Police Chief of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Districts dismissed because of the massacre at the Khovanskoye cemetery
Some of his subordinates have recently lost their posts.
After the mass massacre between migrant workers and a group of "athletes", which took place on 14 of May at the Khovanskoye cemetery, Head of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Sergei Ternovykh did not come out of holiday, which became a reason for disciplinary sanction in the form of service incompetency. Now it became known that he was dismissed from his post. District police chief Rifat Kaberov, deputy for operations Colonel of the MIA Dmitry Prosolenko, Head of the Kommunarskiy police department Lieutenant-Colonel Yuri Voronin have also been dismissed.
Heads of the Moscow local police have admitted that actions of their subordinates during the fight at the Khovanskoye cemetery were ineffective.
To remember: on the day of the collision of migrants from Tajikistan and the armed gang of "athletes", consisting mainly of people from the Caucasus republics, 3 people were killed and about 40 injured. The investigation of the loud criminal case is held by the Main Military Investigations Directorate of the Investigative Committee. The criminal case has been initiated under Part. 2 Art. 105 of the Criminal Code "Murder of two or more persons, a group of persons by prior conspiracy," Part. 1 of Art. 222 of the Criminal Code "Illegal trafficking of arms and ammunition" and Part 2 of Art.. 213 of the Criminal Code "Hooliganism committed by a group of persons."

Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
