According to the newspaper StarGazete, Ruslan Papaskeri is also accused of at least one more murder in Istanbul, which had been committed earlier, but the paper didn't disclose any details.

Meanwhile, a Turkish newspaper Milliyet writes with reference to the investigation that The Zone (Ruslan Papaskeri) was a member of a group of killers, who were directly involved in the murder of 3 Chechen refugees in Istanbul's Zeytinburnu district in 2011.

 

The newspaper reported that The Zone had finished off the wounded Chechens by shooting in their heads.

 

The investigators managed to discover using a video from street surveillance cameras, and established that Ruslan Papaskeri had been wearing a wig.

 

According to the newspaper, MIT agents and a SWAT team of the anti-terror department of Istanbul police took part in investigation and detention of the 6 defendants in the case of a series of killings of Chechen refugees. Surveillance of suspects has been conducted for over a year.

 

It also reported that The Zone (Ruslan Papaskeri) is accused of murdering the representative of the Caucasus Emirate, Ali Osayev (aka Musa Atayev) in 2009 and is involved in the murder of Islam Dzhanibekov in 2008.
