FBK director Ivan Zhdanov said that his father Yuri Zhdanov, who is in the colony, is going to tighten the conditions of detention – the reason for this was a planted blade.
“Have you ever found a blade in your pillowcase? And it turns out that it happens. Here, in the colony, they put a blade in a pillowcase for my father, in the prison jargon “washing”. He found this sink himself, fortunately. And immediately threw it away. But the one who planted this sink, of course, did not think that the father would find this crap himself and throw it away. But imagine, a report on the discovery of the blade has already been drawn up. Only there is no blade. But is it the scoundrels who cares? — wrote Ivan Zhdanov. He also added that his father is “philosophical” about it. Later it became known that Yuri Zhdanov was sent to a punishment cell.
Zhdanov Sr. is in correctional colony No. 14 of the Arkhangelsk region. In December 2021, he was given a three-year suspended sentence, having been found guilty in the case of fraud (Part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code) and official forgery (Article 292 of the Criminal Code). Later, in February 2022, Zhdanov Sr.'s sentence was toughened, appointing three years of real life.
According to the investigation, in 2019, when Zhdanov Sr. worked in the housing commission in the village of Iskateley, Nenets Autonomous District, he advised the head of administration to allocate an apartment under a social tenancy agreement to deputy Yulia Vetrova. At the same time, the investigation claimed, Vetrova had previously received subsidies for housing. The damage from the transfer of real estate was estimated at 2.5 million rubles.
Ivan Zhdanov himself believes that the persecution of his father is connected with the activities of the FBK. “I have no doubt that this criminal case is connected with me and with what I am doing,” the opposition leader reported.
