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.
Artur Tsybikov, who refers to himself as Deputy Supreme Shaman of Russia, is trying to justify the Zhen Tengery Yaba ritual, which caused public outrage. He noted that the head of Chechnya does the same every year, burning five camels.
After the Colonel Zakharchenko scandal, Andrey Kurnosenko and some of his colleagues were told that they were not fit for the job. However, the head of the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department retained his post.
