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.

In early June last year, 40-year-old Director of the state-owned unitary enterprise Proekt Razvitiya Balaklavy ('Balaklava Development Project') Mikhail Derbenev was found dead in his Sevastopol apartment. He died under mysterious circumstances, and his death was preceded by a scandal about 380 million rubles ($5.9 mln) from budget of Yugra that disappeared in offshores in Cyprus and Seychelles through OOO Lloyd-Patterson, the founder of which he is still him. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what could have caused the businessman’s death, what is the connection between Tyumen, Yugra, Sevastopol and Karachay-Cherkessia, how the governor Ovsyannikov develops Balaklava (and does he?) and why the head of the Ministry of Construction Vladimir Yakushev and Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin have been spoted in this story.
