Head of MIA’s directorate in Kursk region stands down
Head of Kursk Nikolay Ovcharov had earlier surrendered office, as well.
Head of MIA’s directorate in Kursk region and Mayor General of police Grigory Kulik has stood down. This became known today, on April 2. Head of Kursk Nikolay Ovcharov had earlier surrendered office, as well.
Kulik was appointed the head of MIA’s directorate in Kursk region in July, 2014. A few high-profile cases - including the one against a criminal ‘authority’ Dmitry Volobuev and an ex-head of Kursk police Nikolay Zaytsev - had been initiated during his office. Perpetrators of contract murders of criminal ‘authorities’ had also been detained.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
