Vanichkin screwed with MCID
Kremlin does not approve the son of the Deputy Head of the Russian Interior Ministry qua the Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department nominee.
Maxim Vanichkin’s candidacy in a position of the Head the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department (MCID) is not approved. On the new candidates for the post of the MCID Head media began to speak in July. The CID MIA employee, the Colonel Maxim Vanichkin, son of the Deputy Head of the Russian Interior Ministry Colonel General Mikhail Vanichkin, is up for this post.
According to an informed source of the CrimeRussia, the CID MIA Head, the Lieutenant-General Viktor Golovanov, under whom the Colonel Vanichkin has clerked since 2013, spoke out in favor of Vanichkin. Besides Golovanov the Vanichkin’s candidacy was lobbied by the Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev. It seemed that with such a support it is a closed matter. However, as it turned out, Kremlin does not approve Vanichkin Jr. candidacy in a position of the MCID Head. Specifically, the Presidential Assistant for personnel issues Evgeny Shkolov shot down Vanichkin. Probably, it happened at the meeting of the Commission on personnel policy in law enforcement agencies held on October 25.

Formally, it was under the pretext of a cosenage with the senior Interior Ministry official. Allegedly, there is no need to breed the nepotism indoor the Ministry. However, according to our source, the MIA Colonel career failure happaned because of the Shkolov’s personal animosity to Mikhail Vanichkin. The reason for the personal conflict between them is unknown.
The FSB offshoot Evgeny Shkolov was appointed the Chief of the Presidential Office for the Public Service and Personnel in May 2012. Previously, he worked in the Department of Economic Security (DES); also, he was the Deputy Minister of the MIA.
The new candidate for the post of the CID Head is afoot to be proposed. In the near future he will be presented to the Head of the MIA Central Board in Moscow Oleg Baranov.
