KGB Press Office: Domracheva resigned almost 2 years ago


The biathlon Olympic champion Darya Domracheva resigned from the KGB almost two years ago. This was reported by the head of the KGB press service Dzmitry Pabyarzhyn on May 4th.

"Domracheva was in the KGB service until June 2014, but now Darya is an employee of the organization," said Pabyarzhyn. The KGB did not report on the reason for her leaving the position, as well as other details of the service.

The information that Domracheva worked for the KGB appeared on the site of the "Dynama" club, of which the famous biathlete was a friend. The biography of the athlete, which was placed on the site, said: "She served in the Belarus KGB, a senior lieutenant." After some time the data was erased.

The KGB press service explained that the information was removed because it was out of date "and Domracheva is no longer a member of the KGB SC."

When asked whether any of the other well-known Belarusian athletes were agency staff, Dzmitry Pabyarzhyn said: "Unfortunately, we can not distribute this information," BelaPAN reports.
