"It was a targeted killing": ICR checks powerlifter Drachev's murderer for involvement in other crimes
The investigation into the high-profile murder of the world champion is ongoing. Given the reputation and family ties of Anar Allakhveranov, whose elder brother is serving a sentence for a similar crime on the grounds of extortion, new episodes may emerge in the case. The family of Andrey Drachev and his lawyers are positive – the killing was no accident.
Lawyer of former Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh, Andrey Grokhotov reported that his client needs to be transferred from the pre-trial detention center to the Matrosskaya Tishina hospital due to poor health.
The video shows the second episode of the fight between the powerlifter and Anar Allakhveranov, during which the murderer dealt a series of crushing blows, deliberately bludgeoning the world champion without letting him recover. According to the regional leadership of the National Guard of Russia, that same video denies the inaction allegations filed against soldiers of the National Guard.
Earlier, Deputy Head of the State Duma Rules Committee Mikhail Romanov noted that to avoid a conflict of interest when considering Poklonskaya's declaration, the committee would be headed by its first deputy, but the situation came to an easier resolution.
