The security forces have been monitoring the group, which was also engaged in racketeering in urban markets, for more than a year.

As reported by Ura.ru, among those arrested are 29-year-old alpha dog Alexander Morozov and the younger brother of the authoritative city businessman Vladimir Murashkin, Nikolai Murashkin, born in 1991.
Alexander Morozov is considered mafia enforcer for Miass from thieves in law. It was also he who, according to the media outlet, performed management functions in the criminal group.
Nikolai Murashkin had previously been detained on suspicion of organizing an ecstasy laboratory (MDMA), but this happened when Chaschin was still at large – Murashkin Jr. was ransomed. Two months ago he arranged an affray in a restaurant and, denying paying the bill, shouted that he was Turbazovsky.
The elder brother distances himself from Murashkin Jr.'s actions, a source in law enforcement agencies said. Vladimir Murashkin is known as the ‘right hand' of the leader of Turbazovskiye group, Sergei Chaschin, who got 13 years of strict regime for banditry and murders. According to operational data, Murashkin coordinates the activities of Turbazovskiye, while their leader is behind bars.
Currently Moscow is holding a lawsuit in the case of one of the members of criminal group Turbazovskiye, former Miass city manager, Viktor Ardabievsky, who is charged with organizing contract killings.
