Hungary arrests man who hired killer for Russian gangster businessman Brudny
Aleksandr Gebert had been in the international search for three years. His accomplices are already serving their sentences for the crime.
Hungary law enforcement authorities arrested another mastermind behind the murder of Volgograd gangster businessman Sergei Brudny.
36-year-old Aleksandr Gebert had been in the international search for three years. In 2014, right after he committed the crime, Gebert fled to Turkey and there had been no information on his whereabouts until today.
Hungary law enforcement authorities arrested the fugitive in the city of Kiskunhalas, when he was trying to get a political asylum on a false Estonian passport.
Currently, the issue of whether Aleksandr Gebert should be extradited is being considered.
As The CrimeRussia reported previously, the high-profile crime was committed on May 21, 2014 in downtown Volgograd. The hitman shot Sergei Brudny, who had been a cofounder of Traktorozavodskiy, Voroshilovsky and Tsentralny markets and his fellow businessman Yevgeny Remizov. Having hit both, the hitman fled. A few hours later Brudny died in hospital while Remizov miraculously survived. According to our sources, the two businessmen had been associated with Volgograd’s shadow Governor Vladimir Kadin killed in 2011. The investigation established that the murder had been masterminded as a part of a business turf war.
Meanwhile, Aleksandr Gebert’s accomplices are already serving their sentences. In July 2015 the court found local criminal lord Alietdin Makhmudov (aka Ali), guilty of organizing the crime. Ali was sentenced to 17.5 years in prison. Hasu Batalov, who was the hitman, was jailed for 16 years, and Abugali Temerhanov, an intermediary, got a 17-year imprisonment.
The court appointed oppositionist Alexey Navalny 20-day arrest immediately after doing another term. During the hearing, he promised to respond to the director of Rosgvardiya after watching his challenge to a duel.
“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
