Basta’s nightclub prosecuted for selling drugs
A sting operation was carried out in Gazgolder.
A person who came to Gazgolder, the club in the heart of Moscow co-owned by the rapper Basta, has been charged with drug trafficking, RIA Novosti reported citing a source.
The operation was conducted on Nizhny Susalny Lane back on September 9.
"An unidentified person committed an illegal sale of a substance weighing 1.13 grams. An expertise revealed that it contained a narcotic drug, mephedrone, for which it is a considerable amount," the source said.
On Monday, a case was brought under Art. 228 of the Criminal Code (illegal sale of drugs).
According to open sources, Gazgolder belongs to a production center under the same name, and Vasily Vakulenko aka Basta is one of its owners.
In 2016, the media reported there had been searches in Gazgolder and drugs were found. However, Basta commented on the news replying to CrimeRussia’s tweet and said the reports were "sheer nonsense."
Windows and glass doors of the educational institution were broken. Many students tried to escape through windows. The Polytechnic College doorkeeper said that it took the ambulance very long to arrive.
Shortly before the attack on his college, Roslyakov purchased an inexpensive Turkish rifle - Khatsan ESCORT. In order to fire 70 shots from this riffle, the murderer - as it had been calculated earlier - had had to shoot non-stop or had accomplices, experts believe.
