For what purpose did the influential Belarusian kingpin go to Abkhazia?⁠

In Sochi, 50-year-old Belarusian thief in law Alexander Kushnerov, better known as Sasha Kushner and Kushner Gomelsky, was detained.

The kingpin was taken while passing passport control on the Russian-Abkhaz border. According to information posted on the site of the Adler District Court of Sochi, Kushnerov was charged with part 1 of Art. 19.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (Disobedience to the lawful order or demand of a police officer, serviceman or employee of an institution or institution of the penal system in connection with the performance of their duties to protect public order and ensure public safety). According to our information, Kushner will soon be deported to Turkey, where he moved to live about a year ago.

Let us remind you that the Belarusian kingpin decided to emigrate after his period of preventive supervision ended in his homeland.

For what purpose Alexander Kushnerov intended to visit Abkhazia - it is unclear. Perhaps the Abkhazian affairs of the Belarusian thief in law arose in connection with the established relations with influential Nadir Salifov (Guli). Kushnerov is already called the head of the power bloc of the Azerbaijani kingpin. In addition, it is possible that Kushnerov had affairs in the capital of the Krasnodar Territory. A businessman from Sochi, a patron of art and assistant to the State Duma deputy Alexander Karelin Ruben Tatulian, known as Robson, could search for meetings with the Belarusian kingpin. The businessman, as has long been known, is looking for any opportunity to get into the thieves' environment and 'turn around in it. Meeting with the reputable Kushnerov, of course, could flatter his ambitions.

Earlier, the CrimeRussia wrote that Robson, who during the life of Ded Hasan was an underboss of the Krasnodar Territory, is not very happy in thieves' circles. So, in June of 2017 at a 'meeting' in the Czech Republic Gayoz Zviadadze (Gia Kutaisi) abruptly declared to Tatulian that he considered him a 'fraerer', who should not interfere in the affairs of thieves.


Sasha Kushner was crowned in May 2011 by Ded Hasan. In March 2015, it became known that Shakro Molodoy, a thief in law, who had returned from Spain, arranged a real 'cleansing', having debunked many thieves at once, however, according to some sources, Kushner nevertheless managed to undergo a 're-certification'.
