Bashkortostan: employees of Rospotrebnadzor tell about their colleague who committed suicide
The official’s relatives believe she was killed; no one saw the woman depressed.
Some employees of the Bashkir Office of Rospotrebnadzor were not aware of the death of their colleague Olga Sidorcheva, the others noted that suicide was not in her character. According to unofficial information, Sidorcheva left a suicide note in which she asks the family for forgiveness for their actions. The official's husband called her death a murder.
“She herself was always calm, everyone was afraid of her. On Saturdays, she would be at work from 8 am. And it did not seem that she was saddened or worried about something,” an employee of the Bashkir Department of Rospotrebnadzor said to the regional publication Ufa Online.
Sidorcheva was found dead in a forest after a “debriefing” with her boss. Entrepreneur Albert Mukhamedyarov complained to the head of the region, Radiya Khabirov, about her, after Sidorcheva decided to suspend work of his cafe as a result of an unscheduled inspection. The venue had no proper space for the preparation of products from raw meat. Khabirov instructed the Prosecutor's Office to investigate into the situation and called the approach of Rospotrebnadzor unacceptable.
After a harsh conversation with her superior, Sidorcheva, according to her husband, was ready to quit and her husband did not notice any strong feelings coming from her. They allegedly found a note near the official’s body: “Sorry for doing so. When I did this, I did not think about you.”
The intel scandal involving Oleg Smolenkov, who had access to the Kremlin and possessed valuable information, has become a widely discussed topic. It was CNN who reported, citing sources in the CIA and Donald Trump administration, on the “informant” being evacuated from Russia in 2017. It turned out that for certain people in Russia, the spy’s disappearance was not a secret, while the Russian elite denied the fact of espionage in unison with the American one. The Smolenkov family was forced to leave their luxurious mansion in Virginia, and their current whereabouts are unknown. Smolenkov’s “patron,” Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation for the International Sector Yury Ushakov, continues to fulfill his duties. The CrimeRussia looked into the story of “exfiltration” of the top informant and the possible consequences of his work as an intelligencer.
