The possible owner of a Mercedes car that got into a fatal accident near Sochi, in which Russian journalist and TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak was traveling, is businessman Malkhaz Babaev. This became known to “Komsomolskaya Pravda” from one of the acquaintances of the entrepreneur.
According to the newspaper, the car may belong to Babaev, and not to a VIP-class carrier. As the interlocutor of “KP” told, VIP transportation is not the main source of income for a businessman. “His main business is the sale of real estate on the first line,” said an acquaintance.
On Saturday, October 9, the Mercedes car in which the TV presenter was traveling was fatally involved in an accident. He drove into the oncoming lane and made a head-on collision with Volkswagen. The accident killed a 35-year-old woman. Mercedes driver Oleg Tsoi pleaded guilty. He was placed under house arrest.
Sobchak immediately left the scene of the accident and went to the airport. A flurry of criticism fell on the TV presenter. Later, the journalist commented on the incident, saying that she did not rush the driver, but left the scene of the accident only after the doctors were summoned to the victims.
