Chelyabinsk: personalities of teenagers who attacked policemen screaming AUE identified
Personality of several teenagers, who literally attacked police patrol cars at the festival of paints in Chelyabinsk, are identified. This is reported by the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the city.
It is noted that the violators were not previously registered in the MIA database, did not fall under the MIA supervision and were not brought to administrative responsibility.
"A preventive conversation was held with the children and their parents," the Interior Ministry stated.
As the CrimeRussia reported previously, the incident occurred on May 27. Participants in Holi Festival of Colors came to the parking lot near Gorky Mall, where the event was to be held. However, the complex had unilaterally terminated the lease agreement, which might have triggered the indignation of the young people who came to the festival. They took it out on the law enforcement officers for some reason. Teenagers, among whom there were many girls, began throwing dry paint at the patrol cars and kicking them, accompanying their actions with obscene language and shouting "Cops are roughing us up!" and AUE slogans.
AUE (short for Russian "Prisoners’ Ways are Alike" or “Convict-Thug Unity”) is a criminal subculture. AUE movement is a set of rules and concepts that originated from prison, and that the youngsters are supposed to follow – they suggest mainly donating money to the pooled cash fund to support prisoners. According to the latest data, the criminal community has the biggest impact on young people in Siberia, Primorye, the Volga region and the Urals, however young criminals have been seen in the central and southern parts of Russia, too.
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FPS) of Russia has been rocked by new scandals. Several regional FPS bosses and Nikolai Barinov, a former deputy head of the agency, have been detained for bribe-taking. What could be the consequences of these high-profile arrests for the penitentiary service as a whole and for its Director Gennady Kornienko?
