First deputy president of Russia’s Central Bank seriously injured in an assassination attempt Wednesday evening
The condition of Andrei Kozlov, first deputy president of Russia’s Central Bank seriously injured in an assassination attempt Wednesday evening, remains critical, a source in the Moscow law enforcement said. Doctors refrain from making any forecasts. “After surgery at hospital N 33 in the Sokolniki district Kozlov was moved to the intensive care ward. He is under the doctors’ constant observation,” the source said. Kozlov received bullet wounds in the back and the head. The Ostroumov hospital N 33 is one of Moscow’s oldest. It opened in 1887. It specializes in treating those injured as a result of explosions, terrorist attacks and other emergencies. Kozlov was attacked at 21:30 Moscow time outside the Spartak indoor stadium in the Sokolniki district after a corporate soccer match between two teams of CBR employees. The prosecutor’s office has opened a criminal case of “attempted murder.” Investigators suspect the banker’s professional activity might be involved. Kozlov is responsible for the licensing of commercial banks’ activity. Other versions will be considered, too. According to the prosecutor’s office there were two gunmen. A massive manhunt for the attackers is on.
