The Biryulyovo district made headlines on October 13 after thousands of antimigrant protesters stormed a local vegetable warehouse, where many labor migrants work, and clashed with police.
That incident followed the killing of a Russian man by a suspected migrant from the Caucasus.
On October 14, police arrested more than 1,200 migrant workers in Biryulyovo. On Tuesday, police arrested an Azerbaijani citizen suspected in the killing of the Russian man. A court in Moscow has closed the vegetable warehouse in Biryulyovo for 90 days.
