Organizer of Ulyukaev's arrest sets bag for FSB ESS Deputy Head
According to sources, FSB General Oleg Feoktistov could leave the position of the Head of the Rosneft security service for "suspicion of disloyalty to Sechin."
Head of the Rosneft security service Oleg Feoktistov, who organized the operation to detain Head of the Ministry of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev, is preparing to return to the ranks of the special services. According to RBC, Feoktistov, also known as General Fix, is considered as a candidate for the post of Deputy Head of the Economic Security Service (ESS) of the FSB.
Recall that before the changeover to Rosneft in September 2016, the General was Deputy Head of the FSB Bureau of Internal Affairs (BIA) and oversaw the work of the 6th service of this department. Feoktistov was the initiator of several resonant cases against high-ranking officials and security officers. In particular, he initiated cases against Denis Sugrobov, Boris Kolesnikov, Nikita Belykh, Vyacheslav Gaizer, Alexander Khoroshavin.
In BIA, Feoktistov was Deputy to Sergey Korolev. Earlier, Sergey Korolev worked in the Economic Security Service of the FSB Directorate in St. Petersburg, then he was adviser to Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, after which he was appointed to the post of the BIA FSB Head. In the summer of 2016, Korolev was appointed to the post of the FSB BIA Head, but his subordinate Feoktistov did not take the post of ESS Head or in the BIA. According to the interlocutor of RBC, the General did not advance in the service, as he was not a member of the Korolev's team. The latter, in turn, considering Feoktistov his competitor, lobbied another person for the post of the ESS Head. Novaya Gazeta wrote that as a result, the department was headed by former Head of the 2nd service Alexey Komkov.
Sources of the agency believe that if Feoktistov is appointed to the ESS, he will become a "counterweight to Korolev." Press secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov has not yet answered the question of RBC about the appointment of the General, which should be signed by the Head of state in the future.
As the CrimeRussia previously wrote, on the dismissal of Feoktistov from Rosneft it became known on March 7. Subsequently, Head of the company Igor Sechin confirmed the dismissal of the Head of the security service, indicating that he "returned to military service." However, true reasons for the resignation are still unknown. The RBC's source, close to the leadership of the FSB, called “suspicion of disloyalty to Sechin" among the motives for dismissal. Other interlocutors say that Feoktistov lost the post because he "overdid the Minister”.
As previously reported, Feoktistov was engaged in the operation on Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukaev's detention on the night of November 15, 2016. The Head of the Ministry of Economic Development was caught red-handed when taking a bribe of $2 million from representatives of Rosneft. The money, according to the version of the ICR, the Minister extorted for the positive conclusion of his department with regard to the purchase of Bashneft's stake by Rosneft.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
