    Our banner Alexey Pichugin case

    Peshkun Alexey Vasilievich | 22 Jan 2007

    Former employee of the financial-construction company «Algorithm», established by a Tambov businessman Sergey Gorin.

    Within the limits of the case about the attempts at Olga Kostina and Victor Kolesov Alexey Peshkun was submitted as Alexey Pichugins partner in crime. According to the General Prosecutors Office, Pichugin suggested that Gorin should find people for executing the «order» for attempts at Victor Kolesov and Olga Kostina. Gorin passed this «order» to Peshkun, and he, in his turn, turned this task over to the Korovnikovs gang.

    It was impossible to interrogate Gorin himself, as the Gorins, Sergey and Olga, had disappeared, and Alexey Pichugin was found guilty of the organization of their assassination.

    Appearing before the court, Alexey Peshkun partially pleaded guilty. Meanwhile, his lawyer Alexander Shishin stated about possible self-incrimination from the direction of his client.

    On the 30 of March 2005 Alexey Peshkun was condemned to 4,5 years with service of the sentence in the colony of strict regime.

    On 15 of May 2007, at the court session of the Moscow City Court within the bounds of the third Alexey Pichugins trial, where Alexey Peshkun was witnessed, it became known that he is released on parole.
