Police chief in Khanty-Mansiysk AD dismissed for torture of detainees
Chief of Pyt-Yakh Administration of MIA Eduard Baydakov was dismissed after a scandalous story with the sadistic torture of detainees at the police station.
Let us recall that, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, workers of the Pyt-Yakh MIA Administration holding senior positions in the police used sophisticated sadistic methods of torture against detainees: beating them and hanging on a rack at the height of about 180 cm. The fact that detainees were tortured at the very police duty room is the most paradoxical.
According to Press Head of the MIA Administration for the Yugra Khanty-Mansiysk District Olga Abmaykina, employees of the police department are defendants in the case.
As for Eduard Baydakov's dismissal, this decision was taken by members of the board of the regional Ministry of Internal Affairs after summing up the work over the past year. As explained by the agency's press service, this dismissal is connected with the rotation of the administrative board. Baydakov is currently on vacation, and Roman Simonov, who had previously served as Deputy to Eduard Baydakov, has been appointed acting head of the city's MIA Administration.
When Baydakov comes from vacation leave, higher authorities will decide on his transfer to another unit.
Karina Tsurkan was taken under arrest on suspicion of espionage. The board member of Inter RAO turned out to be a Russian national as opposed to the earlier claims that she was a Moldovan one. She gave up her Moldovan passport two years ago.

The clampdown on the ‘Baltic laundromat’ hasn’t destroyed the global cash-out market. ‘Black cash’ is still laundered at the state level. Apparently, the main money laundering hub is currently located in a small Central Asian country – Kyrgyzstan. Ethnic criminal groups operating in Russia, Europe, and Central Asia use it to legalize their shady proceeds. Revenues generated by the illegal business are estimated at $500 million per year. However, it is impossible to covertly launder money on a global scale. Is the national political establishment involved in the criminal schemes?
