Eduard Budantsev, accused of killing two officers of the private security firm, was released on written undertaking not to leave the place.⁠

One of the main defendants in the case of a shootout at Elements restaurant on Rochdelskaya street in Moscow, the former KGB officer and the former commander of Russian Special Police Force in Moscow, Eduard Budantsev was released on written undertaking not to leave the place. The lawyer of Zakhar Kalashov Aleksandr Gofshtein told that, reported Interfax.

Recall that the shootout occurred on December 14, 2015 when people of the kingpin Shakro Molodoy came to demand for repayment the debt of 8 million rubles from the owner of the restaurant Elements Joanna Kim. Officers of Kalashov's private security firm, headed by Andrey Kochuykov (the Italian) insisted that a multimillion-dollar debt was given them by the designer Fatima Misikova. Also bandits demanded to rewrite them the restaurant, if Joanne Kim refused to return the money.

The lawyer Eduard Budantsev came to defend interests of the Elements's owner. After a verbal altercation a fight started that escalated into a gunfight.

As a result, two people were killed and 6 were wounded. It is known that people of Shakro Molodoy were armed only with traumatic weapons, while Budantsev used firearms.

Recall that on December 18, 2015 it became known that the Presnensky Court of Moscow placed Budantsev under house arrest for the murder of two or more persons (part 2, Art. 105 of the Criminal Code) at the request of MID ICR in Moscow. The Italian, charged with Hooliganism (Art. 213 of the Criminal Code) was in the pre-trial detention center.
