“It should be noted that convicts in the penal colonies-settlements are held unguarded (but under supervision), which means that from ascent to rebound they enjoy the right of free movement throughout the colony’s territory. They can also wear civilian clothes and use cash without limitations,” the press service of the FSIN Directorate for the Vladimir Region reported.
The criminal’s escape was revealed on the morning of May 21. He was convicted in 2005, thus his term expired on August 7, 2022. The FSIN Directorate and the police began searching for the escapee.
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.
