Moscow court arrests in absentia person accused of murder of Nemtsov
The Basmanny District Court of Moscow took into custody fighter of the “Sever” (North) battalion of the Chechen Interior Ministry Ruslan Mukhudinov in absentia.
He is suspected of the organization of murder of Boris Nemtsov, the “Crimea. Realities” portal reports.
He was charged with murder and illicit trafficking in firearms and put on federal and international wanted list.
According to the investigation, it was he who promised 25 million rubles for murder of the opposition politician. The alleged perpetrator of crime, former member of the Chechen battalion “Sever” (North) Zaur Dadaev said this in his testimony.
The judge announced that Ruslan Mukhudinov must have fled from justice in the United Arab Emirates. The investigation supposes that he could leave Russia on someone else’s passport.
The lawyer of Mukhudinov denies his client’s guilt.
As a reminder, Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was shot four times in the back as he crossed a bridge in view of the Kremlin in Moscow overnight into February 28. Five natives of Chechnya were arrested within the proceedings over the murder. All of them deny guilt.
The report of Nemtsov on the war between Russia and Ukraine was presented in Moscow this spring.
