MIA Head to dismiss senior official arrested for bribe to Colonel Timchenko
Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev intends to dismiss the Deputy Head of the MIA General Administration of Internal Security.
MIA spokeswoman Irina Volk reported the MIA Head is preparing a motion for dismissal of the Deputy Head of the MIA General Administration of Internal Security, responsible for internal security in regions.
Romeiko-Gurko and Deputy Head of the MIA General Administration of Internal Security Vladimir Tsvetkov have already offered their resignation.
In addition, Irina Volk reported about the upcoming structural changes in the MIA General Administration of Internal Security in connection with liquidation of the Regional Internal Security Administrations. The reform is carried in order to optimize Internal Security Administration’s activity.
According to the spokeswoman, this decision was made in connection with the high-profile case over arrest of Chief of the Russian MIA Internal Security in the Northwestern Federal District Yuri Timchenko, who is suspected of extorting bribes for closure of a case over tax evasion. According to the ICR, he extorted a bribe in the amount of 100 million rubles. The criminal case against Yuri Timchenko was initiated under part 6 of Art. 290 of the Criminal Code (Bribe-Taking on an especially large scale).
Businessman Mikhailov demands from Insider to remove two articles covering his membership in Solntsevskaya gang
In 2016, Mikhailov took advantage of the right to be forgotten, demanding Yandex and Google delete the hits on requests "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas," "Sergey Mikhailov Mikhas Solntsevo," "Sergey Mikhailov Solntsevo" and other similar wording.
Vladimir Putin ordered the Service to “ensure suspects, defendants, and convicts live in conditions compliant with the Russian law and international standards” during a formal event held in the Kremlin on May 31. The event was held to celebrate officers and prosecutors promoted to higher-ranking positions and military ranks. Could it be that the Russian President paid this much attention to the Service due to a growing number of articles about bribery, murder, and scandals associated with the Service?
