Shishkan to lose influence after arrest
Experts believe that his competitors and ‘thieves in law’ are expected to start grabbing hold of influence.
Arrested ‘thief in law’ Oleg Shishkanov (aka Oleg Ramensky, Shishkan) is likely to lose positions and influence in case his involvement in murder of a deputy of the Moscow region’s Ramensky district Tatiana Sidorova is proved. This has been told to Ura.ru by an expert at criminal culture and a reporter Aleksander Sidorov.
Sidorov says the detention of Shishkan will change “scenario and positions” in the criminal world. The reporter noted that it is incorrect to call Medvedev “the number one thief,” however he is considered one of the most ‘authoritative’ figures in the criminal circles.
Sidorov says that at the present time, there’s a split in the criminal world happening due to fight for money flows, and the arrest of Shishkan will significantly touch the power landscape.
“Despite the fact that he’s not being eliminated, his powers will remain valid in prisons. In case his guilt is proven, it’s going to be a serious term. After this slam, the others are likely to start grabbing his hold of influence,” the source told.
Shishkanov is arrested by Moscow’s Basmanny court on suspicion of commission of a crime under article 210.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Leadership in criminal hierarchy). Initially, it was reported that he had been detained on suspicion of involvement in abduction and murder of the deputy of the Moscow region’s Ramensky district Tatiana Sidorova and 3 members of her family in 2012. However, this fact has not been reflected in the criminal case, yet.
According to some reports, the arrest of Shishkan is tied to his interest in dumping business. Insiders say Shishkan has lately tried to actively play in this market on his own behalf and on behalf of his friend Gavriil Yushvaev (aka Garik Makhachkala) who had fled to Turkey following a shooting at Moskva-City (Moscow International Business Center). Due to this, the ‘thief’ started having disagreement with a leader of Podolsk organized criminal group Luchok and a few law enforcers.
