Der Spiegel: Agents die alone


"The German police carried on the investigation against managers of Siemens - and it appeared in the center of race for power between the staff of the Russian intelligence agencies and special agents of the Ministry of Internal Affairs", - writes the German magazine Der Spiegel.

In August, 2012 came request for rendering legal aid from the Russian law enforcement authorities to inspection of criminal police of Kempten, journalists Juergen Dalkamp, Günter Lattsch and Jörg Schmitt narrate. "As the employee of federal management of criminal police in Moscow reported later, it was talked of export of the medical equipment of Siemens from Erlangen to Western Siberia, of doubtful intermediaries, accounts in Liechtenstein and suspicion that in transactions with Siemens were bribed of several million euros - which, among other things, arrived the United Russia party close to the president Vladimir Putin", - it is said in article.

the Russian law enforcement authorities rejected the requirement of the former business partner of Siemens Valdemar R. about that did not connect the German police to investigation. It seemed that nothing will interfere with successful cooperation between the Russian and German investigators: the intermediary gave detailed evidences and admitted bribery to the Russian officials in connection with purchase of the medical equipment of Siemens. In August, 2017 the prosecutor's office of Augsburg brought charge to Valdemar R. and eight other persons, including two managers of the Moscow branch Siemens, of bribery and evasion of taxes. However a few weeks ago proceedings were stopped: one of problems was the fact that the staff of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs initiating investigation could not be involved as witnesses.

"Reason: their division, the Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation (Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption), was FSB which is almost completely destroyed in race for power with the Russian intelligence agency", - specifies the edition.

"One of the employees interacting with criminal police of Kempten was arrested in February, 2014, another was transferred to other work. The head of the Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption Denis Sugrobov who is also arrested in February, 2014 in the 2017th was sentenced to 12 years of a high security. His deputy Boris Kolesnikov in June, 2014 dropped out of a window of the 6th floor of the building of police during interrogation. Suicide, told in police. "They killed it", - the widow at the husband's funeral said", - Der Spiegel tells.

of Investigators of the Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption was accused among other things of establishing a criminal organization for control of a part of the Russian market of the iatrotechnics. For this purpose they allegedly forced Valdemar R. to bribe the Russian officials, and then to hand over to their investigators the Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption.

"Absurd charge, - notes the edition, - bribes of which giving accused Valdemar K., took place still before the staff of anti-corruption department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs learned about the events that is confirmed by investigative documents of prosecutor's office of Augsburg. However the logic and carefully collected case papers are not аргумен
