In 2006 Pronin and Sankin were taken to work for the first time - in the form of MIA officers the bandits kidnapped four people in the suburban village Bolshevo and took them to the 41-th km of highway from Moscow to Riga. Then Gagiev’s killer shot all four and his assistant Beglaryan doused corpses with gasoline and burned.

Stolen entrepreneurs were strangled by Nikolayev and Beglaryan, who dismembered corpses and scattered body parts around the neighborhood.
On this operation Sankin came together with another member of the gang – the Colonel Yashkin, whose case is severed in a separate proceeding. While participating in the fighting in the Caucasus the Colonel Yashkin was strongly contused; as the driver he was involved in about 20 murders committed by Gagiev’s gang. According to the conclusion of the examination, now the defendant is mentally inadequate.
The case of former officers Andrey Sankin and Viktor Pronin, previously awarded by orders and medals for counter-terrorism operations, will be considered after the completion of the Yashkin’s trial.
