Chechnyas President Lost the Best Enemy
The Mercedes S600 with ex-member of the State Duma, Russias Hero Ruslan Yamadaev and his friend Sergei Kizyun, the former first deputy commander of the Leningrad Military District, were shot down in Moscow yesterday. Yamadaev was killed and the general taken to hospital in the grave condition. One of the stories is that the crime roots in clashes of Yamadaev and his younger brother Sulim, the recent commander of Vostok battalion in Chechnya, with Chechnyas President Ramzan Kadyrov.
Driven by Yamadaev, Mercedes S600 stopped at the red traffic light near 10 Smolenskaya Quay yesterday, at 5:15 p.m. MSK. Old Audi 80 slowed down nearby to fire from Kedr (Cedar) submachine-gun. The distance was close and bullets penetrated through the vehicle's armor, killing Yamadaev and wounding Kizyun, once Chechnyas commandant, who had recently retired from the post of the first deputy commander of the Leningrad Military District.

Kizyun that was wounded in chest and in shoulder was taken to Botkin hospital and his condition is very grave. Audi and the killer escaped from the place of the accident. The Interception Plan launched straight after the crime bore no fruit.

The witnesses say the gauze bandage covered the killers face. He is of Asian origin, judging by the eyes form. The investigators suppose that Yamadaev was the target, while the general suffered by accident. Well-aware that the car was armored, the killer knew of the flaw the driver's window, and the bullets fired from submachine gun gradually broke the glass, similar to the effect of the rock breaker.

The detectives that examined the place of the accident attribute the crime to the opposition of Yamadaev brothers and Chechnyas President Ramzan Kadyrov the latter publicly declared them criminals and enemies of Chechen nation. But the generals that are in charge of investigation insist on pursuing all leads, including business and blood feud.
