He tried to escape.
The police have detained 43-year-old Sergey Vanyushin, who is suspected of beating a State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate officer, Nikolay Malinin, in Volkhov. He tried to leave for St. Petersburg; his friend drove him there. This is reported by the Investigative Committee in the Leningrad region.
As previously reported by The CrimeRussia, the incident took place in the Marsel cafe last weekend. The second suspect is Magarlamov Shakhin Khurshud Oglu, a native of Georgia, who calls himself Chikan, better known as Izyum.
According to the investigation, Magarlamov and Vanyushin opened fire when Marsel’s security refused to let them in. At the time, Malinin was in the cafe with his wife. They were celebrating the Day of the Chemist. He intervened and tried to calm down the brawlers.
Later, the police officer was found unconscious with stab and gunshot wounds near the entrance to the cafe. The investigation believes that Izyum shot the traffic police officer with a shotgun, and Vanyushin stabbed him.
The detainee has been taken to the Investigative Committee department in the Volkhov district, the Leningrad region. Magarlamov Shakhin is still wanted.
According to the latest data, the injured policeman has undergone a surgery; his condition is serious.

The intel scandal involving Oleg Smolenkov, who had access to the Kremlin and possessed valuable information, has become a widely discussed topic. It was CNN who reported, citing sources in the CIA and Donald Trump administration, on the “informant” being evacuated from Russia in 2017. It turned out that for certain people in Russia, the spy’s disappearance was not a secret, while the Russian elite denied the fact of espionage in unison with the American one. The Smolenkov family was forced to leave their luxurious mansion in Virginia, and their current whereabouts are unknown. Smolenkov’s “patron,” Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation for the International Sector Yury Ushakov, continues to fulfill his duties. The CrimeRussia looked into the story of “exfiltration” of the top informant and the possible consequences of his work as an intelligencer.
