Pavel Durov is suspected of attacking a traffic cop

Petersburg’s “Fifth” TV channel published a report about the attack on a policeman on the embankment of the Griboyedov Canal. Commentators in social networks notice that the person in the video, who drove the car behind the wheel, looks like Pavel Durov.
As far as can be judged from the video of operational shooting, the driver of the car hit a police officer, then parked on the embankment of the Griboedov channel. An unknown guard went to the police, and a man in black clothes (presumably the driver) headed towards Nevsky Prospekt.

Peter Shkumatov, the leader of the automobile community “Blue Buckets”, said in a comment to the ” Russian News Service ” that the founder of the social network “Vkontakte” Pavel Durov is driving a car with numbers O388MP98.

Bloggers noticed that the car with the same numbers was seen on the flash mob with the distribution of T-shirts , held in July 2012.


The head of the press service of VKontakte George Lobushkin informs us in the commentary that at that time Durov was not driving the car.

If you unscrew the contrast on one of the photos, you can distinguish the features of the person behind the wheel.

In the comments on his page in the “VKontakte” Lobushkin notices that the person in the photos on Durov does not look like.


Paul himself repeatedly stated that he does not have personal cars, but he moves on foot and by metro. In comments “VKontakte” in the group “Zukerberg Call” Durov trolit: both readers and employees of the press service.





Judging by the report on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for the Leningrad region , the incident occurred on April 5.

On April 5, 2013 at 19-20 in St. Petersburg at the intersection of Sadovaya and Moyka embankment streets by the road patrol inspector for violation of traffic rules, an attempt was made to stop a Mercedes car belonging to a 30-year-old resident of St. Petersburg, an employee of one of the OJSC. The driver did not react to the police officer’s legal request for a stop. Inspector of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate on the patrol car “VAZ-21140” with flashing special signals turned on organized the persecution. The offender continued to ignore repeated demands for a halt. Near the house 21 along the Embankment of the Griboedov Canal, the driver stopped in a jam, then abruptly started moving and hit a visiting DPS inspector. At this time another inspector tried to help in apprehending the offender, but a 31-year-old passenger of a foreign car came out of the Mercedes car and, using physical force, prevented the inspector of traffic police from arresting the driver, who disappeared in an unknown direction. The passenger was detained and taken to the 78th police department for further investigation. The police officer, who was hit, with bruises and leg grazes in a satisfactory condition, is directed to outpatient treatment.

: In the traffic police department in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region commented briefly: “It was not Durov.”

Nevertheless, in the Investigative Committee a criminal case against the driver of Mercedes is started, but his identity is not specified. This is reported by ITAR-TASS .

It is worth adding that last week in the media the fake photo shooting of Durov in women’s clothing spread . By the link more pictures and hypho.
