Umka, Sharik, Poltava, Lera Sumskoy, Nedelya are Ukraine’s biggest thieves in law
The National Police named the vors (thieves in law) residing in the country.
According to security officials, there are 40 to 45 thieves in law residing in Ukraine. The figures may vary, as some of the vors tend to leave the country from time to time. Vyacheslav Abroskin, first deputy head of the National Police of Ukraine, spoke about this in an interview with the Fakty.
According to Abroskin, the number of vetted thieves reduced to 30 people because there are foreign vors aside from the "homegrown" ones. Lera Sumskoy is the patriarch of the thieves' world, he said.
The deputy head of the National Police also listed the rest of the well-known crime lords.
“Poltava, who is believed to be staying in Odessa, but at the same time is often seen in the Dnipropetrovsk region. Sharik is also "doing business" in the port city”.
Umka represents the younger generation of the Dnepropetrovsk thieves, the National Police official believes. Nedelya is living in Kiev and is in charge of the region.
“Those are our most notorious thieves in law, the Ukrainian ones, that is. There are still non-Ukrainians or those who got their citizenship through a fraud,” the general said.
He added that Georgian mafia bosses come to Ukraine more often than others since the neighboring state had passed an anti-vor law.
“We have quite a lot of them. The thieves who are not Ukrainian citizens, mostly Georgians, there are 25 or 30 of those. Antimos, Melo, Gelani and so on. The list is long,” the general said.
He added that globally and locally the problems are similar: 70% of thieves in law are from Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia.
The official car of former Deputy Head of Roskomnadzor and now Deputy Head of the Department of Project Activities of the Government of the Russian Federation, Maksim Ksenzov, tried to ram two foreign cars, after which an unknown person, who jumped out of the third car, crashed the car mirrors and beat up his driver.
The owner of the Norebo Group, Vitaly Orlov, seems to be having more problems every day. No sooner had he been recognized as Russia’s richest fishing industrialist with a net worth of over $1 billion that he got bombarded with lawsuits and criminal cases. So far, they have only been coming from his former business partner. However, taking into account all the new facts that indicate some opaque business practices at best, the authorities may take some issues with the billionaire as well, since there have been discrepancies in the figures of the fish supplied abroad, the prices, and the final profit, which may indicate attempted tax avoidance.
Crimea faces storm again. Sergey Aksenov may lose his post. Perhaps, he decided to play it safe and arrange a public scandal – his appointee to the Head of the Simferopol administration post. It is believed that Igor Lukashev and his seven deputies were allegedly dismissed due to the significant number of complaints from citizens about the traffic collapse, the poor state of road maintenance and cleaning of the city. The CrimeRussia tries to find out the real reason for the resignation of the Simferopol administration.
