the Corporal of special troops 45 - go shelf VDV 33 - summer Alexander Markelov in some months after Dmitry Holodova`s murder has contacted a management MK also has declared that wishes to help to an investigation for the compensation declared by the newspaper. Such offers, including obviously roguish character, in the newspaper then arrived it is a lot of, and consequently colleagues of the killed journalist have concerned the corporal with watchfulness, but nevertheless have decided to organise a meeting of mister Markelov with the inspector on this business by Leonid Konovalovym.
At this meeting commando Markelov has told that the diplomat with an explosive for the journalist did the chief spetsotrjada special troops VDV major Vladimir Morozov. It has visited at the major an office when that just was going to do a mine - a trap (on a table at Morozova the diplomat and a detonator lay).

MK has paid to corporal Markelov for the help to a consequence $2 thousand Then the most interesting has begun: the consequence has admitted leak about the indications given by the corporal to observe, how there will be themselves messages alleged murderers. Vladimir Morozov has properly beaten corporal Markelov, and colonel Pavel Popovsky has offered the undesirable witness $2 thousand to return to the newspaper, and also new apartment if only that has refused the indications. The State Office of Public Prosecutor had to hide commando Markelov on secret apartment that with it have not finished to court.

However, he answered some specifying questions of lawyers of defendants, what not all after the lapse of years can remember, and asked the judge to freshen in its memory of the indication of four-year prescription. However colonel Serdjukov while did not begin to do it - after all it is necessary to the witness still a minimum two days of interrogations. Nevertheless Dmitry Holodova Yury Viktorovich`s father has told to the correspondent upon termination of yesterday`s interrogation: I am inclined to trust more to the witness who says that does not remember in details everything that was in 1994, than to defendants who on court have remembered all to within a minute .
Lawyers of defendants left from yesterday`s session more gloomy a cloud, and almost all have refused dialogue with journalists. Only the defender of the colonel Popovsky Elena Tomashevsky has told some words: While the witness tells bajku in which plausibility it is very difficult to me to believe .
