Tolkachev Konstantin Borisovich: compromising evidence
Biography policy constantly attracted the attention of various media. Among journalists there were also those who tried to denigrate Tolkachev, often at the request of rival detractors.
In August 2013, video information obtained using a hidden camera was shown by the Bashmedia news agency.
In this story, a person who looks like Arsen Nuridzhanov (head of BashDomKom, a former candidate for Kurultay RB, nominated by the United Russia party), talks about an attempt to replace him with Anatoly Dubovsky, a member of the public chamber. Dubovsky has support from the speaker of the State Assembly - Kurultay RB Konstantin Tolkachev.
The story mentions that earlier during a hunt in the Tuymazy district of Tolkachev a man was allegedly shot by chance. This was covered up, according to a video participant, by Anas Khasanov, the then Minister of the Interior of Bashkortostan.
Dubovsky allegedly knows this information, but is silent about it, so Tolkachev has to "work it out".
Statements in the video "Bashmedia"
The hero of the video, resembling the head of BashDomKom, states that he intends to refuse to participate in the election campaign for ten million rubles (the plot was taken before Nurijdanov was excluded from the list of proposed candidates for the Kurultay Republic of Belarus), and for BashDomKom’s work on RPNU "should pay fifty million rubles."
A man on the video also stated that they paid five million for obtaining a deputy mandate. According to him, Khamitov was not allowed to hold early presidential elections, and he wrote a letter of resignation. The latter allegedly suffered a "destruction of the psycho-emotional system."
Reaction to a compromising video
The head of the press service of the State Assembly (Kurultay of the Republic of Belarus) Ilgiz Abdullin did not give any comments on this video. He said that he did not even intend to watch this video, much less comment.
At the same Nuridzhanov Arsen also failed to get comments from any of the media correspondents.
Soon the video was removed from all sites where it was previously posted, including from YouTube. On March 19, 2014, the Kirovsky District Court of Ufa decided on the outcome of the case concerning the protection of honor, dignity, and business reputation, based on a lawsuit filed by Arsen Nurijanov against Mukhamedyarov Albert and his news agency Bashmedia.
The court decision partially satisfied the claim.
