The Moscow City Court extended the measure of restraint for the four defendants in the case of the ex-governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergei Furgal. Marat Kadyrov, Nikolai Mistryukov (under house arrest), Andrei Paley and Andrei Karepov will remain under arrest for another three months.

As the TASS, the defendants in the case of organizing the murders of entrepreneurs, where Sergei Furgal is the main accused, can appeal this decision on appeal. Ex-deputy of the Khabarovsk Regional Duma, director of the Dalpromsnab company and former business partner of Furgal Nikolai Mistryukov was arrested in November 2019, as well as the security inspector of Mendeleevo airport in Yuzhno-Kurilsk Marat Kadyrov, general director of Alteza Andrey Paley and ex-assistant to Furgal Andrey Karepov. Mistryukov pleaded guilty to organizing the murders and entered into a pre-trial cooperation agreement.

In February, the ex-governor of the Khabarovsk Territory, Sergei Furgal, was charged with the final version in the case of contract killings. He is charged with attempted murder, murder of two or more persons, committed by an organized group of mercenaries in order to conceal another crime. In addition, Furgala is accused of illegal acquisition, possession and carrying of firearms. The investigation concluded that Furgal is the organizer of a criminal group that in 2004-2005 tried to kill Alexander Smolsky and committed the murders of Yevgeny Zori and Oleg Bulatov.

Sergey Furgal detained July 9 2020 on suspicion of assassination and murder organizations entrepreneurs. Former governor pleads not guilty and refuses conclude a pre-trial agreement... investigative committee extended the investigation period until May 8, 2021, and the Basmanny Court extended the preventive measure until June 8, 2021.
