All animals are equal, but some are more equal, or how selectively investigative bodies approach the investigation of crimes of obstruction to the work of the commission. An example from Krasnodarsk region, where there is a team, FSB search measures, evidence revealing testimonies, videos and photographs, but no criminal case.
