Chichvarkin Video to Medvdev on MVD Corruption

Something to keep an eye on over the next several days. A personal address to Pres. Medvedev from exiled businessman and former Evroset owner Evgeniy Chichvarkin. In the video (below with English subtitles), he accuses structures and gangs within the MVD of conducting criminal raids and attacks on his businesses (including the infamous 2006 seizure of Motorola handsets bound for Russia). Chichvarkin is kind of a legend in Russia – ‘self-made’ minigarch/oligarch by Russian business standards, he grew Evroset to become one of Russia’s largest mobile handset retailers/distributors. He is perhaps most famous for the successful use of ‘edgy’ ad campaigns.
