Gudzha Kutaissky - defender of prisoners
The Georgian thief, who is now in custody, turned out to be more observant than others.
Quite an unusual criminal case is being considered in the Minusinsk Court of the Krasnoyarsk region. The defendant is Sergey Blinov, a Minusinsk colony prisoner, caught on food theft. The convict had a daily access to the food, being in charge of food distribution to the cells. The thief’s catch happened to be 8 kilograms of butter and 5 liters of milk.
The most remarkable part of the story however was another prisoner, the one who exposed Blinov. It was 39-year-old thief in law Elgudzha Turkadze (Zhemchuzhny), in the criminal world better known as Gudzha Kutaissky. He was the one to notice that the prisoners saw less food than expected. He revealed his suspicions to the prison administration. An inspection showed that Zhemchuzhny’s observance did not fail him and the unscrupulous convict became a defendant in a criminal case under Art. 158 of the Criminal Code (Theft).
Gudzha Kutaissky also acted as a witness in the court. Sergey Blinov fully admitted his guilt and even apologized – not to his fellow prisoners however, but to the prison administration.
The court will return the verdict against Blinov soon.

After the murder of Aleksander Zakharchenko, everything has changed in the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR). A redistribution of spheres of influence is ongoing in the region at all levels of the state (and not only state) power. It is not a secret that Denis Pushilin, Interim Acting Head of the DPR, has been dreaming about this post for four years. Although he was among the DPR leaders, being the Chairman of the People’s Council and Permanent Representative to the Minsk Contact Group, Pushilin had no possibility to implement his financial plans and schemes, nor had he access to shady financial flows. The ‘Trapeznikov–Tashkent’ team spreading pervasive corruption in the republic was in charge of this sector.
