Federal Security Service (FSB) colonel Kirill Cherkalin, who leads the second branch of the agency’s K division, has been charged with taking a bribe in the amount of $850,000.

Moscow District military judge Oleg Moskvitin announced the charges while considering a petition to jail Cherkalin while he awaits trial. Moskvitin said Cherkalin allegedly received the bribe from a commercial firm in exchange for providing protection from 2012 to 2015. The judge ruled that Cherkalin should remain under guard in the near term.
