Russian truckers vs highway bandits

Author of the video stopped his truck on the road to change the wheel. 3 bandits on blue Lada tryed to get ~$100 out of trucker for “crossing their territory”. He asked help via CB radio. Another trucker confirmed that those guys tryed to get money out of him too. Other truckers blocked blue Lada, bandits were punished.

After this video was published police officials stated that those bandits are well-known local criminals. Police quizzed them and let them off because of lack of the complainant.

A year later, 22 july 2013 leader of the gang 24 years old Alexey Voronov (on 0:50) was sentenced to five years of standard regime penal colony for 4 criminal episodes. No one of truckers was accused.
