Внук бывшего вице-президента «АвтоВАЗа» устроил аварию с погибшими в Москве, разогнавшись до 100 км/ч. Он был пьян и без прав, а потом сбежал. pic.twitter.com/yKfOGDIF42— baza (@bazabazon) 15 апреля 2019 г.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
