Lawyer: defendant in Shakro Molodoy’s case did not testify against Drymanov
Previously, the resignation of Head of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow was connected primarily with the testimony of former Head of the ICR Investigation Department in the Central Administrative District of Moscow Aleksey Kramarenko.
Former Head of the ICR Investigation Department in the Central Administrative District of Moscow Aleksey Kramarenko has never testified either against himself or Head of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow Aleksandr Drymanov, Colonel Kramarenko’s lawyer Elena Fedulova told Moskovsky Komsomolets.
According to her, “Kramarenko always denied his involvement in the commission of the crime with which he was charged, as well as that he knows nothing about the facts of corruption, in which the investigation accuses the leadership of the Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow.”
Throughout the entire preliminary investigation from July 2016 to the present day, Aleksey Kramarenko was repeatedly interrogated first as a witness, and then as a defendant, lawyer Fedulova noted. And throughout this time, he was making the same consistent statements.
To recall, in late May 2018, Rosbalt reported that former Head of the ICR Investigation Department in the Central Administrative District of Moscow Aleksey Kramarenko, who was detained on December 26, 2017, testified against Major-General of Justice, Aleksandr Drymanov. In particular, according to the agency, Kramarenko said that he had released thief in law Shakro Molodoy’s henchman Andrey Kochuykov (aka Italyanets) by personal order of the head of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow. Rosbalt reported that Kramarenko denied his guilt, saying that he had been fulfilling the will of the leadership and did not receive a monetary reward for his actions. At the same time, earlier, during a court hearing in February 2018, Kramarenko told pretty much the same, but he described the moment of receiving the appropriate order not from Drymanov, but from his first deputy, General Denis Nikandrov. Although Nikandrov himself previously pointed at the direct involvement of Drymanov in bribing Shakro Molodoy. A representative of the Prosecutor General's Office announced this at the January session of the Moscow City Court.
June 1, General Drymanov retired for length of service, after which some sources reported that it was the FSB investigation that made the head of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow do it. It was reported that the FSB officers had long been trying to initiate a criminal case against Drymanov, but had been unable to do this due to his specialty status and support from ICR Head Alexander Bastrykin.
