MOSCOW, May 15 (RAPSI) – The Moscow Commercial Court will consider a bankruptcy petition filed by Gazprom Mezhregiongaz Moscow, a subsidiary of Russia's oil giant Gazprom, against Menshevik confectionary, which became the scene of the deadly shooting in 2017, on June 28, according to court records. 

Earlier, the Ninth Commercial Court of Appeals upheld dismissal of another bankruptcy claim against the Moscow confectionary.

In March, a Moscow court extended detention of ex-owner of Menshevik Ilya Averyanov in a case over shooting on the factory’s premises until June 28.

According to investigators, on December 27, 2017, a conflict arose between former and current owners of the factory. Ex-owner Averyanov allegedly took out the gun and shot several times, fatally wounding a guard.

The defendant was charged with murder. However, he insisted that he used the gun for the purposes of self-defense, and a shot was fired recklessly.
