Big catch. Former son-in-law of Minister and former Duma deputy among Klyuchevskie gangsters
Both were prominent Trans-Baikal United Russia members.
Vechorka has obtained some juicy details of the special operation in Transbaikalia aimed to detain the rest of the members of Klyuchevskie gang. It turned out that among the four detainees were the former son-in-law of a minister, Alexei Guskov (aka Gus, the Russian for “Goose”), and ex-deputy of the regional Duma Dmitry Nepomnyashchy (aka Dyoma).
Alexei Guskov (Gus) is a former son-in-law of Culture Minister Galina Syrovatka. His ex-wife Maria Guskova also served as minister for a while. Guskov had already been arrested in mid-2000s being the acting deputy of the Chita City Duma and even served his jail time for robbery in an organized criminal group and illegal acquisition and possession of weapons.
Dmitry Nepomnyashchy used to be a deputy of the Chita regional Duma and is one of the founders of Trans-Baikal Youth Parliament.
"Both were prominent Trans-Baikal United Russia party members, making their contributions to the development of the regional branch of the ruling party. They needed money for this. So our 'heroes' were engaged in robberies on a federal highway: they threatened bus drivers transporting Camel cigarettes and extorted their money, which got Guskov into jail", Vechorka wrote citing its sources.
All of the four Klyuchevskie gangsters got murder charges. There are no details on the case yet.
