Commandos: Levon Hayrapetyan's arrest is a result of hard work of Azerbaijani and Russian secret services

 A Karabakh businessman Levon Hayrapetyan's arrest is a result of hard work of Azerbaijani and Russian secret services, the Karabakh war hero, Arkadiy Ter-Tadevosyan (Commandos) said at today's press-conference. 

He thinks that Russia's leadership has nothing in common with Hayrapetyan's detaining, but the case was fabricated by the efforts of representatives of the Russian secret services.  He also added that Hayrapetyan's contribution in development of Karabakh, financing of the army, his intention to open a military college in Karabakh have become the reason for the Azerbaijani scheming. "Baku had a target - to liquidate Hayrapetyan, but will not manage to do that", - he said. 

For his part, Colonel Artur Aleksanyan expressed bewilderment that the Russian court refused to change the measure of restraint. He also added that as far as he knows, president of Karabakh and high-rank officials of Armenia have been dealing with the case at the top level. 

To remind, the Russian special services have detained one of the richest Armenian businessmen in the world Levon Hayrapetyan on suspicion of being privy to the notorious "Kingisep" criminal group.  According to Rosbalt, Hayrapetyan was detained on Tuesday upon arriving in Moscow from his home in Monaco. Shortly the investigators are planning to petition the Basmanny Court to arrest the businessman. They are currently investigating the case of Sergey-Finagin's "Kingisepp" group, which together with Alexander Matusov's "Schelkovo" gang, is believed to have done a number of contract killings first for businessman Georgy Safiyev (killed in the United States) and then for former Senator Igor Izmestyev (who is now in jail for life). And it was Izmestyev who said that Levon Hayrapetyan was privy to some of the killings, particularly, those related to the Bashneft oil company.
