The Investigative Committee of Russian Federation (Russian: Следственный комитет Российской Федерации) is the main federal investigating authority in Russia, formed in place of the Investigative Committee of Prosecutor General of Russia. it began to operate on January 15, 2011. The Committee is subordinate to the President of Russia. Sometimes this service is described as the "Russian FBI".

In January 21, 2011, Acting Chairman of the Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, was appointed by decree of the President of the Russian Federation to the Chairman of the Russian Investigative Committee.

In 2012 the Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev begun to discuss the possibility of the creation of the Federal Anti-Corruption Bureau (Russian: федеральное бюро по борьбе с коррупцией) under the Investigative Committee, as part of the campaign against the corruption and to combat against the corruption in the Russian Police.

However, 2012 has in many ways seen the Investigative Committee instead emerge as the key institution combating the rise of anti-government protests.[1]

According to the 2012 Law on Amendments to some Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation in connection with improving the structure of Preliminary Investigation, it will expand to 60,000 staff, largely by taking over most of the investigators of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Federal Drug Control Service.[2]
