Rovshan Lenkoransky’s murder in Istanbul may set off criminal war in Moscow
Murder of the criminal leader Rovshan Lenkoransky (Dzhaniev), which took place in the capital of Turkey, may trigger a serious repartition of spheres of influence and crime wars in Moscow. An informed source of Rosbalt news agency came up with this version.
According to the source, it is not just about the revenge for Aslan Usoyan's elimination (Ded Hasan), the direct instigator of which, as thieves in law believe, was Dzhaniev. The enemies of Lenkoransky and his gang had a vested interest.
Before his death, Dzhaniev had the biggest wholesale greenery market in the Moscow region under his control; however, a thief in law Vagif Suleymanov, whose long-term operation is supported by Zakhariy Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy) arrested last month, has had his sights set on the market since last year.
The confrontation between the criminal gangs competing for the market was set off last year, with both parties bearing losses. In spring 2016, a businessman Dzhambulat Shamil-ogly, who supported Vagif Suleymanov, was murdered.
Rovshan Lenkoransky's gang gained significant momentum after Shakro Molodoy's arrest, striving to regain lost ground in the wholesale trade of greenery.
The source believes that now it is time for a response from Vagif's people, who have launched a man-hunt for members of the Lenkoransky crime group, which had been deprived of its leader. There is now a risk of a new criminal war.
Let us recall that on the night of August 18, the de-crowned criminal leader Rovshan Dzhaniev, also known as Rovshan Lenkoransky, was shot in Istanbul; Rovshan had once been the enemy of the killed Ded Hasan and had been considered one of the mandators in his murder. Lenkoransky’s car was shot with automatic weapons at close range by at least three experienced killers.
At first it was reported that Lenkoransky was murdered by Turkish Kurds killed out of revenge for Ded Khasan. Later it became known that Shakro Molodoy's people were involved in Dzhaniev's murder, namely Lasha Shushanashvili (Lasha Rustavsky), Yury Pichugin (Pichuga), and Vasily Khristoforov (Vasya Voskres).
