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.

Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
