Umar Dzhabrailov opens fire near Kremlin, says he wants to run for Senate again
The infamous businessman wants to protect Russia from ‘hawks’.
Businessman and former Russian Federation Council member Umar Dzhabrailov announced he is going to run for the Senate again. He is ready to actively participate in Russia’s ‘parapolitics’, Dzhabrailov told RBC.
“I would like to become a senator again <…> I have learned from my mistakes and I know what I can do for Russia when it once more becomes a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the sanctions are lifted, and the world has moved on and changed,” Dzhabrailov told RBC.
Dzhabrailov and his colleague Leonid Slutsky successfully managed to protect Russia from the so-called ‘hawks’ when he was the State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee head, he emphasized.
To recall, Dzhabrailov represented Chechnya in the Russian Federation Council from 2004 to 2009 and was part of the Russian mission to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.
Dzhabrailov’s status of a State Duma deputy was suspended due to him having opened fire from his honorary firearm in the Four Seasons hotel located next to Kremlin in 2017. The police found white powder, bottles with alcohol, and unidentified pills there. Medical experts later confirmed the businessman was under influence of drugs during the incident.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
