Rosgvardiya officers who prevented GTA gang escape awarded
The siloviki were awarded the Order of Courage and the Medal For Courage.
During a solemn ceremony at the Moscow Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War on Poklonnaya Hill, two employees of Rosgvardiya were awarded the Order of Courage and the Medal For Courage. Honorable awards were given to the siloviki for playing a key role in suppressing the escape of GTA gang members from the building of the Moscow Regional Court last summer.
Recall, the incident occurred in the building of the Moscow City Court on August 1, 2017. That day, five members of the GTA gang attacked guards in an elevator after hearing on their case. Bandits seized guns of the escort and took them hostage. After that, the armed gang brought the guards to the courtroom on the third floor, and opened fire at the officers of Rosgvardiya. The siloviki opened retaliatory fire.
As a result, an employee of Rosgvardiya was wounded. Three members of the GTA gang were liquidated in retaliatory fire. Among them there were Abdumukim Mamadchonov, Mirzomavlon Mirzosharipov and Holik Subkhanov. Umar Khasanov died from wounds received in a hospital.
After the shootout, a criminal case was initiated under three articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation: 317 (Encroachment on the Life of a Law Enforcement Officer), part 4 of Art. 226 (Theft of Weapons), part 3 of Art. 30 and part 3 of Art. 313 (Attempted Escape from custody).
Even before the shooting, members of the GTA gang were accused of a series of murders of drivers on the roads of Moscow, the Moscow region and the Kaluga region in the period from 2012 to 2014. The criminals left spikes on the roads and waited for any driver to get his/her tires flat and stop on the sidelines. After that, they approached the car and killed everyone attended.
