Yesterday, March 11, operatives of the Criminal Investigation Department of the National Police of Ukraine in conjunction with their colleagues from Kyiv's Police have detained 43-year-old citizen of Georgia Gocha Kakhidze in Kyiv. The person is also known in criminal rings as Kursha, Censor.NET reports citing the Public Relations Department of the National Police of Ukraine.
The police officers together with representatives of the State Migration Service of Ukraine found that the arrested citizen was not who he pretended to be. He actually was a native of Georgia but his name was Dzhincharadze in the past.
In addition, according to the information of Interpol, the detainee falls into the category of persons with criminal status of "code-bound criminal lord" and has a criminal nickname Kursha. The man was repeatedly convicted in the Russian Federation and the Republic of Georgia.
Kursha had already been detained and banished from Ukraine for three years in Sept. 2014. The court's decision to deport the detainee from Ukraine has already been fulfilled.
National Police First Deputy Chief Vadym Troian said that most of the so-called "code-bound criminal lords" are supervised by the FSB (Russian Security Agency - Ed.) while the mobsters themselves have influence on some officials in the Ukrainian government.
"And Russia sends them to us for obvious reasons, not because of "brotherly" love," Vadym Troian said.
