Rapper Roma Zhigan spotted at crime lord Nika Gagarinsky’s wedding
36-year-old crime lord Nikolay Dgebuadze’s wedding shed light on the balance of powers in the criminal community, marking an alliance between the Kardava-Mzareula clan and Nadir Salifov, one the most influential contemporary crime lords, and his entourage.
Nikolay Dgebuadze aka Nika Gagarinsky celebrated his wedding at Esa Royal Park, an Istanbul entertainment facility. Roma Zhigan was one of the many guests from the criminal community.
There is no information regarding Dgebuadze’s wife. However, there were reportedly almost as much – if not more – toasts to Nadir Salifov, one of the guests, than to the newly wed, according to Musavat.
Dgebuadze’s wedding is an important landmark in the politics of the contemporary criminal community; it served as an announcement for an alliance between the Kardava-Mzareula clan (the bridegroom’s clan) and Nadir Salifov. Moreover, the following prominent crime lords attended the wedding – Gocha Alpaidze aka Alfason, Tamaz Barkalaya aka Kotoma, Suliko Sharikadze, Giya Nizharadze. From Moldova and Belarus was represented by Sergey Cheban aka Kitaets and Aleksandr Kushnerov aka Sasha Kushner aka Kushner Gomelsky.
From Kardava-Mzareula, the following people attended the event – Merab Mzarelua aka Duyake (the leader), Roland Gegchkori aka Rolan Shlyapa, Merab Pipiya aka Merab Sukhumsky, David Gazzaev aka Dato Osetin, and Lekso Logia aka Lekso Galsky. Timur Kapba, Giya Zarandiya aka Giya Galsky, Makhar Gvaramiya aka Matsi, and Nukri Dochiya aka Nukri Galski also attended.
Prominent Kardava-Mzareula member Gizo Kardava aka Gizo Galski did not show up; crime lord Gela Kartava had been given a 3-year custodial sentence for forgery in Belarus in late May.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
