Accusations of pedophilia against Novichok creator pasted up on streets of Anapa
The police interrogated the chemist and took his fingerprints.
In Anapa, unknown people pasted leaflets with a photo of one of the Novichok gas developers, Vladimir Uglev, accusing him of pedophilia. Three policemen came to the scientist's apartment. Without any witnesses, they took pictures of his housing and looked through the data on Uglev's computer and tablet. The next day he was taken to the police station, where his fingerprints were taken. He was also asked general questions, BBC reports.
“I took the first ad from the doors of the office where I work and crumpled it.
On the leaflets, an anonymous author printed Uglev’s photograph with the signature “know the pedophile in person” and his personal data: name, date of birth and exact address. It was also indicated there that “Uncle Vova” “meets children near schools, gives toys”, “writes to them on VKontakte, asks to send candid photos.”
The ICR did not receive any materials regarding Uglev.
Vladimir Ulev gave several interviews about his work on Novichok after Skripals’ poisoning in Salisbury in March 2018. In April, the chemist was hit by a 70-year-old pensioner, who allegedly did not notice the pedestrian.
It concerns entrepreneur Dmitry Motorin, Boris Usherovich, a co-owner of the Group of Companies 1520, and Novoe Vremya board member, Ivan Stankevich. Motorin is accused of giving a bribe on an especially large scale, and Stankevich and Usherovich are charged with bribe-taking.
This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
