Russian President Sacks 6 Drug Police Generals, 1 Colonel

MOSCOW, February 11 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed six generals and one colonel from the Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) on Monday, following a minor scandal that unfolded last week.

The FSKN press service said the dismissals, enacted by presidential decree, were part of a routine personnel rotation, and played down media speculation linking them to recent allegations of bribery and drug use in the service.

“All personnel changes are connected to the rotation of top executive personnel at drug-control agencies,” the FSKN press service said in a statement.

According to the press service, the officials – all of them heads or deputy heads of major FSKN subdivisions – have been dismissed because they had reached retirement age or the end of their contracts, had worked long enough to be eligible for early retirement or had been transferred to another government job.

Russia Appeals ECHR Ruling on Ex-Yukos Security Chief Case

MOSCOW, February 11 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian government has challenged the European Court of Human Rights’ ruling that there were procedural violations in the trial of former Yukos security chief Alexei Pichugin, who was sentenced to life in prison on murder charges, his lawyer Ksenia Kostromina said on Monday.

On October 23, 2012, the ECHR partially granted Pichugin’s petition and awarded him €6,500 (about $8,400) in compensation for moral damages and €3,000 ($3,900) for legal expenses. Pichugin had claimed €170,000 (about $222,000) in expenses and €20,000 ($26,000) in other damages.

“I have received a letter from the ECHR, saying that Russia has appealed this ruling with the [ECHR] Grand Chamber. The appeal came on January 22,” Kostromina told the Rapsi legal and judicial news agency.

Moldova Looks Into Possible Russian Money Laundering Scheme

CHISINAU, February 11 (RIA Novosti) – Moldovan Prime Minister Vladimir Filat has sent a letter to the country’s law-enforcement agencies, asking them to keep him informed of a probe into suspected Russian money laundering through Moldova’s state-controlled Banca de Economii, the government’s press office reported on Monday.

The Moldovan authorities launched an investigation after UK-based investment firm Hermitage Capital sent a letter to the National Anti-Corruption Center in June, saying Russian officials had laundered 5.4 billion rubles ($180 million) of stolen tax money through Banca de Economii in 2008.

Man Charged with Promoting Terror After Petersburg Swoop

MOSCOW, February 11 (RIA Novosti) – One man was reported charged on Monday with promoting terrorism and at least seven others were deported from among the 300 people held after a police swoop in St. Petersburg on Friday.

Masked police raided Islamic prayer rooms in St. Petersburg’s downtown historic Apraksin Dvor market and several apartments around Russia’s second-largest city, seizing suspected extremist material.

Among those held was Murat Sarbashev, 34, from Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, suspected of distributing extremist literature online between 2010 and 2011 and posting videos of terrorist attacks. He was arrested and charged on Monday with inciting hatred and terrorism-related charges, St. Petersburg-based Fontanka.Ru news site reported.

Death penalty restoration in RF not at issue - Kremlin



MOSCOW, February 11 (Itar-Tass) – The issue of the restoration of capital punishment in Russia “is not discussed in practical terms, a source in the RF Presidential Administration told Itar-Tass.

“We do not comment on statements made by Kolokoltsev, the more so that the interior minister said that it was his personal opinion,” said the source.

“However, we stress that this issue is not discussed in practical terms,” he stated.

On Sunday, RF Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev in an interview with the NTV Itogovaya (week’s news digest) program called for the return of death penalty for those who committed inhuman and brutal crimes.

Russia introduces lie-detector tests for police applicants

Following a string of scandals, the interior minister has ordered that anyone who wants to join the police in Russia should undergo a polygraph test for illegal drug use.

The order, published on the Interior Ministry’s website, reads that the test will be done with the applicant’s written consent, submitted with the request to join the police force.

The test should detect possible abuse of alcohol, illegal drugs or any psychotropic substances. According to the procedure, the applicant receives the questions before the actual test and reserves the right to stop the questioning at any moment. The test results are classified and remain in archives for six months.

The results of the test are then forwarded to the psychological selection commission that must approve or reject the candidacy. Rejected candidates have the right to appeal.

Test drive: Kremlin security service to buy hi-tech mobile sniffer laboratory

Russia’s Federal Protective Service (FSO), which guards top state officials, will purchase a state-of-the-art minibus crammed with equipment capable of immediately testing air, soil and water for almost any kind of poisoning or contamination.

It is expected that the high-tech laboratory-on-wheels will cost FSO some 45 million rubles (US$1.5 million), writes Izvestia daily.

The vehicle, a Volkswagen Crafter, with an extended body will look nondescript on the outside as all its expensive equipment will be placed inside the van, behind the driver’s seat.

The list of devices includes spectrometers for identification of toxic chemicals, unknown liquids, or detection of nerve agents, mercury and radiation. The purity of air inside the car will be provided by a filtration system.

Several computers with special software installed will control the work of the hi-tech equipment.

Besides that, the FSO is going supply their super-vehicle with protective suits, smoke masks, fire-extinguishers, and backpack units for spraying liquids. The latter are used for the detoxification of nerve gases or in cases of biological contamination.

Countering extremists key task for law enforcers – Putin

Political competition is an invariable condition for the development of the state, but it should be organized within the framework of law while every “extremist trick” must be punished, says President Vladimir Putin.

Activities of extremist organizations must be “most categorically suppressed,” he underlined during a collegium meeting at the Interior Ministry on Friday.

Addressing the participants, Putin said the immediate reaction should follow any manifestations of extremism, “be they coming from fans, nationalistic or radical opposing groups.”

He reminded that Russia has been reforming its political system and creating conditions for active political activities and competition.

2 Sverdlovsk region policemen sentenced for negligence


YEKATERINBURG, February 12 (Itar-Tass) - The Verkhnyaya Pyshma court in the Sverdlovsk region passed guilty verdicts on Tuesday for police officers Sergei Zinovyev and Vadim Zainiyev, accused of negligence that resulted in a mass fight in the village of Sagra. Zinovyev was sentenced to three years and two months in prison and Zainiyev to ten months of community work. Ten 10 percent of Zainiyev's salary will be deducted to the budget. Also, both were banned from taking jobs at government bodies for three years, the Court's press service told Itar-Tass.

The prosecutor for the state had demanded that Zinovyev be sentenced to 5 years and 3 months, and Zainiyev to 1 year of community work.

The armed conflict broke out as a result of lax control by the local police chief over his subordinates' work, district police officer Zainiyev and public security department head Zinovyev. Specifically, their checks for compliance with registration and firearms keeping rules by Sagra residents had been careless. Some of the firearms were used in mass disturbances, the investigators said.

'Russian Romeo' steals girlfriend from psych ward, sues mother for forced hospitalization

A young man shot his way out of a Moscow mental institution in a bid to 'rescue' his pregnant girlfriend. The pair turned themselves in on the second day of a police search – both to confess, and to sue the girl's mother.

*The assault, they claimed, was a desperate move to free the woman from the horrors of the mental ward and the imposed effects of heavy medication. They claimed the hospitalization was forced, and orchestrated by the woman's mother. The couple has already been dubbed the 'Russian Romeo and Juliet,' and their story is being closely watched by a fascinated public.

It began on February 12, when three men broke into a Moscow psychiatric hospital and 'kidnapped' 32 year-old Anna Pavlenkova. They fired into the air with kinetic guns and used pepper spray against the guard as he tried to stop them. The attackers retreated into a Nissan and took off, taking the girl with them. The police failed to find them for two days, before both Anna and her rescuer-boyfriend came out to tell their story, accompanied by a lawyer.
