Russian and Kazakhstani special services conducted an operation against a major organized crime group in Baikonur

In Kazakhstan, Russian and Kazakh special services carried out a special operation against a large and dangerous organized criminal group operating in the city of Baikonur, where the famous spaceport is located.


As it was possible to establish, the gang created by citizens of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation operated for a long time. Its participants were engaged in a variety of crimes - from theft and robbery to extortion and kidnapping.

The activities of the bandits had a negative impact on the crime situation in the city of Baikonur, as well as in the not so far away city of Kyzylorda. Meanwhile, in Baikonur there is a cosmodrome rented by Russia from Kazakhstan, so the presence of a large organized crime group here threatened, among other things, national security and the interests of the Russian state.

The gang members were detained not only in Baikonur itself, but also in Astana, Kyzylorda and Konaev. In total, law enforcement officers detained 18 leaders and active members of the group. Now the investigating and operational authorities are investigating their involvement in the commission of crimes of a common criminal nature.

Recall that in January 2022, mass riots took place in Kazakhstan. Local criminal groups also actively participated in them, which were used for their own purposes by customers and "puppeteers" of unrest. Therefore, it is possible that the arrested bandits will also be checked for involvement in actions against the state system of Kazakhstan.

    Something has long been known about lawlessness in Baikonur, even like a couple of years ago, some were already taken.

      Something else amazes me, they were taken up only when they got mad and began to "threaten national security and the interests of the Russian state." I have one suspicion that it is high time to hang the police and the prosecutor's office of that region on poles with a garland, because of the uselessness of their existence? They don't have Stalin.

    Isn't it from such or similar "OPGs" that the legs of arrivals to Engels grow? This is much more realistic than a flight across the floor of the European part of the Russian Federation. The border of Kazakhstan with the Russian Federation, apart from the main roads, is not so insurmountable, to put it mildly.

      I think so too. They don’t serve in the NATO Armed Forces, but sending a drone to such a distance, in the presence of airfields located much closer, is a so-so idea.

      Organized crime groups will not get dirty in such cases. They have their own well-established "business", why should they get involved with attacks on airfields?

        Then it's not for them to decide. Or do they stop working quickly. Or do you doubt that major intelligence services have methods of influence in criminal areas?

    Yes, sir, there is something to profit from the spaceport, it was proved by the Vostochny ... I hope they will cut the wings of these vultures.

      I just read about Baikonur, I have a suspicion that the organized crime group took control of the supply of Baikonur, except for military cargo of course. And everything else is imported by road and rail. spaceport workers and other residents at times. Baikonur even has its own numbers, region 94. Most likely they robbed on the roads, like we had in the 90s.

    I was surprised what kind of city Konaev was. I looked on the Internet. This is the former city of Kapshagai, renamed by President Tokayev to perpetuate the memory of the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Kazakhstan in 1960-1962 and 1964-1986 (part of this period was also a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU) Kunaev.

    Cities like Baikonur should be closed to outsiders. It’s not like organized crime groups, there shouldn’t be hucksters there. You need to check everyone, especially the bosses, so that they don’t sell secrets or cut money ....

    After all, it is very convenient to rob when the bandits are well aware of what exactly this or that truck is carrying in transit through the short circuit.

      hi Greetings buddy!
      I haven’t heard about the robberies of transit trucks for a long time, the trucks are covered by other "businessmen" ... with shoulder straps and with flashing lights, these are their cows and they milk them!

    The city of Kapchigay was first renamed Kapshagay. Now they renamed Kunaev to Konaev. Apparently, national self-consciousness suffered greatly from the name and surname, it is not enough to hear in Kazakh.
