Career notes: New Interior Minister; famous as founder of RUBOP (also known as RUOP), the much-feared organized crime police, created in 1991...His anti-gangster force was widely considered to be the city's most fearsome gang, about whom it was said: "The only gang scarier than Solntsevo is Shabolovka (RUBOP was located on Ulitsa Shabolovka)"...Credited with great success in buying back hostages in Chechnya, although detractors claim that only his close links with the Chechen mob allowed for such success...Under his direction, even FSB and MVD chiefs were barred from visiting RUOP offices without a RUOP chaperone... Owns dacha next to Boris Berezovsky crony/ORT director Badar Patarkatsishvili.
