Previously, he explained in different ways why he has started shooting at the ceiling of the hotel room in the middle of the night.

Chechen millionaire Umar Dzhabrailov, who started the shooting at a Moscow hotel, is to undergo a psychiatric examination, TASS learned about this from a source in law enforcement agencies. However, the lawyer of the millionaire Alexander Karabanov refused to give any comments.

Overnight into August 30, Dzhabrailov started shooting in the room of Four Seasons hotel in the center of Moscow. He explained his actions in different ways. According to one data, the businessman started shooting at the ceiling after dinner had been brought to him by a cleaning lady, not by a waiter. Representatives of Dzhabrailov said that the fire had been opened by chance: allegedly he was checking a gun that he could not use. He himself said that the hotel management and the security service had provoked him to take up arms. According to the businessman, he was trying to "survive". But Dzhabrailov did not disclose the reasons for the conflict with the hotel staff calling the motive of the disagreements "odious".

"Their disgraceful behavior towards me and my guests drove me crazy. I thought a bit about the war at that moment. The concussion worked. Then, when I realized [what was happening], I immediately discharged the clip, and began to wait in the room when they would come for me. I understood everything perfectly," the ex-Senator explained his actions.

But after that, Dzhabrailov changed his testimony. He claimed that he had opened fire because of unsuccessful negotiations in the name of charity with "some businessmen". The ex-senator did not specify the names of entrepreneurs who were present at the meeting.

A criminal case was opened under Art. 213 of the Criminal Code (Hooliganism) against the businessman. Subsequently, Dzhabrailov was released on a recognizance not to leave the place. The accused gave the police a document confirming the right to store and carry a Yarygin combat pistol, but the Interior Ministry stated that Dzhabrailov had not been awarded the weapon. According to some information, it was the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov who awarded Dzhabrailov, part of his network, with the pistol. And later the award weapon was checked through the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
