OCG members of thief in law Guli’s enforcer in Odessa get detained

July 14, officers of the National Police of Ukraine have neutralized an ethnic crime group headed by a certain Sadik, who proclaimed himself Odessa enforcer on the part of thief in law Nadir Salifov (Guli).

According to Head of the General Department of the National Police of Ukraine in Odessa region, Dmitry Golovin, “a special operation by police in Odessa has dealt a blow to the underworld.”

Calling the detainees the participants of a “bold ethnic OCG, which appears to be gaining momentum,” Golovin noted that it is not the first time that Sadik’s gang has come to the attention of the law enforcers. They managed to detain its members after another offense. The OCG representatives had a car accident; they beat the representatives one of the city public organizations, who were also involved in the accident.

According to Dumskaya, a crime scene investigation team headed to the scene. It neutralized and detained those responsible for the fight. Unregistered weapons – a pistol that was sent for examination – was seized from them. It is reported that the detainees were wanted for racketeering and other crimes.


To recall, after being released from an Azerbaijani prison where he had been serving his term a year ago, a thief in law Nadir Salifov aka Guli settled in Istanbul (some sources say, he has recently moved to the UAE).


Throughout 2018, acting through his emissaries, Guli has been establishing control over the business of compatriots in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Russian regions and a number of countries of the former USSR, one of which is Ukraine.

As reported by Strana.ua in late June referring to a source in law enforcement bodies, Guli’s proxies in Odessa were at odds with representatives of another thief in law Antimoz Kukhilava (Antimos), the region’s underboss who also resides in Turkey.
