According to Russian MP Valery Rashkin, the Federal Security Service (FSB) classified the content of the response it provided to the deputy’s request about an anti-corruption investigation of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
Rashkin explained that the FSB’s response had a stamp “for official use only”, but noted that “there was less that none useful information” in the response.
Journalists were unable to contact Rashkin in order to find out whether he intends to seek more detailed answers from the FSB.
Rashkin asked the FSB to check the information revealed by the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) in late March. The State Duma (the lower chamber of Russian parliament – RRT) refused to conduct a parliamentary investigation on this matter.
The Anti-Corruption Foundation of Aleksey Navalny told about the “secret empire” of Dmitry Medvedev. The video claims that Medvedev enjoys expensive real estate and yachts, which are owned by non-profit organizations controlled by his friends.
Medvedev said that the investigation of FBK was “nonsense”, and the documents shown are just “pieces of paper.” He did not comment on the data revealed by the investigation.
