Between Monaco and Moscow - lavish lifestyle of mob Oniani's daughter
Gvantsa Oniani is a party animal and often attends parties of Russian businessmen children.
Despite the ten-year sentence of thief in law Tariel Oniani (Taro), his daughter, 25-year-old Gvantsa Oniani, lives large. As Super reports, the ‘criminal princess’ lives in Moscow but often travels abroad, favoring Greek resorts, Monaco, and his father's homeland Georgia.
Gvantsa grew in Europe, where the mob moved in the 90's. At first, the family lived in France, but soon French authorities initiated several criminal cases against Taro. Then they moved to Spain. In 2005, the special services of this country conducted a large-scale Wasp operation to catch Russian gangsters. 50 mansions aligned with Oniani and located in the resorts of Marbella, Torremolinos, as well as in Barcelona and Alicante, were searched.

Taro had to hide from the Spanish law enforcement, but they detained his 12-year-old daughter Gvantsa. To lure out Taro, law enforcers said that the girl would be released as soon as her parents came for her.
Nevertheless, no one came after her and four days after her arrest she was released from the juvenile prison. After that, Taro returned to Russia, where in 2009 he was detained for extortion and kidnapping. In 2010, he was sentenced to 10 years in a strict-regime colony. Now Oniani is doing time in IK-6 in the Orenburg region, also known as the Cherny Delfin (Black Dolphin).
According to some information, Oniani may be released soon, which will result in global changes at the thieves’ world. The influential mob, once disowned, wants to return his status. At the same time, he prefers to be the Russian crime lord instead of Shakro Molodoy.
However, Russian authorities may prevent it. In 2010, the Federal Migration Service found Russian citizenship of Oniani illegal, and if he is extradited to Madrid, he will be jailed again. He is wanted for money laundering and the organization of a criminal community since 2005.
Fake citizenship and access to state secrets. Former Ukrainian officials get supreme posts in Crimea
More and more questions arise with regards to the staffing policy of the Crimean authorities. This summer, Roman Podsudevsky has been appointed in charge of the Yalta Commercial Port – a strategic objective. The former Ukrainian border guard officer wanted at home for divulgence of state secrets and corruption easily gained the Russian citizenship and made a successful career in Crimea. In March 2017, he was a senior security specialist in Genbank; in the same period, he attempted to become the Head of Shchelkino Municipal Administration but lost in the competition; and since December 2017, Podsudevsky became an aide to Sergei Aksenov. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how former Ukrainian enforcement officers and officials become supreme functionaries in Crimea.
Three officers of the Moscow FSB office, detained in June 2017, are defendants in the criminal case heard by the Moscow Garrison Military Court along with the retired MIA Major-General Viktor Trutnev. The official prosecution asked 7 and eight years’ imprisonment for them.
