KRASNODAR, February 22 (Itar-Tass) – Nikolai Nesterenko wounded in an assassination attempt in the Black Sea resort town of Anapa early on Friday has been discharged from hospital as his condition is quite satisfactory, sources from the headquarters of the Anapa Cossack society told Tass.
Nesterenko is deputy to the ataman of the Anapa city Cossack community.
An attempt on his life was made early on Friday. His driver, Viktor Zhuk, was killed in the assassination attempt. He drove over to Nesterenko’s house early on Friday in a Toyota Camry to pick him up, and “when Nesterenko got into the car, an unidentified person made several shots from a 7.62 caliber gun at him and the driver,” sources from the regional investigative committee said earlier.
The driver died at the scene, while Nesterenko was wounded. Criminal proceedings have been instituted under the articles “Murder” and “Attempt on the life of two people”. Nesterenko’s professional activity is one of the versions considered by the investigation. Law enforcement agencies have identikits of the attackers.
