Rafik Massalinsky rebelling against Guli
In early December 2016 in Istanbul, Rafik Eyvazov met with a cousin of now deceased Rovshan Lenkoransky and agreed to give away the place of residence of Guli’s brothers, one of whom was a thief in law, in exchange for a certain amount of money. Soon it became known to Guli himself.
The one-eared Azerbaijani thief-in-law Rafik Eyvazov, better known to an inner circle as Rafik Massalinsky, has decided to take revenge on his opponents. According to a source familiar with the situation, there has been recently distributed a ‘speech’ on behalf of the crime lord in the Azerbaijani diaspora circles, in which he insists he has no idea why he had been so severely punished. According to some reports, the thief-in-law’s message is very emotional and has caused mixed reactions.
Let us recall that a video of the bloody drama involving Rafik Eyvazov appeared on the Internet not so long ago. The video shows a group of unknown persons cutting the crime lord’s ear. The whole video is practically covered with blood.
Reportedly, the reprisal took place in Turkey. Sources now propose the following version of what happened: supposedly, in early December 2016 in Istanbul, Rafik Eyvazov met with a cousin of now deceased Rovshan Lenkoransky and agreed to give away the place of residence of Guli’s brothers, one of whom was a thief in law, in exchange for a certain amount of money. Soon it became known to Guli himsel, and then Eyvazov was attacked, losing his ear as a result.
January 10, there was a mass skirmish in the Narimanovsky district of Baku, involving about 20 people. As Sputnik Azerbaijan reports, the brutal massacre occurred between Guli and Eyvazov’s groups of associates. According to Report Information Agency, the cause of the armed clash was the incident with Rafik Massalinsky. Criminalists found empty cartridge cases at the site of the collision.

Rafik Massalinsky and late Godja Bakinsky
As for Rafik Massalinsky, it is known that he was granted the title in 2012. The thief-in-law is a relative of the now deceased crime lord Mamed Guseynov. Eyvazov was ‘crowned’ with the blessing of an Azerbaijani thief-in-law Alibala Gamidov nicknamed Godja, who was killed in Turkey in summer 2013. Rumor has it, that Eyvazov was crowned on the condition that he would intentionally go to jail to challenge the influence of Guli, who had been imprisoned since 1995. Speaking about his criminal status, apart from Godja, Eyvazov also referred to Vagif Bakinsky. Godja is dead; as for Vagif, according to some information, he has told Eyvazov not to count on his protection.
