Hitman responsible for 9 murders gets married in jail, photo
Oleg Mikhailov had started a long-distance relationship with his future wife in April this year.
The wedding of the professional hitman of the Orekhovo-Medvedkovskaya gang, Oleg Mikhailov (Khokhol), and his pen-friend Viktoria took place the other day in the Vologda prison for those convicted for life.
A picture of the humble ceremony has been made public. The Cherepovets information portal said that Viktoria had written her first letter to her future husband involved in 11 murders in April of this year, and he proposed on their first month of dating.
The CrimeRussia wrote before that the newlyweds had been allowed a three-day meeting in a special room. They are forbidden to leave it and besides, they will be disturbed by the warders every three hours. The murderer will have to wait a whole year before the next meeting with his wife.
Mikhailov was the only Orekhovo-Medvedkovskaya member to have confessed to the murders; in 2003, he turned himself in. He admitted that he had expected a softer sentence that a life imprisonment.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
