Russian gangster Aslan 'Djako' Gagiev sentenced to life

Aslan Gagiev 'Djako' has been handed a life sentence by a court in Rostov, Russia.
Gagiev formed three gangs in North Ossetia and was responsible for up to 60 killings. These included the murders of Dmitry Plytnik, owner of National Capital Bank, Alexander Slesarev, shareholder of Sodbiznesbank and Credittrust Bank, and Oleg Novoselsky, chairman of the board of Kutuzovsky Bank. Gagiev, who had been hiding in Austria, was extradited to Russia in 2018. Gagiev’s claims of innocence and his attempts to portray himself as a victim fell flat.
