Vladimir Zubok is known as a former partner of businessman Vladimir Kadin, the vice-president of the Regional Boxing Federation, who was killed in 2011.
Volgograd businessman Vladimir Zubkov, better known in criminal environment as Zubok, was detained after the searches that took place today at the ex-head of the ICR for the Volgograd Region, Mikhail Muzrev, as well as other persons. These events are directly related, but the details have not been disclosed.
According to Bloknot, today the searches took place in Volgograd all day long. Security forces officers paid a visit to the former head of the ICR for the Volgograd Region, Mikhail Muzrayev, as well as a number of other persons. The searches were carried out at Muzrayev’s home and country house.
After these events, Zubok was detained. His place was searched earlier. Some documents were found in his house, in which the name of Lieutenant-General Muzrayev appeared.
Zubok is known as the former partner of Vladimir Kadin, the vice-president of the Regional Boxing Federation, who was killed in 2011. Zubkov is a co-founder of the Zamok na Peskakh entertainment complex and Sosnovy Bor LLC.
Mikhail Muzrayev was dismissed in early January 2019. He has led the regional ICR for more than 11 years. Telegram channels wrote that the ICR chairman Alexander Bastrykin made efforts to protect the colleague, who, thanks to his influence, for a long time was called the de facto head of the region. It is worth noting that rumors about Muzrayev’s imminent resignation have been appearing in Volgograd media since 2014.
It was reported that Muzrayev has long-standing friendly relations with the now under investigation ex-head of the ICR’s Moscow Main Investigative Direcotrate General Drymanov. Mikhail Maximenko, the former head of another major ICR department, who was sentenced in April to 13 years in a strict regime penal colony, according to the Novaya Gazeta, was also a close friend of Muzrayev.
