Alexander Malofeyev, a member of the UNA-UNSO ultranationalist organization, has been sentenced to 24,5 years in a maximum security penitentiary facility by the Shatoysk District Court of Chechnya. He is also to pay RUB 41 million in damages to the families of the persons he murdered.
Malofeyev's prison sentence includes the 23 years he was to serve but never did for murdering two women during an armed assault in the city of Novosibirsk (Russia) in 2009.
Being a member of the UNA-UNSO, Alexander Malofeyev joined the Viking detachment commanded by the now deceased Alexander Myzyuchko in 1994.
During street fights in Grozny in January 1995, members of the detachment shot down 30 Russian soldiers and gravely wounded at least 15. Malofeyev, who was a sniper at the time, admitted to having killed 5 Russian soldiers singlehandedly.
The investigating officers also believe that Malofeyev fought in Chechnya alongside Dmitry Yarosh, Oleg Tyagnybok and Arseny Yatsenyuk, current Prime Minister of Ukraine.
