Anatoly Yakunin may become head of MIA for Sverdlovsk Region
Earlier, the Lieutenant-General headed the metropolitan directorate.
Lieutenant-General Anatoly Yakunin, who headed the MIA’s Main Directorate for Moscow from 2012 to 2016, will most likely head the police of the Sverdlovsk Region, Znak.com reports with reference to sources in power structures of the region.
The Muscovites remember Yakunin for his fight against the racers. His wife worked, according to the data of 2016, at Rosneft as head of the Department for Social Development and Corporate Culture, and his son-in-law, Grigory Artamonov, in the department of presidential affairs.
It is to be recalled that on October 2, the Russian president transferred the chief of the Sverdlovsk police, Lieutenant-General Mikhail Borodin, to Voronezh. This event coincided with the searches in the Yekaterinburg police.
Soslan Dzhanaev, the goalkeeper of Kazan’s Rubin, has spoken in support of the football players Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev, who had been placed under arrest until December 8 over two fights in Moscow that they had gotten involved in. He called for a fair punishment on his Instagram page.
