Vyacheslav Shevchenko’s testimony against Yuri Shutov

shevchenko against Shutov

On February 11, 1999, State Duma’s deputy Vyacheslav Shevchenko, living in Sankt-Petersburg, acting as a witness, accuses Yuri Shutov of beeing a criminal authority and planning an attempt on his life.

Yuriy Shutov  – an early assistant in Sobchak’s administration who was fired after accusing the mayor’s office of corruption. See book by Shutov: “the Sobchak’s heart”.

After that, Shutov was accused of contract murders and sentenced to life imprisonment despite a public protest campaign.  Shutov died in Russian penal colony in 2015. In 2019, a Sankt-Petersburg TV accused him of “running several criminal gangs in the same time” and presented his case as an exemplary work of law enforcers.

Vyacheslav Shevchenko was indeed killed in 2004 on Cyprus (at that time Shutov in custody since several years). Only by 2019 Russia charged Mikhail Glushenko with this murder. Glushenko maintained straight contact with Gennady Petrov who is considered as criminal authority in Spain but in Russia enjoys high political power’s protection  (see also Petrov Kamenny ostrov for further details) and is not prosecuted. Except in the 90ths, when Petrov was also called head of a criminal gang, which involved law enforcers with work’s guns, by Russia’s Prosecutors.

On September 14, 2010, an application No. 20922/08 has been communicated to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Mr. Shutov alleged that sentencing him to lifetime imprisonment while he was not present in the courtroom amounts to inhuman treatment.

This is to remind who else accused Shutov of banditry:  Roman Tsepov, Former Ministry of Interior officer, co-founder, with Victor Zolotov, of security company called Baltik-Eskort; criminal authority Ruslan Koliak; former State Duma deputy and Soviet and Russian journalist Alexander Nevzorov (see mentions of Nevzorov by Marina Salye; in the Spanish criminal case of Tambov gang ; see Nevzorov at Tambovskaya gang leader Vladimir Kumarin’s birthday footage).

Outside Russia, no law enforcers’ reports endorse existence of the  “Shutov’s band”, unlike, for example, Izmaylovo, Solntsevo and Tambov gangs.
