The only classic vor in Urals, Gia Sverdlovsky, under police control
This is reported by sources in the region.
The thief in law, Georgy Akoev, who has served an 11-year term, also known as Gia Sverdlovskiy, is currently “the most significant figure in the criminal world of Yekaterinburg,” although he lives “quietly and humbly.” Ura.ru learned this from sources in security agencies of the city and the criminal environment.
According to the Ural police officers responsible for the fight against organized crime, today the Sverdlovsk region has only one classic vor, and this is Gia Sverdlovsky. At the same time, a source in the criminal environment says that, despite his criminal ‘weight,’ Akoev "tries to keep a low profile."
“He has some financial flows, but he does not meddle in power,” says the source in criminal circles. “He fulfills all the requirements of a person under surveillance: he regularly reports to the police and observes curfew: at 22 o'clock he is already at home.”
However, the vor still has one violation. The CrimeRussia reported that at the end of August 2018, the security forces came to a restaurant where Akoev was not alone. The meeting was reportedly attended by supporters of the thief in law, including the keeper of the common fund Vladimir Solomennikov, aka Soloma, mafia enforcer in the city Levan Akoev (Lyova), as well as representatives of the thief in law Avtandil Kobeshavidze, known as Avto. According to Ura.ru insiders, after the meeting, which the security forces considered a “gathering,” Akoev was cautioned and he “understood everything.”
The publication cites another curious fact from the life of Gia Sverdlovsky. Allegedly, once he stayed in a restaurant too long again, and he did it intentionally so that “he would not be pulled out of the region.” His presence was ostensibly required at a Moscow gathering where he was reluctant to go.
Georgy Akoev was released from colony number 3 in the village of Kharp (YNAO), also known as Polar Owl, in August 2017. The thief in law flew from the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug to Yekaterinburg with his father Shalva Akoev, who met him at the exit from the colony.
To recap, Giya Sverdlovsky served an 11-year sentence for Robbery (part 4 of Art. 162 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Akoev was ‘crowned’ in prison in 2008 under the patronage of his uncle Timur Sverdlovsky and Ded Khasan, who are now dead. Gia Sverdlovsky is a grand-nephew of the latter.
Sources reported that the released vor had every chanSverdce to settle in the capital of the Urals and take a seat that was freed in 2014 after the death of his titled uncle Timur Sverdlovsky. That is, to become the leader of the underworld in the region.
Six months ago, no one could predict the state of the MIA General Administration for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region by the time of the forthcoming elections. After the appointment of Moscow general Roman Plugin in charge of it, the St. Petersburg police has undergone significant changes. Major general of justice Oleg Antropov, Head of the Main Investigations Directorate, is ‘the last man standing’ from the old command of the MIA General Administration. Most probably, he is going to become the next victim of ‘janitor’ Plugin.
