Kiev detains Papuna Kutaissky
The Georgian thief in law illegally entered the territory of Ukraine, despite the fact that he was banned from entry into the country.
In Kiev, officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) were detained thief in law Otari Devnozashvili, known as Papuna Kutaissky. The press service of the SBU reports that the 31-year-old shot caller is involved in a number of crimes.
It is known that during 2016-2017, Papuna, being in Kiev, led the gang, which established control over illegal amber mining in the Rivne Oblast of Ukraine.
Let us note that Papuna has already been detained in Ukraine earlier. This happened in June last year, after which he was forcibly expelled to his homeland (Georgia) with a ban on entry into Ukraine for three years. However, this ban does not stop the criminal shot caller from entry into the country again.

The clampdown on the ‘Baltic laundromat’ hasn’t destroyed the global cash-out market. ‘Black cash’ is still laundered at the state level. Apparently, the main money laundering hub is currently located in a small Central Asian country – Kyrgyzstan. Ethnic criminal groups operating in Russia, Europe, and Central Asia use it to legalize their shady proceeds. Revenues generated by the illegal business are estimated at $500 million per year. However, it is impossible to covertly launder money on a global scale. Is the national political establishment involved in the criminal schemes?
