The steep turns of the Russian justice

A Russian journalist is likely to be charged with assisting in LUKOIL vice president’s kidnapping

Yury Spirin, a correspondent for the Russian newspaper Izvestia, was summoned for interrogation. The questoning of the journalist is connected with Sergey Kukura's kidnapping, the vice president of the Russian oil giant LUKOIL. Yury Spirin published exclusive materials connected with the incident. When Spirin left the police station, he actually became an accomplice to Kukura’s kidnapping.

The newspaper Izvestia published an article by Yury Spirin yesterday. The article was devoted to previously unknown details of Sergey Kukura’s disappearance and to its investigation. The reaction from Russia’s law-enforcement bodies was immediate. They all began to reject the information with the help of mass media. Furthermore, the author of the article was summoned to go to the Office of the Public Prosecutor of the Moscow region to be questioned.

The police are very interested in the person who informed the journalist on the process of the investigation. The article referred to a member of the investigation group. The police wanted to know who that person was. Yuri Spirin was fulfilling his professional duty when he was working on his article, whereas the unknown police officer gave away secrets of the investigation.

However, Yury Spirin refused to answer any questions. There was no lawyer with him. Russian laws are on the side of the person being questioned in this case. Moreover, a Russian journalist is entitled not to reveal his sources of information until a court orders him to do so. Yet, the Office of the Public Prosecutor of the Moscow region warned Spirin that he would be charged with assisting in the kidnapping if he remained silent. Why would prosecutors make such a warning to a journalist?

It is worth mentioning here that the oil company LUKOIL is actually a co-owner of the Izvestia. The company also announced a reward of one million dollars for any information about the kidnapping of its vice president. Nevertheless, LUKOIL preferred to hand the journalist over to the hands of the Moscow regional police.

There can be two clear conclusions made in this respect. First of all, the investigation is completely at a loss. There is no theory to explain what really happened. Second, none of the members of the investigation team will say a word to journalists, as this is too dangerous. Therefore, we are not likely to discover the truth. This kind of propaganda is called an information blockade.
