Three men related to Chubais’ assassination have been found

Prosecutors have indicted three former servicemen in connection with the attempted assassination of Russia's former privatization czar, Anatoly Chubais, officials said Monday. The Prosecutor General's office said it had completed an investigation into the attack and filed formal charges against Vladimir Kvachkov, a retired military intelligence colonel, and former paratroopers Robert Yashin and Alexander Naidyonov. The trio were charged with the attempted murder and illegal possession and production of weapons and will remain in custody pending their trial, it said in a statement.

Chubais, the head of the state-controlled Unified Energy Systems power grid, was ambushed on his way to work near his country home outside Moscow on March 17 by assailants who detonated a bomb and raked his armored car with automatic weapons fire. No one was hurt.

The Prosecutor General's office did not comment on the suspects' motives, but some Russian media said that investigators believed that the suspects had targeted Chubais because of their political views, the AP reports.

Chubais is widely reviled by Russians for presiding over the controversial sellout of state assets in the 1990s, when a handful of government-linked businessmen snapped up huge state-run enterprises at cut-rate prices.
