There has been no official confirmation of the reports from the businessman or the Investigative Committee to this moment.
Investigative Committee has searched Gavriil Yushvaev’s place over the shootout in Moskva City that happened November 17, 2017 in Oko Tower. It was not until now that RBC has learned about the police raids, although they were carried out in the businessman’s Moscow suburban houses and apartment right after the incident.
According to sources in the investigative authorities, the searches were held in two of his houses in the Odintsovo district near Moscow in the village of Gorki-2 and Zhukovka, as well as in an apartment located in the Nemansky passage in Moscow. "The basis for the search was a report that documents relevant to the case could be found in the apartment," stated the ICR source.
There has been no official confirmation of the reports from the businessman or the Investigative Committee to this moment. However, an acquaintance of Yushvaev's confirmed to RBC that the businessman’s places had indeed been searched, which was associated with the Moskva City conflict. Note that Gavriil Yushvaev is a part owner of Oko Tower, where the gunfight took place.
The incident began after Greps-2 private security officers decided they did not like the way Yushvaev’s limousine was parked. They told the driver to put the car in a different spot; they did it rudely and using physical force. However, Yushvaev’s bodyguards soon came to his rescue. A fight broke out, and later turned into a shootout.
The incident occurred at Crystall Ball Room restaurant during the 50th Birthday Party of one of the Izmailovskaya gang leaders, Dmitry Borisovich Pavlov aka Pavlik. Seven people got injuries, including two officers of Rosgvardiya’s FSUE Okhrana, who had been Pavlov’s bodyguards that evening, according to some reports. One of the building guards died. Two of the people involved in the incident were later put under arrest by the court: mixed martial artist Eldar Khamidov and Magomed Ismailov, two-time world champion in kickboxing and the alleged initiator. Both of them were involved in the shootout on Gavriil Yushvaev’s side. Ismailov is charged with Hooliganism in a group of persons (part 2 of Art. 213 of the Criminal Code), and Khamidov is charged with an Attempted Murder (Art. 30 and Art. 105 of the Criminal Code).
Earlier, the Rosbalt source had stated that the conflict could have been provoked by the other part owner of Oko Tower, Vladislav Doronin. According to the news outlet, Yushvaev's bodyguards were opposed by the Greps-2 security officers, controlled by the the other part owner of Oko Tower, Vladislav Doronin. There is supposedly a serious business conflict between the partners.
The retired security official and two of his subordinates are suspected of an attempt to receive 31.5 million rubles ($470,610) from a construction company for its participation in the corporation’s tender.
