The Ministry of Justice has included the Arrest Criminal Unity (AUE) movement (banned in Russia) in the list of organizations whose activities are banned in Russia.
AUE is listed at number 78 in the list of non-profit organizations liquidated in accordance with the law "On Counteracting Extremist Activities", which the Ministry of Justice draws up on the basis of court decisions, RIA Novosti reports.
In August, the youth criminal movement, or subculture, AUE, by the decision of the Supreme Court of Russia, was recognized as an extremist organization. As explained in the Prosecutor General's Office, the movement's activities pose a real threat to the life and health of citizens, society and the state. Adolescents and young people, whose psyche is most susceptible to destructive effects, were actively involved in its activities.
Participants of AUE were often suspected of committing offenses. Thus, in St. Petersburg, two teenagers were detained, presumably from the AUE gang, who are suspected of attacking and beating a passer-by who made a remark to them.
Surgut schoolgirls, who mocked their peers and extorted money from her, turned out to be supporters of the AUE movement.
The VZGLYAD newspaper was trying to find out where the “AUE” children came from.
