Dismissal and exposing articles

In October, 2012 the President Vladimir Putin signed the decree "About Dismissal of Staff of Bodies of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation". Among others the lieutenant general of internal service Mikhail Tyurkin holding a position of the head of the department of information technologies, communication and data protection of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was dismissed. The decree is published on the Kremlin website.

In December, 2012 the deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Khinshtein published an exposing column in the Moskovskij Komsomolets newspaper. A part it was devoted to Mikhail Tyurkin[1]:

Organized department specially under Tyurkin — such is there was a will of the minister Nurgaliyev of that time. Met with Tyurkinym Nurgaliyev, to be exact, gathered on … to ice. Being the deputy director of FMS, Tyurkin headed the hockey club of the Ministry of Internal Affairs which joined afterwards Dynamo. Several times in a week he drove a washer with the minister — for the yogi Nurgaliyev the hockey was almost religion.

Trusted relationships connected Tyurkin and with his new curator — Sergey Gerasimov. Before, when Gerasimov worked in presidential administration, they with Tyurkin were engaged in creation of passports of new generation.

Tyurkin began the reforms exactly according to the same scenario, as Nemchikov: everything that became to it — a hogwash, predecessors — entirely numskulls and swindlers. On that there was also a reason political: till 2010 InformSystem in the Ministry of Internal Affairs was engaged in creation the main enemy Nurgaliyeva — his deputy Mikhail Sukhodolsky. Any blow to it balm spilled on the minister's heart.

By the time of Tyurkin's appointment 5 years in the Ministry of Internal Affairs programs of informatization were developed. Main of them — information telecommunication system (EITKS of Department of Internal Affairs) which should connect by a single network all police divisions — from the ministry to rural department. Billions of rubles were naturally dug to the earth: to most regional departments laid lines of fiber-optic communication. In total in 2005-2011 38.7 billion rubles are spent for EITKS.

This system partially functions already now and great facilitates work of police officers. However up to the end it is not constructed: about 30% of divisions are not connected to EITKS. If in the regional centers with telecommunications everything more or less is safely, then on the earth, especially in rural areas, work in the old manner. About any access to bases of the DNA analysis or the Handwriting program the speech does not go there.

Complete start of EITKS was planned in 2012, but the general Tyurkin overset former plans. Instead of completing the work of predecessors, it arrived cardinally: crossed out all old and started with a clean slate. In July, 2011 at the initiative of Tyurkin almost implemented EITKS program was officially closed by Nurgaliyev's order.

It was in exchange announced creation of the new program: single system of information and analytical ensuring activity of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (ISOD). She, as envisioned by Tyurkin, also had to make a required technical revolution. There passed one and a half years. Does not smell of any revolution in the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Tens of departmental information resources (services on duty, finance, the right Wiki, the investigation, the personnel) work independently: they are not united in a single system and especially are not connected to EITKS. 5.8 thousand integration software and hardware complexes are not coordinated in uniform infrastructure: everyone is aloof.

Orders were placed anyhow. Here, say, electronic document management system (EDID Department of Internal Affairs). It is really necessary to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, especially administrative services: outside the XXI century, and the account to papers goes on millions here.

The most important, it also predecessors of the technical revolutionary understood: the corresponding developments began in 2007. Just by the time of Tyurkin's arrival the pilot version of the program was started in administrative department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, in 7 departments and managements it earned in the test mode.

However Tyurkin did not even begin to wait for results of trial operation: instead competitions on development of new programs and purchase of the equipment were announced. The equipment was bought without any calculations, disregarding a real picture and throughputs of communication channels. (For a system with 400 users purchased licenses in one thousand times more: on 500 thousand.)

Already then it will become clear: under the guise of new research and development of the Ministry of Internal Affairs nearly paid on the second time for old developments. Thank God, it was opened in time (case was already at Kolokoltsev) and auctions managed to cancel. 580 million rubles were saved.

Purchase of the equipment for start of the ISOD system (data processing centers, the stand of the chief designer) became top of tyurkinsky wastefulness. To the budget it cost almost 3 billion rubles.

What requires this equipment — in department of information technologies with sense cannot still explain. Without software it is dead: all the same as the computer which cannot be included. And programs both were not, and is not present. Not accidentally a year of the technician at the cost of 3 billion rubles becomes dusty not unpacked: creating government contracts, Tyurkin for some reason did not think to find in advance the space for installation.

By the time of the leaving he in all seriousness suggested to deploy the equipment on an object at the seller — Federal State Unitary Enterprise Goznak (besides that — is more than enough of the free areas in the Ministry of Internal Affairs). The cost of lease will cost the Ministry of Internal Affairs 96 million rubles in a year.

Still about the same the budget will be forced to pay for other general negligence: in January the term of warranty installation and service of the equipment expires. Now "iron" should be set for own money: and if, God forbid, some malfunctions also are opened …

The new inspections which are carried out according to Kolokoltsev's instructions opened absolutely failure picture. Reaction followed without delay: in the summer the minister disposed to cancel all earlier appointed auctions of department of information technologies. The money put under the mythical ISOD program — 5.3 billion rubles — Kolokoltsev directed to first-priority needs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (4.6 thousand cars bought in exchange will definitely not become dusty in warehouses).

And soon also resignation of the unaccomplished revolutionary Tyurkin appeared in time: 2 weeks ago the person from the outside — the former director of the large IT company Alexander Makhonov is appointed to his place.

The general is waited in the nearest future by final dismissal and trial in Investigative Committee: I am afraid only — it has nothing to be afraid of the last.

Many months in offices of ICR lie without the movement the materials about corruption sent from GUSB and the Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. I know of 5 such facts though in their reality for certain it is more. All of them would have to turn into criminal cases against the former heads of the Ministry of Internal Affairs long ago, but it, probably, is necessary for nobody.
