Money on Zakharchenko case was found in Shuvalovsky Residential Complex
It has become known that MIA Colonel Zakharchenko, who was arrested yesterday, kept a currency in the amount of 8 billion rubles.
"Money has been found in an almost empty apartment in a luxury residential complex with prices for apartments making at least 20 million rubles. It appears that nobody lived there. The door has been unlocked by EMERCOM employees," said TASS's interlocutor.
According to him, Dmitry Zakharchenko is not the official owner of the apartment.
Currency in the amount exceeding 8 billion rubles has been found during searches of the officer of the MIA Department for Combatting the Corruption. Investigation is currently trying to determine the money's origin.
The Colonel is accused of abusing his official powers, bribe-taking, and obstructing of carrying out of justice.
He is involved in a number of high-profile cases, including the firing on Rochdelskaya Street when two members of the thief-in-law Shakro Molodoy's private security company were killed, and assisting in the escape of the former Head of VimpelCom Mikhail Slobodin, who is a defendant in the Renova bribery case. Yesterday it was reported that Zakharchenko received the money from Nota-Bank's top managers, who had embezzled it.
First, 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev tried to set fire to the Severny shopping center, then he began to attack the visitors with an ax and a knife, and later, after running outside, he stabbed random people in the street. Four out of the seven wounded are severely injured.
The woman said she has remained silent because she was afraid she and her daughter might have been killed. However, she decided to give the information away after the investigator who investigated the murder mysteriously died.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, which had previously approved an indictment in a high-profile bootlegging case against billionaire and Forum St Petersburg Group of Companies CEO Dmitry Mikhalchenko, is now demanding the Russian Supreme Court to change the initial jurisdiction.
