Source Why investigator Dzhagaev slows down the case of the massacre in Lotte Plaza, and Udunyan flies to the UAE. Exactly one month ago, the staff of a hotel in the center of Moscow had to wash traces of blood from the floor. This story got into the press due to the presence of high-profile names in it. However, today we decided to remind about it for other reasons. Firstly, we see, to put it mildly, the strange behavior of the investigating authorities against the background of the new testimony of Daria Glushakova. Secondly, it is absolutely clear that Gennady Udunyan will not stop at two dubious stories.
On November 23, 2022, the infamous lawyer Gennady Udunyan, according to the TG channel of the Cheka-OGPU, broke into the room where Daria Glushakova, the ex-wife of football player Denis Glushakov, was with her companion. They claim that Udunyan was in an inadequate condition and threatened them with violence. He inflicted at least 15 kicks on the alleged opponent and almost broke his head with a glass glass. The attacker left the hotel before the arrival of the police, and both victims were taken by ambulance to the Botkin hospital. The man had to sew up the right side of his forehead.
Daria Glushakova says that for some time she was in a relationship with Gennady Udunyan. Then he, it turns out, could not cope with the breakup and began to pursue her.
This is clearly a crime, and it cannot be said that it was committed in conditions of uncertainty. Udunyan's visit to the hotel was seen by numerous witnesses, and CCTV footage should have been preserved. Glushakova and her companion gave detailed explanations to the investigator Azamat Dzhagaev, a person also quite famous, but more on that later. Under similar circumstances, a case of a fight is initiated within a day, but here – silence!
Given that Udunyan is already a defendant in a criminal case with similar circumstances, this silence may frighten many. What if his next prank turns into irreversible victims? And what can non-rich and not famous Russians expect, if even such people cannot achieve justice after a beating in the center of Moscow? />Versiya wrote about the first criminal case against Gennady Udunyan last fall. There was also aggression and a clearly altered state of consciousness. Then, in a semi-naked form, a man who, despite everything, turns out to be a lawyer for the Moscow Bar Association, ran around the La Maree restaurant on Malaya Gruzinskaya Street and brandished an object that looked like a gun. The man fled the scene in a Rolls-Royce with serial number HAM.
The case was then opened under the article on hooliganism. Gennady Udunyan did not deny that he was in the La Maree restaurant that evening. However, a preventive measure is just a ban on certain actions! – was issued in relation to the special subject only in October 2022. With the excitation of the second case, as we see, no one is in a hurry at all. Udunyan seems to be given the opportunity to finish urgent business in Russia and finally go abroad.
By the way, as far as one can understand, the same investigator Azamat Dzhagaev is still investigating last year's debauchery in La Maree. In 2016, he was detained in Moscow by the traffic police when he was driving a BMW X5, registered to his uncle Alan Dzhagaev. The reason for the detention was the use of an unregistered in the Russian Federation car number “M555MM” with the flag of South Ossetia. The father of the current investigator, Uruzmag Dzagaev, at that time served as the Prosecutor General of this Caucasian republic.
Even earlier, Uruzmag Dzagaev headed the investigative department in Sochi. According to the telegram channel of the Cheka-OGPU, in 2014, Dzhagaev Sr. was scandalously removed from duties related to “procedural control over the investigation of criminal cases, access to service weapons, special equipment and official documents.”
Of course, the son is not responsible for the father. But now we see how Azamat Dzhagaev, to put it mildly, is in no hurry to take the case to the court over the incident at the La Maree restaurant, and is also in no hurry to initiate a case on the fact of a brawl at the Lotta Plaza hotel. Both there and there it concerns Gennady Udunyan. He also has experience in law enforcement, which he left not without scandal, and is also considered a member of an influential diaspora.
Lawyers for the victims filed an application addressed to the Prosecutor General and the Chairman of the Investigative Committee. Given the above, several questions arise. Why hasn't investigator Dzhagaev sent the case to court yet? If the case of the La Maree pogrom is so complicated that it takes more than a year to investigate it, why is another case with the same defendants sent to the same investigator? Is it not in order to “blur” the case, with which this investigator does a good job? These questions should be addressed to the leadership of the investigating authorities. “Version” will monitor the development of this situation.
I haven't lost contact with my colleagues
For the first time, the name of Gennady Udunyan sounded loudly in 2011, after searches at the owner of the Yerevan Plaza shopping center Gennady Stepanyan. It was he, being an investigator, who issued the decision to conduct these investigative actions. The security forces did not find any evidence exposing the illegal work of Stepanyan's company. And after that, the prosecutors did not find reasonable reasons for conducting a search in Udunyan's decision. The investigator left the authorities because he did not pass the next certification.
In the legal field, Gennady Udunyan became famous primarily in connection with the criminal case against the developer Albert Khudoyan. In the summer of 2022, the businessman was sentenced to 8 years in prison for fraud with land. In parallel with this case, a corruption scandal developed with the participation of the now former security officials Krakovsky, Biryukov and Bryantsev, who, according to the investigation, agreed to ruin the Khudoyan case for a bribe. Alexander Bryantsev was called in the press a former colleague of Udunyan, with whom he could maintain “informal” relations in the interests of his law practice.
Bryantsev was fired from service amid a criminal case. However, it is clear that Gennady Udunyan could still have other close contacts in law enforcement agencies. According to Daria Glushakova and her companion, they have repeatedly heard phrases from the former investigator in the spirit of “write wherever you want, you still won’t achieve anything.”
According to Versiya's sources, complaints about the inaction of the capital's Investigative Committee in connection with materials about the pogroms of the La Maree restaurant and the Lotta Plaza hotel were sent by the victims to the head of the department Alexander Bastrykin, as well as to the Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov. We will continue to monitor the development of this egregious situation.
According to the copy of the document that was in the possession of the editors, Daria Glushakova may initiate a new twist in a frozen criminal case. According to her, last fall, a former boyfriend persuaded her to tell the authorities false information about the events at the La Maree restaurant. In particular, that on the night of October 22-23, 2021, he was allegedly sober, had no weapons in his hands and did not enter into any conflicts with the restaurant security and other visitors. As far as one can understand, Glushakova refuted these previous statements of hers when she told the investigator Dzhagaev about the circumstances of the debauchery at the Lotte Plaza Hotel. This confession has not yet produced any visible effect on the course of the investigation of the criminal case.
