As reported by a representative of the regional ICR Office on Wednesday, investigation has not found a criminal component in the death of Deputy Head of Tavrovsky rural settlement of the Belgorod district Aleksandr Kulabukhov, son of Federation Council Member Ivan Kulabukhov.
Representative of the district administration has told RIA Novosti that Aleksandr Kulabukhov was found dead on November 8 in Belgorod. A number of local media outlets has reported that he committed suicide. A pre-investigation check of the incident has been held. In particular, investigation has tried to establish whether there was a suicide, incitement to suicide, and death caused by negligence.
"It's been decided not to institute criminal proceedings in the absence of a crime... That is, it was not a crime... No crime has been committed," official representative of the regional ICR Office Elena Kozyreva told RIA Novosti, adding that "we are confident it was a suicide."
Billionaire Viktor Vekselberg has repaid loans in the amount of $1 billion taken from the Western banks. Earlier, his Renova Group had received state support from Promsvyazbank. Renova representatives say they have repaid the loan with the company’s own funds.
Federation Council member Vadim Nikolaev whose son had gotten into a fight strongly suggested that the other kids and their parents dropped beating charges, making it clear that he had already been to prosecutors and the ICR and “gotten it all dealt with.”
The businessman agreed to exchange the assets of Liwet Holding, through which Vekselberg’s company owned the shares of high-tech European concerns, for the assets of his partners Evgeny Olkhovik and Vladimir Kremer.
