Skinhead Aleksey Voevodin sentenced to life imprisonment killed his cellmate
In 2014, the court added 6 years for another murder to Voevodin's life sentence.
Neo-Nazi from St. Petersburg Aleksey Voevodin, who is currently serving a life sentence in a penal colony No. 18 (Polyarnaya Sova) in the Kharp village of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region, killed a cellmate.
According to media reports, the murder occurred during a brawl in a cell for persons sentenced to life imprisonment.
The man convicted in the high-profile case of Voevodin-Borovikov’s Militant Terrorist Organization (BTO), who committed 13 grave crimes motivated by extremism, had brutally beaten his cellmate, who later died from his injuries.
According to Argumenty i fakty, the incident took place on September 13, 2016.
It is worth noting that Voevodin's life term, to which he had been sentenced in 2011, was extended by 6 more years in maximum security prison for another murder three years later.
In Russia, criminals sentenced to life imprisonment have a chance to be released on parole after 25 years of serving the sentence, provided they do not commit other grave crimes while in custody. Aleksey Voevodin has been deprived of such a possibility.
