During the investigation, Datsik also admitted that since 1998 he has been part of an armed group that regularly travels to European countries to abduct and kill people on national and racial grounds.

Vyacheslav Valerievich Datsik, whose biography was previously associated only with sports, was detained in the city on the Neva River in early 2007. According to the results of the examination, he was declared insane and was sentenced to treatment in a closed psychiatric clinic. As Datsik himself argued, the diagnosis that the doctors made was schizophrenia.
At the same time, his accomplice was found guilty of 22 attacks and sentenced to 6 years of real imprisonment. Datsik was pleased with the verdict, because he believed that it was easier to escape from the clinic. Before the trial, he was in the "Crosses".
Despite the strict supervision, Datsik in the clinic felt very free. He had almost unlimited access to the Internet, regularly communicated by mobile phone. In 2010, even he himself spread the rumor about his death during an unsuccessful escape.
In 2010, he was transferred to the regional psychiatric hospital in Druzhnoselsky, where there was no prison regime at all. On the first day Datsik escaped.
Having escaped from the clinic, he immediately robbed another cell phone shop and tried to hide in Norway with the money. He himself showed up in this northern country at the police station, where he asked for political asylum. At the same time Datsik handed over a Makarov pistol. The story of Datsyk was told by the leader of the "Slavic Union" banned in Russia, Dmitry Demushkin. According to him, the former fighter first moved to Estonia, and from there to Norway, where he was helped by the leaders of the local organization cell.
In Norway, he was put in prison for illegally carrying weapons. A few days later it was officially announced the refusal of political asylum and forced deportation back to Russia.

The fighter himself claimed that the Russian authorities tortured him, using compulsory psychiatric treatment for his political position.
In December 2010, Datsik was sentenced in Norway to 8 months in prison.
While in Norway, he repeatedly shocked law enforcement agencies with his extravagant statements. So, Datsik announced that he was an undercover FSB agent hired to kill the famous Chechen terrorist Ahmed Zakayev, who is hiding in London.Allegedly, he is forced to do this in order to gain freedom for his comrade who is serving a life sentence in one of the Russian high-security prisons. However, this one, like many other stories told by Datsik, did not find documentary evidence.
