Moscow: FSB officer gets robbed during traffic dispute
While unknown people were distracting the security officer with a dispute, their accomplice stole a bag of cash and a FSB service certificate from the man’s car.
An officer of the Russian Federal Security Service was robbed during a traffic dispute in the northeast of Moscow, AGN Moskva reports.
The incident occurred on the 85th km of the Moscow Ring Road outer side in the evening of February 7. It is reported that the FSB officer had a conflict with unidentified persons.
When he got out of the car to sort things out, they stole a bag with 30 thousand rubles ($458), keys to an apartment, a passport, and official ID of an FSB officer from his Renault.
After the incident, the 35-year-old victim went to law enforcement bodies. A check is being conducted into the robbery.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
