The woman refused criminal protection, for which she was beaten.
Two men were arrested in the Moscow region on suspicion of extortion from a 45-year-old local entrepreneur, the press service of the Main Directorate of Internal Affairs Ministry for the region reports.
The woman owns a stall on the territory of a fruit and vegetable warehouse in Dolgoprudny, Moscow region. The extortionists demanded money from her for criminal protection, but the businesswoman refused the ‘roof.’ Then the two men first beat her, and then doused her with gasoline and promised to set fire to her. After the attack, she turned to the police.
The detainees aged 28 and 34 became defendants of a case under Art. 163 of the Criminal Code (Extortion). They face up to 15 years in colony. The police do not exclude that the men were members of a criminal gang - the investigators continue to establish the circumstances of the incident.
Deposit Insurance Agency and ‘criminal duo’ of its First Deputy General Director Miroshnikov and colonel–billionaire Cherkalin
Valery Miroshnikov, First Deputy General Director of the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA), has fled Russia and intends to resign. Experts explain his escape by the arrest of FSB colonel Kirill Cherkalin charged with swindling amounting to 12 billion rubles ($191.4 million); Miroshnikov and Cherkalin had close ties. In addition, the high-ranked insurer was a friend of fugitive FSB general Viktor Voronin – who had assisted to late banker Vladimir Kogan in the resolution of Bank UralSib and then relocated to Israel. The CrimeRussia reviewed operations of the ‘unsinkable’ Deposit Insurance Agency and its top manager Valery Miroshnikov – as well as his extensive connections actively used in the course of liquidation of Russian banks. The main question is: why is the Central Bank of Russia turning a blind eye to suspicious actions of the DIA?
