Former Presidential Adviser on Internet Development German Klimenko, who had predicted “the end of Telegram’s glory,” re-installed the illegal messenger, which he had previously refused to use after the court's decision to ban it.
Tver region Minister of Oversight Functions Viktor Shaforost is placed to the SIZO on suspicion of arson of a car. Soon, the official may be charged with setting Novaya Moscow ICR office on fire and bribing the ICR employees. All these feats Shaforost committed to saving his younger brother, arrested for organizing a gang including policemen. But the Minister rejects all charges against him. The official says that he fell victim to extortion from the investigators who reviewed the case of his brother. The appeals to the FSB and the ICR resulted in nothing, although the check on the polygraph proved the guilt of Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Kharchenko. Why many residents of the Tver region are inclined to believe that Shaforost is not a pyromaniac-recidivist, but a victim of siloviki?
