Sweeping purge of Novosibirsk governmental structures – clampdown on corruption ties between local elite clans and their ‘patrons’ in law enforcement agencies?
Two governmental structures – judicial and watchdog agencies – have been ‘decapitated’ in the Novosibirsk region. The sweeping purge of the Regional Prosecutor’s Office was not as severe as the media had reported – but the key figures have already been removed from office.
