Court leaves mafia boss Gleb Ivanovsky in custody
Gleb Ashumov was detained on August 29 in the Rostov Region for evading administrative supervision. He tried to fly to Ukraine.
The Kineshma City Court left the mafia boss Gleb Ashumov (Gleb Ivanovsky), who is accused of evading administrative supervision (part 1 of Article 314.1 CCRF) in custody. The court considered that “the public interest is predominant in relation to Ashumov’s interests, so more loyal procedural measures will be ineffective.”
Ashumov was detained in the Rostov Region on August 29 while trying to fly out of the Platov airport to Ukraine. He was placed under administrative supervision after leaving the colony in April 2018. The kingpin was serving his term for drugs. Previously, he was convicted of several serious crimes, including murder.
Gleb Ivanovsky was ‘crowned’ in September 2013 in Turkey by the Georgian thieves in law from among the supporters of Tarot and Merab Jangveladze. His ‘coronation’ was undertaken in opposition to the only Ivanovo mafia boss Ruben Kosyan.
After being detained in 2015, Ashumov was taken to the Butyrka pre-trial detention center. The prisoners in the detention center refused to recognize his status in the underworld. Later, when the convict was taken to serve his sentence to the Pskov Region, Merab Jangveladze confirmed his authority by telephone.
Ashumov was released in April of this year. After leaving the penal colony, administrative supervision was imposed on him. From the first days, he began to violate it and then finally disappeared from the law enforcement. The kingpin was forced to leave the Ivanovo Region, fearing reprisals from Kosyan, who is known for his intolerance towards titled competitors on his territory.
Ruben Kosyan was also arrested in 2015 for drug possession. In June 2018, he was released and returned to the Ivanovo Region.
The release of authoritative thief-in-law Tariel Oniani (Taro) became a milestone event for the criminal world. The conflict with followers of Ded Khasan was put on hold for the duration of his almost 10-year-old prison term – the rival parties were waiting for the first steps of Taro. However, the law enforcement authorities decided to procrastinate the intrigue further and detained the crowned thief for 40 days immediately after his release. Still, taking that ‘thief № 1’ Shakro Molodoy is serving a prison term, his successor Shishkan keeps low profile, while other thieves-in-law are either abroad or disorganized, Taro has a chance to reassert himself as a serious power.
