The chief of one of divisions of FSB Colonel Cyril Cherkalin was accused of receiving bribes in the amount of 850 thousand dollars (about 55 million). On Thursday, may 16, with reference to the materials of the case reports TASS.
The materials were read by Oleg Moskvitin — a judge of the Moscow district military court (MOVS), which examines the complaint officer Cherkalin for his arrest. According to the judge, a bribe 850 thousand dollars Cherkalin received from the head of a commercial firm for General support in the period from 2012 to 2015.
April 26 it was reported that the case against three colonels of the FSB — head of the 2nd Department of the “K” Department Cyril Cherkalin, as well as former employees of the division (Colonel in reserve) Dmitry Frolov and Andrey Vasilyev, relates to the case against former Deputy mayor Alexander Ryabinin, who was convicted for fraud and dismissed in 2012.
All three colonels are suspected of fraud in especially large size: Cherkalin — in bribes in tens of millions of rubles, and the former employees of the “K” Frolov and Vasiliev — misappropriation of shares in a large Moscow company.
During searches in the office and at home Cherkalin seized a large sum of money, collections of watches and jewelry. “Maybe this will be the second Zakharchenko,” — said a source familiar with the situation. The Colonel of the Ministry of internal Affairs of Dmitry Zakharchenko during a search of the apartment found 8.5 billion rubles in the currency.
