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 Moscow Government has already held more than fifty tenders for the construction of houses, which later were included in the renovation program. Most of the contracts were won by longtime acquaintances and countrymen of the vice mayor of the capital.
While the media spread information that Abramovich and his wife have split ‘peacefully’ and settled all the financial issues in advance, Darya Zhukova has retained famous divorce lawyer Raymond Tooth who used to represent Irina Malandina, the previous wife of Abramovich, in 2007. The CrimeRussia has found that Zhukova has a good chance to become one of the five richest women in Russia and possibly topple Elena Baturina with her $1 billion fortune.
