Mikhalchenko's subordinates wiretap Rosreestr, FMS and FNS officials
Employees of the FSB found audio and video tracking equipment in the offices of officials working at the Unified Document Center (ECD).
Employees of the FSB found audio and video tracking equipment in the offices of officials working at the Unified Document Center (ECD) on Krasnogo Tekstilshika Street in St. Petersburg. The devices were found in the premises of the Rosreestr Administration, departments of the Federal Migration Service and Federal Tax Service. Wiretapping devices were also installed in the offices of officials, who have access to state secrets, in particular, the Head of the Petersburg Rosreestr, Vladimir Karelin.
According to Fontanka, security officers are looking for eavesdropping devices in the Unified Document Center since March 2017. Investigators believe that the building, which was commissioned in 2009, was stuffed with hidden equipment during the construction. Fontanka assumes that the catch in the ECD can be qualified as Illegal Receipt of Information Constituting a State Secret (Art. 283.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
It is interesting that the Unified Document Center, where state structures rent premises, belongs to oligarch Dmitry Mikhalchenko, who was arrested upon the smuggling case. The general contractor in the construction of the facility was the Stroykomplekt Company, which St. Petersburg media call actually related to Baltstroy of Mikhalchenko. In late March, the head of this company was arrested in the case of embezzlement of money allocated for the presidential residence in Novo-Ogaryovo.

Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
