Spartak fans searched in Moscow, Gladiators leader detained
Police have come to over 30 leaders and ordinary fans of various movements.
Law enforcement agencies have been conducting mass searches in the homes of the fans of Spartak, the Moscow football club. According to the telegram channel Mash, police have come to over 30 leaders and ordinary fans of various movements. The leader of the Gladiators group, Denis Arinushkin, is said to be among the detainees, of which there might be a few.
The searches were provoked by a mass September 22 brawl involving CSKA fans, on Verkhnyaya Maslovka Street. The clash began near a cafe called Izba, where one of the CSKA Kids groups had been celebrating its 20th anniversary. Nine people were taken to the police station.
The State Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region is waiting for changes. The new chief from Moscow - General Plugin - plans to upend the St. Petersburg policemen completely. Interior Minister Kolokoltsev approves this idea.
