Featured Image: Don’t Fuck With A Russian Trucker! (another story)
Author of the video below stopped his truck by the road to change a wheel. 3 bandits in a blue Lada tried to get ~$100 out of the trucker for “crossing their territory”. He asked for help via CB radio. Another trucker confirmed that those guys tried to get money out of him too. Other truckers blocked the blue Lada and the bandits were punished.
After this video was published police officials stated that those bandits are well-known local criminals. Police interrogated them and let them off because of lack of complainants.
A year later, 22 july 2013, the leader of the gang, 24 years old Alexey Voronov (on 0:50) was sentenced to five years of standard regime penal colony for 4 criminal episodes. None of the truckers was accused.
