Notorious in Mariupol people, the leader of the organization “Union of Slavs of Russia” Igor Korobov is in jail. He is suspected of committing several serious crimes.
Igor Korobov is the leader and founder of the Slavophile organization “Union of Slavs of Russia” (SSR), which was engaged in the organization of different actions, directly or indirectly, expressing sympathy for Russia and having anti-Semitic. The organization was quite aggressive and was aimed at destabilizing the situation in the region and the city.
Now Igor Korobov arrested. How did you find 0629, 2nd Chief of the SBU in the Donetsk and Luhansk region, he was arrested and sent to jail.
We tried to figure out what incriminate Igor Korobov Russian citizen and most importantly – why.
About Korobova known that he was born in 1968 in Rostov-on-don, but most of his life lived in Mariupol. Since 2011 he has held the shares chauvinistic orientation. The members of “Union of Slavs of Russia” is known for having publicly burned the flag of the United States and Israel were leaflets provocative and participated in conferences on the issues of violation of rights of national minorities. Maybe someone remembers how in Mariupol we had some boards with a reminder of the victory of Prince Svyatoslav over the “Jewish Karasia”. It is also the work of the organization Korobov. He published an open letter in 2013 to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. In it, he supported the policy of the Russian Federation on military action in Syria.
“The Union of Slavs of Russia” was made up of 25 Mariupol, only 10 of which were active. All members of the “SSR” was divided into “five”, and leaders had the call letters and secret appearance. To establish branches in other cities, the organization has not reached.
Interesting activities “SSR” and Igor Korobov at the end of 2013. It is known that he was on the Maidan on the side of Pro-Ukrainian protesters, but the truth of his convictions in doubt. He came into the tent “Donetsk” and others and tried to learn lists of all the protesters. Eyewitnesses claim, then some people disappeared.
In Mariupol Boxes set up their associates on the worsening socio-political situation and said that we need to change the constitutional order and territorial integrity of the state. He looked for instructors who had taught members of the “SSR” fundamentals of sabotage, and the capture of the troops of the Russian Federation the capital of the Azov sea, to work in the occupation of the police. The main purpose was the dissemination of ideas of “Russian world” by entering all the former Soviet republics in the Russian Federation and the oppression of other national groups, especially representatives of the Jewish people. Members of the “SSR” actively distributing the book Korobov “Looking for someone”, which promote ideas of xenophobia. For example, in the book was the statement that Ukrainians are “two-legged beasts”, and the people of Africa it is compared with homeless animals, calling for their physical destruction.
Igor Korobov has never worked. In law enforcement agencies claim that the Boxes had income from the sale of drugs. He allegedly purchased and distributed amphetamine, including among the military personnel of the armed forces. He even managed to serve in the Ukrainian army, in the battalion “Artemovsk” and earn UBD. However, colleagues report that he was listed only in the protection of objects (was on the 3rd line, stood in a cordon near the city). When he was supposed to participate directly in armed clashes with the terrorists, went to the hospital allegedly due to illness.
The battalion Boxes loved to talk about the fact that the Russian army is “the strongest in the world, and to fight it is pointless.” In the same way as on the Maidan, trying to figure out the names of all military personnel. For this he received threats from his colleagues, who was suspected of Korobova enemy. Quickly after leaving, he arrived in Mariupol. People who knew Korobov personally, told 0629 that after service in the battalion he loved to exhibit himself a “war hero”, and tell the commander “artemovska” an ex – con, and all his subordinates “thieves”.
Igor Korobov had a long-standing feud with another famous in Mariupol man, Igor Simonica. The story of their hatred has lasted for 19 years. Men in far 90-e years, had a business that went bankrupt, and the Boxes demanded that a former companion his share. He refused to pay, and after the threats addressed to law enforcement agencies. Mutual dislike lasted for years, and once Korobov beat Simonica, damaging his nose. In 2018, Korobov decided on serious crime. He hired a young member of the organization “Union of Slavs of Russia” Mysnyk M. S., (knowing that he was at war, and now is experiencing financial difficulties), that he was beaten and crippled Igor Simonica. He wanted to make the enemy suffer, so ordered by not just beating, and mutilation. Korobov has been paid to Simonico gouged out his eyes and broke his knees (all these facts were documented in the case file). For this he promised to pay $ 600. But the potential perpetrator did not do it. He contacted police and handed over the Korobov.
