A Siberian policeman, convicted of beating a detainee until he lost consciousness, died in the war in Ukraine

The former head of the police department of the city of Sosnovoborsk, Krasnoyarsk Territory, Vyacheslav Zverev, died in the war, the city group “Overheard” reported. He was convicted of beating a detainee and was probably recruited in the colony, Mediazona noted.

In the obituary post in Overheard, 39-year-old Zverev is not directly called a policeman.

At the same time, the city publication mentioned his place of birth in the news about his appointment as chief of police in May 2019. A month before this, Zverev went to the initiation of children into the Youth Army units. Footage from the events shows a man who is very similar to Zverev, judging by the photo from the obituary.

In May 2022, Zverev, along with a police trainee, was convicted of beating a detainee (clause “a” of part 3 of the article 286 of the Criminal Code).

According to the investigation, cited by the Kras Mash telegram channel, in June 2019, Zverev had an argument in a bar with one of the visitors who touched his shoulder, and called the police there. According to the published court ruling, the security forces pulled out Zverev’s opponent and, “in a semi-conscious state,” took him and his friend to the department, where Zverev himself began beating them.

“Zverev came in, approached [the opponent from the bar] and asked: “Well, who has broad shoulders?”, after which Zverev threw one blow with his hand in the area of ​​​​his head and then struck [him] with his hand in the area of ​​​​the head less than three blows,” the court materials cite the circumstances of the case.

“[The victim] fell and Zverev began kicking him. The blows caused [the man’s] nose to bleed and his lips to be broken. [The victim’s friend] saw only one kick, after which [trainee Alexander] Dvorsky began to beat [himself], who stood over him and began punching him in the head area, from top to bottom, and struck at least 10 punches and kicks.” , the document says.

After the beating, both men were taken outside and photographed with empty beer bottles. An employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs drew up protocols against them for drinking alcohol in public (Article 20.20 of the Administrative Code).

The bar's opponent Zverev had bruises on his face and arm and a knocked-out tooth crown. He told the court that he lost consciousness during the beating and does not remember well the events of that night.

Vyacheslav Zverev and intern Dvorsky were initially given four years of probation. In February 2023, on appeal, both of them had their sentence commuted to four years of actual imprisonment in a general regime colony.
