“He would have been killed right away.” Expert evaluates consequences for vor Mukha, who gave up title
The thief refused his status on camera.
The decision of Oleg Mukhametshin, known as Mukha, or Mukha Lyuberetsky, to renounce the title of crime boss was commented on by a specialist in criminal culture Alexander Sidorov.
“In Soviet times, he would have been killed right away,” the expert is sure. But now times have changed and such a decision is not necessarily a death sentence, explaining Sidorov. He is confident that in today's realities, much depends "on how important his figure is in the criminal world."
Sidorov also has no doubt that Mukhmetshin really refused the title. Although for the first time in history this is documented in a statement addressed to the chief of police.
Sidorov interprets the reasons for this act as follows — “he was frightened of something.” But this is probably due to a new article on punishment for thieves in law. After receiving the application of Mukha, police officers asked why he refused the title. To which the authority replied that "he simply does not consider himself to be such."
Mukha Lyuberetsky was born in Kazan, but carried out criminal activity in the capital, was “crowned” in 1994 by the famous crime lords Andrei Isaev (Rospis) and Vladimir Savoskin (Savoska). Mukha was part of the so-called "Slavic" wing of the crime lords.
On the day of his “abdication”, Mukha was going to go to the resort in Sochi with his wife, but was detained by the police.
