The deceased billionaire Bosov could be a witness in a trial against Bykov
The unexpected death of a Russian billionaire Dmitry Bosov may “ruin the case” against the Krasnoyarsk businessman Anatoly Bykov.

An interesting version combining two strange and high-profile events of the last days - the arrest of the famous Krasnoyarsk businessman Anatoly Bykov and the mysterious death of a billionaire Dmitry Bosov was put forward by the popular blogger Alexei Egorov.

He refers to a statement from an anonymous source in the investigation that Bosov was supposed to be a witness against Anatoly Bykov, but probably chose to shoot himself because he was "tired of threats."

An option is not ruled out, according to Egorov, that Bosov was simply killed after learning that Bykov’s arrest was being prepared. And these two characters have been familiar with each other since the 1990s.

Even in those years, according to investigators, “a 23-year-old member of the criminal group, Alexander Naumov, had a conflict with Anatoly Bykov over the unjust, in the opinion of the first, distribution of income from joint activities.” And it seems that Bykov, having decided that Naumov wants to kill him, instructed a certain Tatarenkov to organize the murder of Naumov.

And in 1995, this Tatarenkov himself ordered several assassination attempts, including against Dmitry Bosov, whom Bykov had saved then, allegedly saying that “Bosov must not be removed - he is smart, albeit nutty, he is needed for business.” Both, Bykov and Bosov, in the 1990s were co-owners of the Krasnoyarsk aluminum smelter.

Egorov believes that with the death of witness Bosov, Bykov’s case could fall apart in court. True, he does not exclude such an option: Dmitry Bosov will suddenly be alive and healthy in court!
