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.

“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
