Does former Head of Federal Customs Service back-pedal his case?
According to the newspaper Kommersant, the former Head of the Federal Customs Service has checked into the hospital after series of high-profile searches, which took place at work and at home of the official and his deputies.
The source of Kommersant said that the former Head of the Federal Customs Service Andrey Belyaninov, who has recently sent in resignation at his own request, was checked into the hospital after a number of searches, related to the case of smuggling of alcoholic beverages. Due to the ill health of the former official investigative actions against him were temporarily suspended.
The source reported that because of the stress chronic diseases of Belyaninov are recrudesced. However, according to another source of information, at the moment the former official takes full range of health surveys to get a new office.
Belyaninov's stay in the hospital can delay the investigation into the smuggling of alcohol, in which the former Head of the Federal Customs Service is named in a case as a witness. In the case of it has already arrested the Head of the holding company Forum Dmitry Mihalchenko, the Head of his security service, the former Deputy Head of the Economic Crimes Department of the MIA in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region Boris Korevsky, the co-owner of Kontreyl Logistic Severo-Zapad company Valery Kindzersky and other enterpreneurs. At the moment, the total damage from their activity is about 1.7 million rubles.
According to the source of the CrimeRussia, the Head of the Federal Customs Service's problems began at a time, when their jobs have lost the former Head of the Federal Security Service Yevgeny Murov and the Chief of the Department K of the FSB General Viktor Voronin, who provided him a cover.
Vladimir Vladimirovich Vladimirov became the Governor of the Stavropol Krai after staging the flight of his namesake – President Vladimir Putin – at the head of a flock of white cranes on the Yamal Peninsula. For almost five years since then, the Stavropol krai has been trying to get rid of such a ‘gift’. The region is plunging into crisis, corruption is flourishing, while officials from Governor’s close circle are prosecuted one by one. Local residents believe that law enforcement structures have declared a war on Vladimirov. Why can’t the FSB do anything with the Governor? And why is Moscow ignoring numerous requests to terminate Vladimirov?
