A criminal case of Creation of a Criminal Community (part 3 of Art. 210 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated against Deputy Head of the MIA Criminal Investigation Department in the Stavropol region, Colonel Sergey Rubezhnoy. This is reported by the regional ICR's press service.

According to the case file, in 2015, the OCC created by Rubezhnoy established a brothel. The criminal investigation department deputy head received 1 million rubles ($15,100) a month with its help.

This week, the judicial debates in the trial of Vladimir Barsukov-Kumarin charged with creation of Tambovskie organized criminal group have been finished in the Kuibyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg. If the court upholds the stance of the state prosecution, the once-influential criminal ‘authority’ may be convicted to almost 25 years behind bars. In reality, this translates into a life term for the legend of criminal St. Petersburg.
