Unmanly behaviour: Detention extended for driver who beat woman at crossing
In Moscow, by decision of the Khamovnichesky Court, the detention period for the driver of BMW X5 Ruslan Vyunov has been extended.
Let us recall that, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, May 5, the businessman beat a woman crossing the road with her children in the center of Moscow.
According to the investigative bodies, Vyunov was driving his BMW along the 1st Vrazhsky Lane when the woman with two small children was crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing. The driver did not yield to them and nearly knocked them down by his car. Getting startled, the woman she slapped the trunk of the passing car. In response, the angry driver stopped the car, caught up with the woman, and inflicted several blows to her forearm.
After law enforcers identified the road bully, he was detained. A criminal case under Battery was initiated against him. May 12, Ruslan Vyunov was formally charged. By court order, he will be in a detention facility until May 15. According to Official Representative of the ICR Svetlana Petrenko, the court has not elected a preventive measure in the form of arrest against him, but extended the detention until Monday. This measure is necessary to ensure that the man does not exert any pressure on the incident witnesses and does not evade the law enforcement bodies over the weekend.
Meanwhile, ICR Chief Aleksandr Bastrykin has ordered to gather all the necessary materials for Vyunov's arrest. "Instead of the moral and ethical norms' point of view, this behavior unworthy of a man will be considered in the criminal legal plane," the agency head stressed.
Three officers of the Moscow FSB office, detained in June 2017, are defendants in the criminal case heard by the Moscow Garrison Military Court along with the retired MIA Major-General Viktor Trutnev. The official prosecution asked 7 and eight years’ imprisonment for them.
A 50-meter-high mural on a residential building in the Zhulebino district of Moscow caused a scandal in the final days of the world championship. Social networks and the media were outraged by a giant portrait of the wife of Ivan Panteleev, owner of Novatek Art – the company retained by the Moscow government to produce the fresco painting. Critics accuse him of monopolization of the legal street art market in Moscow and corruption ties with the Mayor’s Office, while the businessman claims that the competitors are just jealous of his success. The CrimeRussia decided to find out who is right and wrong in this situation.
