“I’m filled with indignation.” Grandmother of child murdered by Tsapki comments on Tsepovyaz and crabs scandal
In the woman’s words, now, there’s only one thing relatives of those murdered by the bandits pursue - they want the Federal Penal Correction Service to show them incarceration conditions of other gang’s members.
Citizen of a stanitsa of Kushchevskaya Viktoria Kostyuk who lost her daughter Elena and 9-month-old granddaughter Amira in November, 2010 (they were murdered by Tsapki gang members) has commented on a scandal surrounding a photo of Viacheslav Tsepovyaz eating crab meat and caviar while serving his time in the colony in Amur region.
“I’m filled with indignation. Once again, I can see that if one has money, there’s nothing to prevent you from luxuriating in your riches - no matter if it’s in a prison. This is ridiculous watching the convicted Viacheslav Tsepovyaz and his lawyer trying to prove all these pictures were edited and faked.” Kostyuk stated in an interview with MK.
She is convinced of the fact that the only reason why the media learnt about the murderer’s lavish lifestyle in the prison is because Tsepovyaz’s ex-wife Natalia didn’t want to be left with nothing after divorce. With that, Viktoria believes that Natalia had posted the pictures on the web not because the latter’s consciousness gnawed her because of the ex-husband’s crimes, but in order to “solve her money issue.”
Thus, at the present time, the former spouses are trying to share the so called Tsapki empire - Slava Kubani, one of the largest enterprise in Kushchevskaya - between each other.
Viktoria Kostyuk added that there’s only one thing relatives of those murdered by the bandits pursue - they want the Federal Penal Correction Service to show them incarceration conditions of other gang’s members. Viktoria is convinced of the fact that Vova-Bespredel (Alekseev) is serving his time in prison in the same luxurious conditions.
“His father is also a pretty good entrepreneur, opens shops in the stanitsa again and again. They are called Alekseevskie. Wherever I go, I encounter their shops in every corner.” The woman says.
She also told about Nadejda Tsapok who had come back to the stanitsa from a prison in a town of Ust-Labinsk. In Kostyuk’s words, the mother of the gang’s leader is now trying to open a baker shop.
“We, frankly, thought she would go to some other place - at the ends of the earth - where no one knows her, and offer prayers to God for forgiveness of her and her sons’ sins. Famous last words! She came back home and walks around the stanitsa just as if nothing had happened.” Viktoria told.
The scandal surrounding Viacheslav Tsepovyaz’s incarceration conditions combusted after his ex-wife Natalia had posted the pictures he’d sent her from the colony on the web. The pictures show Tsepovyaz enjoying his meals of crab meat and caviar. The Federal Penal Correction Service promised to carry out a check into the incident. Tsepovyaz stated that the pictures had been faked and posted to set him up. At the present time, the convicted of multiple murders is placed in a punitive confinement. The day before, it became known that the Investigative Committee had opened a criminal case of exceeding official powers (item 1 of article 286 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
