Rosgvardia to start catching gangsters and thieves in law on its own
There have been reports claiming that the establishment has been making its own body of operational and investigative activities. Rosgvardia refuted the information.
Rosgvardia intends to create its own body of operational and investigative activities to stop "serving" the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB, reported the Telegram channel Mash. According to the channel, the federal service aims to fight against organized crime independently, catching thieves in law, leaders and active members of criminal groups and handle all the things the 6th operative-search unit of the Moscow Criminal Intelligence is currently engaged in.
However, the ministry officially declared that the information was not true.
Now Rosgvardia is mostly engaged in the protection of public order at various events, as well as participates in detentions helping the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Federal Security Service.
We shall remind that previously the CrimeRussia had reported that Alexander Bynenko, the new Acting Chief of the Moscow Criminal Intelligence (MCI), had dismissed all the operatives. The agency is planning to completely reorganize its departments, combining them, and the "extra" operatives will be fired. According to sources, Bynenko just has to finish the cleansing before he gets replaced. Colonel Dmitry Filatov, the Deputy Head of the Department for Combating Crimes against Person of Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, will become the new Head of the MCI.
