Security forces detained killer of Yeti and Zorg
Companions of nationalist Demushkin were killed on February 18, 2014 in the Rodniki village, the Ramenskoe district.
Security forces arrested one of the killers of four members of organized crime group specialized in raiding and extortion from businessmen. This is a hands-massacre of nationalist Demushkin’s colleagues Alexander Shakirov nicknamed Zorg, Ivan Smirnov, known as Yeti, and Kirill and Alexander Kuzmins. The crime took place on February 18, 2014 in the Rodniki village, the Ramenskoe district. On that day, nationalists planned to hold a 'meeting' with representatives of the warring faction, but their opponents had no desire to negotiate. They just decided to eliminate them.
Companions of Demushkin were shot dead near the train station with Kalashnikov assault rifle. Three of them died on the spot while the fourth died in hospital. The killers escaped in Audi.
On this fact the ICR in the Moscow region opened a criminal case upon item (a), part 2 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code (Murder of two or more persons) and part 1 of Art. 222 of the Criminal Code (Illegal Weapons Trafficking).
The suspects in this case are members of a rival gang - 49-year-old Alexey, 59-year-old Alexander and 53-year-old Andrey Shorokhovs, as well as 42-year-old Leonid Sopilnyak. Brothers Shorokhov and Sopilnyak were declared wanted. It was noted that one of the brothers owned a variety of weapons - from a Makarov pistol to the Kalashnikov assault rifle. Later, the circle of wanted narrowed down to two people.
On the eve, the investigators reported on the detention of one of the suspects in the murder. The offender's name was not disclosed, but it is known that the detainee appeared to be the 44-year old man with a criminal record. Apparently, we are talking about Leonid Sopilnik, whom security forces detained in the Ramenskoe district. At the present time, the election of the measure of restraint is at stake.

After the murder of Aleksander Zakharchenko, everything has changed in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR). A redistribution of spheres of influence is ongoing in the region at all levels of the state (and not only state) power. It is not a secret that Denis Pushilin, Interim Acting Head of the DPR, has been dreaming about this post for four years. Although he was among the DPR leaders, being the Chairman of the People’s Council and Permanent Representative to the Minsk Contact Group, Pushilin had no possibility to implement his financial plans and schemes, nor had he access to shady financial flows. The ‘Trapeznikov–Tashkent’ team spreading pervasive corruption in the republic was in charge of this sector.
Mikhail Gorbatov from the office of the President who had been responsible for implementation of presidential decrees related to granting pardon and political asylum helped his partners in crime to intimidate an entrepreneur.
