Knives, iron bars, broken stick. Kyrgyz thugs collect "tribute" on behalf of thief in law
Eight men have been detained on suspicion of extortion.
Moscow police detained a group of individuals from Kyrgyzstan who had extorted money from their compatriots - taxi drivers, owners of cafes, restaurants, and construction markets.
Kyrgyz Ministry of Internal Affairs said in a press release that their Russian counterparts had first informed them about the crimes at the beginning of February 2018. They said that someone had been trying to achieve dominance over entrepreneurs in Moscow and the Moscow region on behalf of a thief in law with the initials ‘K.K.’, whose name remains withheld to date.
The racketeers demanded a monthly fee of 50.000 rubles ($790) threatening violence.
Initially, the victims were reluctant to report them, but a talk with law enforcers convinced them they should. A criminal case was initiated under Art. 163 (Extortion committed by a group of persons with violence, by previous concert). A search in the car of the detainees uncovered a few knives, iron bars, and a broken stick; everything was seized.
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
