It should be noted that the statement of the department does not say where the detention took place, nor did this citizen work if he worked. However, according to sources from law enforcement agencies, it became known that we are talking about the assistant to the plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Urals Federal District, Alexander Vorobyov. At the same time, Nikolai Tsukanov, plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Urals Federal District, for understandable reasons, does not want to comment on this information to the media.
Since January 2018, Vorobyov worked for Tsukanov as the head of the office of the Assistant to the President of Russia. In May 2018, Tsukanov was appointed presidential envoy to the Urals Federal District. In July 2018, Vorobyov became an assistant to the presidential envoy to the Urals Federal District.
It is specified that during the detention Vorobyev had a Polish passport and special recording equipment with him. Now the FSB is asking the court to arrest Vorobyov.
