Tsepovyaz ex-wife's arrest reduced after her hunger strike
The ex-spouse of Tsapok's gang member is accused of extorting more than 70 million rubles from the entrepreneur.
The Rostov Regional Court reduced Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz’s ex-wife Natalia Strishnya's arrest to eight days in jail - until July 16, Kommersant reports. Earlier, Strishnaya went on a hunger strike, calling herself innocent. The lawyer noted that Strishnaya had leukemia, and detention in the SIZO is prohibited.
In early July, Natalia Strishnaya and her brother Ivan Strishny were arrested for one month and 25 days by the District Railway Court of Rostov-on-Don. The owner of Slava Kubani LLC, her brother, and entrepreneur Fedor Streltsov, who was put on the international wanted list, were accused of extorting 77 million rubles from the head of the local agricultural company YUST, Alexander Isyuk. Strishnaya filed an appeal with a request to put her under house arrest or to choose another preventive measure not related to detention.
In 2018, Strishnaya divorced Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz, a member of the Kushchevskaya gang of Tsapok, which kept local farmers at bay. In 2013, Tsepovyaz was placed to a colony in the Amur region.
