‘Woman with balls’: executive-board member orders murder of ex-deputy minister of housing and public utilities in Moscow region
The detainee Elena Dodurova was a holder of treasury of a local mafia.
It was a banker Elena Dodurova who ordered murder of Evgeny Kharitonov, an ex-deputy minister of housing and public utilities in Moscow region. MK found out that Dodurova is known within certain circles as a ’woman with balls’.
According to the investigation, Dodurova promised a perpetrator of the murder 3.5 million rubles ($53 thousand). However, operatives of Moscow criminal investigation department learnt about the preparation for the crime. Then, it was decided to stage the murder. On February 26, the woman transferred a 50 thousand rubles ($758) deposit to the alleged perpetrator in a Vermel cafe located on Raushskaya embankment.
After the alleged killer met Dodurova and gave her photos of the allegedly murdered ex-official, the woman was detained.
Interestingly, Evgeny Kharitonov was recently released from prison himself. In 2015, he was sentenced to 7 years for organization of murder of a member of Lipetsk municipal government representing the United Russia party - Mikhail Pakhomov. The parliamentarian was cruelly manhandled and rolled up in a barrel of cement. The massacre was caused by a 85 million rubles ($1.2 million) debt the deputy had not allegedly paid off.
As for Elena Dodurova, she was an executive-board member at Moscow mortgage bank once owned by a gang of financiers headed by a former minister of finance in Moscow region Aleksey Kuznetsov who is at the present time a defendant in a criminal case. It was the bank encashment of shadow resources was being carried out through. In 2009, the bank went bankrupt. Later, in 2015, the Deposit Insurance Agency won a 2.2 billion rubles ($33.3 million) payout against executives of the credit agency through arbitration court. This debt is still on Dodurova, according to the Federal Bailiff Service.
Besides that, it is known that a while back, Elena refused to leave (along with her father and underage daughter) an apartment with an area of 128 square meters in a district of Khamovniki that she had sold. The purchaser managed to sue her out. “Woman with balls,” this is what Dodurova was called by participants of the trial.
