“Revolver changed hands a bunch of times.” Witness shared details of singer Igor Talkov’s homicide
The eyewitness believes “a chain of coincidences” led to the tragedy.
The murder of singer Igor Talkov was unpremeditated, an eyewitness to the incident, former criminal investigation officer Sergey Lomov is convinced. He shared his memories in a program on Channel Five.
According to Lomov, 27 years ago, the scuffle behind the scenes of Yubileyny Sports Palace, which started out of nothing, evolved into a “dirty fight,” and the murder was “the result of carelessness.”
“During the skirmish, the revolver changed hands a bunch of times. It is just a chain of coincidences,” Lomov thinks.
He recalled that the weapon belonged to a friend of singer Aziza, Igor Malakhov, but the accusation was brought against the director of performer Valery Shlyafman, who emigrated to Israel. The investigation was suspended in 1993.
The day before it became known that the Investigative Committee of Russia reopened the case and had already called the singer’s widow Tatyana Talkova to give testimony. The woman, who is featured in the case as a victim, got acquainted with the case papers and the results of the examinations.
The story with the arrest of Igor Vainshtok, creator of famous bifidok, in absentia and his escape is pretty confusing. The company founded by him still remains the largest probiotics producer in Russia and generates multimillion profits – however, somehow it was declared bankrupt. An international warrant has been issued against Vainshtok for non-payment of salaries – while the businessman calls his prosecution an element of the raiding takeover of his company that was already recognized a raidership victim in the past. Concurrently, employees of Partner Joint Stock Company created by Vainshtok claim that he has stolen not only millions of rubles from the base bank of Roscosmos – but, more importantly, the bifidok inventorship. So, whom has Vainshtok fled from?
