Racial killing, assault and criminal activity is alive and well in Moscow and other areas of Russia. Moscow police have arrested five racist skinheads for a killing and other attacks on minorities, an official said Wednesday.

Vladimir Markin, spokesman for the Investigation Committee, told ITAR-Tass three adults and two minors were detained.

He said the ringleader was Denis Kuznetsov, 20, who recruited four friends, including a 17-year-old medical student and a schoolboy.

"Kuznetsov arranged meetings with the young people at which he urged them to consolidate in combat units to commit violence on any non-Slav," Markin said.

Investigators said the group committed one murder in the Maryina Roshcha neighborhood, five assaults and one robbery from April through July of last year.
