Kursk trace. One of abductors of Ukrainian crime boss Yury Vasilenko detained in Moscow
So far, nothing is known about the fate of Vasilenko himself.
Police officers detained a suspect in the kidnapping of crime boss Yury Vasilenko, who is considered one of the organizers of the murder of ex-State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov in Kiev.
The suspect turned out to be a 35-year-old unemployed resident of Kursk, reports Moskovsky Komsomolets. The detention was carried out with the participation of law enforcement agencies and FSB staff of the Kursk region. A preventive measure in the form of arrest has been chosen for him.
To recap, Vasilenko was abducted on January 10 on Prospekt Mira. After a talk by Bazilik cafe, unknown persons shot at him, then put him in the trunk of a car and disappeared.
Soon there was information that the traces of the kidnappers should be sought among the representatives of the underworld of the Kursk region. It was with them that Vasilenko had close ties in Russia, and even, according to a Rosbalt's source, with some of them he participated in the attack on Yevgeny Zhilin, the leader of the Oplot party.
Later, Vasilenko had disagreements with the Kurskiye because of financial issues.
In addition, it is known that a week before the abduction, Vasilenko offered one of the major representatives of the Russian mafia to meet. However, the crime boss ignored it.
