Uralmash crime bosses' stones demolished at Yekaterinburg cemetery
Who is behind this has not been established yet.
Stones on the graves of the first leader of Uralmash gang, Grigory Tsyganov, Sergey Ivannikov killed in 1993, and Alexander Khabarov, who died in 2005, were demolished in the Northern Cemetery of Yekaterinburg. According to Ura.ru, a new concrete pad was made at the burial site of the crime bosses.
“They resolved to reconstruction because for 20 years the stone has decayed, the tile has peeled off, the bronze has also started to look tired,” said an unnamed interviewee. Moreover, according to him, the previously installed bronze busts of the gang leaders had little resemblance to the buried people.
This is how the monument to the Uralmash ex-leaders looked until recently
New monuments and busts, as well as tiles, fences, tables and a bench will appear in mid-June. Who finances the renovation has not yet been established.
