The leader of the Podolsk organized crime group Sergey Lalakin (Luchok) has a longtime friend and business partner, the Tula oligarch, the owner of ShchekinoAzot OJSC, Boris Sokol. According to the telegram channel of the VChK-OGPU, Sokol organized its security at the highest level. Now he works with the former head of the FSB department in the Tula region Vladimir Lebedev (pictured) and the former deputy chief of the FSB department, Yevgeny Biryukov. The latter was forced to leave his post as he ended up in a clan that had lost the garbage war. And the winner was Igor Chaika, whose father was then still the head of the Prosecutor General's Office.

According to the source of, from the time of Lebedev and until his dismissal in 2011, the main extra-budgetary treasurer of the Tula UFSB was Alexander Sorokin,

After the arrival of Vladimir Gruzdev in 2011 as a governor in the Tula region, his long-time assistants from the former employees of the “A” department of the Central Security Service of the FSB - Viktor Trifonov, the former chief physical education officer of the Alpha center, and Petr Koshelnikov, a former employee of the sniper department, pulled him into the regional administration.

According to sources, both of these characters became frequent guests, both within the walls of the Tula FSB department, and at informal events with the participation of local Chekists. The chairman of the regional government, Yuri Andrianov, did not disdain visiting these parties, who, due to his life experience, knew very well that he needed to immediately "make friends" with local counterintelligence officers. In the process of these informal gatherings, UFSB officer Alexander Sorokin was able to establish close contacts with the new governor's team.

General Evgeny Matveev, who came to the place of the head of the local FSB in 2011, was a representative of the “Moscow” clan of the FSB, and spoke very ambiguously about the activities of his predecessor; by the way, he “helped” Sorokin to retire.

However, he, using the established connections, immediately got a job as head of the control department of the regional administration. Having come to the government, Sorokin further strengthened his relations with Andrianov, becoming his right hand.

In 2012, after a prolonged conflict with the new head of the department, Sorokin's friend was retired, the head of the department for combating terrorism and protecting the constitutional order Anatoly Simonov, who was able to be attached first as a federal inspector, and then in 2015 and the chief federal inspector for Tula area of ​​the office of the plenipotentiary representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Central Federal District.

According to his position, the chief federal inspector of the region is the deputy chairman of the qualification commission of judges of the Tula region, which gave the friendly company of former Chekists another serious lever of pressure on the judiciary.

It is worth noting that the chairman of the Tula regional court Ryabtsov, according to the source of, having the corresponding bias, also regularly visited informal gatherings of the Tula security forces. Not having practical judicial experience, but having the correct Petersburg origin, he, not having examined a single case, immediately took the post of chairman of the Novgorod Regional Court, and then moved to Tula. Since he appeared at work from Tuesday to Thursday at best, I devote most of my time to building my family nest in the Leningrad Region, the main affairs with the regional court were carried out by his deputies, who needed an eye and an eye.

After his retirement, Sorokin handed over the reins of "extrabudgetary funding" to Yevgeny Biryukov, who, as the head of the department responsible for counterintelligence support for state authorities and law enforcement agencies, was one of the main executors of measures to replenish the department's off-budget budget. Biryukov did not shy away from personally going to the prevention of presumptuous entrepreneurs. For example, the story is widely known when Biryukov, in order to assist the famous Tula businessman Rafik Popyan, who was under the roof of the office, came to the office of the Tula division of Samvel Karapetyan's company (owner of the Tashir Group of Companies) for a showdown.
