As for Poluzver’, it is known that he is 47; in the 90s, he created an organized group in the mining towns of Zverevo and Gukovo, which soon gained control of Rostov-on-Don and became known as Selmash. 

The gang was engaged in racketeering, extortion, business protection, and kidnapping of rich people, Fakty reports. The backbone of the group comprised of athletes from the Caucasus.

Poluzver’ used extremely harsh methods. For example, in 1998, he had a disagreement with the leader of another Selmash grouping, Vladimir Kaplunov. They argued over the control of Gulliver, the largest regional market. During one of the mob showdowns, Poluzver’ broke Kaplunov’s head with a baseball bat, and in the course of the other, Kaplunov shot two henchmen of the offender.

In early 2000s, the Rostov Prosecutor's Office initiated a criminal case under part 2 of Art. 126 of the Russian Criminal Code (Kidnapping) against Imanali and put him on the international wanted list. The bulk of his organized crime group ended up behind bars for various crimes, but Poluzver’ moved to neighboring Ukraine, where he lived using a false passport in the name of Andrey Rodin.
