Renat Bulatov is accused of violating traffic rules, which caused the death of two or more persons (part 5 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code).
The investigators charged Renat Bulatov, the 22-year-old Volgograd deputy head of the Young Guard of United Russia, with violating traffic rules, which resulted in the death of a family with two children, the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the region reported in a press release.
Bulatov is accused of violating the traffic rules, which has, by negligence, entailed the death of two or more persons (part 5 of Art. 264 of the Criminal Code). The Young Guard head confessed to the wrongdoing and faces up to seven years in prison.
The Sredneakhtubinsky District Court of the Volgograd Region locked Bulatov up for two months.
The accident occurred on August 10. Bulatov was overtaking a car driving his Dodge Ram, when he got into the oncoming lane and collided with a Honda. There were a married couple and their daughters of five and seven inside the car.
Denis Davydov, the chairman of Young Guard’s Coordination Council, said that Bulatov's membership in the organization has been suspended. He will be expelled from the Young Guard if he is proven guilty.
The detention is related to the investigation into the abduction and murder of Tatyana Sidorova, a deputy of the Ramenskoye District Legislature, and three members of her family, which occurred back in 2012.
