Ukrainian security forces pin down candidate for thief's 'crown'
A citizen of one of the countries of Transcaucasia arrived in Ukraine earlier this year and has already been detained several times by law enforcement agencies.
The Security Service of Ukraine got on the track, detained, and expelled from the territory of the country the so-called pretender for the thief's 'crown’. This was reported by the press service of the SBU.
The agency's website specifies that the 38-year-old citizen of one of the countries of Transcaucasia arrived in Ukraine earlier this year and has already been detained several times by law enforcement agencies. The security forces suspect that the purpose of the unwelcome visitor was the creation and leadership of a criminal group.
"The so-called 'candidate', relying on the support of one of the thieves in law, planned to create an organized criminal group to commit serious crimes," the SBU said.
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FPS) of Russia has been rocked by new scandals. Several regional FPS bosses and Nikolai Barinov, a former deputy head of the agency, have been detained for bribe-taking. What could be the consequences of these high-profile arrests for the penitentiary service as a whole and for its Director Gennady Kornienko?
