Investigators of Russia opened a criminal case against a well-known Ukrainian nationalist Alexandr Muzychko (Sasha Beliy) in connection with gangsterism and creation of the organized criminal group. He is accused of mass murders of the Russian military men in Chechnya in 1994-2000.
"Muzychko brutally tortured captive military men of Russia, and murdered them afterwards. Muzychko personally tortured, and then murdered at least 20 captive soldiers of troops of federal forces during the indicated period, demanding the necessary information," RIA Novosti quotes an official representative of the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin.
The Russian Investigative Committee believes that during tortures he broke Russian officers their fingers, put out their eyes with various objects, pulled out their nails and teeth with pliers, cut throats of some of them with a knife, and shoot some of them. "Thereby, by his actions he demonstrated other people his hatred to Russian soldiers," Markin says.
The data obtained in the course of the investigation of collision of fighters under the leadership Shamil Basayev and Khattab with paratroopers from Pskov in the area of the Chechen village Ulus-Kert in 2000 became basis for opening of the criminal case.
Markin added that one more participant of the organized criminal group was questioned, he informed about other crimes, committed by Muzychko and members of the nationalist organization called Ukrainian National Assembly - The Ukrainian People's Self Defense (UNA-UNSO), towards Russian soldiers in Chechnya in 1994-2000.
"In the course of identification on photos he identified Muzychko as a person, who, together with him participated in actions on the territory of the Republic of Chechnya on the side of fighters," Markin said.
"On March 7, 2014 the resolution regarding arraignment of Muzychko was made, and he was put on the international wanted list, application regarding choosing the measure of restraint in his regard was sent to Essentukskiy City Court of Stavropol region. The investigation of the criminal case continues," Markin summed up.
