Putin dismisses Anti-Corruption Department Head Oleg Plokhoi
Andrey Chobotov is going to take his place in accordance with the presidential decree.
Oleg Plokhoi has been the department head since its establishment in 2013. The Kremlin press service reported that the former Anti-Corruption Department Head is going to become the First Deputy Minister of Justice.
Andrey Chobotov was appointed in his stead. He began his career as a KGB officer, before moving to the Security Council of Russia in 1999, and then to the Ministry of Defense. In 2008, he joined the Military Industrial Commission. Chobotov left the Military Industrial Commission in 2012 pursuant to a presidential decree and moved to the secretariat of Sergei Ivanov, the Presidential Administration Head.
The long-term confrontation between respected in the criminal world thief in law Badri Koguashvili (Badri Kutaissky) and the punitive system has recently resulted in another information leak. A video (in fact, just a slide show) has been uploaded on YouTube with a narrative implying that Koguashvili – posing as a thief-in-law of the old school – violates the thieves’ code himself.
The documents for Alexander Kukovyakin’s petition were all prepared, but the former deputy of Yekaterinburg City Duma and the former Uralmash leader suddenly refused to use the opportunity to leave the colony before the end of his term.
