Leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia Vladimir Zhirinovsky, during the first hours of the Duma meeting, promised the United Russia (Edinaya Rossiya) party faction a speedy trial, after which his party members left the convention hall.

Vice speaker of the State Duma from United Russia Sergey Neverov reacted to Zhirinovsky's words. He demanded that the Duma commission on ethics check the words of LDPR leader, suggesting that "some lawyer gentlemen must respect our Constitution, the institution of the presumption of innocence."
Neverov added that "only the court can determine who the criminal is, otherwise we have already started talking about executions of those sitting in the hall from the rostrum of the State Duma."

“Such things distract from holidays.” Federal Antimonopoly Service vs. Governor Boris Dubrovsky and his heir
A conflict between the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) and Governor Boris Dubrovsky is escalating in the Chelyabinsk region. The local FAS branch started wondering why most profitable governmental contracts are awarded to companies belonging to miraculously successful businessman Aleksander Dubrovsky. The federal FAS headquarters instituted a case against the Governor. In response, a large-scale smear company targeting the head of the regional FAS branch and involving the Federal Security Service (FSB) of the Russian Federation and law enforcement structures has been launched in the region. However, there are grounds for believing that the recent events in Chelyabinsk are just yet another episode in the ongoing war between the clans of Igor Sechin and Yuri Chaika. Would Boris Dubrovsky and his son fall victims to that confrontation? Or the business of the Governor’s son is going to continue flourishing on budget funds?
In 2015, the members of the organized crime group were acquitted by the Moscow Regional Military Court, however, subsequently, the sentence was revoked by the Supreme Court, and the case was joined with that related to two other members of the gang.
