Now everyone is asking the question - who is the employee of the Internal Security Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, who should have discovered in time the golden toilets of the head of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Stavropol Territory, Alexei Safonov. The answer to this question was published by the telegram channel VChK-OGPU - this is the former head of the internal security department of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the North Caucasus Federal District, Major General Demyan Laptev. Despite the fact that at the end of 2019 Laptev left for Tomsk, since he was appointed head of the Internal Affairs Directorate for the Tomsk Region, he supervised the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Stavropol Territory at the very moment when corruption in the traffic police of the Stavropol Territory was at its zenith. Laptev often visited the necessary chief of the regional traffic police, Safonov, saw a golden toilet bowl and this did not raise any questions from him, as an employee of his own security. Laptev's place of service was in Yessentuki, in the same place where the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia for the North Caucasus Federal District is located, which is now investigating a criminal case against Safonov and his subordinate. It is very ironic that it was Laptev who lobbied for the appointment of his friend and fellow student at the Academy of Management of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, General Sergei Shchetkin, to the post of chief of the Central Internal Affairs Directorate for the Stavropol Territory, and he (Laptev) persuaded Shchetkin to sign an exceptionally positive characteristic on Safonov when extending his powers, for that Shchetkin was immediately dismissed by the Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev.
Sources of Rucriminal.info told about interesting facts related to the Stavropol octopus. Alexei Safonov did not create a corrupt octopus, he only smoothly picked up the monetary vertical, built for decades by the former head of the traffic police of the Stavropol Territory, Boris Bulgakov. Today the said leader has billions of dollars in cash, land, and various assets. The built palaces, against the background of car dealerships, shopping centers, as well as their own MREO in Stavropol and Lermontov, look harmonious.
It was under Boris Bulgakov that they imposed a tribute on all freight carriers and put on the conveyor the receipt of corruption proceeds and their laundering. Until now, the Bulgakov family has extensive connections among law enforcement officers and owns dozens of real estate properties. But the most interesting thing in the family business is who Bulgakov's nephew has become, who previously served as a simple traffic cop for him. This is none other than the former head of the Kavkaz State Security Service, Major General Laptev, it was under his patronage that the mafia in uniform became completely untouchable because the Bulgakov-Laptev family controlled all the performers. Bulgakov, through his colleagues, controlled the performers, and Laptev, who was called upon to identify criminals in uniform, covered them from their Moscow colleagues.
On June 4, 2019, the whole country learned that the FSB and officers of the Internal Security Service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs detained a criminal group consisting of traffic police officers for the KBR. Earlier, arrests were planned in the Stavropol Territory, but Laptev at that moment the head of the GUSB Kavkaz managed to direct the anger of his Moscow colleagues to the neighboring region and thus saved Safonov's group from arrest.
