Stoyanov got the right information at Mikhailov and Dokuchaev, with whom Stoyanov has been familiar. Ruslan Stoyanov headed the cybercrime department in Kaspersky Lab in 2013. According to snews.ru, from that time, the department of the company started cooperation with the FSB and the Interior Ministry. It is known that prior to joining Kaspersky Lab Stoyanov worked in the management of special technical activities of the Moscow police (Department K). His subordinates also come from this administration and the Investigative Committee.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
