Ural thief in law from Ded Hasan’s gang deported under guard
Experts believe that Sukhach was sent to the Khabarovsk Region in order to "reduce risk for a number of persons."
Thief in law Oleg Sukhochev, known as Sukhach in criminal circles, left the pre-trial detention center №1 in Yekaterinburg. The criminal authority has served his sentence there since 2012. And now it was decided to transfer him from the Ural Region to the Far East in order to "reduce risk for a number of persons", according to Ura.ru sources.
Sukhach was sent to the Khabarovsk Region to serve his sentence. The General Administration of the Federal Penitentiary Service in the Sverdlovsk Region did not specify the location, where the thief in law would be transferred.
To remind: in June 2015, Sukhach was sentenced to 22 years in prison for misappropriation of assets. From 2009 to 2011, the thief in law, together with his accomplices, was engaged in criminal activities on seizure of companies’ assets in the Sverdlovsk and Kurgan Regions. Depending on the role played in the criminal activities, members of Sukhochev’s gang were charged under articles Extortion (item (a, b), part 3 of Art. 163), Preparations for a Crime, and Attempted Crimes (part 3 of Art. 30), Swindling (part 4 of Art. 159) and Legalisation (Laundering) of Monetary Funds or Other Property Acquired by a Person as a Result of an Offence Committed (part 3 of Art. 174.1). Staying of Sukhachev in a pre-trial detention center was prolonged, as the defense tried to appeal the verdict.
Oleg Sukhochev (Sukhach) was crowned in 2008, when under the protection of Aslan Usoyan (Ded Hasan) he was appointed the underboss in Nizhny Tagil. Sukhach was one of the companions of the former Vice-Mayor of Yekaterinburg Victor Konteev. Since the late 2000s, the thief in law had been executing special orders of criminal character of the convicted official, including organization of fruit and vegetables transportation to the vegetable warehouse №4 in Yekaterinburg. Sukhach took part in showdowns for the right to control customs posts on Russia-Kazakhstan border, trough which the main transportation route of fruits and vegetables went to the Ural capital. Ivan Obukhov, manager of a vegetable warehouse, made an impact in the thief in law’s arrest. In the beginning of 2016, Obukhov was also arrested on charges of attempted swindling of land of the Ural singer Alexander Novikov. It is worth noting that during the last few months, Sukhachev and Obukhov were kept in the same pre-trial detention center, which was very risky for the latter.
Transportation of thief in law Sukhachev from the Ural Region has changed structure of membership of the criminal world in the region. Previously, the CrimeRussia reported that since August, 2016 the recently released criminal authority Avtandil Kobeshavidze (Avto) came to Yekaterinburg, accompanied by Vladimir Zyatkov (Zyatek) from the Tyumen Region. In addition, the thief in law Konstantin Borisov (Kostyl) is expected to come to the Ural Region to serve his sentence in the near future.
Since early February, there has been a preventive operation of the National Police of Ukraine in cooperation with the border and migration services called ‘Migrant’. Its aim is to identify and expel thieves in law and foreign crime lords out of the country.
