MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - The Nikulinsky district court of Moscow will pronounce Monday the verdict to Alexei Rusakov, who is accused of triggering a road accident, in which actress Marina Golub died.
The public prosecutor asked to sentence Rusakov to six years and six months in general regime penitentiary and strip him of driving license for three years.
Rusakov acknowledged that he was involved in the fatal road accident, but refused to plead guilty. The lawyer claimed that Rusakov started driving on the amber warning signal, and other drivers, according to traffic rules, were to permit him to make a maneuver.
The road accident occurred overnight to October 10, 2012 on the crossroad of Vernadsky Avenue and Lobachevsky Street. According to the police, Rusakov’s Cadillac started driving on the red light and rammed in a Hyundai, in which the actress was. Then Kia and Lada cars stuck in these cars. Golub and the Hyundai driver died. The Cadillac driver escaped from the crime scene.
Overnight to October 13, Rusakov has posted his video message in the internet, in which he acknowledged that he was driving the Cadillac car and explained the fact that he escaped from the crime scene because of shock.
Rusakov was detained thanks to a police operation, as he was being flushed out from a settlement in the Moscow region where he was hiding. He was accused of violating the traffic rules that entailed the death of two and more people through negligence and leaving a person in danger. These criminal articles envisage a term of up to seven years in prison and up to one year in prison, respectively.
