Thief in law No. 1 is at large
29.03.2024 18:23

As the telegram channel VChK-OGPU reported, on March 29, thief in law No. 1 Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy) was released. The organization of his meeting was carried out by the “authorities” Martin Babakekhyan and Alexander Zakharov (Sandro). After leaving the walls of the correctional facility, Shakro immediately went to his cottage on Rublyovka, and then he will have to undergo a long treatment. In the colony, Shakro became practically blind, which was the reason for his release for medical reasons. However, this does not mean that Shakro will not engage in business in the mafia world (this is precisely why he was released). Sources say that Shakro will make decisions gradually, without any “sudden movements.”

Earlier, the Cheka-OGPU found out how the preparations for the release of thief in law No. 1 Zakhary Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy) took place and who would form his closest circle. These are Martin Babakekhyan and Alexander Zakharov (Sandro), who were tried for the murder of the governor of the Magadan Territory, Valentin Tsvetkov. It is believed that, despite the severe pressure, they did not hand over the “customer” Shakro.

Shakro’s former headquarters was located in the building of the Golden Palace casino, but all the premises there were rented out after Kalashov’s “landing”. Presumably, the new headquarters of thief in law No. 1 will be in the Match Point entertainment center on Novy Arbat. This is an object close to a “criminal general.”

Kalashov will have no problems with his “controlled” and “protected” business structures, as well as with his “militants” after leaving. In recent years, two “authorities” have monitored the observance of his interests in all areas - Martin Babakekhyan and Alexander Zakharov. The first is responsible for all of Shakro’s business interests, and the second is for the “power bloc.” Previously, the functions of consigliere under Shakro were performed by the “authority” Andrei Kochuykov (Italian). But he sat down a little earlier than Shakro, and all Kalashov’s attempts to release him ahead of schedule were unsuccessful. Now Martin and Sandro have become such. Although, of course, after his release the Italian will have an honorable place in Kalashov’s hierarchy.

Recently, all representatives of the mafia and business community knew Martin and Sandro as representatives of Shakro and his most trusted persons. The story of the relationship is very interesting.

In 2011, the Moscow City Court issued a verdict in the case of the murder of the governor of the Magadan region, Valentin Tsvetkov, committed in October 2002. They shot him, Martin Babakekhyan received 19 years of strict regime, Alexander Zakharov - 17 years. The person who ordered the murder and the motives were never established. Martin and Sandro categorically refused to testify on this matter.

   They ended up in the Russian Federation after they were arrested on July 7, 2006 in the Spanish resort of Marbella, and then Spain handed them over to the Russian Federation.

Kalashov was deported from Spain much later, in 2014, when Martin and Sandro were already serving long sentences. It was never even mentioned that they were somehow connected.

However, according to the Cheka-OGPU, in Spain Martin and Sandro were part of Shakro’s inner circle. Immediately after his forced return to Moscow in 2014, Kalashov said that he was ready to pay “any money” for the release of Martin and Sandro. It was not possible to free them, but Kalashov managed to ensure that they served their sentences in comfortable colonies and conditions.

And Martin and Sandro were released after Shakro himself was arrested and convicted of extortion, but much earlier than they were supposed to serve. And again, in the criminal world they are sure that Kalashov “had a hand” in their release, since Martin Babakekhyan and Alexander Zakharov “received almost 20 for him” and did not surrender. To put it simply, it was Shakro who ordered the murder of Tsvetkov.

“Thief in law No. 1” Zakhar Kalashova (Shakro Molodoy), after his release, will be on a very “strong hook” with the FSB officers of the Russian Federation who organized his freedom.

According to documents published by the Cheka-OGPU, after the arrest of Kalashov and his “right hand” Andrei Kochuykov (Italian) for extortion, the FSB Investigation Department opened another case under Article 210 (organization of a criminal community) of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation against Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy ) and under Part 2 of Article 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (participation in a criminal community) in relation to Kochukyov. Also, a case was opened against Kalashov under Article 291 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (giving a bribe). Mafiosi are listed as “suspects” in these cases. They were convicted of extortion, but materials on other charges remain gathering dust in the Investigative Directorate of the FSB of the Russian Federation. But at any moment they can be “blown away.”

As found out, employees of the “K” department of the FSB of Russia are currently deciding which of the thieves in law should go to jail, who should run away, and who should be free to walk around Moscow. For example, “thief in law Albert Red” (Ali Heydarov), with the assistance of FSB officers, was released on parole from a colony in Mari El in the summer of 2020, after which he began to live in Moscow and control part of the business of Azerbaijani clans, including drug trafficking, and did this successfully, so how he was endowed with immunity. He was also given the task of countering I love my fellow countrymen (immigrants from the Republic of Azerbaijan), both businessmen and criminals. Ali Heydarov, together with thief in law Badri Koguashvili (Badri Kutaissky), lived on the territory of Moscow, engaged in criminal activities without hindrance, since they were not subject to the “thieves’ article”, under which quite a few of their colleagues were detained or were forced to leave RF. For example, on May 28, 2020, the Medvedevsky District Court ruled to release Albert Ryzhiy on parole; a little later, on June 6, 2020, his enemy, thief in law Lesha Irkutsky (Alexey Gudyna), was detained under the crime of larceny, and on June 9, Albert Ryzhiy was released, and his main enemy went to rest, so FSB officers cleared the way for “Badri Kutaissky” and “Albert Ryzhy”, who were also joined by businessman Zaur Akhmedov (brother of thief in law “Rovshan Lenkoransky”). This trio successfully completed the tasks assigned to them, but this did not last long, due to the fact that in April 2021, “Albert the Red” was killed. The Azerbaijanis were orphaned, “Badri Kutaisi” was left without a partner.

Since September 2021, thief in law Rufo Gyandzhinsky (Ulfat Tagiyev), who was the godson of Rovshan Lyankoransky, has been released from prison. Rufo Gyandzhinsky should have been expelled from the Russian Federation by the migration service officers upon his exit, since, according to the decision of the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, his stay on the territory of the Russian Federation was undesirable, but the Deputy Minister changed his mind, due to the fact that FSB officers intervened in this process, because they needed replace Albert the Red. Thus, Badri Kutaisi has a new partner. The new composition of the so-called “trio” is still engaged in criminal activities on the territory of the Russian Federation, and colleagues in the shop have many questions about them, since together with FSB officers, this trio made the decision to expel unwanted people and those who were seen as a threat. For example: the killer of “Albert the Red” Matlab Sultanov (Azerbaijani by origin) from the moment of detention until the court verdict claimed and to this day claims that he killed Albert the Red because of personal hostility, but this did not suit the above trinity, due to than their patrons from the FSB, they took information out of thin air that Thief in Law Namik Bakinsky (Namik Salifov) was involved in the murder of Albert Ryzhy as a customer, they put it all on paper and submitted it to the Investigative Committee in the form of a certificate. Based on this certificate, Namik Bakinsky was put on the international wanted list.
