Lawyers of the thief in law believe that Ruslan Gegechkori would have been in danger in the colony of Tuva, where the incident had occurred.

Thief in law Ruslan Gegechkori, responsible for the mass brawl in the mosque of a correctional camp in Tuva, has been taken to the Krasnoyarsk region.

As reported by Rosbalt, Ruslan Zugdidsky aka Shlyapa Mladshy, serving time for possession of drugs, is to be transferred to a Minusinsk prison.

Let us recall that the rampage in the prison mosque, organized by prisoners supporting the crime lord, had attracted much publicity.

The February incident in the Tuva colony started during the thief in law’s conflict with representatives of the Chechen and Dagestan diaspora. The son of another famous thief in law Roland Gegechkori (Roland Shlyapa) Ruslan Zugdidsky took a shot at the entire Chechen nation – and was punched to the face. On the same day, Shlyapa Mladshy and 20 his associates broke into the mosque located in the penal colony and battered some eight natives of Chechnya and Dagestan, breaking the arm to one of them.

Thanks to the media, the story did not go unnoticed, angering the Muslim community. Shlyapa Mladshy, his father, thief in law Roland Gegechkori, and other thieves from the clan, which, according to the CrimeRussia, includes Gela Kardava (Gela) and Merab Mzarelua (Duyake, started receiving threats from the natives of Chechnya and Dagestan.

On his Facebook page, Deputy Chairman of the All-Russia Interethnic Youth Union Azamat Mintsaev said that thieves in law have come to a wrong place with their ‘code’. "And they are to pay dearly for the massacre in the mosque."

Other informal leaders of ethnic Muslim diasporas in Russia had also condemned the incident in the colony, and the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service also concerned itself with the occasion. At the end of February, it became known that thieves in law began to look for a mediator who could settle the conflict peacefully. Sources mentioned Chechen thief in law Aziz Batukaev as a parliamentarian.


Prisoners beaten in the Tuva colony

However, as Rosbalt notes citing an informed source, the intensity of emotions has recently declined, although, as the Federal Penitentiary Service representative believe, the conflict may rekindle any time. Moreover, lawyers of the thief in law believe that their client is in danger, stating that Gegechkori constantly receives threats of reprisal. According to the criminal’s defenders, during their last visit to the detention center, he showed them marks of beating on his body.

It was for these reasons that the FPS leadership decided to send Ruslan Gegechkori to serve his sentence to another place. Currently, he expects further transfer to a pre-trial detention center of Achinsk.
