Foreign fans rent rooms in non-existent Nizhny Novgorod hotel
Law enforcement agencies have already initiated a check into this fact.
Foreign fans who had come to Russia for the world football championship have fallen victims to scammers by booking rooms in a non-existent hotel in Nizhny Novgorod, the press service of the region’s Department of Tourism Development reports.
Information about the incident appeared earlier in social networks, where it concerned several tourists from Sweden and Argentina.
They booked rooms at the Savinn Hotel, which allegedly was located on Alekseevskaya Street in the heart of the city. But when the fans arrived in the city, they did not find a hotel with such a name at the specified address. It is specified that when booking the rooms, they used one of the international reservation systems.
The regional department explained that foreigners were assisted in selecting alternative accommodation options.
To recall, four matches of the world football championship, which takes place in Russia from June 14 to July 15, are held in Nizhny Novgorod.
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.
