One of the most high-profile crimes of recent weeks was the death in SIZO No. 5 of Vladimir Evdokimov, executive director for quality and reliability control of Roskosmos. He was found with stab wounds in the toilet of the cell. According to Rucriminal.com, Evdokimov's death came at a time when he was thinking about how to start cooperating with the investigation. And then a lot of other notable persons, including United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), could go to the SIZO.
Evdokimov's body was found on the night of March 18 in the toilet of Chamber No. 600 with several stab wounds. The examination showed that the wound in the chest area of Evdokimov was very shallow (less than 2 cm). There is still next to the main wound on the carotid artery (it turned out to be fatal) on the neck a few scratches. The investigation initiated the case under Article 105 of the Criminal Code (murder), but does not hide that it is a formality. When the hype is settled, what happened will be recognized as a suicide: allegedly Evdokimov brought scores to life. Only how much will this solution correspond to the truth? To understand the situation, let's talk about the alignment of forces around Evdokimov and who would have had a hard time if he had spoken.
Vladimir Evdokimov, executive director for quality and reliability control of Roskosmos, was arrested in December 2016. He is accused of being a Deputy Director of the Department of OJSC United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) in 2007-2009, participated in frauds with the supply of equipment to OJSC "Russian Aircraft Corporation (RAC) MiG." As a result of the substitution of expensive components for cheap figurants of the case, according to the version of the TFR, kidnapped at least 200 million rubles.
In addition to Yevdokimov, the former director of ZAO Scientific and Technical Center Alexander Zolin, the former general director of MiG-Rost (the daughter of the RSK MiG, liquidated in 2012), Alexey Ozerov and the ex-general director of OAO " Helicopter service company "Akim Noskov and his deputy Alexei Andreev. Lord Ozerov, Andreev and brother of Mr. Noskov, deputy director of PJSC "Tupolev" Yegor Noskov, are the defendants of another high-profile case - the theft in the early 2000s of real estate that belonged at that time RAC MiG.
All these people are closely connected with one person - the first vice president of the UAC, Alexander Tulyakov. And Evdokimov in general was always considered the most trusted person of Tulyakov. Everyone knew that whatever the Evdokimov did, Tulyakov is behind this.
Tulyakov, in turn, also has a reliable rear. This is his close friend and curator - the Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov. It is Manturov Tulyakov is obliged to "jump" on the career ladder and a high-ranking position in the UAC. At one time in one of the special services joked that Tulyakov is the right hand of Manturov, and Evdokimov is a "glove" on this hand, which considers money.
And now the "glove" was in jail. And even in December, the investigator did not hide that Yevdokimov's arrest was "aimed" at Tulyakov, and maybe even higher. Who knows where the "paths" of the investigation will lead.
Evdokimov denied the blame after the arrest, did not give testimony to anyone and very much hoped that the patrons would soon pull him out. However, in February, after spending three months in jail, Yevdokimov's behavior came "a turning point". He realized that no one would pull him out, and in case of further silence, he would be recognized as the organizer of a scam for a huge sum. And accordingly will receive the maximum term. According to sources Rucriminal.com, Evdokimov began to think about how to start cooperating with the investigation, discussed this possibility with operatives. Over Tulyakov and those to whom the "paths" of the investigation may lead, a very specific threat looms.
And then the following happens. The top manager of Roskosmos was kept in cell No. 500, designed for four people. This is a kind of VIP-camera, equipped with a video surveillance system. And it contained the same VIP-persons as Evdokimov. Then, suddenly, he was transferred to cell No. 600 for 12 people, not only those involved in economic crimes, but also, for example, a man arrested for drug smuggling. There are no video surveillance systems in the cell. And literally a short time after the "transplant" Evdokimov find his corpse with stab wounds. None of the cellmates saw anything. More Evdokimov will never speak. Here themselves, and draw conclusions: this is murder or suicide. And what the investigation decided, we already know.
