Russia's gangster violence exploded on to the streets of London when a banker was gunned down entering his luxury Docklands home.


German Gorbuntsov was in the foyer of his apartment block near Canary Wharf when a would-be assassin sprayed shots at him with a submachine gun.


The 45-year-old collapsed at the scene and was fighting for his life last night. Armed police are on guard at the hospital where he is in a coma.

Friends of Mr Gorbuntsov fear that a mafia contract has been taken out on his life because he was a witness in the case of an attempted murder of another banker in 2009.

His neighbours in Byng Street on the Isle of Dogs, where serviced apartments cost  up to £200 a day, said a tearful blonde tried to reach the banker’s prone body.

Emma Key, 30, said the woman – in her 20s and thought to be his wife – was being held back by police officers.

‘She was obviously upset, she was crying. She was trying to get into the ambulance. A policeman was trying to hold her back.

‘The concierge told us he had been shot three times and that that was his wife.’

Tony Smith, a 26-year-old estate agent, drove down Byng Street only moments after the murder attempt.

He said: ‘I pulled my car up and looked down and saw his body, saw him. 

‘Police were surrounding him but there were only two police cars, and the rest came later.

‘The window was shot out on the door. I thought he had been stabbed at first. I didn’t expect this to happen in this block.’

Mr Gorbuntsov has been linked to an investigation into a gun attack on Alexander Antonov, whose son Vladimir once owned Portsmouth Football Club.

New evidence from Mr Gorbuntsov led to the case being reopened by the judicial authorities in Moscow.

The case had been put on ice because the mastermind behind the attack remained unidentified even after  three Chechens had been convicted of trying to kill Mr Antonov.

The same gang was also found guilty of assassinating Ruslan Yamadayev, one of five brothers from a clan that had challenged the power of Chechnya’s  Kremlin-backed president, Ramzan Kadyrov.

Vadim Vedenin, Mr Gorbuntsov’s lawyer, told Kommersant newspaper in Moscow that his client’s new testimony in the Antonov case had implicated two of his former business partners. 

The Russian banker had himself been suspected of involvement at one point.

The inquiry into Tuesday evening’s shooting is being led by the Metropolitan Police Trident gang crime command, which is said to be liaising with counter-terrorism officers.

Yesterday a spokesman for Scotland Yard said it was too early to speculate on whether the attack was linked to the Antonov investigation of 2009.

He also refused to reveal what weapon was used.

Mr Gorbuntsov, who used to own a number of banks in Russia and Moldova, has been living in exile in Britain.

He is on Moldova’s wanted list over allegations of involvement in an illegal bank takeover and embezzlement. Another of his lawyers, Valery Andronik, told Kommersant that the attack was unlikely to have been planned from within the former Soviet republic.

‘He told me several times, “If I go back to Russia, they will kill me”,’ said Mr Andronik.

It is understood that Mr Gorbuntsov spent time in jail before becoming a businessman in the early 1990s.

He set up nearly 40 companies involved in security, construction, real estate and finance.
Although counter-terror officers are involved, Mr Gorbuntsov’s  shooting is being put down to organised crime.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: ‘A man was shot a number of times as he entered a block of flats by a suspect who is described as white, six feet tall and of slim build. ‘He was wearing dark clothing and seen running away.’

  1. sad to know that a man was killed but main terorrists are britian which harbors all the criminals there so that they can bring stolen money from third country.

    The modus operandi of Britain is to make country and regions unstable and install british stooge with explicit instruction to bring the money -looted ones -to Britain from where it is not going to go anywhere else.
    Some oligarch Jews (like thee criminal U.K.-based fugitive oligarch Boris Berezovsky)
    were the stooge of British in Russia and they brought so many ill gotten money to uk. So did the Kuwaitis-who brought 4 billions of pounds within a week of first Iraq war problem in august 1990 -so has continued the massive loot of the rest of the world by the English .race through this money protection racket . It is money protection racket in the sense that those eliete’s money is protected only when it is made to be lodged in British London banks. The witness, who appeared on the Rossiya channel with his face hidden and was referred to as Pyotr, accused 61-year-old Berezovsky of killing Alexander Litvinenko because the former security officer knew how the exiled tycoon had obtained political asylum in Britain in 2003. This thief boris berezosvky is a terrorist as well who calls for violet end to Putin-the president who is one of the most loved of his countrymen compared to any in the world.
    As someone said “We live in a world where criminals are good guys and patriots are villains: where Berezovsky is a liberal "human rights" activist and Putin is a moral monster.” that putin who is one of the most popular leader of any in the world.
    say even if Russia destroys usa then if Britain or rather england is allowed to exist then the english parasitic dog race will ,by very parasitic nature, will try to disrupt Russia or other countries' existence. therefore instead of attacking usa or poland it is best policy of Russia to attrack and destroy to the whole of england which must be evaporated to a rubble.




    In fact Britain is running a protection racket in the world through the help of american army-(because Britain is a third rate country with fourth rate army so it cannot do it on its own).
    What Britain does is let the other countries be made instable (Kuwait, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan etc) then let the british stooge be installed there-those people who have no following in own country and with strict instruction to those stooges that they will bring the money to britan,-that is how London has enriched itself in last 15 years after fall of soviet union. Billions of soviet money have flown illegally to London and the british court -kangaroo court if ever there was any -have not let the money go citing “it will harm england’s balance of payment”?
    That is why british media gets incensed if the traitors like soviet spies are not left safe in Britain -because then the whole business of protection money racket and money that Britain gets is in jeopardy. That is what explains influx of foreign money to London and how London has overtaken new York in stock market. Forget about service industry -british are the most ill mannered race what service can they provide except protection racket on back of american arms? Britain is looting even usa. Through it is usa which has worked hard (through illegal invasions ) to make other countries unstable so that Britain can get money from protection of stooge elites of those countries..
    the modus operandi of Britain is to make country and regions unstable and install british stooge with explicit instruction to bring the money -looted ones -to Britain from where it is not going to go anywhere else.

    1. I assume you are Russian. Jews from Russia are largely Khazar (Ashkenazi)Jews and from what sketchy history is available, appear to be (those Khazars within the Cabal) using Judaism as a cover while they practice Luciferianism privately. No true Jew that I know would condone those beliefs. Many of the cabal also pose as Christians and Muslims too. David Wilcock says that at the top of the Cabal is no religious belief at all, just accounting and money types. The Cabal is an equal opportunity corrupter.

      The Rus people have a long history of conflict involving the Khazar peoples. The appear to have been involved in several bloody revolutions. I don't know Stalin's ethnic origins but he was from the Country of Georgia which was a former USSR province, and was the site of the ancient Khazar kingdom.

  2. The entire financial sector in Russia was created and controlled by Britain after and towards the collapse of the USSR. London based banks started operating in Moscow durinf the 70's with the finacial capital to buy up Russia's resources at firesale prices came from Rothschild/British financial transactions.

    Group Menetap and the Alfa Group are more that just banks they are a covert British run financial networks.



    Russia's shock therapists duting the 80 under Gorbachev were trained in London and Soros institutions in Vienna.
    Yet another British linked Russian mafia killed in London. Funny how London is the home to more terrorist groups and organised criminals in the world including those linked to terrorism against the US.
