MOSCOW, October 7 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has given instructions to find all participants in the incident with shooting into the air in wedding celebrations in central Moscow.
“Moscow is a multi-ethnic city, and people of many nationalities live in it. However, what is admissible in an aul (village in the Caucasus or Central Asia - ed) is inadmissible in such a megalopolis as Moscow,” the mayor told Rossiya-1 television on Sunday.
The mayor said he had given instructions to expose all participants in that act of hooliganism. “This is defiance to traditions, to people around you, these are inadmissible things,” Sergei Sobyanin believes.
Last Sunday, police detained a wedding motorcade on the crossroads of Mokhovaya and Tverskaya Streets, as the latter were shooting into the air. About 15 people were brought to the police station and administrative protocols were filed against them for violation of the rules to use the sound signals in the cars and the use of shaded windows. The administrative protocol was drawn up against Agalarov, who opened fire in the centre of Moscow, for violation of the rules to use traumatic weapons.
The court sentenced him to 15 days of administrative arrest, founding him guilty of petty hooliganism. Another participant in the incident was sentenced to five days of arrest.
