FSB officers detain thief in law Kuso in Goryachiy Klyuch
According to sources, siloviki have come into possession of Beso Rustavsky’s notes confirming that Shakro played a significant role in restoring his “thieves'” title.
Thief in law Shalva Ozmanov aka Kuso has been detained in Goryachiy Klyuch. The vor is famous for his kinship with Shakro Molodoy.
Law enforcers have conducted a large-scale special operation. Not only special services but also the local Ministry of Internal Affairs has participated in the detention of Kuso. Now Ozmanov has been taken to Moscow. He is charged with part 2 of Art. 111 of the Russian Criminal Code (Intentional Infliction of Harm to Health Dangerous to Human Life). It concerns an incident from 5 years ago, when the thief shot his opponent in the left buttock during a showdown with a car wash administrator on Polyarnaya Street in Goryachiy Klyuch. Back then, the whole thing was hushed up due to reconciliation of the parties. However, some sources say that witnesses willing testify in the case have appeared.
This is all the more noteworthy because Kuso has already been convicted for owning a weapon. In December last year, he received two years’ probation for illegally carrying a pistol, which he used to threaten visitors of one of the Krasnodar bars. This was where the police who arrived on the call detained Ozmanov.
However, this time the thief in law faces a more serious article, sources believe. The interest of law enforcers in Shakro Molodoy’s grand-nephew is connected with the recent attempt by the latter to restore the thieves’ powers of 35-year-old Besik Kvinikhidze, aka Beso Rustavsky. To recall, he is currently in the special regime penal colony No. 7 of the Panitskaya village of the Krasnoarmeysky district, the Saratov region.
According to sources, siloviki have come into possession of Kvinikhidze’s notes, which he has sent to the Russian colonies, confirming that Shakro had played a significant role in restoring his “thieves'” title. It was Kuso who acted as a mediator between Beso and Shakro. It is possible that now the latter is facing a term under a new article that has recently appeared in the Russian criminal code. It concerns the toughening of responsibility for the leaders of the criminal environment, in particular for thieves in the law, after the issuance of the corresponding presidential decree.
Deposit Insurance Agency and ‘criminal duo’ of its First Deputy General Director Miroshnikov and colonel–billionaire Cherkalin
Valery Miroshnikov, First Deputy General Director of the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA), has fled Russia and intends to resign. Experts explain his escape by the arrest of FSB colonel Kirill Cherkalin charged with swindling amounting to 12 billion rubles ($191.4 million); Miroshnikov and Cherkalin had close ties. In addition, the high-ranked insurer was a friend of fugitive FSB general Viktor Voronin – who had assisted to late banker Vladimir Kogan in the resolution of Bank UralSib and then relocated to Israel. The CrimeRussia reviewed operations of the ‘unsinkable’ Deposit Insurance Agency and its top manager Valery Miroshnikov – as well as his extensive connections actively used in the course of liquidation of Russian banks. The main question is: why is the Central Bank of Russia turning a blind eye to suspicious actions of the DIA?
