Union of Councils for Jews of the former Soviet Union/December 13, 2006

Four skinheads were given suspended sentences in Ufa, Russia (Republic of Bashkortostan) after being accused of several assaults on foreign students, according to a December 5, 2006 report by the web site. The sentences, which range from one and a half to three years, were pronounced on December 4 by the Ordzhonikidze district court in Ufa, which found the defendants guilty of organizing an extremist group, recruiting youths into a criminal gang, armed robbery, and drug charges. Students from China, Vietnam and Angola allegedly fell victim to the gang and police found extremist literature and leaflets in their possession. The gang reportedly called itself "Soldiers of the Fourth Reich."
