The Prosecutor General's Office approved the indictment in the case of the ex-governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal. He is charged with murder, attempted murder and illegal firearms trafficking. Together with him in the criminal case are three accomplices.

According to Interfax-Russia, in the final conclusion, according to the investigation, Furgal and Nikolai Mistryukov organized a criminal group in 2004 to kill competitors. At the same time, they were guided by selfish motives: they wanted to increase income from the purchase of ferrous scrap by controlled organizations.

In addition to Furgal and Mistryukov, the criminal group included Andrey Karepov and Mikhail Timofeev, who had authority in the criminal circles of the region. They attracted Marat Kadyrov and Andrey Paley to participate in the community, for which they received money.

The investigation claims that in 2004 Kadyrov threw two grenades at a businessman who was receiving scrap metal in the village of Progress in the Amur Region. The entrepreneur died, but due to circumstances beyond the control of the accomplices.

Later, Mistryukov and Furgal ordered the murder of another businessman, with whom they had a long commercial dispute. Paley in October of the same year shot the merchant several times, which made him die on the spot. To cover up the crime, already in 2005, accomplices killed a man close to Furgal's entourage.

The criminal case was sent to the Supreme Court of Russia to consider changing the territorial jurisdiction. The Mistryukov case was separated into a separate proceeding, and Timofeev disappeared from the investigation, he was put on the wanted list. Other members of the group are still under investigation.
