It was revealed unexpected lie.
Passengers on the back seat of the car in which the President of Russia Vladimir Putin arrived to the Transfiguration monastery on Valaam island, could not be a security officer, was on the backseat of the car, and was dressed in bright clothes.
“It was hardly a security officer. This is the simplest explanation that may be voiced. Protocol the security officer should never sit in the back: it should be near the protected person, preferably in front, so that if necessary his movements were not constrained. They must be ready immediately to jump out, start shooting back, close to the body of the protected” – said major-General FSO, retired Boris Ratnikov.
According to him, most likely, it was the person with whom Putin had to talk. But in order not to give unnecessary explanations, it was called “muscle guy”.
According to Ratnikova, the fact that the Russian President was riding in the front seat and he was driving is a violation of Protocol.
“Here we can assume, for example, that it was the diver in the wetsuit, which Balaam would have to escort the boat with the President. Comes to mind this version, although it is hypothetical. You need to understand that bright red costume immediately draws attention to itself — so the man was ready to what is invisible, he will not,” said intelligence historian Oleg Hlobustov.
