Crowned thieves from all Russian regions flocked there to solve their issues.
A source told the CrimeRussia that if the investigators would manage to discover the assets registered on Manukyan and Otto, this property would be confiscated in accordance with part 4 of art. 210 of the Russian Criminal Code. As a reminder, Kalashov is charged not only with extortion, but also with organizing a crime group.
