Shakro Molodoy and Italian did not admit their guilt in court
Besides, Zakhar Kalashov rejected charges of being in charge for a common fund.
Defendants in the case over extortion of 8 million rubles ($137 thousand) Zakhar Kalashov, famous as ‘code-bound criminal’ Shakro Molodoy (Shakro the Young) and criminal authority Andrey Kochuykov, known as Italiyanets (Italian), did not admit their guilt during the court session.
“The charge is clear to me, I do not admit the guilt,” the Moskva Agency quotes Shakro Molodoy.
In his turn, Kochuykov said: “The charge is clear to me. Do I admit my guilt? It is as if I was suggested to change my orientation.”
As it was reported earlier, on Tuesday, October 10, the court started considering the case over extortion concerning 14 defendants, including Kalashov and Kochuykov. Two of the defendants in the case died during the firefight on Rochdelskaya Street. The others 11 are in a pre-trial detention center, one of them, ex-employee of General Administration of Personnel Safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs colonel Evgeny Surzhikov working in Kochuykov’s private security company (PSC), is under house arrest.
The defendants are accused of two episodes of extortion - from director of Elements restaurant Zhanna Kim and businessman Lev Garamov. According to the investigation, the episodes are united by the fact that they worked under the supervision of Shakro Molodoy.
In particular, as the CrimeRussia wrote earlier, the charge assumes that the ‘code-bound criminal’ has created Zashchitnik security company which performed the function of cover for criminal activity which was conducted by the criminal leader Andrey Kochuykov and the staff of the security company. It is supposed that the Italian headed PSC according to Kalashov's instructions.
Nonexistent road. Driveway to school belonging to Sberbank CEO’s wife concealed from Moscow residents
A driveway to a private school has been laid through the yards of Wellton Park residential complex despite protests of its residents. However, officials in the Construction Department somehow believe that there is no road there yet. They claim that the ‘future’ road would provide access to the new perinatal center, school, and homes – while at this point, a contractor has been just selected and permission documentation is in preparation. The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
