In 2010, the prosecutor's office in the Republic of Bashkortostan found that few officials received land for a lease for almost nothing. Among them was Azat Rysmukhametov, deputy head of the Oktyabrsky Interdistrict Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee under the Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation. As a result of the investigation of this case, 12 defendants were virtually not punished, they were only forced to return the seized land to the state.
In 2018, Rysmukhametov led an investigation of the libel case, instituted at the request of the GBU Ritual (funeral service) after the publication of the article Black Diggers of Graves by the Daily Storm. A report by journalist Ilya Yushkov described corruption in the Russian funeral services business. Rysmukhametov signed a search order in the editorial office of the Daily Storm.
In July 2019, Azat Rysmukhametov interrogated and searched one of the opposition figures, Dmitry Gudkov, an unregistered candidate for elections to the Moscow City Duma. He also called for questioning Elena Rusakova, chairman of the Council of Deputies of the Gagarinsky District, another unregistered candidate for the Moscow City Duma from the opposition Yabloko party.
Azat Rysmukhametov is part of the Moscow Case Investigation Team, the criminal prosecution of opposition activists who protested in July-August 2019 against the prohibition of independent candidates from running in elections for the Moscow City Duma. The peaceful protest on July 27 was brutally dispersed by the police and the Russian Guard, almost 2 thousand people were detained. Authorities called the protest “rioting” despite the absence of real signs of such and instituted a few dozen criminal cases against opposition activists.
