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 official car of former Deputy Head of Roskomnadzor and now Deputy Head of the Department of Project Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation, Maksim Ksenzov, tried to ram two foreign cars, after which an unknown person, who jumped out of the third car, crashed the car mirrors and beat up his driver.
The owner of the Norebo Group, Vitaly Orlov, seems to be having more problems every day. No sooner had he been recognized as Russia’s richest fishing industrialist with a net worth of over $1 billion that he got bombarded with lawsuits and criminal cases. So far, they have only been coming from his former business partner. However, taking into account all the new facts that indicate some opaque business practices at best, the authorities may take some issues with the billionaire as well, since there have been discrepancies in the figures of the fish supplied abroad, the prices, and the final profit, which may indicate attempted tax avoidance.
Crimea faces storm again. Sergey Aksenov may lose his post. Perhaps, he decided to play it safe and arrange a public scandal – his appointee to the Head of the Simferopol administration post. It is believed that Igor Lukashev and his seven deputies were allegedly dismissed due to the significant number of complaints from citizens about the traffic collapse, the poor state of road maintenance and cleaning of the city. The CrimeRussia tries to find out the real reason for the resignation of the Simferopol administration.
