The examination of Yevgeny Yashkin revealed a mental disorder.

Member of the Gagiev’s gang Yevgeny Yashkin, who was an accomplice in 25 murders, was put in a psychiatric hospital for compulsory treatment. The forensic examination revealed a serious mental disorder.

"It is established that after the commission of the crimes a mental disorder has started up that makes the imposition of punishment or its execution impossible. The Moscow City Court ruled that Mr. Yashkin should be subjected to compulsory medical measures in the form of compulsory treatment in a medical psychiatric hospital of a specialized type with intensive supervision," the Investigative Committee reported.

The investigation believes that Yashkin was actively involved in 25 murders committed by Aslan Gagiev's gang. Investigators say that his role "was to participate in armed attacks committed by members of the criminal community."

Recall, the criminal group, created by native of Georgia Aslan Gagiev, has been operating since 2004 and numbered about 50 people. Crimes were committed in the territory of Moscow, the Moscow region and North Ossetia. The investigation suggests that the criminal group killed 60 people. Among the most resonant crimes committed by Gagiev's organized crime group were the murders of Vladikavkaz Mayor Vitaly Karaev and Vice-Premier of North Ossetia Kazbek Pagiev in 2008.
