Police officer in Stary Oskol shot man who attacked him with knife during detention
In the Belgorod region, a man attacked a policeman with a knife.
According to the Telegram channel 112 and RenTV, 37-year-old Alexander Kosov, being in a very drunk condition, stole a bottle of vodka from a shop in Stary Oskol. The cashier immediately called the police.
Patrol and inspection service brigade caught up with the thief at the house number 27 in the Zhukova microdistrict.
The man did not agree with the detention and resisted fiercely. He attacked the policeman with a knife and stabbed him in the leg. In response, a representative of the law enforcement agencies Roman Baklanov shot in the chest of the attacker.
Kosov died on the spot, Baklanov was hospitalized.
This month Alexander Kosov used cold weapons for the first time. In early March, he attacked a private security brigade at a shop. They tied up Kosov and brought him to the detention center, but he was soon released from there.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
