The Moscow city court until July 19 left in jail the head of management of own security (USB) SK of the Russian Federation Mikhail Maksimenko, who is accused of receiving bribes from crime boss Zakhary Kalashov (Shakro Young), the correspondent of RIA Novosti news from the courtroom.

«The decision to extend the measure of restraint in form of detention remain unchanged» — announced the decision of the judge. Thus, it dismissed the appeal by his lawyer Andrey Grivtsov. Earlier, the court also dismissed the appeal against the extension of term of arrest of his Deputy Alexander Limonova.

The lawyer assured the judge that his client will not even try to hinder the investigation. «He was interrogated about ten times, gives explanations for all questions answered in detail,» said Grivtsov. According to him, the health Maksimenko «raises serious concerns». «Once he was hospitalized in very serious condition. I fear that he may again fall into the same condition. He complains of headaches and lack of sleep,» said defender and asked to change the measure of restraint on house arrest, because he was near the Investigative Department of the FSB of Russia.

«Half a year before the arrest I knew against me are carried out quickly-search actions, but took no action to stop them. I am interested in an objective investigation», — said Maksimenko to the judge.

The investigator of the FSB, in turn, strongly objected to the release of the accused. «He has extensive connections, including with persons from the criminal environment. He can influence his subordinates, can get information about the planned investigative actions», — he said.
