Lekha Irkutskiy is not only one to get a chance after Shakro Molodoy’s arrest
According to a source, Gudyna was stripped of his criminal rank in May 2014. All this time he has been unable to attend the big meeting to solve his problem.
Despite the repeated offence, a thief in law Aleksey Gudyna, better known as Lekha Irkutskiy (or Piterskiy) in the criminal world, was released on his own recognizance. Over 1.5 years, the 42-year-old criminal has been caught three times with counterfeit documents. Gudyna has a track record of name alterations and fake IDs.
Lekha Irkutskiy was arrested on July 21 when checking in at the Pulkovo airport. The thief in law planned to reach Rostov-on-Don, where a major criminal meeting was presumably to take place. In January 2015, Gudyna was arrested, while trying to leave Rostov using forged documents. Then it was reported that he also tried to attend a meeting, which was to be held in Yerevan.
According to the CrimeRussia’s source, Gudyna was stripped of his criminal rank in May 2014. All this time he has been unable to attend the big meeting to solve his problem. According to some sources, Lekha Irkutskiy was not the only one to get a chance of reclaiming his crown after Shakro Molodoy’s sudden arrest; other criminals dethroned by the prime thief in law also have such opportunity. Shakro, who had returned after Spanish imprisonment, arranged a full-fledged purge by decrowning 12 criminal lords at once. Apart from Kushner, the list included Gilani Sedoy, Shamil, Armen Khokhol, Nika Gagrinskiy, Lekso Galskiy, Beso Rustavskiy, Artyom Lipetskiy, Vlad Sharap, the Guli brothers etc.
