A source in the Administration of the largest municipality in the Chelyabinsk Region explained why businessman Petrov had put a contract on the Head of the district and one other person.

A few days ago, Ural dove back into the criminal 90s. A notable Chelyabinsk businessman, director of the Petrov trading house, Arkady Petrov was detained and then arrested by court on suspicion of organizing contract killings.

The customer was caught red-handed when passing part of the fee to the alleged assassin. The total price for the two victims was to be 1.5 million rubles.

Petrov was charged in accordance with part 1 of Art. 30, part 3 of Art. 33 and part 2 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code, the ICR Investigative Department in the Chelyabinsk Region reported. Investigators believe that the arrested person intended to murder the Head of the Krasnoarmeyskiy district of the Chelyabinsk Region Yuri Sakulin and a businessman Dmitry Kudryashov.

The investigation is still ongoing. Law enforcers do not name the reasoning behind the contract killing, mentioning only personal animosity. However, Ura.ru quoted an informed source in the Administration of the Krasnoarmeyskiy district, reporting about a possible version of Petrov’s motives.

According to the edition, Petrov had his business mostly in Chelyabinsk, but some of his interests were also in the Krasnoarmeysky district. Living in the village of Novy, Lazurnensky rural settlement, Petrov actively was buying up agricultural units that remained after the collapse of the local agricultural enterprise; thus he obtained hundreds of hectares. Upon transfer of agricultural land in the status of settlement land, its price increases several times, a source in the regional administration noted.

This process in the regions is supervised by the Foundation to Promote the Rational Use and Development of Land. Acting with the consent of the head of the district Yuri Sakulin, the organization acts as a buffer between officials and those willing to have plots of land for construction purposes.

The edition reported that Petrov had disagreements with the management of the foundation for the amount of kickbacks for the transfer of his land in the status of settlement. Yuri Sakulin also directly refused him.

"Usually, when the land is designated for settlement, 1-2 plots out of 10 (10-15 hectares each) should be given back. In this case, given the tension between Petrov and Sakulin, they probably demanded more from the businessman," the source said.

At this time, the foundation started having problems with the supervisory authorities. The Prosecution's Office of the Krasnoarmeisky district confirmed that courts had received a lot of lawsuits for the return of illegally allocated land. An expert from All-Russia People’s Front Vitaly Voronoy states that the illegal allocation of land in the Krasnoarmeisky district was widespread. The foundation was actively involved in this scheme.

Since Petrov did not use his land for agricultural activities, according to some reports, it could be taken away from him, and the businessman failed to come to an agreement with the officials.

Petrov had connections in the criminal underworld (particularly, with the so-called regional curator Ilham Osmanov), and so, the investigators believe that he hired a hitman, a certain Sergey Pashin, who had recently been released after 14 years in prison for murder.

The edition claims that after a year-long negotiations Petrov persuaded Pashnin persuaded to accept a contract for 1.5 million rubles, with a million for an official and 500 thousand for entrepreneur (out of personal enmity). Then Petrov handed the killer a video with routes of future victims and other information about them.

After that, Pashnin turned to the police and subsequent events occurred under the control of the FSB and the Interior Ministry. On November 13, Arkady Petrov was taken into custody on charges of plotting the murder of two persons.
