Pop stars deny participation in party at Moscow City, which turned into massacre
Data about the star guests were in the program book found at the scene.
Stars of show business deny their participation in a party at the Crystal Ball Room restaurant in the Oko tower of the Moscow City complex, where shooting, in which several people were injured, took place the day before. Despite these statements, the program book, which was found on the scene, indicated that many pop stars visited this party. Among them: Valery Meladze, Grigory Leps, Lyubov Uspenskaya, Circus du Soleil, as well as other less known creative teams. There is information that Valdis Pelsh was supposed to be the host of the event.
However, Valdis Pelsh refused to comment on this situation.
"I do not give comments, especially on the phone," Pelsh said.
Concert directors of Meladze and Leps also refused to comment.
Only Lubov Uspenskaya has confirmed her invitation. She told reporters that she decided not to come to the restaurant immediately, as she heard that there was a shooting.
Recall that a fight with shooting occurred in the Crystal Ball Room restaurant in the Oko tower of the Moscow City complex in the evening of November 17. The incident began with the fact that the expensive Mercedes Maybach of Yushvayev drove straight to the red carpet. The guards of the businessman ignored the request to re-park the car and became instigators of the conflict.
During the conflict, which turned into a bloody shootout, six guards were injured, including two employees of FSUE Okhrana of National Guard, who su[ervised the car of Intourist-Holding Company and accidentally ended up in the parking lot during the conflict. According to other sources, the National Guard officers were engaged in the protection of one of the leaders of Izmailovskaya gang Dmitry Pavlov, nicknamed Pavlik, who celebrated the anniversary at the restaurant.
At the moment, this case is transferred to the Directorate for Investigating Priority Cases of the ICR Capital Board.
The ICR has reported on solving the murder of Ilya Pichko, who had been due to testify in the high-profile case of smuggling at the hearing on December 18. The search for the head of Yugo-Vostochnaya Torgovaya Kompaniya began after he failed to appear at the hearing scheduled for December 11.
