Businessman shot in south-west of Moscow
The body of 46-year-old entrepreneur Vladimir Uvarov was found in a rented apartment in the south-west of Moscow in the morning of October 13.
According to the Telegram channel 112, the man was killed with two gunshots to the abdomen and head. Police officers and the apartment owner found his body after the deceased man's daughter reported he had been out of communication for two days. At the same time, the door to the apartment was closed. The neighbors questioned by law enforcers could not tell anything, as no one has seen or heard anything.
According to Senior Assistant to Head of the ICR Main Investigations Directorate in Moscow Yulia Ivanova, investigative bodies have initiated a criminal case based on the elements of crime provided for in part 1 of Art. 105 (Murder) and part 1 of Art. 222 (Illegal Arms Trafficking).
Law enforcers are conducting a set of investigative and field investigation measures aimed at search and detention of persons involved in committing the crime.
112 notes that 46-year-old Vladimir Uvarov was not a large businessman. He was engaged in the supply of canned olives.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
