Neo-Nazi Maxim Martsinkevich (Tesak) wrote nine confessions before his death, in which he testified against his comrades-in-arms. About it informs Kommersant.
As the lawyer Alexander Timoshenko, who is defending one of Tesak’s associates Alexey Gudilin, told the publication, in February 2020, Martsinkevich unexpectedly confessed to the murder of 2007.
Two more high-profile crimes in 2003 were discovered thanks to other confessions. In one case in Moscow, nationalists cut off the heads of two migrants, after which they spread messages in the media demanding to close the borders with the Central Asian republics. Another double murder was committed near Smolensk.
According to the newspaper, the Main Investigation Department of the Investigative Committee has completed the investigation of a criminal case against a whole brigade of Tesak’s associates, who are accused of a series of murders motivated by ethnic hatred. A dozen people are involved in the criminal case, including Andrey Kail, Alexander Lysenkov, Maxim Khotulev, Pavel Khrulevin, Alexey Gudilin and Semyon Tokmakov, who were detained and then arrested by the Basmanny Court of Moscow in December 2020.
Several nationalists were transported to Moscow from the colonies where they were held for other crimes. One of the defendants in the case of Sergei Korotkikh (Malyuta) was arrested by the Basmanny Court in absentia for an international search.
All of them are accused of committing by an organized group of murders of two or more persons motivated by national hatred and enmity (clauses “a”, “g”, “l”, part 2 of article 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
