“During the search within the criminal case, which was opened over the murder of federal judge Eduard Chuvashov on April 12, 2010, suspected killers, who are residents of the Moscow Region, Maxim Yuryevich Baklagin, who was born in 1985 and was on the federal wanted list, and Vyacheslav Yevgenyevich Isayev, born in 1985, who were hiding in a rented flat in the Vladimir Region, were detained in a special operation by the FSB agents on June 26,” the public relations centre said.
Eduard Chuvashov was gunned down in the morning on April 12, 2010, at the entrance of the house, where he lived in Strelbishchensky Bystreet in downtown Moscow, when the latter was going out of his flat.
