On March 16, 2008, in Moscow, a about 15 neo-nazis attacked a group of 7 people who were on their way to an antifascist concert. 20 year old Alexey Krylov from Noginsk (Moscow region) was stabbed to death. The attack had been discussed on a :Spartak; football team fansite forum.

The attack took place at 18.40 near :Kitai gorod; metro station (in a walk distance from the Kremlin).

The antifascists believe it to be a planned action, because the :Spartak; fansite contained an instruction on how to conduct reconnaissance in the area of the :Art Garbage; club, where the concert was to take place.

Reportedly, there were several minor fights with the neo-nazis, and somebody sprayed pepper gas in the club. The concert didn't take place.

The police questioned the witnesses.

It is not the first incident of this sort in Moscow. In April 2006, Alexander Ryukhin was stabbed to death on his way to a punk concert. Three neo-nazis were charged in connection with this attack and sentenced up to 6 years of imprisonment.
