Former envoy Kholmanskikh's car fleet has six Toyota Land Cruiser cars
According to the documents, in 2017, the former presidential envoy needed six luxury cars at once for transportation.
The car fleet of the presidential envoy in the Urals Federal District consisted of six luxury-class cars Toyota Land Cruiser and one Shkoda Octavia. Such data was recently published by Ekaterina Petrova, a member of the Public Chamber of Yekaterinburg, who posted Kholmanskikh’s car fleet maintenance service on her social networks page. According to the document, the luxury cars would shuttle around the district 12 hours a day every working day, and the Skoda Octavia would drive around up to 17.5 hours a day. Money for fleet maintenance was allocated from the Russian budget. In total, as estimated by Petrova, all envoy's offices of the country have spent 166 million rubles ($2.6 million) on car fleets.
To recap, Igor Kholmanskikh’s career took off in 2012, after he promised to protect the country's leadership from the oppositionists “together with his mates” being Head of Uralvagonzavod’s assembly shop. In 2012, he was appointed Presidential Envoy to the Urals Federal District. In June of this year, Kholmanskikh was dismissed.
Deposit Insurance Agency and ‘criminal duo’ of its First Deputy General Director Miroshnikov and colonel–billionaire Cherkalin
Valery Miroshnikov, First Deputy General Director of the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA), has fled Russia and intends to resign. Experts explain his escape by the arrest of FSB colonel Kirill Cherkalin charged with swindling amounting to 12 billion rubles ($191.4 million); Miroshnikov and Cherkalin had close ties. In addition, the high-ranked insurer was a friend of fugitive FSB general Viktor Voronin – who had assisted to late banker Vladimir Kogan in the resolution of Bank UralSib and then relocated to Israel. The CrimeRussia reviewed operations of the ‘unsinkable’ Deposit Insurance Agency and its top manager Valery Miroshnikov – as well as his extensive connections actively used in the course of liquidation of Russian banks. The main question is: why is the Central Bank of Russia turning a blind eye to suspicious actions of the DIA?
