Moscow police chasing and shooting Zhiguli
The other day, Moscow police officers went chasing and shooting a VAZ 2115, because the driver had not responded to the demands to stop.
According to the press service of the MIA Main Directorate in Moscow, this incident took place on Friday, March 10, at around 20:30 hours. Police Patrol and Checkpoint Service (PPCS) officers were forced to use service weapons during the pursuit of a VAZ 2115, since the driver had not responded to their demands to stop the vehicle.
As it turned out, the PPCS officers saw a suspicious car, which clearly tried to dart past the police. The latter demanded, via speakerphone, that he stopped, but there was no reaction. After that, the police went after the Zhiguli. Since the driver also ignored the repeated demands to stop, the ‘guards of the order’ decided to use service weapons and opened fire at the pursued car.
The driver stopped only after the PPCS officers fired several shots at the Zhiguli. There were two men and two women in the car; none of them had any IDs. The police detained them and took them to the police station for further investigation.
Once-successful banker Dmitry Ananiev is now successfully fighting against VIP shareholders of Promsvyazbank in the London High Court of Justice. The court has lifted the conservatory attachments earlier imposed on assets of brothers Ananiev following a motion brought by the plaintiffs. According to some information, the judge has made this decision after the banker’s revelations about money laundering schemes used in Russia by his clients, partners, and acquaintances. Why is Dmitry Ananiev taking revenge on his former colleagues and ‘high patrons’?
The investigators found two rifles, including one with an optical sight, seven thousand cartridges, 14 improvised explosive devices, ten grenades, 140 detonators, a rocket-propelled grenade and 14 rounds in the unfinished building.
