Court arrested both accused in murder of investigator Shishkina
The investigation called the minor the instigator of the crime.
The Basmanny District Court of Moscow arrested until May 7, the 18-year-old St. Petersburg resident Abdulaziz Abdulazizov and the 17-year-old Kirill Grunsky on charges of involvement in the murder of MIA investigator Yevgenia Shishkina. The investigators accused the senior of encroaching on the life of the investigator (Art. 295 of the Russian Criminal Code) and illegal trafficking of weapons (part 1 of Art. 222), and the younger one of inciting murder (part 4 of Art. 33 – Art. 295).
The election of a preventive measure for the accused was held behind closed doors at the request of the prosecutor. The investigating authorities establish the identity of the customer of the murder.
Abdulazizov and Grunsky were detained on March 7. The accused deny blame. According to Abdulazizov, he traveled to Moscow for a concert. School friends of the student described the accused positively and doubted his involvement in the crime.
In St. Petersburg, two suspects in the murder of police investigator Yevgenia Shishkina in the Moscow region in October 2018 have been arrested.

Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
