MOSCOW, January 18 (Itar-Tass) — The woman injured during the assassination of a criminal leader in central Moscow on Wednesday needs another surgery, the press service of the Sklifosovsky Institute of Emergency Medicine said on Friday.
“The patient is now in the operating room. Her ruptured spinal bone is treated and the vertebral column is strengthened,” a source from the press service said. The surgery will take several hours “as such surgical interventions always take a lot of time,” the source said.
Criminal leader Aslan Usoyan, 75, also known as Ded Khasan, was gunned down by professional killer in Povarskaya Street on January 16, as he emerged from a restaurant. A woman at the scene received two gunshot wounds and was rushed to Sklifosovsky hospital and operated upon.
The Investigative Committee said the killer had used a VAL silenced assault rifle which is standard equipment of special task force units. The dedicated ammunition can puncture bullet-proof vests of 2nd class or a 6mm-thick steel sheet.
Usoyan, a native of Georgia, was one of the most influential criminal leaders of the past two decades.
