Irina also claims that when her son was kidnapped, Shaposhnikov allegedly inflicted her bodily harm. He also allegedly threatened volunteers of the human rights organization that was conduction search operations.

The court ruled that the children stay with the mother. Irina thinks that possibly it was her reluctance to officially deliver the real estate over to Shaposhnikov was the reason for kidnapping her son.

However, the lawyer Tatiana Stukalova accused Irina of libel.

“I would like to stress that all information this woman gives is a lie. How can a father kidnap his own son? Both parents have equal rights.  Her story is all twisted. She wants the apartment, the house and the money. My client only earns this much money, he cannot satisfy all her demands”.

According to Dragomirova's lawyers, Shaposhnikov submitted to court a note certifying his salary at 11 thousand rubles.

Main Internal affairs Directorate of Kemerovo region prevented crime bosses’ attempt on raider takeover. Currently a criminal case is under investigation. It was initiated over extortion of large sums of money from a Kuzbass businessman, as well as over attempts to alievate his rights for the enterprise.

According to preliminary data, throughout 2009-2010 crime bosses, well known in criminal circles, constantly put psychological pressure on the businessman. It was often accompanied by threats and beatings. “The suspects put their own security service on the enterprise, limited access for the owners, and began to control financial flows”.

Police investigators presumed that a notorious organized crime group leader, who often resorts to the legal assistance of the Bar Regionservice, is one of the main organizers of this crime. As the result of this planned pressure on the businessman, his share of the registered capital amounting to 52 % was transferred to one of Regionservice leaders. Andrey Muravyov and Andrey Kirikov were among unofficial leaders of the Bar Regionservice.

Main Investigations Directorate of Kemerovo region initiated a criminal case under article 163, part 3 (extortion), of the Russian Federation Criminal Code. The case is under investigation.
