Former Deputy Prime Minister of Dagestan Aliev states that Abdulatipov did not exert pressure on him
The official assures that he independently decided to purchase ten armored limousines for the Head of the republic.
Former First Deputy Prime Minister of Dagestan Ramazan Aliev said he gave the order to tend the state limousine on which Ramazan Abdulatipov moved. At the same time, he assures that he acted under pressureless conditions.
At the same time the nephew of Abdulatipov, who is also arrested in the investigation, assures that their family owns this car now.
According to Aliev, he was approached by the chief of the administration of the Dagestani Head, certain Yasulov, who said that the garage of the government did not have an armored car to transport the ‘first person’ of the republic. Aliev decided to register Mercedes, on which Abdulatipov drove along the city.
"This decision was made by me independently, neither the Head of the republic nor anyone else gave me such an order," Aliev said at the interrogation, stressing that he was worried only about the security of the Head of the region.
Aliev also wished to repair the damage, which, according to the investigation, is estimated at 14.1 million rubles ($224.400).
At the same time, Abdulatipov's nephew, who was in charge of the FSUE Avtohozyaistvo, Askhabali Abdulatipov said that there were ten armored vehicles in the file - Mercedes Benz S600 and nine Toyota Land Cruiser. It was enough for uncle's transportation. According to Askhabali, he merely carried out the corresponding order of Aliev.

The high-profile shootout in Oko Tower in November 2017 – at least, 40 gunshots were fired there – has led to unexpected consequences a year later. Seven high-ranked investigators of the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) have submitted a collective resignation letter, and the inquest into the incident in Moscow City International Business Center was resumed. In fact, this chain of events resembles another firefight that had occurred in 2015 near Elements Restaurant on Rochdelskaya street, Moscow and also resulted in a number of high-profile criminal cases against senior ICR officials and incarceration of ‘thief № 1’ Shakro Molodoy.
