MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The Savelovsky District Court of Moscow has sentenced to nine years of imprisonment Anton Mukhachev, leader of the Northern Brotherhood extremist group. He was found guilty of organising an extremist group and of swindling.
It was established that in 2006 Mukhachev and two other persons created Northern Brotherhood for committing extremist crimes. The purpose of the group was “to seize power in Russia by non-constitutional ways, with the help of a so-called ‘velvet’ revolution.” The investigators established that after that the group planned to change the constitutional system in the country and to create a state named ‘Fair Russia.’ With this in view the organisers of Northern Brotherhood drafted a programme, which included crimes of extremist nature.
“Mukhachev created a site of Northern Brotherhood, on which he published articles based on the ideology of the criminal group, as well as other extremist materials,” said a representative of the Prosecutor-General’s Office. In 2007 he and other ringleaders of the crime group decided to create an Internet project entitled “Big game. Break the system.” According to the rules worked out by them, participants in the game fulfilled the tasks, which included illegal extremist actions.
A number of crimes were committed in various Russian regions as a result of the activities of Mukhachev and other leaders of Northern Brotherhood, including extremist attacks, the violation of people’s rights, the deliberate damage of people’s property and deliberately false reports about acts of terrorism.
The court ruling was pronounced behind closed doors.
