Ex-enemies Osetrina and Miron unite to sideline Shakro Molodoy
They stated that they were successors of the criminal empire of Ded Khasan (Grandfather Khasan) and began to collect money from businessmen for the common fund.
New pretenders took up the struggle for the title of ‘thief number one’ in Russia. This time around, Eduard Asatryan (Edik Osetrina) and Dmitry Chanturia (Miron) declared about their ambitions to become a successor of Aslan Usoyan (Ded Khasan). Earlier they were enemies, but united for the sake of gaining leadership in the criminal world. According to Rosbalt, they have even started fixing meetings with businessmen, ‘authorities’, and representatives of organized criminal groups from the regions, to whom they say that it is now necessary to replenish their common fund. Notably, the meetings are held in restaurant Karetny Dvor, where Ded Khasan was killed, and at the Golden Palace hotel, where the main ‘thief office’ was formerly located, in which Shakro Molodoy was sitting.
Zakhar Kalashov did not have a special affection for Osetrina. Even before many criminals were deadpan towards him. Eduard Asatryan returned to Moscow in August 2017 after his release from prison. But he kept a low profile, obviously, to be off the radar of the siloviki, who have recently been proactively detaining thieves or simply deporting them from the country. In addition, his son Sergey Asatryan (Serezha Bentley) was recently convicted. During the transfer from Moscow to the Nizhny Novgorod correctional facility-1, Osetrina Jr. got into pre-trial detention center No. 2 in Mitino, where he was not recognized as a thief. Sources say that the instruction not to recognize the title of Sergey Asatryan came from thief in law Viktor Zharinov (Caesar), supported by the brothers Gela and Gizo Kardava, Dmitry Chanturia (Miron), Valery Farizov (Valera Tbilissky), Georgy Dzhanelidze (Gogi Pitersky), Makhare Gvaramia (Matsik), Koba Shemazashvili (Koba Rustavsky), Kakha Dzhangveladze (Shalvovich) and Zviad Ozmanov (Zviad Tbilissky).
According to the above, Asatryan Jr. is not entitled to be called a thief since March 2013. Five years ago after murder of Ded Khasan thieves in the law started to divide his inheritance and to defend their power. At the same time Dmitry Chanturia and Eduard Asatryan clashed. As a result, Miron initiated a gathering, at which thieves in law exchanged reciprocal claims against each other. And when they ran out of arguments, a fight broke out in which the Asatryan clan was defeated. According to some data, while the ‘authorities’ were firmly enduring the beatings, Sergey Asatryan hid in the toilet. Criminals have long intended to deprive Serezha Bentley of the status, but only the opportunity came.
After that, Osetrina fell by the wayside in the fight for the ‘throne’ of the main thief. Miron was not approved because of lack of experience. Usoyan’s successor was Shakro Molodoy who returned from the Spanish prison.
Now that Kalashov is less likely to return to the game, Miron found himself ready to realize the highest ambitions, and suddenly decided to reconcile with Osetrina. They created a coalition of Osetrina's weight in the criminal world and Miron's financial means.
Earlier, The CrimeRussia reported that another contender for the title of 'thief number one' can be 45-year-old criminal Nadir Salifov (Guli), who had served 22 years behind bars.
It is noteworthy that earlier in the law enforcement agencies of Russia there was focus on preventing by all means the gatherings, at which the issue of appointing the successor of Shakro Molodoy could be resolved before the presidential elections and the World Cup in Russia.
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FPS) of Russia has been rocked by new scandals. Several regional FPS bosses and Nikolai Barinov, a former deputy head of the agency, have been detained for bribe-taking. What could be the consequences of these high-profile arrests for the penitentiary service as a whole and for its Director Gennady Kornienko?
