As it became known to Kommersant, the investigating authorities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia opened a criminal case against the previously convicted Igor Syzhko (Ukrainian). According to the decision of the Ministry of Justice, the Ukrainian tramp, who has a respected status in the criminal environment, should have been expelled from the country, but later the security forces decided that for starters, he, as a criminal authority, should serve his term in Russia.
According to Kommersant, a criminal case against Igor Syzhko was opened by the investigative unit of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Lipetsk Region, whose employees reviewed the materials of operational-search activities received from the regional FSB, UFSIN and the criminal investigation department. They said that Syzhko, who has the nickname Ukrainian and does not have registration in Russia, in January 2019 received the status of a tramp, highly respected in the criminal world, “obliging, in accordance with the existing unspoken norms and rules, all persons with a lower criminal status to obey his will instructions and instructions.” Syzhko, using unquestioning authority among persons adhering to a criminal ideology, having “organizational and managerial functions” in relation to them, preserving criminal traditions and customs, extended “the sphere of his criminal influence on the territory” of FKU IK-3 UFSIN. This colony, designed for 1.5 thousand prisoners, is located in the city of Yelets, Lipetsk region. It was open even before the Great Patriotic War, but then changed its name and regime for prisoners several times. At one time it was considered exemplary. Suffice it to say that the institution was visited by the Minister of Justice Yury Chaika (later the Prosecutor General, and now the presidential envoy to the North Caucasus Federal District), who opened the production of ceramic bricks in addition to the already existing sewing workshop.
Investigators of the Lipetsk police decided that the Ukrainian occupies the highest position in the criminal hierarchy, having initiated a case against him under the relevant Art. 210.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which threatens the “tramp” with imprisonment for a term of 8 to 15 years in a strict regime.
It is interesting that the Ukrainian became a defendant in the investigation at the moment when he was waiting in the Center for the temporary detention of foreign citizens to be deported to Ukraine, of which he is a citizen.
The decision on Syzhko’s undesirable stay (residence) on the territory of the Russian Federation was made by the Ministry of Justice at the end of January of this year, but it turned out to be quite difficult to execute it under the conditions of a special military operation.
Prior to this, the Ukrainian was twice prosecuted in Russia. In 2015, by the verdict of the Golovinsky District Court of Moscow, he received ten months in a penal colony for attempted robbery (Article 30 and Article 161 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) – for trying to steal a wallet from a citizen’s bag in a grocery store. And in 2018, he sat down for robbery (Article 162 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) by decision of the Lyubertsy City Court of the Moscow Region. The crime, according to the verdict, was committed in a shopping center.
In one of the stores, the “tramp” liked Umbro walking boots worth 1037 rubles. 29 kop. After making sure that no one was watching his criminal actions, the Ukrainian took off the anti-theft device from his boots, put them on himself and, without paying for the goods, left the outlet. At the same time, he left his wet sneakers at the crime scene.
At the exit from the outlet where the detector was installed, a signal went off, but he showed the guard an empty bag and left. However, finding old sneakers instead of new ones, the guard chased Ukrainian and, together with the administrator, tried to detain him. Then the “tramp” wounded one of them with a knife. At this time, the police drove up to the shopping center, and the attacker was handcuffed. The new shoes cost him five years and five months of high security.
