No official comments from Crimea’s MIA have been received yet.
Anatoly Soshin, the private security company’s director, said the information on the searches is unreliable, reports RBK. In his words, there were no searches in the company’s office. Soshin also pointed out that the private security company’s staff members arrived at the college in 5 minutes after the attack alarm signal was received.
The attack on the Kerch polytechnic college took place in the daytime, on October 17. The 4-year student Vladislav Roslyakov came to the college holding a rifle and homemade explosives and carried out mass shooting. After that, he shot himself dead. 20 persons died, and 68 were injured following the attack. The Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case for a terrorist act (article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) with reclassifying it as mass murder (item 2 of article 105) later.
The official car of former Deputy Head of Roskomnadzor and now Deputy Head of the Department of Project Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation, Maksim Ksenzov, tried to ram two foreign cars, after which an unknown person, who jumped out of the third car, crashed the car mirrors and beat up his driver.
The owner of the Norebo Group, Vitaly Orlov, seems to be having more problems every day. No sooner had he been recognized as Russia’s richest fishing industrialist with a net worth of over $1 billion that he got bombarded with lawsuits and criminal cases. So far, they have only been coming from his former business partner. However, taking into account all the new facts that indicate some opaque business practices at best, the authorities may take some issues with the billionaire as well, since there have been discrepancies in the figures of the fish supplied abroad, the prices, and the final profit, which may indicate attempted tax avoidance.
Crimea faces storm again. Sergey Aksenov may lose his post. Perhaps, he decided to play it safe and arrange a public scandal – his appointee to the Head of the Simferopol administration post. It is believed that Igor Lukashev and his seven deputies were allegedly dismissed due to the significant number of complaints from citizens about the traffic collapse, the poor state of road maintenance and cleaning of the city. The CrimeRussia tries to find out the real reason for the resignation of the Simferopol administration.
