Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
Death of thief-in-law Aslan Usoyan known as Ded Hassan will affect Armenia, Sergey Galoyan, writer, author of a series of books on criminal authorities, told media. Friday.
He said that Ded Hassan was closely connected with Armenia. He often visited Armenia and had serious ties with Armenians. He was the organizer of the funerals of Rafael Baghdasaryan (Svo Raf), a known thief-in-law, in 1993. Galoyan drew the attention to the fact that there were Armenians among Ded Hassan's bodyguards.
The writer said that at present there are for candidates to the "throne of the king of mafia". However, he refused to name them. He is concerned that the future "king of mafia" will not have as goods relations with Armenia as Ded Hassan. So, the death of the famous thief-in-law will affect Armenia and the spheres of influence in the criminal world may be redistributed.
Mafia boss Ded Hassan was killed by a sniper near a restaurant in Moscow. Experts say that the only one to be able to confront with Ded Hassan was Tariel Oniani (Taro), a thief-in-law. Russian mass media report that the enmity of the clans of Taro and Ded Hassan began yet in 1980.
Galoyan also confirmed the Mass Media reports that Taro may be behind Ded Hassan's death. He believes that after the death of the mafia boss the criminal war of the Russian and Georgian clans will gradually end.
