ST. PETERSBURG, December 11 (RAPSI, Mikhail Telekhov) – Ex-chief of a regional office of the defunct Federal Drug Control Service Kirill Kalinin has been sentenced to 7 years in a high-security prison for extortion of a 10-million-ruble (about $170,000) bribe, the Unified press office of St. Petersburg courts has told RAPSI.

Kalinin has been also found guilty of provocation of a drug deal.

Three former subordinates of Kalinin have also received terms in a high-security prison. Yevgeny Zhileykin has been sentenced to 4 years, Alexey Amirov has received 3.5 years, and Vasily Belikov has been given 3 years. One more defendant has been acquitted, the statement reads.

According to investigators, the defendants have extorted 10 million rubles from an individual suspected of buying about 100 grams of cocaine from Kalinin instead of attending to arrest him. However, the men failed to execute their plan because they were arrested.
