“Sokolov summoned me to his office, where his Deputy and several other heads of departments were. In their presence, he began to shout obscenities, insult me, to which I replied to him: "Do not shout." Then he took a coffee mug from the table and threw it at me. I dodged, then Sokolov punched me in the face, in the right eye. I fell and lost consciousness,” said Klimukhin.

I agreed and found a place - Petrovka, I informed Sokolov about this, all the transfer documents were signed. But the pressure continued,” explained Klimukhin. According to him, Sokolov often called him a Moro and other offensive words in presence of other people.
