Director of confectionery factory Menshevik Iliya Averianov - who had been arrested on accusation of murder - has attempted to commit suicide, reports 112 Telegram channel.
The businessman was in a remand prison #4. Now, he has been taken to the resuscitation department. According to the channel, he has incised wounds to the lower tighs.
Averianov had earlier put up a fight with his cell mate. The public monitoring commission reported the director of the confectionery factory had been placed in a cell along with 3 other arrested persons accused of murders, as well. Domestic conflict erupted between the factory’s director and one of them - a Chechen. The latter offered Averianov to sweep up in the cell on his own and refused to keep the place clean.
Representatives of the public monitoring commission reported Averianov had had his face smashed, bruises under both eyes, blunt traumas to the head. However, the factory’s director stated he had received the traumas due to falling from his cell’s bed.
Averianov did the shooting at the confectionery factory Menshevik in late December, last year. He killed a guard. The businessman stated he had made up his mind for a desperate move, as members of a certain organized crime group - including employees of Moscow law enforcement - took the enterprise from him by force.
The intel scandal involving Oleg Smolenkov, who had access to the Kremlin and possessed valuable information, has become a widely discussed topic. It was CNN who reported, citing sources in the CIA and Donald Trump administration, on the “informant” being evacuated from Russia in 2017. It turned out that for certain people in Russia, the spy’s disappearance was not a secret, while the Russian elite denied the fact of espionage in unison with the American one. The Smolenkov family was forced to leave their luxurious mansion in Virginia, and their current whereabouts are unknown. Smolenkov’s “patron,” Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation for the International Sector Yury Ushakov, continues to fulfill his duties. The CrimeRussia looked into the story of “exfiltration” of the top informant and the possible consequences of his work as an intelligencer.
