    Mash wrote that Demkin Jr. left Russia in March 2022.

    Demkin Sr. told reporters that he realizes " “I take full responsibility for my son’s statement,” so I thought it was right to write a statement of my own free will. He also thanked his “colleagues from the government for the valuable experience of working together.”
