Thief in law Nedelya's henchmen enter European states with false passports
Searches at members of the criminal gang also turned up weapons, ammunition and many cell phones.
Employees of the criminal police of Ukraine have conducted more than 20 searches on the facts of contract killings that occurred recently in the territory of the Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk regions, Deputy Head of the National Police Vyacheslav Abroskin announced on his Facebook page.
In the course of operational activities in these regions, as well as in Kiev, firearms, ammunition, a lot of mobile phones that were once used for crimes, as well as many EU passports, were found at homes of persons related to criminal gangs.
As Abroskin writes, thief in law Andrey Nedzelsky (Nedelya) also uses such fake passports, acquiring them from crooked employees of special bodies from different countries of the world. He also provided his guards with them. Now all documents have been withdrawn.
The Deputy Head of the National Police added that Nedelya has recently led an illegal lifestyle, since he has many questions both from Ukrainian security officials and their counterparts from European countries, so they are looking for him together.
In the end, Abroskin concluded that "the mafia is a connection of state, court, and crime."
“There can be no thieves in law inside the mafia, but this 'thief' is probably an exception, he is in it,” the Deputy Head of the National Police concluded his reflection on Nedzelsky.
There has indeed been little information about the crime boss recently. In the summer of 2017, he was detained in France with a fake Hungarian passport. He could face deportation to Hungary and up to 5 years' term for forging documents.
After that, there were reports that he was free, but not in a hurry to go home, since there is nothing to do there without a thievish' status.
The status of Nedzelsky was 'suspended' in mid-June 2017 at a gathering in Greece. The reason for this was Nedelya's conflict with his former 'godfather' David Sebiskveradze (Dato Kutaissky).
At the same time, recently there was information in the Ukrainian press that he was a mafia enforcer in Central and Western Ukraine, Nedelya openly hosts deputies of the Verkhovna Rada in Kiev’s Premier Palace on Fridays and Saturdays.
