The Rostov court sent to the colony four members of an organized group accused of kidnapping. This was reported by the press service of the Prosecutor’s Office of the Rostov region.
Ivan Yurchenko, Andrei Lukyanov, Nikolai Matvienko and Andrei Bykov were found guilty of kidnapping and the use of slave labor.
The court found that men from June 2018 to August 2019 were looking for homeless people on the streets of Rostov or just people without means of subsistence. They were promised a job, and then taken to a private house in Bataysk, turning into slaves. There are 20 victims in the case. Some were abducted and threatened with weapons, forced to work, others lured by deception.
