The more so, Yevkurov continued, that we “have the understanding and help from the prosecutor, the investigating authorities and the Interior department for the North Caucasus Federal District.” According to him, this work is carried out in close contact with the management of the country’s Pension Fund.
“Today, two teams are working: the Investigation Committee (SK) - with the leadership of the Pension Fund office in the Republic of Ingushetia and the Investigation Department – with the executive staff of the Pension Fund’s office,” Yevkurov said.
Yevkurov also said that due to citizens’ complaints as early as 2010 he requested the leadership of the Russian Pension Fund to replace the head of the Fund’s office in the Republic of Ingushetia.

This work, Yevkurov said, exposed numerous violations, including among officials of the RF Pension Fund office in the Republic of Ingushetia.
