Shakro Molodoy’s emissary heading to criminal Rostov
Time will tell what part Rostov-bound Avto will play in the escalating conflict between the underworld bosses.
The thief in law Avtandil Kobeshavidze (Avto), who left the Sverdlovsk region after preventive talks with the local security forces, was first seen in the Chelyabinsk region, and then in Bashkortostan. But, according to a CrimeRussia source, the thief is heading to Rostov-on-Don. Why Rostov? It would be safe to suggest that Avto’s choice is associated with the Rostov region being on the brink of criminal war after the mysterious criminal case of the local crime lord Petr Gorbatyuk.
As recently reported by a CrimeRussia’s source, high-ranking officials of the Taganrog police were forcing Gorbatyuk, who had been arrested on charges of drug possession, to convey an expensive land plot in Taganrog city center to the family one of the policemen. They attempted to lay hands on other expensive assets controlled by the crime lord. In order to break Gorbatyuk the officers resorted to local criminals. Among these names are a gang leader Dema, his underboss Lelya as well as a famous crime boss Kakha Dzhangveladze.
Time will tell what part Rostov-bound Avto will play in the escalating conflict between the underworld bosses. Kobeshavidze is considered an Ural emissary of the late Ded Hasan. Recently, after law enforcement officials talked to him, the thief left Yekaterinburg. For the 2 months he spent in the Middle Urals capital, Kobeshavidze showed interest for the notorious vegetable warehouse № 4 and was also considering two influential persons for the Thief in Law status.
Evidence of Solntsevskie leaders’ acquaintance with State Duma deputy and Hero of Russia Vladimir Shamanov and Lokomotiv trainer Yury Syomin was photos of them together, obtained by Spanish investigators from the smartphone of one of the gang leaders Arnold Spivakovsky (Tamm), who was arrested in the Costa del Sol last year in the framework of the police operation dubbed Oligarch.
