Panyushin is said to have committed "nine serious crimes, including murders in Russia."

"He will be sent to Turkey for extradition to his country," the newspaper writes.

According to reports, Panyushin fled Russia to Ukraine and received a Ukrainian passport with a different surname and date of birth. After that, he arrived in Cyprus.

In May 2020, the Investigative Committee of Russia reported that in 2000, Viktor Panyushin was elevated to the status of a so-called thief in law in the Kursk, Oryol and Belgorod regions.

As noted by the department, Panyushin created a criminal community and led it.
