Upon request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, the Republic of Bulgaria extradited Russian national Vladislav Mukhin and Estonian national Andrey Danilov (Edwin Reinsalu).

Mr. Mukhin is accused of perpetration of crimes, envisaged by Article 209 part 2 (banditry) and Article 105 part 2 paragraphs “a, g, h” (murder) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

According to the investigation, in 1997-2001, on the territory of Kazan, Mr. Mukhin, together with other members of the Fedya’s Brigada armed group (gang), in order to raise their criminal authority, committed a number of especially grave crimes.

Thus, in October 16, 1998, for the purposes of division of spheres of criminal influence, Mr. Mukhin and other members of the gang killed leader of another criminal group Kaluga, Vyacheslav Tatarov.

In December 3, 1998, Mr. Mukhin, again for the purposes of division of spheres of criminal influence, using firearm, killed member of a criminal group Kamaevskie, Marat Iskhakov.

Since the accused escaped from the law enforcement bodies, a measure of restriction in the form of detention was selected against him, and under instruction of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, he was declared internationally wanted.

A request for his extradition was sent by the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation due to his detention in August 28, 2020 on the territory of Bulgaria.

Moreover, national of Estonia, Andrey Danilov, was detained on the same territory in July 9, 2020.

In February 22, 2012 the Volgograd Regional Court, in the presence of jury, found him guilty in absentia of perpetration of crimes, stipulated by Article 105 part 2 paragraphs “b, j” (murder), Article 30 part 3, Article 105 part 2 paragraphs “b, h, j” (attempted murder), Article 222 part 1 (illegal turnover of firearms) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and sentenced him to 19 years of imprisonment with serving the sentence in a correctional colony of strict regime.

He got this sentence for murdering of a security agency guard and attempted murder of a businesswoman. Having found out that his friend Sergey Sazonov, which had business relations with the victim (building of multi-stored parking lots), owned her money in amount of 1.5 million rubles, Mr. Danilov offered to kill her.

In October 18, 2005, he shot her and security agency guards, who came after her call, a few times with the TT pistol. As a result, one of the security guards died, the woman and another guard were heavily wounded.

Mr. Danilov escaped from the law enforcement bodies, a measure of restriction in the form of detention was selected against him and, under instruction of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation, he was declared internationally wanted.

Owing to coordinated activities of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation and organized close cooperation with the competent authorities of the Republic of Bulgaria, positive decisions on their extradition were taken.

Vladislav Mukhin and Andrey Danilov were escorted to Moscow by the special convoy officers.
