Russian Colonel leading investigations against opposition figure Navalny promoted

In a significant development, Colonel Roman Vidyukov, a key investigator overseeing critical matters and a political opponent involved in cases against Alexey Navalny, has been promoted to a higher position.

Former director of the Anti-Corruption Foundation, Ivan Jdanov, shared on his Telegram channel, SIA reports citing Russian media.

Vidyukov, previously the chief investigator against Navalny, has now assumed the role of Deputy Chief of the Main Investigation Department. Jdanov shared a document with Vidyukov's signature officially announcing this promotion.

It is noteworthy that Vidyukov spearheaded investigations into Navalny's embezzlement case and other high-profile inquiries, including those involving former Minister of Economic Development Alexey Ulyukayev, the former head of Moscow region's Serpukhov district, Aleksandr Shestun, and others.

In 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin honored Vidyukov with the second-degree "For Service to the Fatherland" order, as reported by the "Dozhd" TV channel.

In another development on February 20, Putin conferred the rank of General-Colonel to Valeri Boyarinev, the first deputy director of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service. Boyarinev received this title just three days after the sudden death of Navalny in Correctional Colony No. 3 in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

Stay tuned for more updates on this evolving situation.
