Treasurer of Tsapok's gang is at large?
An unexpected turn in the bloody gang's case.
Residents of the Kushchevsky district, where the massacre was committed in 2010, believe that one member of the Tsapok's gang is still at large. They are sure that large landowner of the Krasnodar Territory Fedor Streltsov managed the financial flows of the organized crime group, he was a gang's treasurer.
He received a letter of late leader of the gang Sergey Tsapok. The authenticity of the letter was confirmed by Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz, who is serving a 20-year sentence for crimes committed as part of the Kushchevskaya gang.
The letter said that Streltsov was an active participant in the Tsapok's criminal group, but was able to escape punishment and even inherited a number of gang enterprises, which had dozens of land shares and thousands of hectares of farmland.
According to another source, farmers of the Kuschevsky district of Krasnodar wrote an appeal to the Prosecutor's Office. The appeal says that they suspect Streltsov of organizing raider seizures of their lands. According to local residents, Streltsov was a financier of the Tsapok's gang, which massacred in the village of Kuschevskaya in November 2010, but he did not participate in murders and could escape punishment. All major assets of the gang - Sever Kubani LLC, Arteks Agro LLC, Yug-Agrotechnika LLC, Agro-Poltavchenskoye LLC, were registered with him.
Now the investigation of the Kushchevskaya's case may resume due to the letter found. In the letter Tsapok threatens Streltsov and recalls his "sins for which he will be punished." But Tsapok failed to keep this promise, because he died in a Krasnodar detention center in July 2014.
Recall, the Tsapok's gang was arrested for brutal murder, no one review assets of the organized crime group. This is why Fedor Streltsov was able to escape punishment. According to available information, Svetlana Martynova, former judge of the Kushchevsky District Court and the Arbitration Court of the Rostov region, made the necessary decisions in his favor and is under arrest now, RBC writes.
Local residents tell RBC that their lands were seized by unknown people, they could not sow and cultivate, so they had to build barricades and hire lawyers and Cossacks for the last money. Residents of the village also say that they had never seen Streltsov.
Now an important proof that Streltsov took part in the affairs of the Tsapok's gang is a letter, on the basis of which it is possible to resume the investigation of the Kushchevskaya's case. According to the affected farmers, the corruption links of the Tsapok's gang are still ongoing. Villagers claim that with the help of judicial decisions, Streltsov is engaged in taking over of their lands. Farmers are preparing to protect their land this spring.
Murder of 12 people (including four children) occurred on November 4, 2010 in the village of Kuschevskaya, Krasnodar Territory. It was committed by members of the Tsapok's gang - Sergey Tsapok (leader of the organized crime group), Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz, Andrey Bykov, Vyacheslav Ryabtsev, Sergey Tsepovyaz, Igor Chernykh, Vladimir Zaporozhets, Alexey Gurov, Evgeny Gurov, Vyacheslav Skachedub, Vladimir Alekseev, Vitaly Ivanov, Sergey Karpenko and Igor Maidanyuk. The reason for the reprisal was the local farmer (he was among the dead) who allegedly hindered Tsapok to ‘run business'.
The corridors of the Main MIA Directorate for St. Petersburg and Leningrad region are empty. Employees of the department have no free time - they are busy with reports. Inspectors of the Main Directorate of Internal Security of the MIA arrived in the northern capital with a check. CrimeRussia tried to find out whether there will be any resignations.
