Prosecutor's Office establishes motive behind Penitentiary Service officer’s murder
According to law enforcers, a workplace conflict was the motive behind the attack.
A workplace conflict involving the deputy chief for housing development in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region became the motive behind the murder of Penitentiary Service lieutenant colonel, the regional prosecutor's office said.
The officer was attacked on March 2 at Koltushskoye Highway’s kilometer 8. Chernov was driving a Nissan X-Trail towards his country house. Before turning to Staraya village of the Vsevolozhsky district, he pulled over, and a certain Sabir Sadykov got into his car. They had a conversation, then Sadykov took out a gun and emptied a whole clip into the lieutenant colonel. When other policemen found their associate dying, the killer said he was a witness. In a testimony he said he saw a Lada Samara driving away to send the investigation in the wrong direction. However, the detectives did not consider his version plausible enough and arrested him before putting him in custody. When interrogated, Sadykov named the person behind the murder: Sergey Moyseenko, the deputy chief for housing development of the local Penitentiary Service, who was detained the same evening.
The murdered man had reported to Moyseenko. They had often had conflicts over Kresty-2 construction. Chernov had been refusing to sign a number of important documents saying they had shortcomings and flaws. That was why the senior official decided to kill his subordinate and involved Sadykov, who was one of his acquaintances. The local Investigative Committee initiated proceedings under Art. 30 and Art. 105 of the Criminal Code (Attempted Murder). Upon Chernov's death, the article will be re-qualified into Art. 105 of the Criminal Code (Murder). The prosecutor's office has started working on the case.
Nonexistent road. Driveway to school belonging to Sberbank CEO’s wife concealed from Moscow residents
A driveway to a private school has been laid through the yards of Wellton Park residential complex despite protests of its residents. However, officials in the Construction Department somehow believe that there is no road there yet. They claim that the ‘future’ road would provide access to the new perinatal center, school, and homes – while at this point, a contractor has been just selected and permission documentation is in preparation. The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
The presidential election scheduled for March 18 should be held as a holiday - the Kremlin gave such order to the regions. The Presidential Administration expects that the festive atmosphere at polling stations will increase the turnout, sources told RBC.
