According to Kolesznyov, Dercox was hired in 2016 and has personally served under the high leadership of the GRU. According to the report, one of the private security companies specifically set up by the MB was supported by Russian public servants. GRU has set aside $ 3-4 million every few months to implement its plans. “As test items show, a significant portion of that money went into Dercox’s pocket,” the report said.
