On the night of March 4, law enforcement agencies conducted searches in the building of the Sakhalin Oblast government. As a result, the head of the region, his assistant Boris Usacheva and adviser Andrei Ikramov were sent to Moscow “to carry out further investigative actions” to be carried out in Moscow by the Investigative Committee of Russia.

According to a source in the regional authorities, searches were conducted not only in the offices of the head of the region and his team, but also in the governor’s apartment.
