The Podolsk investigator, who was driving his Porsche off-road vehicle yesterday when he knocked down a 79-year-old woman in the Polivanovo village, has been dismissed from the internal affairs, reported the press service of the MIA Main Directorate for the Moscow region. The regional department of the Investigative Committee announced that a criminal case against the former police officer has been initiated based on the results of the preliminary inspection.
In addition, the immediate superiors of the policeman were brought to strict disciplinary responsibility.
As the CrimeRussia previously reported, the accident occurred the other night, on July 2, on Bogorodskaya Street in the village of Polivanovo. According to the press service of the MIA Main Directorate for the Moscow region, the investigator in a Porsche knocked down a pensioner, who was walking along the edge of the road. After the accident, Andrey Vinogradov fled the scene. Witnesses of the accident called an ambulance for the elderly woman. The victim was hospitalized with injuries of varying severity. The eyewitnesses claim that the Porsche Cayenne was moving along the village street at a high speed. According to neighbors, one can regularly see Vinogradov doing "high-speed racing around the village."
According to the Mash public page, at the time of the accident Andrey Vinogradov was in a state of intoxication: 1.3 per mille alcohol was found in his blood.

A 50-meter-high mural on a residential building in the Zhulebino district of Moscow caused a scandal in the final days of the world championship. Social networks and the media were outraged by a giant portrait of the wife of Ivan Panteleev, owner of Novatek Art – the company retained by the Moscow government to produce the fresco painting. Critics accuse him of monopolization of the legal street art market in Moscow and corruption ties with the Mayor’s Office, while the businessman claims that the competitors are just jealous of his success. The CrimeRussia decided to find out who is right and wrong in this situation.
