Two Chechnya residents arrested in Voronezh Region for robbing truckers
Criminal cases against two Chechnya residents were opened on the allegation of breaking the Article 161 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. The men would rob truckers driving through M-4 Don federal highway, the Voronezh Region.
The suspects were arrested in the Bogucharsky District of the Region, according to the Ministry of Interior Affairs of the Russian Federation. Initially, the men refused to tell police where the stolen money was, according to Bloknot, the Voronezh Region media.
An M-4 Don highway patrol unit was ordered to arrest a Lexus GS 300 the day before, since its driver and passenger were suspected of having robbed a trucker an hour prior to the order at a parking lot in the Pavlovsky District.
The suspects are two 35 y. o. men from the Chechen Republic. Police arrested them at the 741th km of the highway. Another trucker, a Republic of Belarus resident, addressed the police officers searching the car, telling them 2 men on a similar car had robbed him for 3 000 rubles and 200 Euros at a gas station at the 720th km in the Verkhnemamonsky District earlier that day.
The officers confiscated 19 000 rubles and 200 euros, as well as a bag filled with transparent substance and 4 bottles with liquid reminiscent of a drug as the result of the car arrest and search. The bottles were sent to experts for examination.

After the murder of Aleksander Zakharchenko, everything has changed in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR). A redistribution of spheres of influence is ongoing in the region at all levels of the state (and not only state) power. It is not a secret that Denis Pushilin, Interim Acting Head of the DPR, has been dreaming about this post for four years. Although he was among the DPR leaders, being the Chairman of the People’s Council and Permanent Representative to the Minsk Contact Group, Pushilin had no possibility to implement his financial plans and schemes, nor had he access to shady financial flows. The ‘Trapeznikov–Tashkent’ team spreading pervasive corruption in the republic was in charge of this sector.
