Yuri Vereschagin carried through the direct management of the gang’s members. His actions were coordinated by Yakovlev. Vereschagin is a radical Islamist, the member of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a supporter of the Movement for the Independence of Eastern Turkestan.

Yakovlev stands himself, as a large polygraphist. Yet he is a native citizen of the city of Temirtau in the Kazakh SSR, therefore he has extensive links with Central Asian criminals. Having seized the property complex of LLC Continent, Yakovlev planned to expand his business to the markets of Central Asia, including Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

Yakovlev previously stated that the enterprises he controls are in the GPA (Global Packaging Alliance), which also includes companies Diamond Packaging (USA), Cartmont (Mexico), Goncalves (Brazil), Rob.

In addition, Yakovlev declared that his company Polygraphoformlenie is a partner of such well-known enterprises as Nestle, Wrigley's, Baltika, Orimi Trade, Dirol, Kraft Foods, Japan Tobacco International, British American Tobacco.
