MOSCOW, February 18. /TASS/. Dmitry Kamenshchik, the actual owner of the Moscow Domodedovo airport has been arrested for security violations that made the terrorist attack possible in the airport in 2011, Vladimir Markin, spokesman with the Investigative Committee told TASS.

"The actual owner of the Domodedovo airport Dmitry Kamenshchik has been detained. He has been charged with a crime under part 3 article 238 of the Criminal Code ("Execution of works or services that do not meet safety requirements, resulting in the death of two or more persons")," the representative of the Investigative Committee said.

The official recalled that former head of Russian representative office of Airport Management Company Limited Svetlana Trishina, Managing Director of Domodedovo Airport Aviation Security Andrei Danilov and Director of airport terminal Vyacheslav Nekrasov were earlier arrested under the criminal case related to the terrorist act committed in Domodedovo Airport in January 2011.

"According to the investigation, Kamenshchik, Trishina, Nekrasov and Danilov introduced a new inspection system at the entrances of the airport, which led to a higher degree of the airport’s vulnerability and as a consequence the airport services did not meet safety requirements. As a result, in January 2011 Magomed Yevloyev freely entered the building of the airport complex of Domodedovo international airport with an explosive device hidden under his clothes and blew himself up," Markin said.

Dmitry Kamenshchik (47) is the chairman of the airport’s board of directors. According to Forbes, in 2015 he ranked 27th on the list of the richest people in Russia with the fortune of $3.8 bln. He is also known as the founder of the East Line airline company in the early 1990s.
