MOSCOW , May 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow City Court begins on May 16 to consider on the merits the cases of two Muscovites, members of an extremist group, accused of attacks and murder out of ethnic hate.
It will be an open trial, a source in the court’s press service told Itar-Tass. The panel of jury was formed on Monday. “The sides selected twelve main jurors and two extras,” said the source.
According to investigators, Georgy Golovanov who is underage and his acquaintance Yevgeny Marenchuk in April-May 2010 committed out of ethnic hate a number of cruel grave crimes against citizens of Central Asian countries and people from the Caucasus. Thus, on April 27 the youths, having arms, attacked an Armenian citizen in the Maryina Roshcha district of Moscow. Golovanov stabbed the man, killing him, and then the youths took his mobile telephone and fled.
“On May 12, near the Moscow –Stankolit railway platform, they attacked citizens of Tajikistan and Mongolia. The Tajik was stabbed in the abdomen and the Mongolian citizen in the chest,” sources in the investigation department said.
In the same area on May 5, the youths stabbed an Uzbek citizen who died of knife wounds. On May 8 the defendants wounded a man from Kyrgyzstan in Streletskaya street.
The defendants fully confessed to their crimes, except for the murder of the Armenian citizen, as each of them tries to shift the blame on the other.
