- Pranksters jailed for 3,5 years for faking carjacking

Moscow, November 25 -Three prankster have been jailed for three and a half years for pranking a taxi driver. In the video, passengers initially sit down in the car but then ask the driver to help out their friend with shopping bags. 

“Dumshebay E., Tusupov A., Khasanov R. N. were found guilty of committing a crime under paragraph 2 of Article 166 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation and they were sentenced to real imprisonment, for a period of three years and six months, with serving punishment in a general regime penal colony , ”the authorities said on Thursday. Following this sentence, three infuencers were taken into custody. 

In March, bloggers called a UBER type taxi for a prank. When the car pulled up, two of them got into the cabin and asked the driver to open the trunk and help their friend load the shopping bags . After the taxi driver got out, one of the bloggers got behind the wheel of a BMW and drove away.

A few minutes later, the bloggers returned. They told the driver that this was a praaank!. Nevertheless, by that time the taxi driver had already called the police.

Bloggers sentenced to imprisonment regularly filmed videos with various pranks. One of them, who was in the car, filmed what was happening on video, including the driver's reaction.

One of the convicts, Ramir Khasanov, had previously had problems with the law because of his pranks in the blogger’s homeland, Kazakhstan. In March 2020, he scared the passengers of the Alma-Ata metro. Khasanov began demonstratively coughing in a carriage full of people, bringing a napkin with fake blood to his mouth.

Influencers will likely  be sent to a camp around 500 km from Moscow. The camps are generally located in small towns in regions that are difficult to access. The camps themselves are about four hectares in size, with single-storey and two-storey brick buildings. They were built at least fifty years ago and are in a bad state.

Camps generally house around 800 detainees where prisoners live in barracks of between 100 and 120 people. They sleep on bunk beds in rooms that were originally built to hold 50 to 60. There is one toilet and one washbasin per barrack, so nothing these influencers are used to.
