Crime lord Shakro Molodoy left in pre-trial detention center after proclamation of judgment
The offender is an essential witness in another case against one of the former chiefs of the Investigative Committee.
After thief in law Zakhary Kalashov's sentence entry into legal force, the criminal is still held in the Krasnaya Presnya SIZO in Moscow. The convict gave testimony that prove guilt in bribery of former head of the ICR department in the Central Administrative District Alexey Kramarenko, Rosbalt reports.
Kramarenko is under arrest, and Kalashov is listed as a witness in his case, but status can be changed. Also, investigators may hold a new interrogation of the thief in law. Last year, the court sentenced Kalashov to 9 years and ten months in prison for extortion.
Kramarenko appears in a corruption case in which other former high-ranking officers of the ICR, Denis Nikandrov, Alexander Lamonov, and Mikhail Maksimenko, have already been convicted, and within which former Head of the Moscow ICR Alexander Drymanov was arrested. In total, 14 defendants are in the case.
Deposit Insurance Agency and ‘criminal duo’ of its First Deputy General Director Miroshnikov and colonel–billionaire Cherkalin
Valery Miroshnikov, First Deputy General Director of the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA), has fled Russia and intends to resign. Experts explain his escape by the arrest of FSB colonel Kirill Cherkalin charged with swindling amounting to 12 billion rubles ($191.4 million); Miroshnikov and Cherkalin had close ties. In addition, the high-ranked insurer was a friend of fugitive FSB general Viktor Voronin – who had assisted to late banker Vladimir Kogan in the resolution of Bank UralSib and then relocated to Israel. The CrimeRussia reviewed operations of the ‘unsinkable’ Deposit Insurance Agency and its top manager Valery Miroshnikov – as well as his extensive connections actively used in the course of liquidation of Russian banks. The main question is: why is the Central Bank of Russia turning a blind eye to suspicious actions of the DIA?
