Moscow SOBR nabs thief in law Aksen following summit attended by Tyurik
The thief in law was released after a talk.
Sergei Aksenov (Aksen), an influential Slavic thief in law (vor), was detained in Moscow. Rosbalt reported citing a law enforcement source that the security forces detained the vor as he was on his way from a small thief summit in the Moscow region.
The law enforcement had learned that Aksen was going to meet with the thief in law Vladimir Tyurin (Tyurik) and another prominent crime boss the day before.
After everyone left, Aksen’s motorcade (a limousine and off-road vehicles accompanying it with guards) got pulled over by traffic police officers in the entry to the city. The SOBR fighters reportedly forced the bodyguards down on the ground, the thief in law included. After that, Aksenov was taken to the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, where they had a conversation and released him.
Last time Aksen was mentioned in the press was when an August summit in Moscow approved Oleg Shishkanov (Shishkan) as the “main thief” of the country.
Oleg Zaytsev had wide connections within the criminal world and law enforcement agencies. This is being related to an organized crime group headed by Ruslan Kilievich that had allegedly been patronized by a former Federal Security Service Directorate officer Oleg Natalchenko. The crime group had also been a core driver for almost disbanding the criminal investigation department of the police.
