“I came to drink wine.” Last ‘Russian mafia’ boss from Brighton Beach not allowed into Moldova
Boris Nayfeld

Biba - accompanied by two attendants - has arrived in Moldova from Moscow and been detained by the Frontier Service.

Head of ‘Russian mafia’ in the US Boris Nayfeld (aka Biba) has been deported from Chisinau to Moscow. According to deschide.md, he - accompanied by two attendants - has arrived in Moldova from Moscow and been detained by the Frontier Service. When asked about his purpose of visiting the country, he answered: “I came to drink wine.” The three spent the night in the airport’s neutral zone and took off for Moscow in the morning. Identities of Nayfeld’s accompanying persons are not exposed, however one of them is reported to be an Austrian citizen.

The 70-year-old Boris Nayfeld was released after his term in the US on parole. Wealth status of the once wealthy and influential criminal has wavered dramatically over the last few years. About a year ago, in his interview with American Associated Press, he said that he would like to return to Russia, because his skills would be more helpful in the country. The media had not reported about Biba’s arrival in Moscow.

The native of Belarus’ Gomel (according to some reports, worked as a house-painter) emigrated to the USA in 1970s. Upon his arrival at Brighton Beach, he found himself among the entourage of a criminal mob close to thieves in law community Evsey Agron (aka Evsey Leningradsky). The latter was a founder of the ‘Russian mafia’ in the U.S. A few years later, he became the head of the ‘Russian mafia’ himself, took part in repartition of the drug trade market, dealt with heroin delivery from Thailand, had a few records in the US In 2014, Boris was released from another term and embezzled property that had been earned and estimated at millions of dollars. When the now aged Biba got into difficulties, he decided on an ambiguous scam related to extortion. However, he failed. When he was detained, he confessed he could not even pay for the lawyer’s services, so a public defender was provided for him. He started cooperating with the investigation and turned in his other accomplices in the crime. For that, the prosecutor sought for the minimum term for the elderly boss of the ‘Russian mafia’. During his last speech, in July, 2017, Biba - speaking in Russian - asked forgiveness for what he’d done and said he “would like to die at home.”
