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.
Major general Igor Vasiliev, Head of the Engineering Support Service of the Federal Protection Service (FPS), and lieutenant general Ulitin subordinate to him are currently in the middle of a scandal. However, it is unlikely that they lose their posts. Reportedly, the two generals are just the tip of the huge corruption iceberg in the law enforcement structures. This is not the first embezzlement episode in their careers.
