Saakashvili posted video of Poltava’s detention
The former president of Georgia has long been taking strong interest in the members of the criminal elite.
In Ukraine another titled thief in law was arrested. This time, the 78-year-old thief in law Vladimir Dribny, better known as Poltava, fell hands of the security forces. The detention took place on July 24; however, it became known, thanks to the Head of the Odessa Region Mikhail Saakashvili, only now. On his Facebook page he posted a message, as well as operative video of the kingpin’s detention in the entertainment venue. It is known that after the outreach talks Poltava left the territory of Ukraine.
According to Saakashvili, the operative information was received earlier that in the Odessa area there is a thief in law, trying to influence the criminal situation. Based on this data, the security forces conducted search of the criminal boss, in which they succeeded. He was found in one of the entertainment venues. After Vladimir Dribny’s arrest, an "explanatory conversation" was carried out, after which he left the territory of Ukraine.
It is worth recalling that the former President of Georgia Mikhail Saakashvili has long been taking interest in the members of the criminal elite. The concept of thief in law was introduced in the Georgian legislation on his direct initiative, which set the punishment for membership in the thieves’ world.
The day before the special services detained the head of the Special Machinery and Communication (STiS) FSO and charged him with abuse of official powers. The FSB believes that Makhonov may be complicit in a crime detected.
The long-term confrontation between respected in the criminal world thief in law Badri Koguashvili (Badri Kutaissky) and the punitive system has recently resulted in another information leak. A video (in fact, just a slide show) has been uploaded on YouTube with a narrative implying that Koguashvili – posing as a thief-in-law of the old school – violates the thieves’ code himself.
