Balladeer Don Polyakov suspected of abducting crime boss Yury Vasilenko
Two alleged abductors of the crime lord have already been detained.
Operatives are looking for a popular balladeer from Kursk Dmitry Polyakov, known by the stage name Don Polyakov. He is suspected of abducting the crime boss Yury Vasilenko - one of the main defendants of the cases of the murders of former State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov and the leader of the Oplot party Yevgeny Zhilin.
Earlier, as part of the investigation into the abduction of Vasilenko, officers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the FSB have already detained members of one of the Kursk criminal groups, Alexander Soshnikov, and a member of Mazutkinskaya gang Vladimir Taymankin, a law enforcement source told Rosbalt.
The third alleged attacker was Dmitry Polyakov. In addition, two more people are sought-after within the framework of the case.
According to the source, during interrogations, the detained kidnappers “cast the blame on accomplices who have not yet been caught,” and in every possible way reduce their role in the crime. The detainees did not give testimony about the fate of the kidnapped, however, according to operational data, he died from injury received. Body is not found yet.
According to the investigation, one of the attackers could have been involved in the murder of Yevgeny Zhilin. Vasilenko himself was previously associated with them, but subsequently their relationship deteriorated due to financial differences.
To recap, Vasilenko was abducted on January 10 on Prospekt Mira. After talking near Bazilik cafe, unknown persons shot at him, then put him in the trunk of a car and disappeared.
