RBC: three arrested over assassination testified the Senator from KCR

Rasul Adzhiev, arrested for the murder in 2010 of an activist of the Circassian youth Aslan Zhukov movement, called the customer of the crime of the Senator from Karachay-Cherkessia Republic (KCHR) Rauf Arashukov, according to RBC with reference to the Protocol of interrogation of the accused. The authenticity of the document publication confirmed a source familiar with the investigation.


According to RBC, earlier testimony on Senator gave two more people who investigators believe was involved in the murder of the adviser of the President of KCHR Frala Shebzukhova in 2010.

As claimed by the accused during interrogation, Rauf Arashukov was allocated by 500 thousand rbl. to “to intimidate and beat” Frala Shebzukhova, and 1 million roubles to the murder of Aslan Zhukov.

Since September, family members of the slain pickets at the building of investigative management of SKR on KCHR, demanding to initiate a criminal case against the Senator. They sent a written request to the Chairman of the TFR Alexander Bastrykin, the Director of FSB Alexander Bortnikov, and Prosecutor General Yury Chaika and Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko. The authors of the letter asked to join two murder cases and transfer them to the Central office of the TFR for an independent investigation. As stated in the letter that investigators “don’t just do nothing, and are trying to distort the progress and results of the investigation and on spurious grounds refuse to prosecute Arashukova”.

In the office of Senator RBC said that “was surprised” about statements of relatives of the victims and believe the accusations are unfounded. “No evidence (the involvement of Rauf Arashukov to the killing. “B”) no”, — said the representative of the unit. He added that “the competent authorities and courts already filed applications and claims for defamation.”
