• Gangs in the Soviet Union, which caused a stir cruelty
In the most advanced and the most honest in the world of crime could not be. At least on paper. In open official records up to 70-ies of the last century, almost did not meet the definition of "murder", "theft", "robbery" and certainly was not going to talk about "mythical" criminal groups. However, outside of the official reports, gangs have flourished and developed in all the republics of the Soviet Union. Black cat, anyhow, sanitation - Today we will tell you about the most famous and the most violent criminal groups of the USSR.
In just three years of existence of "black cat" became a legend. Ivan Mitin, the leader of the brutal Raiders, did not stop at nothing to achieve the goal. Moscow for the first time heard about the "black cat" in February, 1950, when the robbers shot the officer of the criminal investigation department, who decided alone to prevent shoplifting. By winter 1953 the gang committed a series of violent and daring raids - the bandits did not hesitate to indulge in arms, the victims were many. Caught "black cat" out of stupidity, one of the gang members bought on the street with a barrel of beer and gave a free hand, and this attracted the attention of accidentally wormed his way into the crowd of officers from the CID. For generous citizen followed, which allowed to enter the other members of the gang. Gang leaders sentenced to death, others hid in the distant camp.
"Anyhow," I was born in Kazan, from a small youth group athletes, who lived near the plant "Teplokontrol". Tired of the pointless fights with guys from other regions, leader of the group, Zavdat Hantimirov, decided it was time to make money. That's because of the youth of the company there was one of the most violent organized crime groups of the Soviet Union: the account "anyhow" countless assassinations and robberies. At the peak of OPG has 300 active members - a small army of thugs, ready to do anything for the sake of order and money. Only in 1980, with the capture of the leader Zavdata Hantemirova and his accomplice Iskander Tazetdinova, managed to break up the gang.
More than half of the members of this strange band Leningrad successfully combined the robbery and the police service. He organized a "White Cross" district Arkady Makeev. Understanding the principles of the Criminal Investigation allows criminals to make bold, unexpected raids on large stores and even cash collection vehicles. No case of the "White Cross" without death is not complete, for OPG reached a bloody trail. Makeyev summed overconfidence: on another robbery, he went in the car with the trunk full of weapons and anti-Soviet posters. Leader of the group stopped at a regular document check, looked in the trunk - and here the story "White Cross" is over.
The gang consisted of two people, Yuri Kazakov and Vadim Sidorov. "Guest performers" began their criminal trip from Kiev. In August 1971 the raiders killed a policeman to get hold of captured weapons and set off to travel around the country. Over the next two years Kazakov and Sidorov visited almost every republic of the Soviet Union. Severe Ural bandits, leaving a lot of dead bodies, caught in 1973 on a train in the banal checking passports. "Guest performers" were able to jump out of the compartment window at full speed, but only managed to escape Sidorov - Kazakov sprained foot. A month later he was arrested and the second "on tour". Both have received the death penalty.
OCG members Rostov to raid disguised as doctors and nurses - is simple, but as it turned out, an effective tactic. By looting of small shops "Medics" gradually shifted to armed robbery, contract killings and the trade in illegal drugs. Just last point was the weak point of the Rostov OPG: investigators managed to reach the merchant of death Zafasa Bartsissa, who do the dirty work for "Medics" hands of their dependent clients. Bartsiss split fairly quickly and the whole gang arrested in hot pursuit. Leaders received the highest measure, other "escaped" a very long prison sentence.
