Can Russian law enforcement punish negligent parents from abroad? The problem of foreign citizens adopting Russian orphans is widely discussed. The arguments are crimes committed against Russian children in the United States. The Russia’s Investigative Committee undertakes its own investigation into those incidents. How? Senior Investigator of the Russia’s Investigative Committee Andrei Petrikov told about that in the interview to KP.
As Kommersant has learned, yesterday the Russia’s Investigative Committee (SKR) forwarded to prosecutor’s office a criminal case against Vyacheslav Dudka, former governor of Tula Region. He and ex-director of Tula Region Department of Property and Land Relationships Viktor Volkov are charged with taking a bribe. The court will listen to the case in 2013 and in accordance with recent amendments to law the case will be listened to by not the jury, as the Dudka’s defense were counting for, but by a judge of Sovetsky district of Tula, from whom they expect “nothing good”.
In the beginning was the word carved in granite, by which the prime Minister characterized actions of employees of the Investigative Committee, who had raided the flat of Pavel Kostomarov, director of documentary “Term”, during the investigation of Bolotnaya case. And though the word was uttered after the interview on TV and can’t be considered official, the answer was not only official, but defiant: Head of Media Relations Directorate, Major General of Justice Vladimir Markin stood up for honor and dignity of law enforcement.

Yesterday the Russia’s Investigative Committee (SKR) reported that it had prepared a request to be sent to Georgia asking to explain the role of its former minister Givi Targamadze in organizing mass riots that had taken place on Bolotnaya Square in Moscow on 6 June 2012. Investigators have reasons to assume that Mr. Targamadze not only funded some of opposition leaders: records of his negotiations, distributed all over media, show that he even suggested how to stimulate the homeless around the venues of mass riots and when to offer them strong drinks.
