One Aleksandr Gofshtein is her lawyer; Ziyavudin Magomedov, a Summa co-owner, and crime lord Zakhary Kalashov aka Shakro Molodoy are some of his other clients.
The Presnensky District Court of Moscow ordered Olga Sintyureva suspected of stealing 22m rubles from a Marriot Hotel safe to answer investigators' questions, according to 112 Telegram channel.
The Court dismissed the testimony of Sergey Zhigarev and Aleksandr Krayushin, his business partner, and demanded evidence that 20m rubles ($321k) and $35k that had allegedly been stolen actually existed.

Deputy Sergey Zhigarev
Aleksandr Gofshtein is one of the most expensive and famous Russian lawyers. Ziyavudin Magomedov, a Summa co-owner, and crime lord Zakhary Kalashov aka Shakro Molodoy are some of his other clients. The travel restrictions are the first of his victories, according to Telegram channels.
It is worth mentioning that it could all change as soon as July 18. Investigators put forward a motion asking to put Olga Sintyureva in jail instead of simply imposing travel restriction on her; they have filed it with the Presnensky District Court.

She claimed she did not know that attacker. However, the police arrested her for suspected theft on July 11.
The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
