MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. Head of the presidential Human Rights Council Mikhail Fedotov called for publishing of pictures, video and audio recordings related to the charges with bribe-taking presented to former Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev.

On the sidelines of the All-Russian Civil Forum, he told reporters he was shocked by the news about Ulyukayev’s arrest.

"It shocked me, I could not imagine it," he said, adding he knew Ulyukayev as a very experienced and serious economist, state official.

"I simply cannot believe it is possible, but in this sphere no beliefs should be of importance, in this sphere facts matter," he said. "We have not seen facts, I would like to have those facts presented, those video recordings, all scripts, audio are published - the society has the right to know."

The human rights official said under the regulations, all this information is secret. "It should be declassified," he said.

Ulyukayev was detained on November 14 the moment he received a $2-million bribe in exchange for the Economic Development Ministry’s consent to give a go-ahead to the oil major Rosneft’s acquisition of a 50.08% stake in another oil company, Bashneft, and was put under house arrest. President Vladimir Putin on November 15 dismissed Ulyukayev from his ministerial job citing loss of confidence.
