Book Most High-Profile Crimes of the XXI Century in Russia presented at Moscow International Book Exhibition

The book The Most High-Profile Crimes of the XXI Century in Russia by the Head of Media Relations Department of the RF Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin was presented today at the Moscow International Book Exhibition.

This is the first book from the series The Mysteries of the Investigative Committee which includes 5 documentary stories of the most high-profile cases investigated by the Investigative Committee from the first day of its existence and up until now: the story of Kushchevka gang, the case of Taganrog maniac, grand stealing of budget funds in Moscow Region, murder of Anna Politkovskaya and death of Bulgaria MV passengers.

During the presentation Mr. Markin elaborated on each of the case described in the book and told how he worked on the book and the work of investigators. Speaking about one of the chapters telling about a cruel murder of two small sisters  by a Taganrog maniac he pointed out that the reader “will get a real idea about the work done by an investigator for whom ether are no unsolvable crimes.” Answering the questions from the host, he added that “in order to stay impartial some investigators just abstract away from the rest of the world: they don’t listen to the radio or watch TV, they don’t surf the Internet so that they could go away from that pressure and get focused on facts alone.”

Considering that the book contains some violent scenes reader discretion is advised.
