Russian Skinheads Sentenced For Attacks After P.E. Concert

A group of skinheads in Russia were handed stiff jail sentences yesterday, after they attacked a group of people and killed a police officer following a Public Enemy concert.

The Moscow City Court sentenced six defendants anywhere from four to 18 years in prison. One was banished to a mental institution.

A brawl broke out in a Moscow subway last summer when the men attacked a group of people returning home from the Public Enemy concert that took place in DK Gorbunova.

Russian newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta reported that the men were not pleased with Public Enemy's ‘black nationalist attitude” and waited for fans of the rap group after the concert shouting "Russia is for Russian's!"

When two officers intervened to stop the ensuing fight, one of the officers was struck on the head with a broken bottle and died a short time later.

A separate group of men were also arrested at another subway station causing havoc, breaking glass and attacking people passing by.
