New Head of FSB Internal Security Directorate became Head of 2nd Division Alexey Komkov
According to sources of Novaya Gazeta in the FSB and the Presidential Administration, the new Head of the Internal Security Department of the FSB will be the current Head of the 2nd Division of the Internal Security Department (ISD) of the FSB Alexey Komkov. Currently Komkov is already the Acting Head of the ISD FSB.
The draft decree on the appointment of Alexey Komkov is prepared and will soon be sent to the President for signature.
Alex Komkov is considered as a henchman of the Head of the Economic Security Service (ESS) of the FSB Sergey Korolev, who himself was moved to that position from the post of the Head of ISD FSB.
Note that one of the candidates for the post of the Head of ISD FSB Oleg Feoktistov, according to Novaya Gazeta’s sources, transferred into the attached staff and in the near future will be attached to PJSC Rossetti.
In early July, the Russian President Vladimir Putin resigned from the post of the Head of the ISD FSB's Sergey Korolev, appointing him to the post of the Head of the Economic Security Service.
This decision the President made after the inspection, which took place in the Economic Security Service, which resulted in the resignation of the Head of the Department K Viktor Voronin.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
