Shakro Molodoy's nephew, boss Kuso, accused under "anti-thief" law
He was detained in the Krasnodar region for other charges in the spring.
Another thief in law has been charged with occupying a high position in the criminal hierarchy. The 33-year-old grand-nephew of Zakhary Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy), Shalva Ozmanov (Kuso) is being held in the SIZO-3 of Moscow, referred to as “Presnya”, on charges of intentional bodily harm.
Ozmanov was detained on May 15 in Goryachy Klyuch (Krasnodar region) in a joint operation of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Federal Security Service of Russia. The cause was an incident that occurred on Polyarnaya Street, Goryachy Klyuch 5 years ago (according to other sources, it happened in the north-east of Moscow), when during a fight with a car wash administrator, the mafia leader shot his opponent in the buttock. The story was hushed up due to reconciliation of the parties, but now, there are witnesses willing to testify.
In addition, Kuso has a gun carrying conviction after last December when he got two years’ probation for illegal carrying of a gun, which he used to threaten to customers of a Krasnodar bar. Ozmanov was detained by policemen who had come to call.
Kuso’s own attempts to return the thieves' status to the previously dethroned Besik Kvinikhidze (Beso Rustavsky), in which Shakro Molodoy was involved through Shalva’s mediation, were instrumental in Kuso’s conviction under the new article. Police got a voice message, which Kvinikhidze had sent out to jails, and it spoke of Shakro Molodoy and other thieves’ involvement in solving the issue. Thus, the number 1 thief got the chance for promotion for the status.
Kuso must have wanted to raise his dominance through Beso Rustavsky but he seems to have made it worse. According to some reports, as soon as Kuso got into Presnya, he already had a letter signed by Merab Bahiya (Bakha-Bakha), Antimoz Kukhilava (Antik) and Irakli Kalichavy (Irakli Khutu) claiming that he was not a thief but a billiard administrator. His omnipotent relative, Shakro Molodoy, helped to solve the temporarily; Merab Dzhangveladze’s (Merab Sukhumi’s) clan was obliged to him for Ahmed Yevloyev’s (Ahmed Sutuly’s) reinstated crown.
Apparently, the application of the “anti-thief” law in Russia is gaining momentum. In most cases, the charge under Art. 210.1 of the Criminal Code is combined with other serious charges for which thieves are either already detained or suspected. Thus, those crime lords who are already under investigation in the detention center or are serving time in prison are in the risk group.
