Ex-colonel Murdered in Moscow

Yuri Budanov, Russian Army ex-colonel, convicted of murdering a teenage Chechen woman, has been murdered in the center of Moscow. 

Today, at 12:20 AM on Komsomolsky Prospekt an unknown person shot Budanov with a firearm and fled away in a Mitsubishi car. Within half an hour after the crime the car was found. Police discovered a pistol with a silencer inside the car. 

In 2000 Colonel Budanov was found guilty of the kidnapping and strangling of an 18-year-old Chechen girl Elza Kungayeva. He was released from jail in 2009, human rights activists were angered, also Budanov's release sparked protests around Chechnya.
