Crocus City oceanarium CEO shot with TT pistol, investigators say
Six 7.62 mm cases were found near the place where Director General and co-owner of the Crocus City oceanarium Andrey Chernov was killed.
The hitman might have used a TT pistol, according to a police source, as quoted by the RIA Novosti news agency. This information is being checked.
To recall, the Mash community reported that the hitman shot Andrey Chernov with an AK rifle during a morning jog. The report was made yesterday. The community might have been confused by reports of 7.62 mm cartridges caliber being used by the hitman; both TT and early version of AK use this caliber. However, AK and TT’s cartilages have different length (25 and 39 mm, respectively) and look differently.
May we remind you that 53-year-old businessman Andrey Chernov was shot dead in the Suvorovsky park in the west of Moscow on August 4. The ICR Main Investigations Directorate opened a murder and arms trafficking case yesterday.
Investigators have several leads as to why Chernov might have been killed, according to the committee’s announcement. The investigators do not have CCTV footage or eyewitnesses at the moment, as reported earlier.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
