Andrei Voznesensky, together with three accomplices, extorted 19 million from a businessman who had problems with taxes. He faced a criminal case for tax evasion. The thief in law, together with his accomplices, promised to resolve this issue.

But when transferring part of the amount, the officers of the FSB of Russia in the Tula region caught all four. As it turned out, the businessman collaborated with the security forces. In the summer of 2021, the Leninsky District Court gave Khobot 6.5 years, his two accomplices 4.5 years each, the third – six years in prison. However, Voznesensky is not happy with the verdict and challenges it in a higher court.
