'Grandpa Hassan', Kurds and Russian KGB

Publication time: 21 January 2013, 15:04

Foreign press did not fail to mention criminal conflicts in Moscow, which led to the murder of one of the most renowned ringleaders of the Russian criminal underworld "Grandpa Hassan" (aka Aslan Usoyan, a native of Georgia and ethnic Kurd).

 

Special interest in this criminal history had been shown by Turkish media. This interest is due primarily to the fact that the criminal leader was originally a Kurd, and also because of information about the involvement of Usoyan in arms sales to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

 

As a Turkish newspaper Aksam notes, Usoyan was killed in a sniper attack as the result of a bloody settling of accounts in the criminal world. He played a crucial role in ensuring the flow of arms for the PKK from Russia. 

 

On the other hand, a newspaper Yeni Safak reported about personal relationships between the murdered thug with the leaders of the Workers Party of Kurdistan, particularly with Abdullah Ocalan. It is noted that during his stay in Moscow, Ocalan stayed in the house of "Grandpa Hassan".

 

The newspaper provides a statement by a reporter from Russian newspaper "Novaya Gazeta" Sergei Kanev that had been published during the first attempt on the life Usoyan in 2010 for the portal http://www.haberrus.com/, in which, referring to the Russian Interior Ministry official, the reporter says that arms supplies to Kurds, who are fighting against the Turks, are mainly carried out by Aslan Usoyan and Zakhar Kalashov, nicknamed "Shakro". 

 

Quoting a news agency, SV Press, a Turkish newspaper Milliyet adds that Usoyan called himself "the chief patron of the Kurds". It is reported that in 2008, a meeting was held in Baku between Usoyan and a Kurd, nicknamed "Bilo". During the meeting, they discussed plans to deploy in Russia some of the Kurds living in Turkey. 

 

A columnist from a newspaper Turkiye, with obvious allusion to Moscow, concludes that the murder of the criminal boss in Russia and his links with the PKK, pose new questions in light of worsening the Kurdish problem and terrorism in Turkey.

 

It is to be mentioned that without knowledge and assistance from the Russian KGB, "Grandpa Hassan" could not supply weapons to the Kurdish group, which is funded and armed by Moscow since the days of the Soviet Union, and Ankara is well aware of this.

 

The information that all influential leaders of Russia's criminal underworld cooperate with the secret police has long been an open secret.
