Unnecessary witness. Death of penitentiary service lieutenant colonel Viktor Shevchenko: Suicide or murder?
Two events occurred in close succession in the Irkutsk region. On February 11, 2018, it became known that major general Anatoly Kilanov, Head of the Regional Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, was removed from office. The main suspect in an anti-corruption inquest carried out in late 2017, Kilanov was accused of extorting ‘levies’ from his subordinates. On February 12, 2018, Viktor Shevchenko, his deputy for service support, was found hanged. The investigation is currently explaining this suicide by a family quarrel. Has the lieutenant colonel really taken his own life? Or was it a disguised murder? And if so, who could be interested in it?
