FC KAMAZ congratulates Eduard Yugrin, footballer and 29 complex gang member, upon anniversary
Yugrin, who turned 50, was disqualified for beating a judge in 2001. At the same time, he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for participating in the gang.
The Naberezhnye Chelny KAMAZ football club website congratulates chairman of the team veterans Eduard Yugrin, who was convicted of participation in the 29 complex gang in 2001, on the 50th anniversary.
The team and fans of the club wished him "good health, success, happiness and long life."
Yugrin played 180 matches for the club. He completed his professional career in 1998 but continued to play for amateur teams. In 2001, at a game against Bars, he beat the judge, for which he was suspended for life.
At the same time, he was sentenced to 13 years' imprisonment in the case of the 29 complex gang. Yugrin was released in 2014, after which he returned to FC KAMAZ as chairman of the club's veterans.
The 29 complex gang, named in honor of the micro district in Naberezhnye Chelny, appeared in the USSR. Members of the group controlled most of the enterprises in the city and beyond. By the end of the 1990s, the tribute reached one billion rubles a year. The gang was liquidated in 2004. The investigation established that members of the organized crime group committed at least 21 murders. 33 most active participants of the band were sentenced to terms of 6 to 25 years' imprisonment.
