MOSCOW, January 30 (Itar-Tass) - Seven members of the Kupavinskaya gang have been charged with a series of attacks on money collectors and thefts of multi-million rouble sums, Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The gangsters were charged with murders, illegal turnover of weapons and other offenses, the spokesman said.
"Investigators have accused Kupavinskaya gangsters Sergei Aksyonov, Yuri Kapinosov, Ivan Mikhailov, Sergei Muravlyov, Pavel Sorokin, Sergei Monogov and Alexander Patkin under Articles 209 /banditry/, Article 105, Part 2 /murder/, Article 162, Part 4 /robbery/ and Article 222, Part 3 /illegal turnover of weapons/.
In December 2009, the gang attacked personnel of the GBB private security firm, killing three guards and stealing more than 74 million roubles.
In August 2010, the accused attacked Torgsbyt company personnel, wounding one and killing another. The gang stole 470,000 roubles during the raid. The gangsters also robbed Muscovites and Moscow region residents. In August 2012, they beat up two Muscovites and stole from them 13 million roubles.
"The investigation is over; the defendants will begin to read the case materials shortly," the SK spokesman said.
