MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) — A panel of jurors has passed a guilty verdict for six skinheads for hate attacks and murders, the press service of the Moscow City Court told Itar-Tass.
The defendants in the prisoner's dock are Dmitry Sudakov, Alexander Kichutkin, Vladimir Belyakov, Alexei Kiselyov, Vladimir Stepanov, Yemelyan Nikolayev and Stepan Kuzmin. Kuzmin was unanimously cleared of the charges. The jury said the guilt of other defendants had been fully proven.
According to the case materials, Belyakov, Stepanov, Kiselyov and Kichutkin were underage as of the moment of crimes. Kichutkin already had a conviction at the time.
In October 2009, Nikolayev, Sudakov, Belyakov and Kichutkin, armed with knives, were walking along Vvedensky Street, looking for targets to attack among persons of non-Slav appearance. An Armenian citizen became their victim. He died of massive blood loss.
"Feeling ethnic hate and strife toward the man, and seeking to lynch him, Nikolayev, Sudakov, Belyakov and Kichutkin attacked the victim, stabbing, kicking and punching him repeatedly," the investigators said.
They stabbed the man at least 11 times and robbed him.
In March 2010, they committed a similar crime against a native of Asia on a train between the Veshnyaki and Plyushchevo stations in Moscow. One of the skinheads sprayed Mace in his face, and then his accomplices beat up the man and stabbed him. The man died.
Another attack occurred in Akademik Artsimovich Street in April 2010. This time, a wounded foreigner managed to escape.
The court will announce the verdict on October 30.
