Headline: Internationally wanted Russian citizens were convoyed from Thailand by Russian MIA National Central Bureau of Interpol
“Officers of the National Central Bureau of Interpol of the Russian MIA deported two citizens of the Russian Federation suspected of felonies from the Kingdom of Thailand,” said the Russian MIA official representative Irina Volk.
In March 2002, Andrey Dzyatkovsky born in 1982 in the Smolensk Region purchased a Glock pistol and a magazine to it with 17 live cartridges intending to perpetrate a contract murder. As a result of the attempt committed on a busy street in Sochi, a woman born in 1955 exiting her Bentley car was killed by a headshot. A man born in 1973 who was a chance witness of the murder did not become another victim of the contract killer by a miracle, but was wounded by Dzyatkovsky two times from the same pistol. Doctors managed to save the man’s life having provided him timely and highly qualified medical aid.
After the committed murder, the offender escaped without a trace. The authorities initiated a criminal case on that fact, and Dzyatkovsky was put on the Interpol’s wanted list.
The second deported man is Anatoly Samodov born in 1961 in Arkhangelsk – investigators suspect him of being a member of a criminal community in 2009–2010 formed to gain abnormal profit through monopolization of the construction sand market in the Arkhangelsk Region. Samodov and his accomplices created conditions to eliminate competitors in the region and forced businessmen to conclude sale and purchase agreements for the construction material only through the entities controlled by the criminal community.
In April 2013, Samodov decided to escape from Russia using a tourist visa, and in May 2013 he was put on the international wanted list.
Both defendants were detained in Thailand. Convoyed by officers of the Russian Bureau of Interpol, they were delivered to Moscow and remanded in custody for further investigation actions.
