In the Czech Republic, investigators suspected another Russian citizen of involvement in the explosions at an ammunition depot in Vrbetica. Writes about this edition Seznam with reference to an informed source.
So, in addition to Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov, another suspect in this case is an employee of the Russian Embassy, Sergei Fedotov, who allegedly was engaged in the manufacture of an explosive device.
“One of the team members was Sergei Fedotov, who, according to the findings of the Czech investigative authorities, is an expert on poisons and explosives,” the article says.
It is noted that the Russian worked in the Russian diplomatic mission in the Czech Republic and flew out of the country along with the deported embassy staff.
Earlier, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the accusations of the Czech side of Petrov and Boshirov’s involvement in the explosions in Vrbetica are absurd.
We will remind, on April 17, the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrei Babish announced that the authorities of the republic suspect the special services of the Russian Federation of involvement in what happened in Czech warehouses in 2014. In this regard, 18 Russian diplomats were expelled from the country. In addition, the police put on the wanted list of Russian citizens Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.
The next day, Moscow, in retaliation, declared 20 employees of the Czech embassy persona non grata and expelled them, denying Prague’s accusations.
