Living in Kyiv former Deputy of the state Duma Ilya Ponomarev has linked the murder of his former colleagues from the Communist Denis Boronenkov with its investigations of smuggling and FSB General Oleg Feoktistov named General Fix. He told about it on Thursday, March 23, at a joint briefing with the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko in Kiev, reports “Ukrainian truth”.
“He (Boronenkov) knew a lot about what is the most vulnerable part for the whole of the Putin government. Their financial flows”, – said Ponomarev.
Voronenkov has investigated high-profile criminal case of “Three whales” about contraband of furniture, realizovyvavshy in shopping centres “Three whales” and “Grand”. “Many generals lost their positions was a change in leadership of the customs service. This Denis has gained many enemies. These enemies were behind the attempt on him when he was in Russia”, – said the former MP.
According to him, after moving to Ukraine Voronenkov was going to work on Russian corruption cases, wanted to create a non-state centre to investigate money laundering by Russian authorities. “He was not allowed to do it, my basic version: for these are the same people, the same General Feoktistov,” – said Ponomarev.
“In addition I want to say that in Russia the FSB there are a few generals who have the right to direct the call to the Russian President Putin. Feoktistov was one of these generals. That is, a person who can report to the President through the head even the Chairman of the FSB,” he added.
Boronenkov told Feoktistov his “ordered” the investigation against the leadership of the FSB
He Boronenkov in an interview Gordonua.com said that his criminal case was not involved Vladimir Putin himself: “It not its level”.
“I ordered the General of FSB Oleg Feoktistov – explained Boronenkov. – Until recently, he headed the security service of Rosneft, where Sechin runs. My opposition to Feoktistov began in 2007 while working in the Federal service for control over drug trafficking”.
In 2004-2007 Boronenkov has been an employee of the Federal drug control service and had the rank of Colonel. He himself, in interview to the Ukrainian edition “Censor.no”, posted on 14 February, said that the Federal drug control service have fought with the smugglers and it was then that he began his “confrontation” with General Feoktistov.
Viktor Cherkesov was one of the closest associates of Putin, and Putin had instructed him to engage in the fight against smuggling. Boronenkov as a military lawyer was appointed head of the Department. “We took up the fight against smuggling very seriously, our goal was to reach those who led them. As a result of our activities was dismissed 16 generals of the FSB, as well as a number of associated prosecutors. Such cleaning of the leadership of the security forces was not even ever. And this was only the beginning, the investigation continued to move forward,” – said Boronenkov.
In one case failed to prove that “smugglers directly to the senior officials of the FSB, who delivered the goods directly to the address of his military unit”. “To earn billions of dollars for many years. We opened this channel, documented most of the leaders, put a stop to this activity. This case became known as the case of the company “Three whales”. Some Zueva drugged, taken to Germany, he rewrote the business allegedly worked as his movers Chechens, who subsequently had to rewrite the next who show. But we all dug,” – said Boronenkov.
However, to bring the investigation to the end failed. “Many of my colleagues who participated in the development, was arrested by the FSB on trumped up charges, and the DEA was, in fact, defeated.” Boronenkov, according to him, left after the resignation of the head of the service Viktor Cherkesov.
General Cherkesov in October 2007 wrote in “Kommersant” article “we Cannot allow the soldiers turned into traders” on the harmful consequences which can lead the country, the impunity of high-ranking corrupt officials. “Because of this article, he was dismissed, the Federal drug control service was liquidated,” – says ex-Deputy of the state Duma.
“And at this point it became clear that Russia chose a different course. It turned out that Putin doesn’t like it when endure dirty linen in public, if this COP comes to his closest friends, which corruption, as it turned out, allowed. In fact, a case of smuggling, the FSB has defined, in what direction will develop in Russia in the future”, – he said.
“To destroy the case against the FSB leadership, they began the persecution of drug employees. This was done by Oleg Feoktistov, chief of the sixth service of the USB of the FSB,” – said Boronenkov. “Feoktistov was given the task to deal with all the drug employees who were involved in the investigation against the leadership of the FSB. They thought I was one of the key elements of this operation.”
After that in 2007 in Central Moscow on Boronenkov was assassinated, which he also tied to the FSB General Feoktistov. “I was shot. It is in the midst of business “Three whales”. I am sure that the attack was carried out by the staff Feoktistova. I was lucky – I survived, but received bullet wounds in the legs. Endured 12 operations. Was prosecuted for attempted murder – found no one. The press also wrote “the bridge” – Yes, he was drunk, he fell, broke his leg. They have so decided. To underestimate them is absolutely impossible.”
In Ukraine, Boronenkov tried to cooperate with the security forces

He consulted with the apparatus of the security Council of Ukraine and presidential administration, and with all security services”.
