As of now Ivankov is still in critical condition. Oniani has been arrested for organizing the kidnapping of a Moscow businessman. It is also believed that Oniani fears revenge for ordering the hit on Ivankov. But revenge from whom? From a close associate and ally of Ivankov, "Vor v Zakone" Ded Hasan and other criminal "authorities" like him.
