“Maria Pevchikh was different from other employees of the foundation.

She is an extremely private person.

Most of them didn't even know what she was doing.

She appeared at work irregularly, sporadically, "Serukanov said in an interview with RT. 

He spoke of the Singers, "as a person who brought some information." 

"Such a British" auditor "of Navalny's investigations, - explained the ex-FBK lawyer.

- I noticed that Navalny and Alburov (an employee of the FBK investigation department -


) communicated with her as an equal, as a partner.

It was not communication between superiors and subordinates. " 

Serukanov noted that neither he himself nor most of the FBK employees knew what the Singers were doing in the fund.

He also spoke about the role of the Singers in the story with Navalny.

In particular, he commented on reports that it was she who took out the bottles of water that were in the hotel in Tomsk, where Navalny lived.

“It turns out that she knew what things needed to be collected and taken out, what things might turn out to be evidence.

At the same time, she realized that as soon as this evidence was in Germany, the Russian side would never be able to get it, ”Serukanov expressed his opinion.

Earlier, the transport department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Siberian Federal District reported that 200 people were interviewed as part of a pre-investigation check on the incident with Navalny.

Navalny was hospitalized on August 20 in Omsk after he fell ill on the plane from Tomsk to Moscow.

Later he was transported by plane to Germany.

According to the investigation, on August 22, Pevchikh, who accompanied Navalny on a trip to Tomsk, flew to Germany.
