«K», «T», «P», who is next? Why the ESS FSB of Russia was mopped up
The informed source of the CrimeRussia said that all the latest resignations of the Administration’s heads of the Economic Security Service of the Federal Security Service of Russia is nothing else but a mopping up operation of the Administration of Internal Security of FSB.
Administrative leadership of Russian state security service experiences new resignation. Lately it occurred that two high-ranking officers of the service followed the lead of the head of one of the main FSB administrations – Administration «K», Viktor Voronin, who offered his resignation to the management. This time, as the source told, heads of the Administrations «P» and «T» of the FSB RF decided to leave the office.
«T» and «P», as well as «K» - are the main administrations of the FSB RF, a framework of the Economic Security Service (ESS). The «P» Administration is engaged in counterintelligence on the industrial enterprises, «T» - supervises transport, aircraft, the Russian Railways and so on. Voronin’s administration works on the bank sphere and steams of budgetary funds. Yury Yakovlev, who also was among potential retirees, is a head of ESS, in which these administrations are included. It means that the entire leadership of the central administrations fell under the mopping up.

The informed source commented these notorious retirements for the CrimeRussia. According to available data, Voronin had a reason to leave the office – investigation of the «contraband case». The 9th Administration of FSB of Russia has recently carried out special operation on suppression of contraband streams to the country. During the operation the servicemen discovered a criminal scheme of contraband production’s transfer to Russia, in which one of the main roles belonged to a head of the 7th Administration «K» ESS FSB of Russia Vadim Uvarov and his relative – investigator on major cases on fight against customs crimes of the General Department of Anti-Smuggling of the Federal Customs Service of Russia Pavel Smolyarchuk. Due to a coming scandal, Voronin hurried to resign. But recently it occurred that he was not the first notorious retiree.
At the same time, it appeared that the Military Investigation Directorate (MID) of the Investigative Committee of Russia (ICR) is currently investigating a criminal case against former deputy head of the Special Operations Center of FSB of Russia and commander of Vymple special group Vladimir Podolsky. The investigation incriminates to the general fraud in the Federal State Unitary Enterprise Vedomstvennaya Okhrana Obyektov Promyshlennosty Rossiyskoy Federatsii (art. 159 para. 4), where he had been a deputy director general for a long time. Besides that, Podolsky was charged with illegal weapon trade and storage (art. 222 para. 1 of the Russian Criminal Code). It is interesting that the case over fraud in the Federal State Unitary Enterprise was initiated in 2015, but till now it has been investigated against unknown persons.
The investigators discovered that while working in one of the largest security company in Russia, Podolsky was making a living on fictitious employments. The enterprise’s check showed many «ghost employees», who had received salary monthly. The investigation believes that the money went to the company’s heads’ pockets. According to the source, not only Podolsky was charged over the case, there are some more defendants.
Moreover, during a search of Podolsky, security men found weapon and bullets, but no necessary approval documents. This also became an excuse for a prosecution.
After charging the general, the investigator on major cases of the MID ICR immediately made a petition to place the criminal under custody, but the court showed some loyalty and placed him under home arrest.
Viktor Voronin and Vladimir Podolsky – are old friends and their «life troubles» are all links in one chain.
