"I’m not giving in without a fight." Chechen millionaire Dzhabrailov detained downtown Moscow: update
According to the media, the businessman was detained and taken to Kitay-gorod PD. A hooliganism case has been initiated.
Details of the high-profile incident that occurred at the Four Seasons Hotel downtown Moscow have been revealed. Umar Dzhabrailov, a businessman and a former Chechen Senator, started a random shooting in hotel room shouting: “I’m not giving in without a fight” to the policemen who arrived in time.
According to RBC sources, the cops came to the scene of the incident on a call from the hotel security guards that had reported that one of the guests in room 633 fired a gun. It was Dzhabrailov who opened the door to the law enforcers, gun in hands. When asked to put it down, the businessman replied: "I’m not giving in without a fight."
Nevertheless, Umar Dzhabrailov was detained and taken to Kitay-gorod PD where he still is.
According to some reports, Dzhabrailov took out the gun when he saw it was the cleaning lady and not a waiter who brought him dinner. The businessman was in rage; he started shooting at the ceiling and the walls, saying he wanted to see the administrators. He used a Yarygin award pistol (MP-443 Grach).
The investigators opened a criminal case under Art. 213 of the Criminal Code (Hooliganism).
Umar Dzhabrailov was a member of the Federation Council representing the Republic of Chechnya between 2004 and 2009. He was also engaged in construction and hotel business, founded Avanti, a business association. Dzhabrailov is considered one of the closest associates of Chechnya's leader Ramzan Kadyrov.
There have been a number of high-profile scandals around the businessman before. In 2014, he was a person of interest in a case of extortion of $2m from the family of Mikhail Kapura, a former member of the Federation Council. However, eventually only Dzhabrailov’s security guards were accused of the crime.
In 2015, news about ex-senator’s bodyguards appeared in the press quite often. They started shooting at Night Wolves bikers on Krylatskaya Street in Ostrov Fantazy elite village. To resolve the conflict, the Night Wolves leader Zaldostanov personally met Dzhabrailov. They said for the record that the incident was just a misunderstanding, and the police did not even open a criminal case.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
According to the head of the state-owned company, the Russian business “rebuilt the country,” “restored the collapsed Soviet enterprises,” “returned the salary to the people,” “filled the budget with money.”
