FSB car knocks down traffic police officer to death in Moscow centre
According to eyewitnesses, an unidentified man twisted the numbers from the Mercedes, which he had previously tried to hide with a rag.
The Mercedes S-class car with governmental numbers A896RM97, assigned to the FSB, according to media, shot down a traffic policeman at a huge speed. The accident occurred at the intersection of Novy Arbat and Sadovoe Ring on September 25 at 10 p.m. The car was driven at a speed of 120 kph along the lane divider, although there were no objective reasons for this. According to eyewitnesses, there were no traffic jams on Novy Arbat at that time, and the driver simply decided to take advantage of his road privileges.
The driver drove at high speed - the police officer did not have a chance to survive a collision with the car. The doctors who arrived at the scene of the accident, tried to help him, but it was too late.
As for the behavior of the driver of an elite foreign car, he stopped about 50 meters from the hit inspector. According to eyewitnesses, an unidentified man twisted the numbers from the Mercedes, which he had previously tried to hide with a rag.
The place of the tragedy, as the eyewitness of the incident told, was quickly cordoned off; six traffic police and two police cars arrived, as well as one more car with the numbers of the government series A848MR97. His driver briefly communicated with the officers of the Traffic Police, then quickly left. At the same time, the police actively pushed journalists away from the scene of the accident and made it impossible to film something.
It is noteworthy that, according to the law, officials and security officials have not been allowed to buy Mercedes cars for many years, but governmental numbers can often be seen on foreign cars of the latest models.
Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
