Guga’s gathering disrupted in Odessa
The thief in law was detained before the beginning of the meeting, where the mafia bosses were supposed to redistribute spheres of influence in criminal business.
Reports revealed details of Sergey Glonti’s detention. The Georgian thief in law is known in certain circles as "Guga".
The thief was detained before the gathering that Sergey Glonti had intended to hold in an entertainment venue in Odessa. The mafia bosses were supposed to redistribute spheres of influence in criminal business at the meeting. In particular, it had been planned to discuss apartment thefts and carjacking.
However, law enforcement agencies found out about the meeting and came to detain Guga, a man of 46, on Tuesday, May 9. Since Sergey Glonti is in Ukraine illegally, he might be deported. Besides, the police are checking whether the mafia boss is involved in certain crimes committed in the Odessa region.
We should add that Guga had been deported from Ukraine before. He was expelled to Georgia in 2008. Then Department of Organized Crime Control established that the thief had come to the country to distribute spheres of criminal influence in its territory. In particular, Glonti was planning to establish close relations with ethnic gangs and thieves in law to further influence the criminal situation in Kiev and Ukraine altogether, it is said.

They claim that the ‘future’ road would provide access to the new perinatal center, school, and homes – while at this point, a contractor has been just selected and permission documentation is in preparation. The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
