“Novaya Gazeta”: the arrest of the speaker is associated with the war between rival branches of the security forces
The recent arrest of the former Minister of economic development Alexei Ulyukayev, who is accused of receiving a bribe of $ 2 million associated with the war groups of security forces, writes “Novaya Gazeta”. According to the newspaper, talking about the opposition group of the head of the Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin and opponents of the Federal security service (FSB) of the Russian Federation.
As told sources, development of a speaker was conducted over several months. According to interlocutors of publication, the case was handled in the summer took the post of head of the security service of “Rosneft” Oleg Feoktistov, shortly before transferred to reserve an FSB General and head of the Department “K” of the FSB Ivan Tkachev.
The article Feoktistov and Tkachev called the “people from the most influential and effective in the recent past, an interagency team of security forces”, which included colleagues Bastrykin – head USB RCDS Mikhail Maksimenko and his Deputy Alexander Limonov, arrested the notorious case of a senior staff of the Investigative Committee.
However, the development Ulyukayev made up another team of security forces – management of the “M” of FSB of the Russian Federation, headed by Sergei Alpatov. It Alpatovo and his men managed to defeat the group Feoktistov – Maksimenko, which allowed the head of the FSB Alexander Bortnikov to send in the reserve Feoktistova, is among the security officials who had direct access to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, and perhaps to oust SK Chairman Bastrykin, said in the article.
It is noted that this Feoktistov in conjunction with Maximenko has developed and implemented operations, culminating in the sensational arrests of the last eight years – governors, Vice-governors and security forces. In particular, they have developed arrested last week the Kemerovo high-ranking officials, including the chief of regional Suska and two Vice-Governor Aman Tuleev. Earlier media wrote that Feoktistov was in charge of the case of bribery in which the accused ex-Governor of Kirov region Nikita Belykh.
The war provoked a quarrel between the two socialites
“Novaya Gazeta” writes that the conflict between the two groups of security forces provoked the quarrel between the illegitimate daughter of a senior official from Kazakhstan Zhanna Kim and Moscow designer Fatima Misikova. We are talking about a shootout in December 2015 at the Korean restaurant Elements in Moscow.
By order of Kim misikova completed the design project of the restaurant Elements, but the customer refused to pay for the work. In addition to lawyers, both sides of the conflict drew to the issue of the security forces. From Kim were former intelligence officer Edward Budantsev, which, according to the newspaper, presumably, may be close friends of General Sergey Alpatov.
Misikova, which close friend and crime boss Zakhary Kalashov (Shakro Young), represented chop guarding businessman Andrei Kochanova (named Italian) from OPG Shakro.
Chopovtsy have come to meet with traumatic weapons. Between Kochanova and Budantseva had a conflict that escalated into a fight and then shooting. In the end, Budantsev killed two people and wounded another eight people. Shortly after the arrest question is interested in the head of the Department “M” FSB Alpatov, the article says. The publication does not exclude that the subsequent “crusade” against Feoktistov – Maksimenko began due to the fact that failed to get Budantseva.
After the report Bortnikov, Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation related to the conflict around the Elements restaurant, followed by arrests of people from the entourage of Bastrykin. Among the detainees were Maksimenko, Limonov and Deputy head of GSU SKR across Moscow, Denis Nikandrov. They were accused of receiving bribes from Shakro for changing charges against the Italian. As the newspaper notes, the position of the group Feoktistova, Bastrykin and Tkachev became very shaky.
The arrest of the speaker showed what a bunch Tkachev – Feoktistov – Bastrykin has retained combat capability
In summer, the head of “Rosneft” Igor Sechin appointed Oleg Feoktistov head of the security service of the company. Failed to send in the reserve and Ivan Tkachev – he was promoted and led the “K” of the FSB.
The investigative Committee in connection with all these events was certainly weakened. Bastrykin, according to sources of Novaya Gazeta, has lost access to Putin and was forced to liquidate CSS TFR, which was headed by Maksimenko. After the conflict over the Elements in SK have declared an unofficial ban on cooperation and implementation of the operational information supplied from the control “M” of the FSB, said the sources.
Thus the link Tkachev – Feoktistov – Bastrykin, losing important people, still retained combat capability. The arrest of Minister the speaker – eloquent proof, writes “Novaya Gazeta”.
According to the publication, it is important to understand that the arrest of the speaker works not only on the interests of Igor Sechin as head of Rosneft, met the resistance of the government’s economic plans for the purchase of “Bashneft”. The operation pursues at least one more important purpose: “this is “inverse” to those who launched “the case Maksimenko – Lamonova”, the article says.
The arrest of the speaker obviously again brings to the stage “disgraced” Bastrykin that achieved with the old operational resource in the face of Feoktistov and Tkachev need the leadership of the country result.
All the tasks that big arrest has been executed, the newspaper notes. First, minimized the influence of the so-called liberals in the government of Dmitry Medvedev; second, Putin again demonstrated the efficiency of the power cords SC – FSB.
In addition, if the data of the newspaper “Vedomosti” that the Putin at the meeting with head of LUKOIL Vagit Alekperov has offered him to buy a 19.5% stake in Rosneft, loyal, now the conditions that informed the owner of “LUKOIL” would find unacceptable look “like an offer that cannot be refused”. “However, in effect it is still and whether in fact, it is not known”, writes “Novaya Gazeta”.
Alexei Ulyukayev, was detained at office “Rosneft” on November 14. He is suspected of extortion and receiving a bribe of $ 2 million for the Ministry of economic development issued a positive evaluation, which allowed Rosneft to acquire state-owned shares “Bashneft”. Basmanny court of Moscow sent to speaker under house arrest until 15 January, and the President of the Russian Federation removed him from his post due to “loss of confidence”.
