In the capital of the Amur Region, Blagoveshchensk, a fired Central Bank employee killed colleagues and then committed suicide. The incident occurred on January 27 between 17 and 18 hours local time. At the moment, it is reliably known that the killer served as deputy head of the Main Directorate of the regional Central Bank. A criminal case was initiated under Part 2 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation "Murder of two or more persons".

According to the employees of the organization's Amur unit, immediately after the incident, some of them were evacuated from the building, and then asked to go home until the end of the day. The whole area adjacent to the building of the Central Bank was immediately cordoned off by the police.

Tatyana Rakhilova, head of the Central Bank of Russia Main Directorate for the Amur Region, and her deputies Svetlana Fedosova and Valery Smagin were killed in the bloody massacre. According to investigators, the murderer was one of the victims - the deputy head of the Main Directorate of the Regional Central Bank for the Amur Region Vladimir Lyovkin - after he shot (presumably from the Saiga carbine) three colleagues, he took his own life.

In an informal conversation, employees of the institution said that, according to their data, the cause of the crime could be either a Lyovkin cut or a demotion message. Employees of the organization asked not to give their names, since fear for their jobs.

According to preliminary information, the dead occupied high positions in the Amur Central Bank administration: from the head of the department to the acting head. head of management.

Now the investigators are working out several versions of what happened: from the hostile relationship between Levkin and colleagues before the reduction. Also, law enforcement agencies have to find out how an official was able to carry firearms to the territory of a protected strategic facility with metal detectors. Details of the Amur journalists are hoping to receive tomorrow.
