Mara Bagdasaryan "did not bother" to pay 16 fines
The 23-year-old street racer said she did not pay the fines since she was outside of Moscow. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Internal Affairs filed administrative materials to the court for the numerous traffic violations committed by the young offender.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow submitted files against Mara Bagdasaryan. The day before, the 23-year-old girl had been arrested for illegal parking on Moscow’s Leninsky Prospekt and non-payment of 16 fines for her previous traffic violations.
The street racer for whom it has not been the first time to get the attention of law enforcement officers, was taken to the regional police department, where, hiding her face with a fur vest, she said she was not paying the fines as she was outside Moscow.
"I just didn’t bother to do that," said Bagdasaryan.
According to RenTV, the girl was late in paying fines totaling 48 thousand rubles.
To remind: Bagdasaryan was involved in the Gelandewagen chase, being only a witness in the high-profile criminal case. Her friends, including son of the Lukoil Vice-President Ruslan Shamsuarov, have been charged under Article 319 (Insult of a Representative of Power). Ruslan Shamsuarov and Viktor Uskov were found guilty and sentenced to 300 hours of community service. Abduvahob Madjidov who was the third person involved in the case, was acquitted by the court. The court also ruled that Shamsuarov’s Mercedes Benz Gelandewagen should be seized in favor of the state. The Prosecutor intends to charge the golden youth under Article 318 of the Criminal Code (Use of Violence Against a Representative of the Power) and demand the young people should get real prison sentences.

Lieutenant General Oleg Troshin announced he is going to retire in May 2018. He is doing it following a decision taken a year ago – not due to non-existent issues with the agency reported by some local media outlets.
A serious and not at all political clash of interests is taking place at the Russian Federation Council. Kamchatka senators Valery Ponomarev and Boris Nevzorov are failing at deciding how to divide the Kamchatka water resources; both men make millions of dollars off of them every year.
