New feature of the kingpin Zakhar Kalashov appeared in the materials of the criminal case.

Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy) is called the holder of all thieves’ common fund. He served as a distributor of money between members of the criminal community in Russia, according to the materials of the criminal case. Thus, his status of the Russian criminal community leader was confirmed once again, RIA Novosti informed with reference to a copy the indictment. According to the agency, the thief in law appointed and supervised the heads of subordinate departments and controlled the flow of illegally obtained money and other property.

In addition, from the instituting proceedings on a criminal case document it follows from that any Shakro Molodoy’s order was binding on leaders and members of the OCG.

Previously Kommersant wrote that in the case materials Kalashov is called only the leader of the Russian criminal community, which underlines the federal scale of the OCG. According to the investigation, Shakro Molodoy created strong links between criminal groups acting on their own, he developed plans for their criminal activity and distributed the spheres of influence.

The CrimeRussia has already noted that such legal term, the leader of the Russian criminal community, does not exist in the domestic law.

It will be difficult for the investigation to prove the Kalashov’s guilt in the federal level OCG organization. It needs to provide proof of hierarchical relations between Shakro Molodoy and the criminal structures of other Russian regions, such as the Far East and the Far North and the direct evidence of the Shakro Molodoy directives’ fulfillment.

With regard to Zakhar Kalashov the criminal case was initiated under Organization of a Criminal Community by a person holding the highest position in the criminal hierarchy (part 4 of Art. 210 of the Criminal Code), this article provides the imprisonment from 15 to 20 years, or life imprisonment, for a penalty.
