appointed the Deputy Head of the General Administration of Internal Security in the Northwestern Federal District. Then, he was transferred to Moscow.
In addition, it became known that Dmitry Katkov’s brother Vadim serves as the Deputy Head of the Northwestern Customs Administration.
To remind: on September 29, the MIA official representative Irina Volk reported that Dmitry Katkov’s undeclared real estate situated abroad was found, thus "decision in accordance with the current legislation will be made in this regard."
For several days now, the minds of the public in St. Petersburg are occupied with one piece of news – Lieutenant-General Umnov, head of the Main Directorate of the MIA for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, leaves his post and sets off for a promotion to Moscow. Sergey Umnov is allegedly designated for the position of deputy minister of the MIA Vladimir Kolokoltsev. However, on the sidelines of the ministry they expect not a promotion for the Petersburg general, but an honorable resignation with the consequent loss of political weight.
