According to the information on the site, Boris Markov began his career in 1986 in the Prosecutor's Office in the Malokarachayevsky District of the Karachay-Cherkess Autonomous Region as an intern. Then, a few years after working a judge in Krasnodar and Novorossiysk, he returned to the Prosecutor's Office. He has held various positions in the Southern Federal District Prosecutor's Office for several years – from the Yeisk interdistrict Prosecutor of the Krasnodar region to the First Deputy Prosecutor of Kalmykia.

The post of the Moscow Deputy Prosecutor he has held since 2009.
Recall that the former Prosecutor of the Leningrad Region Stanislav Ivanov became involved in the case of taking bribes on an especially large scale in late October.
The investigation believes that the Leningrad Prosecutor took bribes from businessmen from the beginning of his work in this position in 2014. On October 31, 2016, the President Putin signed a decree on relieving Ivanov from the post. However, two weeks before that Ivanov was hospitalized with acute poisoning in the Institute of Oncology named after Gorbacheva, where he was diagnosed with acute leukemia. In connection with it as a preventive measure to the former regional Prosecutor it was elected a recognizance not to leave.
According to the Russian MIA’s spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, the detention of Russian woman Maria Butina in the US was specifically timed to coincide with the summit of Putin and Trump in order to minimize the effect of the presidents’ meeting.
