MOSCOW, March 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin fired deputy head of the Interior Ministry's Main Department for Economic Security and Combating Corruption Maj.-Gen. Boris Kolesnikov, who is suspected of provoking a bribe.

The presidential decree was placed on the Kremlin website. In late February, Moscow's Basmanny court placed Kolesnikov under arrest until April 14.

According to the case materials read in court, at least eight people are suspects in the case over provoking a bribe for a Federal Security Service agent. Of those, six are officers of the Main Department for Economic Security and Combating Corruption. Other suspects' names are Ivan Kosourov and Alexei Bodnar who are deputy directors of the watchdog's Department "B", and senior detectives of Office 28 of the same department Sergei Borisovsky and Mikhail Nazarov.

The investigator said all the suspects had been placed under arrest and charged with "provoking a bribe," "faking evidence" and exceeding authority which resulted in grave consequences." Two civilians, arrested as suspects and identified by their last names — Chukhliyev and Pirodkov — are under house arrest.
