Egor Sviridov

28 years old Spartak Moscow fan Egor Sviridov has been killed on 6th of December in Moscow. He has been shot in a fight with 8 members of ethnic gang of Muslims from Caucasus (Dagestanis and Chechens). He and other 4 lads stood in Kronshtadsky parkway waiting for taxi.

A group of Caucasian youth passed and started to insult Russians, as fight has begun they used firearms. Egor has been killed. Murderers are arrested but it seems that due to pressure from muslim diasporas and police corruption nothing serious will happen to them.

On December 7th, Russian football fans blocked Leningradskoye highway one of the major thruways of Russia’s capital.

6 people were released out of 5

Suspects released Aslan Cherkessov, 26, a resident of the Kabardino-Balkaria region, was formally accused by a Moscow district court of murdering Mr Sviridov and placed in custody until 6 February.

On 7th December, fans from the Fratria movement, made up of Spartak Moscow FC supporters, gathered in central Moscow for an unsanctioned rally at leningrad highway (on of the biggest highways in Moscow). Supporters of other clubs joined them and called for the authorities to conduct a quick and thorough investigation, to find and punish the killers. The Fratria group wrote an open letter to the head of the Russian Investigative Committee asking the official to take the case under his personal control.

The rally organizers and police said about 1.000-2.500 people attended the demonstration. They were screaming “Russia for Russians”. Riot police were almost immediately dispatched to the site. The officers did not detain any of the fans. They persuaded them not to obstruct traffic and to disperse.
