Son of LUKOIL Senior Vice-President put into trouble officers of the Moscow State Automobile Inspection
Ruslan Shamsuarov appreciated actions of State Traffic Safety Inspection officers who “acted strictly within the limits of the law”. Anatoly Yakunin, Head of the General Administration for the City of Moscow of the Ministry of Interior Affairs, disagrees.
The story of a reckless street racing in Moscow by a company of youth continues. Ruslan Shamsuarov, one of the ‘gilded youth’, son of LUKOIL Senior Vice-President, was among the fans of extreme racing. After the incident went public and was broadly covered in media, and, perhaps, after father’s reprimand, Ruslan Shamsuarov had to make a public apology which he published on his Facebook page.
“Dear friends! I feel very bad for participating in such a story. The only excuse is our festive mood after visiting a club – which does not justify us in any way. We behaved despicably. Therefore, I would like to make a sincere apology for myself and my friends to officers of the State Traffic Safety Inspection, all drivers, Moscow people, and of course, my family,” – Shamsuarov Junior wrote. – “I understand that such behavior is unacceptable for an adult person and will do everything to ensure that this would never happen again,” - Ruslan Shamsuarov concluded.
Shamsuarov also appreciated actions of State Traffic Safety Inspection (STSI) officers who “acted strictly within the limits of the law”. Anatoly Yakunin, Head of the General Administration for the City of Moscow of the Ministry of Interior Affairs (MIA), disagreed and, while commenting leisure activities of ‘gilded youth’, noted that the STSI officers could be reprimanded. Yakunin said that the street racers had to get more severe penalty than just a fine. He noted that the racers who put to risk lives of other drivers must be arrested for at least 15 days. Now a service audit will be initiated against the STSI officers and they can be subject to disciplinary action.
“A service audit will be initiated against the STSI officers who did not act properly and only issued fines to the law-breakers; they can be subject to disciplinary action,” – press service of the Head of Russian MIA General Administration for the City of Moscow says.
The CrimeRussia will continue monitoring this situation.
