Murder of the Acting Chairman of the Malokarachayevsky district court Ruslan Botashev in Karachay-Cherkessia was detected without delay, Kommersant reported.
Botashev was shot by five shots at close range in the village of Pervomayskoye in Malokarachayevskiy district around noon. The Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee in the Karachay-Cherkessia initiated a case under Art. 295 (Encroachment on the Life of a Person Administering Justice) and Art. 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Illegal Acquisition, Transfer, Sale, Storage, Transportation, or Bearing of Firearms).
The criminal was quickly detained by law enforcement officers thanks to the surveillance camera installed at a Banquet hall, near which the judge's car was parked.
The killer was waiting for judge Botashev, who went out from a shop and then made four shots. Then he made an attempt to escape from the scene of the crime, but changed his mind, returned and shot the wounded judge again.

Three years ago by the decision of the shot judge, amount of Dzhadtoyev’s pension for liquidator of the Chernobyl accident was twice reduced.

A 50-meter-high mural on a residential building in the Zhulebino district of Moscow caused a scandal in the final days of the world championship. Social networks and the media were outraged by a giant portrait of the wife of Ivan Panteleev, owner of Novatek Art – the company retained by the Moscow government to produce the fresco painting. Critics accuse him of monopolization of the legal street art market in Moscow and corruption ties with the Mayor’s Office, while the businessman claims that the competitors are just jealous of his success. The CrimeRussia decided to find out who is right and wrong in this situation.
