After the conversation with the president speaker of the lower chamber - the State Duma - Gennady Seleznyov said that Vladimir Putin, commenting on the fact of the filing of a criminal case against Aksyonenko, said that if the prosecutor's office has materials it can open a criminal case, since it is entitled to do so. As Seleznyov noted, the president also stressed that this question should " be approached seriously", because the matter concerns a Minister. On Monday the Prosecutor-General's Office said that the criminal case on the facts of the abuses in the Railways Ministry had been filed on October 9, 2001. A number of investigative actions were taken on this case, and a number of witnesses, among them six Deputy Ministers, have already been interrogated.
