The death of Yegor Sviridov brought thousands of nationalist-minded youth on to the streets where they attacked non-Slavic passers-by in December.

The jury said Aslan Cherkesov fatally shot Sviridov during a brawl between Russian youths and the six defendants, all migrants from the predominantly Muslim North Caucasus region.

The jury said Cherkesov and his companions were guilty of starting the fight and beating Sviridov’s friends. The other five were found guilty of a lesser hooliganism charge.
