Top anti-racism judge shot dead in Moscow
April 13, 2010
One of Russia’s top criminal judges has been murdered in the capital, Moscow.
Eduard Chuvashov had presided over several high-profile trials, including the sentencing of some of Russia’s most notorious neo-Nazis.
According to one of Russia’s main news agencies, a security camera recorded the moment the gunman entered the apartment building and opened fire.
The judge had just come out of his apartment.
Mr Chuvashov is reported to have died instantly after being hit in the head and chest.
The gunman, who managed to escape, is reported to have been in his 20s and of Slavic appearance.
Officials have been quoted as saying this was probably a contract killing connected to the judge’s work.
Local media said Mr Chuvashov was the judge who sentenced 12 ultra-nationalists from the Russian fascist group known as the “White Wolves” in February.
Mostly teenagers, the group were found guilty of a string of brutal murders against dark-skinned migrants from Central Asian countries, many of whom had been bludgeoned to death.

The trash I fight against and in relation to which I’m no better are in trouble in Russia. (But who gives a shit about Russia? Faggots like me I guess.) Anyway, “A court in Moscow has sentenced nine members of a neo-Nazi skinhead gang to prison terms of up to 23 years” (Neo-Nazi skinheads jailed in Russia for racist killings, Artyom Liss, BBC News, February 25, 2010). In other news, the murders of lawyer Stanislav Markelov and journalist Anastasia Baburova in January 2009 have been declared to be ‘political’: “Last November, Nikolai Tikhonov, 29, and Yevgenia Khasis, 24, members of a radical neo-Nazi nationalist group, were charged with a “murder committed by previous concert by a group of individuals”. The case made headlines all over the world and once again highlighted the dangers faced by journalists and human rights activists in Russia, which has one of the poorest journalist safety records in the world.”
