Problem banks may explain Kozlov murder

Former chairman of the Central Bank of Russia, Viktor Gerashchenko, was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying on Monday 30 October that the murder of the CBR's first deputy head in mid-September may have been ordered by a client of a commercial bank under scrutiny for alleged violations of banking legislation.

Andrei Kozlov, 41, was gunned down in a contract-style killing on September 13 this year, and died in hospital the following day.
