Leader of Orekhovskaya organized crime group Pylev, who serves lifetime sentence, admits committing murder in Spain
According to Oleg Pylev, in 1997-1998 he killed a certain Alexander Finner in Spain.
Leader of the Medvedkovskaya and Orekhovskaya gangs Oleg Pylev admitted to killing a man in Spain in 1997-1998, Baza reports. Pylev made the confession after investigators established the involvement of his comrade-in-arms Alexander Sharapov in the murder of a member of the Orekhovskaya gang Alexey Pirogov in the spring of 1998.
According to the investigators, in 1998, Pirogov knocked down and killed two girls, while driving his car in a state of drug intoxication. His “colleagues,” including Pylev and Sharapov, decided to punish him for what happened and killed him.
It is noted that Pirogov was killed not only as a punishment for the death of the children, but also as a precaution. The criminals feared that he would reveal the gang’s secrets in prison.
After the investigators proved Sharapov’s involvement in the murder of Pirogov, Pylev confessed to the murder in Spain. He stated that in 1997-1998 he killed a man named Alexander Finner. He did not give the exact date of the murder, as he allegedly did not remember it.
In September 2007, Oleg Pylev was sentenced to life imprisonment, having been convicted of creating an organized criminal group, as well as banditry and participating in 11 murders. Along with him, nine more people were convicted.
The gang of at least a hundred members and armed with pistols and machine guns was created to commit particularly grave crimes and was engaged in the redistribution of spheres of criminal influence.
