New count in ex-Governor Yurevich’s case: illegal firearms storage
A rare 18-century pistol that was found in Yurevich’s house is quite suitable for shooting, despite its historical value.
A new count has appeared in the criminal case against the ex-Governor. According to Znak.com, Yurevich is charged under Art. 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Illegal Acquisition, Transfer, Sale, Storage, Transportation, or Bearing of Firearms, Its Basic Parts, Ammunition, Explosives, and Explosive Devices).
It is noteworthy that the new article in the case against Mikhail Yurevich appeared after an antique unregistered pistol was found during a search in his house. Then an examination was carried out, which showed that the 18-century weapon was suitable for shooting.
As the newspaper wrote with reference to a law enforcement source, despite the objections of his lawyers who claimed that Yurevich had not lived in the house for several years, the investigator ruled that the former Governor should be held accountable under Art. 222 of the Criminal Code.
Yurevich's lawyer Igor Trunov has been out of reach, but the agency does not exclude that the weapon episode might have ben needed to reinforce the prosecution's position in court.
We shall remind that apart from illegal storage of weapons, the former governor of the Chelyabinsk region is suspected of committing crimes violating several articles of the Criminal Code.

According to the investigation, the former chairman of the Chelyabinsk regional court Fedor Vyatkin became the victim of the slanderous statements, while Mikhail Yurevich denies all the charges.
