Investigative Committee car rammed taxi in center of Moscow
The Committee blamed the taxi driver, who allegedly violated the traffic rules, for the accident.
The Investigative Committee car rammed a taxi in the center of Moscow, at the intersection of Radio and Baumanskaya streets. No injuries reported. Mash Telegram channel claims that the vehicle belongs to the convoy of Alexander Bastrykin's deputy Igor Krasnov. The ICR denied this.
“Igor Krasnov is in the workplace at this moment. Also, he drives a different brand of car,” TASS quotes the ICR.
According to the interlocutor, the accident occurred due to improper maneuver of the taxi driver, who was driving along the tram tracks and turned off where it was not supposed to.
Lieutenant-General Igor Krasnov became the deputy head of the ICR in 2016, investigated some high-profile criminal cases: an attempt on Anatoly Chubais, the murder of lawyer Stanislav Markelov and journalist Anastasia Baburova, the death of Boris Nemtsov.
Oleg Zaytsev had wide connections within the criminal world and law enforcement agencies. This is being related to an organized crime group headed by Ruslan Kilievich that had allegedly been patronized by a former Federal Security Service Directorate officer Oleg Natalchenko. The crime group had also been a core driver for almost disbanding the criminal investigation department of the police.
