Lawyer of man who murdered Starovoytova found shot dead
Suicide is considered the main version.
38-year-old lawyer Yevgeny Rusakov, who represented the murderer of State Duma deputy Galina Starovoytova, was found shot in the village of Vyritsa, Gatchina District of the Leningrad Region. As reported by RIA Novosti, this information was confirmed by a representative of the regional Investigative Committee.
The lawyer’s body with a gunshot wound in the chin was discovered on April 10 in the apartment in a building on Sosnovaya Street in the village of Vyritsa, Gatchina District. The deceased was lying on the couch, and in his hand there was a pistol of the Czech brand PODNIK. An empty case was found near the body.
The investigators found that on April 9 Rusakov, while in a state of intoxication, caused an accident on a Lexus when he approached his house. After that, the lawyer left the scene and went home.
Yevgeny Rusakov was the defender of Vitaly Akishin accused of the murder of State Duma deputy Galina Starovoytova. In June 2005, Akishin was found guilty and sentenced to 23.5 years in prison.
Galina Starovoytova was killed in the entrance hall of her house in St. Petersburg on November 20, 1998. Yuri Kolchin and former State Duma deputy Mikhail Glushchenko were also convicted in the case.
The day before the special services detained the head of the Special Machinery and Communication (STiS) FSO and charged him with abuse of official powers. The FSB believes that Makhonov may be complicit in a crime detected.
The long-term confrontation between respected in the criminal world thief in law Badri Koguashvili (Badri Kutaissky) and the punitive system has recently resulted in another information leak. A video (in fact, just a slide show) has been uploaded on YouTube with a narrative implying that Koguashvili – posing as a thief-in-law of the old school – violates the thieves’ code himself.
