The Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia finished investigation of a probe into Ilkin Ismail, Ruslan Kurbanov and Tural Kurbanov. Depending on the role of each they are accused of committing offenses under Part 1 of Article 318, Article 319 and Part 2 of Article 162 of the Criminal Code of Russia (use of violence against a representative of authority, assault of a representative of authority, robbery).
According to the investigation, in May 2021, traffic police officers of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate of the Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Moshkovsky District of the Novosibirsk Region were chasing a car, the driver of which did not fulfill the requirements to stop. Ruslan Kurbanov and Ilkin Ismailov were in the cabin of the car as passengers. After stopping near the village of Moshkovo, Kurbanov refused to show his identity documents, then, together with Ismailov, showed active resistance, expressed insults and used violence against the police, striking them numerous times on the head and body.
After the mass media published a video from the scene of the violent resistance against police officers, the victim under another probe recognized Kurbanov as one of his attackers. The probe was transferred to the Investigative Committee of Russia. It was established that in October 2020 in the city of Novosibirsk Kurbanov, in response to a justified remark from a passerby in connection with improper parking, together with his brother Tural Kurbanov, beat the victim, threatened him with death and demanded money from him.
The investigators collected enough evidence for the criminal case to be transferred for approval of an indictment and subsequent referral to court.
