Bugaev detained in Krasnodar

Former Russian national football player Alexei Bugaev was detained in Krasnodar for transporting drugs. At the same time, the 2004 European Championship participant resisted law enforcement, for which he was arrested for seven days.

This was reported by the RTVI propaganda TV channel. According to it, 495 grams of mephedrone were found in the possession of the former player of Moscow's Torpedo and Lokomotiv. Bugaev confessed that he was working as a drug mule and managed to place "caches" near the dormitories of the Kuban State Agrarian University campus before his arrest.

The former footballer agreed to cooperate with the investigation and said that he began to have financial difficulties after his career ended. It got to the point where the former athlete was selling waste paper. He decided to work as a drug mule to pay off his debts for 70 thousand rubles. Bugaev also turned in his accomplices.

A criminal case for drug trafficking and sale on a particularly large scale was opened against the former Russian national team player. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
