Let us recall that the tragedy took place on the night of December 11 in Smyshlyaevka village of the Volga district, the Samara region.
According to preliminary investigation, upon returning to their house on December 11, Chief of Otradny MIA Office Dmitry Vashurkin and his wife Ekaterina found four masked men, who started brutally beating them right away. The police officer regained consciousness in the morning, informing his colleagues about the incident. His wife died. Dmitry Vashurkin is currently in intensive care. His condition is serious.
Operative workers continue working at the scene. The case investigation is subject to special scrutiny by the regional ICR Department. Russian Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev has seconded officers of the Main Administration of Criminal Search to the Samara region to assist in the investigation.
Private game reserves became a bon ton among Russian politicians and businessmen. A couple of years ago, the Law On Hunting has been significantly amended and it became virtually impossible to join the privileged ‘hunters club’. So, who managed to acquire personal hunting lands and how much it costs?
This is stated in the indictment of the Prosecutor's Office. The defense of the ex-Minister asked to return the case to the supervisory authority, as the factual allegations changed, but the court refused to do so.