To hold Korobov is hot, the police staged a re-enactment. Tomato paste Simonico were applied makeup and made a photo where he was allegedly beaten and bloodied, lying on the snow. Illusory satisfy Korobov, and he paid MINICOM foreign currency. (Photo courtesy of Simonton 0629).
In 2018, the leader of the “SSR” has decided that you need to equip your organization with firearms and to prepare its members for combat operations as saboteurs. With the money earned from the drug trade, he bought 15 guns “PM” and 6 AKM. The weapons were discovered during searches in apartment Korobov. According to the testimony of the leader of the SSR, he planned to take part in the organization of the so-called “Maidan № 3” in Kiev.
Currently Korobov is in jail of the village of Kamensk. He’s facing charges that guarantee him many years of imprisonment “in the zone”. Already passed the first trial, which determined the measure of restraint.
Interesting fact: defender Igor Korobov in court is Valerii Dovzhenko, who is also a member of “Union of Slavs of Russia”. He’s the brother the serial killer-maniac Sergei Dovzhenko, on whose hands the blood of at least 17 victims, including Cakmak and Karimov.
0629 managed to communicate with the injured Igor Simonica. He said he is familiar with Korobov for a long time and knows almost the whole story of his life. According to Simonica, Igor Korobov went on “political gangster” ways, led unfair competition, ignoring how the law and mere morality. Trying to start his business, he took a large sum of money in the 90s, but could not pay and decided to “hang duty to his late father.” Everyone understood that this is a low act.
Simonik claims that Boxes associated with “werewolves in epaulets” and together they engaged in extortion, brutally beaten businessmen, forcing them to write ious.
Simonic met Korobov when he bought the fish, and then asked them to store it in the refrigerator, which he rented. When almost all goods were sold out (the camera was only 1/10 of the product), someone deliberately broke it, and the fish was gone. Boxes demanded money for it from Simonica. Brought it with friends out of town, beat and demanded to write a receipt.
“Korobov said that has been selling children for organs. Don’t know whether it’s true or not, but he threatened also to do with my son if I don’t pay”, – said Igor Simanic. Then he turned to law enforcement, and began a trial. However, the case collapsed. Simonich believes that he intentionally “destroyed”. Simonik convinced that the whole criminal group, which included Boxes, was aimed at obtaining power. “They were in MPs, and for this they needed the money. So they decided to knock them all out and put “on the counter,” he says.
About the political life of Igor Korobov Simonik recalls that initially he was in the Communist party, then joined the socialists, then became an ardent supporter of Yushchenko and even headed in Mariupol, the headquarters of “Our Ukraine”, but managed to embarrass myself here. When it came to the pensioner requests, it kicks kicked them out of my office, and they wrote the statement. For the leadership of the party kicked him out. After the failure of Igor Korobov tried to join the “Fatherland”, but it was not, explaining that like him do not belong there.
According to Simonica, Korobov fought for the extension of the agreements on the basis of the Russian fleet in the Crimea, and also wrote letters to the leaders of the Islamic countries to offer military aid to ostensibly fight the Jews. “How an ordinary person can supply overseas-trained instructors? Followed by clearly there was a Russian secret services” – says Simonic and notes that Boxes wanted to run for MPs, but this was prevented his gangster biography, the low level of political culture and the absence of banal morality.
Pseudo-performer beating of Simonica Maxim Mysnyk now left the region, and to communicate to him the journalists 0629 managed only by phone. He said that the organization “Union of Slavs of Russia,” he learned from a mutual friend and became interested in her ideas. A man attended one meeting in August 2018. It Igor Korobov spoke about the political situation in Kiev. The room was hot and the leader of the “SSR” offered to continue the dialogue on the street. At the end of the meeting, he approached Mysnyk. “He asked who I was, and then offered to earn money,” explained the man. Korobov said that he is a debtor, “the headache of a lifetime” and said that we need to deal with it. Initially was not sure whether he wants the death of Simonica or injuries, but was sure that it must be “disable”. “If I will like it, I’ll give $ 600,” said Korobov, stating that he wanted to Mysnyk broke the enemy’s knees and his eyes gouged out. The men exchanged contacts.
