After the recent arrest the health condition of well-known Armenian businessman and philanthropist Levon Hayrapetyan has got worse, says "Levon Hayrapetyan" page in Facebook.
Hayrapetyan's friend Matsak Poladyan says that his friend has diabetes and needs insulin injections.
Hayrapetyan pleads non-guilty. Some Russian businessmen believe that the charge against him has been framed up but they do not specify why.
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.
