Bye Andrey Kostin, approved by the parliament for his post last week, fills in the checkerboard for his inner circle, an important letter has already been sent to a number of regional departments of the prosecutor’s office. The document was signed by the head of the department for the prevention of offenses in the prosecutor’s office, who headed the commission for the internal investigation.
