Bloodbath in Surgut center initiated by 23 y.o.
Law enforcement officers determine whether the attacker suffered from a mental disorder. Head of the Investigative Committee of Russia Aleksandr Bastrykin has taken personal charge of the incident.
Law enforcers have identitied the person responsible for the bloodbath on one of Surgut's main streets. Turns out it is a 23-year-old young man. As Life reports, his name is Bobichel Abdurakhmanov. The investigators have requested the man's ‘characterizing materials'. In addition, the information on possible mental abnormalities that the young man suffered is currently being checked.
As previously reported by the CrimeRussia, today, August 19, a masked man attacked 7 passers-by with a knife at the intersection of Bazhov and Lenin streets at about 11:20 a.m. As a result of the attack, two people were hospitalized in serious condition, and five more sustained moderately serious injuries. They were also hospitalized.
Law enforcers who arrived at the scene fired a warning shot into the air. The offender was shot after he refused to follow the instructions of the police.
Motives for the man's actions are currently being established. As reported by Interfax’s sources, the MIA does not exclude it was a terrorist attack, but this version is not the main one.
A criminal case under part 3 of Art. 30 of the Russian Criminal Code (Attempted murder) has been initiated into the incident. Head of the Investigative Committee of Russia Aleksandr Bastrykin has taken personal charge of the investigation.
According to eyewitnesses, there were two attackers. Surgutinform has published pictures of a man being detained, but it is unknown whether he relates to the attack.

The clampdown on the ‘Baltic laundromat’ hasn’t destroyed the global cash-out market. ‘Black cash’ is still laundered at the state level. Apparently, the main money laundering hub is currently located in a small Central Asian country – Kyrgyzstan. Ethnic criminal groups operating in Russia, Europe, and Central Asia use it to legalize their shady proceeds. Revenues generated by the illegal business are estimated at $500 million per year. However, it is impossible to covertly launder money on a global scale. Is the national political establishment involved in the criminal schemes?
