Ivangorod: Kingisepp Customs Checkpoint officers got jammed up by FSB officers
In the Leningrad region, FSB officers have conducted a spot check at the Kingisepp Customs Checkpoint, located in Ivangorod.
The reason for the FSB’s visit was information that customs officers would get rewarded for the right "look" at tonnage of businessmen’s cargoes.
As a result, the operatives who broke into the checkpoint knocked two customs officers to the floor, handcuffed them, and began to ask "unpleasant" questions, videotaping the entire scene.
The law enforcers took two Rostransnadzor officers with them. It should be noted that it is this structure, controlled by the Ministry of Transport, which is responsible for the compliance with the standards of vehicles entering the territory of the Russian Federation. First of all, this applies to trucks and heavy trucks.
As reported by 47news, Official Spokeswoman for the Kingisepp Customs Office, Olga Dyatko, has refused to give any comments on the visit of FSB officers to the customs point. Press Secretary of the North-Western Customs Administration Pavel Gusev, in turn, added that he intended to discuss the matter of the FSB officers’ visit to Kingisepp Customs no earlier than Monday, October 23.
It is noteworthy that the duty officer of the Kingisepp Customs was not even aware of the recent visit of the FSB.
In Kabardino-Balkaria, an officer of Rospotrebnadzor (Federal Service on Customers' Rights Protection and Human Well-being Surveillance) had received a bribe for protection. The businessman, who had given the bribe, has turned to police.
In the last two years, the management of SK Balt-Stroy Limited Liability Company was involved into two criminal cases pertaining to embezzlements in the Ministry of Culture (Restorers’ case) and embezzlements during the construction of Vladimir Putin’s residence in Novo-Ogarevo. However, this hasn’t affected the company’s business affairs in any way. Governmental contracts with SK Balt-Stroy are extended on a regular basis. Structures affiliated with the company have been recently awarded a contract to restore the Kremlin towers. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why do the disreputable restorers still continue working in the Kremlin?
