'Gray Cardinal' of Kemerovo police resigned
Deputy Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Central Board Viktor Kutylkin has written the statement at own will following the spouse, Deputy Governor for transport, industry and entrepreneurship Ekaterina Kutylkina. Both high-ranking officials may become involved in a criminal case.
Viktor Kutylkin, the Deputy Head of the MIA Central Board of Russia in the Kemerovo region, wrote a report on his resignation. This is reported by the source of the CrimeRussia in law enforcement agencies of the region. The report at will was written on April 1, but so far it has not been signed.
The resignation of a high-ranking policeman may be connected with a high-profile criminal case, which was instituted in the Kemerovo region not so long ago. According to available information, Viktor Kutylkin is now named in a case as a witness. The case essentials are not disclosed. But it is not ruled out that this is a scandal with the Inskaya coal mine shares. In addition, on March 31, 2017, his wife, Deputy Governor for transport, industry and entrepreneurship Ekaterina Kutylkina also resigned at will.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, all the resonant criminal cases in recent years in the Kuzbass have in one way or another echoed the Kutylkin family. Viktor Kutylkin is called the gray cardinal of the regional Interior Ministry. For the first time in his career he became Deputy Head under former Head Alexander Yelin in 2012. Then Kutylkin was expected to vacate the seat of the regional Central Board Head. However, his candidacy was not approved by then Minister of Internal Affairs Rashid Nurgaliev. Yuri Larionov became Head of the regional MIA. However, from that period there were talks that "all the processes in the security department" were supervised by Viktor Kutylkin, not by the first leader.
