YEKATERINBURG, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - Police in the Sverdlovsk region detained three persons suspected of involvement in the fight between migrants and Siberia residents overnight to Tuesday, in which a man was killed.
Criminal proceedings had been opened over murder.
On Tuesday, Sverdlovsk region police chief Mikhail Borodin said at a conference held at the governor's office that three natives of Tajikistan had been detained. "Police are questioning them," Borodin said.
According to preliminary information, a group of builders from Siberia was walking out of a cafe when it encountered a group of Central Asia natives, numbering 12 to 14. A conflict broke out between them which quickly escalated to a fight in which the victim was fatally stabbed in the check, earlier reports said.
The migrants drove away in three VAZ cars.
Borodin ordered his deputy Colonel Vladimir Romanyuk and criminal police to go to Aramil to investigate the murder. The regional police officials will look into actions by their colleagues in the Aramil district where the migrants had lived illegally.
The local authorities plan operations across the whole Sverdlovsk region to decriminalize the places where foreigners are staying. Migrants will be brought to police stations and checked for involvement in earlier crimes.
