Bus with Mexican football fans runs over motorcyclist in St. Petersburg
The fans who carried a ‘cardboard Mexican’ along were also injured in the car accident.
A bus with Mexican fans has run over a motorcyclist at one of the crossroads. The motorcycle driver has been hospitalized; the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate is looking into the circumstances of the accident.
It turned out that the victims of the accident are the four Mexicans carrying along a cardboard copy of their fifth friend Javier, who was not allowed to go to the Mundial by his wife.
Lawyers of the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company (UGMK) – of which Javier himself was a guest – will represent the interests of the Mexicans, who are now prohibited from leaving the country due to proceedings.
“We were very impressed by the Mexican friends, so it was decided to help them with legal advice within the framework of Russian legislation. This is our manifestation of innate hospitality and a sense of responsibility for foreign guests,” the UGMK press service told Komsomolskaya Pravda.

The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
