Head of Police in Russia “Falls” from Sixth Floor Balcony

From Echo Moskvy

The Major General of the Interior Ministry Boris Kolesnikov has fallen from the 6th floor of the Investigative Committee building

The official story is that it was suicide. However, the wife of the former vice-president of the anticorruption department of the Interior Ministry believes he was killed. Muscovite lawyer Mikhail Trepashkin believes that the blame lies with his security detail’s negligence.

According to the lawyer, the unscrupulous law enforcement agents could be brought to trial. The Investigative Committee have begun an investigation.

We add that Boris Kolesnikov, who was accused of taking bribes, was one of the youngest Interior Ministry generals. He was only 36 when he was arrested.

    The guy had two assassination attempts against him earlier foiled by London police and UK intelligence. His friend, also someone who was critical of Putin, did die in a uraniam poisoning incident.
