Senior Investigator of the Chertanovsky Interdistrict Investigation Department of the Main Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia in Moscow.
FADEEV, Vladimir Vladimirovich was the Senior Investigator in the Investigation Department for the city of Krasnogorsk of the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia in the Moscow Region in 2012. Currently, he is the Senior Investigator of the Chertanovsky Interdistrict Investigation Department of the Main Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia in Moscow, captain of justice.
Carrying out political repression using his official position.
Investigator Fadeev became one of several investigators from the Bolotnaya Square case who joined the investigation team of the July 27, 2019 ‘mass riots’ case, also known and the Moscow Case. His repeated participation in the exercising of political repression allows us to talk about him as an instrument of dictatorship and the suppression of freedom of assembly.
In 2012, as a senior investigator in the investigation department in Krasnogorsk, Moscow Region, he joined the expanded investigative group of the Bolotnaya Square case and, in particular, led the case of Denis Lutskevich, who was accused of using violence against a government official. Lutskevich was found on video footage next to one of the few police officers who actually got injured. However, it was impossible to determine the role of Lutskevich in the episode from this video, and the investigation fabricated evidence against him with the help of testimonies repeating each other verbatim. Besides, the investigators trumped up the episode with the tug of a policeman’s helmet. The defense found a video from a different angle, showing that Lutskevich did not touch his helmet, but, on the contrary, he was beaten by the police. However, this had little effect on the course of the investigation, and Lutskevich was sentenced to 3.5 years in a penal colony. The ECHR found Russia guilty of violating the rights of Lutskevich, declared by the articles 3 (prohibition of torture), 5 (personal freedom and integrity), 10 (freedom of speech), 11 (right to peaceful assembly) and 18 (limits on the use of restrictions on rights) of the European Convention.
As part of the investigation group in the Moscow Case, investigator Fadeev noted a motion to arrest activist Daniil Konon, a collector of voters’ signatures from the campaign headquarters of the candidate Ivan Zhdanov. The propaganda channel REN-TV called him one of the ‘coordinators of the riots’. At the court session, Fadeev reprimanded Konon's mother for his son’s participation in the rally, and after the session, he promised her that her son will spend at least a month behind the bars. On September 3, as a result of a wave of public pressure, the Investigative Committee announced that Konon’s criminal prosecution was terminated due to ‘lack of corpus delicti’.