The very next day Mysnyk reported to law enforcement agencies received on the proposal and agreed to cooperate with the SBU to arrest Korobov. At the next meeting Korobov said Mysnik that in addition to the ordering of Simonica he is interested in the purchase of weapons and drug trafficking. He sold the man a batch of amphetamine. To the question of why Korobov Russian citizen to arm your organization (pistols and rifles), he answered directly:”I Want to create my Cosa Nostra (mafia-like criminal organization in Sicily, approx. ed.)”.
“You want to Rob people”?, asked Mysnyk. “Not people, and Jews. Jews, politicians, and those who do not like me,” – said Korobov.
Already collaborating with the SBU, Mysnyk gave final approval Korobov Russian citizen to eliminate of Simonica. He showed him the place of residence of the latter, provided photos and to study the route gave 100 UAH for transportation costs.
“He began to dream, when I agreed to beat Simonica. Fired right up,” says Masnyk.
Korobov satisfied photo “murder”, which Mysnyk showed in the confirmation of the order. He was satisfied, but the money Mysnyk gave later. Next was the stage of sale of firearms. Mysnyk had to transfer several trunks Korobov Russian citizen on the Primorsky Boulevard, not far from cafe “the Garden”. When the leader of the “SSR” went to his car for the money – he was arrested by the security personnel and the military Prosecutor’s office.
“It’s fanatical people. His idea is to Rob and to do so, so he was afraid,” – says Maxim Mysnyk about Korobova, rejoicing that he is no longer a danger to society.
However, members continue to live in Mariupol, and it is unlikely they changed their views. Why the ideology of anti-Semitism made possible in Mariupol, and how strong the threat of relapse? With this question we turned to the teacher, Moscow state University, associate Professor of the Department of historical Sciences, candidate of historical Sciences Vadim Box.
According to him, the facts of anti-Semitism in the Donetsk region was in the late 19th – early 20th century. In 1905, after published Manifesto on the establishment of the state Duma on the territory of the former Russian Empire there were many people who were unhappy that challenged the autocracy of Nicholas II. Victims of so-called pogrom then in Mariupol, a steel 22 persons, including women and children, whose remains are buried in a Jewish cemetery. “Everyday anti-Semitism has always had a place in the post-Soviet countries,” – said Vadim Box, returning to the present.
Nevertheless, he is confident that the creation and existence of such an organization in Mariupol as “the Union of Slavs of Russia”, was beneficial to certain external forces and financed from the outside. “This activity was aimed at enmity and not on bringing people together. It was clearly not in the interests of Ukraine”, – he said.
“They called themselves the “Union of Slavs”, but spread the ideas of “Russian world” through the revival of the Russian Empire and spread Imperial ambitions under the guise of innocent slogans. Short-sighted people from the municipal government invited representatives of the organization, Korobov and his people, for all sorts of events, public hearings, where they promoted their ideas,” says Professor of Moscow state University. Vadim Box were shocked and offended when, at the celebration of the carnival, together with the Department of culture city Council SSR handing out leaflets, on which was a stylized swastika.
“It was clear that the Nazis were for them a sample, and the swastika they used not as a solar symbol and as a symbol of the destruction of the Jewish community,” said Professor of Moscow state University, adding that when he visited the site of “Union of Slavs”, we realized that their program is based on chauvinism and xenophobia, which have no place in a modern civilized society.
Homegrown antisemitism, according to the Box, is a way to easily explain complicated economic and social problems. “Supposedly it is to get rid of the Jews and will be much better. It sows hatred and is one of the main problems of society,” he said. However, “the Union of Slavs of Russia” had a great impact on the minds of people in Mariupol, and the organization was not paying attention.
At the moment, the Primorsky district court began hearings in the case of the head of the “Soviet socialist Republic” Igor Korobov. The issue of opening of criminal proceedings under article 161 of the criminal code of Ukraine “Violation of equality of citizens depending on their racial, national belonging or attitude to religion”.
