Corrupcia.net [1], bb-mos [2]podkradyha [3], and harfang83 [4] share pictures of the soccer fans blocking Leningradskiy prospekt, one of the major Moscow streets, to protest against the murder of their colleague Yegor Sviridov. Killers of Sviridov were released soon after the murder. Most of those who participated in the street action are afraid the criminals will escape the punishment, the same way it happened with Yuri Volkov, another soccer fan killed this summer [5].
