Still: here I began to listen to the merits of the case about one of the most high-profile gang warfare in recent years — the shooting near the cafe Elements on Rochdelskaya street in December 2015.

Near the door, where was about to begin a meeting, standing strong men in leather jackets. One of them reacted aggressively to photographers. Between them skirmish ensued. After this, the same citizen was telling the press: “Please do not take places, there are a lot of relatives!” he shouted. The rest supported him. Presented by brother Surzhikova, the man expressed dissatisfaction with the media publications about his relative: “You write the truth!”
